so I was a little(a lot) depressed tonight... I wasn't going to workout at all today, but I decided to to take Ramone on an 11PM run.

Back in Denver... but I think I left my phone in Vail!!! SH*T!!! Drove back to Vail... got my phone... drove home via Leadville, Buena Vista, and then home via 285... and did a little "junkin" - a few very good scores! I was very careful driving in the snow... I did see a Jeep Cherokee, a Sub-Urban, and a few other SUV roll-overs... a few stuck 2 wheel drives, but the serious crashes (that I saw) was all by people driving SUV's with too much confidence. Needless to say, today was a needed, but unscheduled, day off!

Actually this was an early morning snowshoe up the service road that parallels I-70 up vail pass... Ramone was so cute! I'll post a pic later...

So yeah, even though this was a snow shoe run, I want to include the miles in my running totals for the year. so there you go...

  • Snowboarding
  • 4h 00m

Beaver Creek... dumping snow all day... I rode hard! Starting to feel the groove...

So I'm up early... sitting here by the hot coals of last nights fire, and I'm looking at a large fox on my porch (near the front door)... I can not tell for sure, but I think he just pissed on my running shoes!

slow pm run with Ramone... we followed a cross country ski trail as far as we could until the dark made it impossible to continue, so we turned around.

  • Snowboarding

Snowboarding at vail. Rode really hard... I can tell that it was my first day back riding... Beaver Creek tomorrow!

Easy spin at Washington Park with Sergeant Vik... The park is still pretty icy in many spots so we kept it at a slow conversational pace

Dreadmill run before dinner... Campo Di Fiore tonight!

tight hammy

I am heading up to Vail for 3 days/2 nights... My buddy, Ted owns a condo at the Racquet Club in East Vail and is generous enough to let me borrow it for a few nights!! Hopefully, I can get some snowshoeing in and some excellent riding too! I love winter in Colorado!

  • 40m 18s
  • 12.00 miles
  • 17.87 Mi/hr

Recovery ride on the rollers... pretty easy... some no hands stretches... but that is about all.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket I feel a little worked this morning... I'm not sure if its because of the back to back races or all of the road sodas Vik and I consumed on the drive back from Beaver Creek... (we had a designated driver). Today may be a rest day... perhaps an easy spin on the bike at most... no running.

First Snow Shoe Race/first time running in snow shoes.

Beaver Creak... 10K 2000 feet of vertical...

1st place AG...
7th place overall
The only person on The Beaver Creek Snow Shoe team to beat me was Bernie Boettcher, but no one beats Bernie... unless you are world class Xterra triathlete, Seth Wealing, who won overall today...

I was very happy with today's race... I exceeded all of my goals and expectations and beat sponsored snowshoe racers from company's like Atlas... It's not my calling... but it won't be my last snowshoe race either.

Sergeant Vik and RidgeRunner were also out there kicking butt from BT today... The course was BRUTAL - I'll say it again, The course was BRUTAL

The entire route was covered in snow... the pavement and the trail was either ice, hard pack or fresh snow...

Very cold, but the sun made it feel pretty nice out there!

Surprisingly, there were a ton of racers today as well as a lot of BTers representing.
