I'm considering a move to Boulder, and I'm thankful to Stan James for pointing me to this Outside magazine article for mental preparation. No matter how hard I'm training, there's always some friend who runs 67 miles through the mountains in a day. Out here that's just a warm-up.
On that topic, me and Stan are planning to stretch our flabby sea-level lungs with a hike near Boulder on Sunday. We'll probably tackle part of the Eldorado Canyon trail that heads up toward Walker Ranch, scene of my near-death biking experience a few months back. Drop me a mail or add a comment if you're interested.
