After the morning ski I could not resist the great weather back home, so I went for a run over my neighborhood mountain/hill. It was a really hazy day, so whereas usually all the ridges blended together, this time every bump stood out in relief from the others. It made my little hill seem like a real mountain.
There was a group of riders summiting the mountain when I got up there. A blissful summit on a fantastic winter day, with the Front Range foothills behind us.
Distance was 8.63 miles, time 1:43 (moving 1:37), elevation gain/loss 1,490 feet, avg. pace 12:01 (moving 11:20), and best pace 7:04.
