We made it back from our vacation at about 1:45 AM this morning, after driving straight through from Denver. It was a fun trip, and a great introduction to the mountains for the boys.
I was able to get some running in while we were gone—24 miles total, and all but 4 of which were at 9,000 feet in elevation or higher. I wonder how quickly the effect of high altitude training wears off? Anyway, I am definitely looking forward to getting my first run in back closer to sea level (should have been today…total slacker).
While in Colorado, we saw family, we saw friends, we saw deer, snakes, foxes, and snow. We relaxed, we hiked, we shopped for souvenirs, and we simply enjoyed some time decompressing.
As long as I don’t live there, I think I need to get back into the habit of an annual trip to Colorado—summer or winter, I don’t care, as long as I get back up there more often!
