Well deserved rest after Sunday’s 100 miler


Bouldering @ Movement, 2 hours


Talk at Bent Gate

Thanks once again for Bent Gate for allowing me to come over and share some stories and knowledge. As usual, I probably learned more from all of you, then you learned from me!

A photo from, perhaps, my first summit of Loveland Pass many years ago:

And another time, (same bike!) set up as a fixed gear a few years ago:


Bouldering @ Movement, 2 hours

Felt sensationally terrible – as if two years of training just hadn’t been done.

Spin bike, 1 hour


Spin bike, 2 hours


Bouldering @ Movement, 2 hours

Felt a bit more like my regular self. Nothing really else to report.

Chapman Ride

Green Mountain

Good run up, with a little more effort on the uphill, and an easier downhill. Some cramps on the uphill tempered my pace, though.

My training this week was all over the place, but I was looking for a long day with massive elevation, so when Fred put together this idea for his Church of the Holy Trail run – four laps up Green Mountain by different routes (mostly off-trail), that seemed perfect.

I’m mostly a loner (Dottie: a rebel!),

but I try to get myself out to enjoy these outdoor activities with others – probably a healthy idea! Thanks for everyone’s comradery! I’ll be back!
