(rest day)

A trip to Golden with family, CO, Carbon and her parents.
We hanged out at the Kicking Horse Resort, saw Boo the grizzly bear who lives there, in an enclosure; took the Gondola to the top - awesome views and amazing biking trails!
Made plans with Carbon to go back next year and do a backcountry hiking trip in the area :)

Trail running (Hiking) 4:30:00 [3] 22.96 km (11:46 / km) +723m 10:10 / km
shoes: Salomon Speedcross 4

Iceline Trail with friends
We started running around 8am, to escape as much heat as possible. Did the loop counter-clockwise. First section was mostly runnable till be got to the Laughing Falls, then we started to hike up to the Stanley Mitchell hut. We had a nice long break there, enjoying the surrounding views and the meadow. From there is was a run/hike to the Iceline Summit, at 2230m. Then the trail started going down - awesome running on a single track, rocky path, with the view of the Takakkaw Falls and the Yoho valley to the left and glaciers to the right. We decided to add few extra kms and run to the Yoho Lake instead of going straight down. It was so worth it and we all jumped in to the amazement of the Japanese tourists. From there, it was less than 5km down to the car.
Great day and super fun group!

Dirtbag session
Warm up to the hills. Jeff picked 2 steep hills for us to run, side by side. One, he said was 'not runnable' :) We did 2 repeats of each. I hiked parts of them, with my hands on the knees and tongue out! :)

Trail Culture run in the Nordic Centre. I joined the mid-caff group, Miles was leading. The common theme was: 'no rest for Marta' - every time I caught up to the group, while they were waiting at a trail intersection, they took off right away :)
