Bolder Boulder

The 10k Memorial Day road race, attracted about 50,000 amateur runners this year. The weather was great, a little warm, but great for being outside and experiencing a huge event like this.

On the elite side, there are winners:

Edna Kiplagat





....and Ridouane Harroufi who came from behind in the last minute to pull off a spectacular win.



Then there are the sufferers. It's hard when you train so hard and give it all.

Centennial Cone Glow

Renee and I rode Centennial Cone Park near Golden Colorado today. It was fun except for our friend Dan almost chopped off his finger with his bike disc brakes. This happened in the parking lot before the ride...

Otherwise, it's a great trial if you like smooth and long extended gradual climbs and descents. Nothing technical to note.

Lots of good views too.

I'd say check it out and make sure you either do it weekday or on an even weekend day. it's on an alternating hiker/biker schedule.
