Here is the 10-day forecast. Where me and the Hud are staying, add 6 degrees
Tuesday was the last day we got rain. Soooooo close to having all those mountain running trails open (per the running store today), just need 1 or 2 more rains
The fires were still going Tuesday evening
And Wednesday evening
And Thursday evening
And Saturday afternoon
Hudson has been a champ. I was worried because he had no desire to run with me. I had a chat and he said "Dude, it's 92 degrees out. Leave me alone"
So we have gone to the shady park 5x this week at 6am when it's in the low-60s. He has played with maybe 10 different dogs running around off-leash before people start to wake up and call the cops
Even though the trails have been closed running has gone well. In the 2 weeks I've been here have gotten 61-miles in with about 2,700' of elevation above 7,000'. Some of the running has been pretty interesting, from the fancy art neighbourhoods to Route 66 to the Rail Trail
Still...bought some new trail shoes today in hopes that the next two weeks will be done in the much cooler, shaded and hilly Dale Ball trails
The food here is fun. I'm especially fond of Green Chiles
Also this week Maureen was able to replace one more thing lost in the fire last year - this apron
Two more weeks and then it's off to Fairplay, CO for Burro Days!
