The week leading up the to race, I was in Colorado for work. Summer Institute training is basically like financial aid school. Golden, CO was absolutely stunning... and I found a nice trail to run on!
Our accommodations however, not so much...
Yup, dorm style. All week. Needless to say, I was going into the Saturday race on little sleep. Angie and I had driven home from Golden on Friday.
But I really can't complain, the race is in my town, so I could sleep in my bed the night before, and I live about a mile from the starting line! I was really excited about all of my friends running this race, either the 5K or the half. I hadn't seen any of them for a whole week, so I was pretty excited!
