    Just ran my 3rd 1/2 marathon.
    The Colorado/Colfax 1/2 marathon. On Sunday in City Park, Denver, Colorado.

    I have some pics of the last 2 weeks of training. In that 2 weeks, I have ran is 2 races.
    1- High Line Canal 5K(3.1 miles) run
    I did well there and got a personal record by over a minute...26:14
    2- Colorado/Colfax 1/2 marathon(13.1 miles)
    I did ok in this. no pr, but I ran hard and was spent at the end. And that is how it should be.

    Pic 1 is of me running the 5K.
    I didn't know my running shorts showed so much leg.

    This is of the pavillion at City Park in Denver, the day of the running expo, Saturday. It was cloudy and hazy otherwise Mt. Evans(14,200ft) would be in the background.

    Yeah...
    The thing is...
    Denver Colorado is NOT a year round biking mecca.
    I need to put my fancy bike away for at least 6 months a year.
    That's why I run...
