Well despite the calendar, spring has not been knocking on our door with any regularity. Sunday during a small trip up into the high country, nature announced that spring is here. The discovery of these small mountain flowers has always meant that the worst is over and better weather is ahead. Unlike the woolly caterpillar, these flowers seem to pop through the last of the winter snows. After the blizzard like conditions a few days before, I hope they are right.
So put away the tights and gloves and be ready for warmer runs, longer days and the upcoming races season!
Dedicated to Trail Running, Hiking, and Biking in the Colorado Springs and surrounding area. I will also comment at times on running and more specifically ultra-running when I have something I am interested in.
I am a long time runner with a passion for trails. I have been running marathons and ultra marathons for 30+ years. Age has crept up so I have scaled back my races but I still try to hit the trails almost every day. I have started mapping local trails on my website http://farrunner.com so people can see what is available in the Colorado Springs Area.
