|Running near Winter Park, Colorado|
Sharon and I did a few longish morning runs through the surrounding forests, including one memorable 20km run. The runs from Winter Park tended to be all uphill on the way out and downhill on the way back and I tended to get ahead of Sharon on the climbs and get caught on the descents. This particular run was following the usual pattern and I had a lead by the time we passed through the highest point and began our descent back to civilization.
|The moose takes fright and runs off|
I had been telling my fellow travellers that it can be hard to see moose, and never expected to have one come to see me. I suspect it was a young male checking me out, but don't really know. It's always a thrill to encounter large animals in the wild.
For training today, I ran an easy 6.5km, still conscious of some sensitivity in my right heel, and followed that with nine holes of golf. I will run a bit harder tomorrow.
