Welcome to Boulder

D,C,LJ,P in their new apartment

C and D - 10 miles (don't ask how long it took!)

We arrived after midnight last night in Denver grabbed our rental and headed on out to Boulder. We're crashing with a couple who just moved out here from Boston about a month ago. They moved into their apartment 6 days ago - more than enough time to get ready for guests, right?

We pretty much went right to bed as soon as we got there. I recommend getting in to new cities ridiculously late at night. Waking up in the morning to an entirely new view is an experience everyone should have. The Mountains of Boulder make for a great back drop for this experience.
After gearing up, all four of us went out for runs. LJ and P are a bit out of our league - so they went off on their own. C and D went our own ways on a very leisurely 10 mile(ish) run around boulder, around Wonderland Lake, up through Foothills Community Park, then back into boulder. We stopped at least once a mile (or more) to take far too many photos of the run.

If you ever need a creative way to do Fartleks, find beautiful scenery, a running partner and a camera. Stopping for a moment to pose, the sprinting to catch up to the photographer makes for a great workout.
