Tuesday Evening Run

I ran just before sundown for a bit of natural light. This photo was taken heading up towards Green Mountain (Lakewood):

Looking back down on the Denver area from a small hill:

No other humans have been using this trail:

It was peaceful and not that cold but it was quite windy above the trees, with maybe 25 mph winds, and my face and arms were getting pretty chilly.

Distance was 6.3 miles, time 1:11, elevation gain/loss 830 feet. Felt good, but after 40 minutes of a decent turnover my energy was lacking. Too many days of easy runs and 10 days of illness has eroded my strength a tad.
