Training Journal 6/24-6/30

Monday, June 24- Sunday June 30, 2013:  Fun times exploring high altitude Colorado.  First Leadville, then Buena Vista, then off to Silverton/Ouray.  Ran the coolest 30 mile loop EVER just outside of Crested Butte: 4 Pass Loop.  How many cool mountain towns does this state have?  I am also beginning to notice that residents are pretty proud of their state: lots of Colorado State flags and lots of people wearing hats and shirts with the state flag.  Not that I blame them.  Back to the 4 Pass Loop: pure running awesomeness with lots of climbing and good friends, plus some new ones.
