Race Schedule 2011
Here's the plan for the year so far... I don't like to much ahead, but its kind of necessary to avoid too many stupid situations. Hopefully I didn't forget anything. If you see something I forgot, please let me know.
I am still crossing my fingers for Hardrock. I'll know in less than a week. I also have a burro race on the calendar. That's tentative for now. There's some planning involved in that one. It's kind of a pain in the....

I'll leave with a picture or two taken while out running on the front range. These were taken a few weeks ago on Green Mtn. Green Mountain is an interesting park. It gets a bad name because it gets a lot of use by all sorts, and it's not too remote. BUT, in my opinion, it still offers some seclusion and lots of wildlife, and a good climb or two (hill repeats?). Add that to it's convenience, and its a winner in my book. The views of Denver from the top at night are some of the best around.
