Running 3:30:00 [3] 10.0 mi (21:00 / mi) +3000ft 16:21 / mi
shoes: Pearl Izumi N2 Trail, #2

Meadow Mtn Loop in the St. Vrain area with MA and Berlin. We dipped down to the headwaters of Finch Lake, off trail, overlooking the spectacular Wild Basin. We were scoping a campsite and we found several great options. Beautiful weather. Beautiful views. Looking forward to returning...

(the climb up to Meadow Mtn from the St. Vrain Mtn trailhead was brutal. Steep enough as is, but especially tough after a 10,000 ft. / 35 mile day yesterday. But I found momentum and managed to push on / ran the entire way up to the saddle)

Running 9:30:00 [3] 34.4 mi (16:34 / mi) +10000ft 13:00 / mi
shoes: Pearl Izumi N2 Trail, #2

One of my best runs of the season.

Left house at 5:27am and was running at Cow Creek Trailhead at 6:57am. Up the North Boundary Trail (which skirts the Rocky Mountain National Park / Comanche Peaks Wilderness border) to North Fork Trail, up that to Stormy Peaks Pass, then down to Pingree Park / the CSU research Station.... and back. Reached the car at 4:27pm.

I found a new favorite place to camp along the way.

Sun was warm and sky was clear all day. Barely saw a soul.

Ate: 1 PB & honey, 1 rice ball, 1 fruit squeeze, 1 pack orange crackers, 1 pack sesame crackers.

Drank: 4.5L.... could have had more. Dipped from the stream near my new favorite camping spot (twice). Untreated, as always...

New running pack! After 3 years, my beloved Osprey rev6 was falling apart. Bought the Scott Jurek ultimate direction and LOVED it. Much lighter weight, and my first time running with only 1.5L at a time. I got by, and appreciated the lighter load.

Lots of things in the air today - cessnas, grasshoppers, clark's nutcrackers, music....everything but me. Enough is enough - time to fly!

A spectacular day, topped by finding a very very rare lichen (legally collected in Comanche Peaks). Huge bowl of thai and a beer to follow.

(note to self for future use: the above plots only 30 miles, but extensive signage in both RMNP and Comanche Peaks shows the route is exactly 34.4 miles RT...)

Road run up past Lickskillet and back... REALLY great run. Felt mostly pain free for the first time in a couple of weeks. Fast and strong on the downhill. Met a new friend / neighbor, who was biking alongside me for awhile.... Mike.
