School District (38) Fun Run this Saturday (Starts at LP High School at 9 am). A 5k and 10K, starts at the same time. Not signed up yet, not sure who in the family is doing it or which distance. Possible that I run the 5k w/ one of the kids and as they finish I continue with the 10k. I enjoy running with my kids, I think they still like running with me.
Tuesday late afternoon I ran what I thought was the full course according to the event website. First 5k was right around 3.1 miles, however the next 5k was 3.9 miles - and had a decent 300+ foot climb. So, maybe I didn't get the course right. In any case, it's for a good cause as we have all 3 kids in school and their school's get partial proceeds. So hopefully there will be a good turnout - for this inaugural event.
Yesterday I ran Waldo Canyon - has been several years since I had been in there, in fact I remember having to piggyback the smallest of our kids for a lot of it when we were there years ago. We also never made it all the way round the loop - going only about a quarter mile of it (takes about 1 3/4 miles to get to the loop start).
So, I ran it yesterday not really knowing what I was getting into - the sign at the trailhead says 6.2 miles. It is more like 7. Sensing a theme for the last 2 days: 6.2 mile course actually being 7. No big deal as I took my time, albeit some reason for that was the decent climbing necessary. But finished in 1:18 and change.
Probably should have taken water with me as it was warm and I usually carry water if I am going over an hour. But as mentioned, I didn't push too hard and enjoyed the trail and views. Not too many hikers on the trail, once I got away from Hwy 24 it was quite peaceful.
