The trail flowed into a sweet uphill, shaded by Aspens, through some rock gardens, down to crystal clear lakes, climbing back into Pine Trees, & diving back down a single trail of switchbacks. I was totally looking for bear or moose because of the density of the forest. Lions and tigers and bears…..

I then plugged in the old Garmin & couldn't believe my eyes. Shadow & I hiked/ran 7.71 miles in 2 hrs 11 min. We started out at 10,103ft and peaked out at 10,972ft with a pace of 15:41min ave mile!!!! I was so stoked!!!! Again, every time I looked at my Garmin, it was like, 22min mile or 35min mile, & I had no idea what was my running pace was. I ran the flats & some of the easy decent if the footing allowed. It was more like a shuffle when I was falling uphill.
Totally feeling much better about the Lead King 25K in Sept. My next post will have photos from my B-Day lunch, The next day of trail running, update on how the legs felt/recovered, & tile work from the Animal Hospital. Still can't believe its almost Aug….. Thanx 4 Stopping By
