Really stupid...

If an idea is good, it's on the verge of being stupid. ~ Michel Gondry

I have always had this theory… get a group of people in a room, throw out a bunch of ideas and at the end of the night, look at your list to find the most idiotic and that's the one you should do.

This blog was spawned from one very stupid idea - run the Leadville 100. I gave that a shot in the summer of '07 - completed 73 miles - and survived. The blog lives on...

LIfe in the mountains...

Summertime, summertime, sum, sum, summertime. ~ The Jamies

Yesterday: Run - Habitrail, 1 hour 20 minutes
Today: Singlespeed ride - Casa del Critters, 1 hour
Tomorrow: Run - Front Range Five, 5 hours

Have I mentioned recently how much I enjoy living up here? Summer is upon us... more so in some places than others. While it swelters in the valley, up in the mountains we are treated with near perfect conditions. Cool nights, warm, but tolerable days. Just wonderful. I feel a pang of sorrow when I see the snows shrinking on the mountaintops but know that come October, they will begin to load up anew.

Things are going well working from home. I got a lot of work done yesterday and have been working most of the day today. I spoke with a client about expanding my services to help their business and will be setting up a meeting soon to discuss the details of that endeavor. Luke has a lot of work coming in too so I am confident that I can make this work. Good times.

Luke and I went on a mellow run yesterday evening on the trail system West of Nederland. This was originally a bike trail that was put in several years ago and dubbed "The Habitrail" as it resembles those cool tunnel systems one can build out for their hamsters. It winds around the woods and used to have several technical obstacles along the way that have since been disassembled for some reason. It was a gorgeous night - perfect weather, really - and our pace was such that we were able to review some business stuff, go over Leadville strategy and enjoy the scenery without getting too worn out.

Tomorrow, we are planning an early start in Boulder on the Front Range Five. This will be a run/hike over the five main summits that make up the main peaks along the foothills west of Boulder: Sanitas, Flagstaff, Green, Bear and South Boulder Peaks. This should be about a 5-hour run but might be a little shorter depending upon how things go. We'll head out at 5:00 am, starting up Sanitas from 4th Street. Feel free to join in the fun and/or games if you are interested.

See you out there.
