The first snow of the season here in Fort Collins yesterday. Well actually it was only rain in town, but just a little frosting on Horsetooth Mountain. I had planned a loop over White Pine Mountain (a great fall run), but the storm was significant enough out there to change plans. I'm never disappointed, however, running the local trails in Horsetooth and Lory Parks. The cool air this morning felt great! I even had some company near the end of my run when I hit the Soderberg/Spring Creek junction. My second bear sighting this year in Horsetooth Park.
Just a week ago we were pushing 90 degrees at the Blue Sky Marathon. I've added some photos to my sidebar (they are also on the race website) as I once again enjoyed hanging out at the Towers Road aid station. A great opportunity coming up to run some Fort Collins trails on October 22 and save a life.
