Its one week before the Bolder Boulder, the big 10k race that takes place in Boulder every Memorial Day. Its a super fun race for both beginners (me) and seasoned athletes (not me). I run really slow. I mean, REALLY slow. I probably run slower most people walk. The best part about running slow is you get to see EVERYTHING.
There is this wonderful, 3-mile loop around my neighborhood that is my favorite "baseline" run (a run I'll do when I'm not training for anything). I ran it this morning and thought I'd share some pics.
There are mature trees, dirt paths, a winding, babbling creek, flowers, and giant ants. Well, not REAL ants. The kind you climb on :)
Once you get through the paths, it opens up into a huge open-spaced park with a soccer field, volleyball court and basketball court, swing sets and jungle-gyms. Its awesome!
It takes me 45 minutes to do this loop (told ya I was slow). So its not a big interruption and just the ticket when I need a break from the computer to clear my mind. Now that spring is here, I'm so excited to have the perfect 3-mile run right in my backyard!
