Winter (Running) is Coming!

Confession:  I have never seen one episode of Game of Thrones… but I am still familiar with way too many of the phrases/characters due to nerdy friends and coworkers. This morning I woke up to a brisk 35 degrees. I was going to go do CrossFit, but I checked the WOD and it consisted of a lot of hand stand push ups. I don’t have too much interest in that type of CrossFitting, so I decided to hit the trails instead.

It was grey and chilly, so I bundled up. I usually only wear long pants and gloves unless its under 40 degrees, so it just barely qualified today. Especially since I’m not used to this cold weather. Winter is right around the corner. I’m sure it will snow soon enough.

You could definitely see how the floods that racked Boulder a month ago had eroded the parts of the trail that went by the creek.

ImageSome of them had been closed completely and were closed to the public.

I’m sure most of this will take a year or more to even begin to be repaired, especially with winter on its way.  I usually love trail running during the winter, so I’ll have to be on the look out for trails that haven’t been destroyed so I can enjoy some winter wonderland trail action when the snow hits.

How did you spend your Tuesday?
