Race 1 was an introductory race to get acclimatized to the oxygen levels and the temperature of the fall in Colorado for me. Â The race was 3.2-3.5 miles and the second third of the race involved running up Monument Creek, a shallow waterway filled with sand, rocks, and Iron and Copper from local and upriver mining operations. Â It was quite invigorating and the temperature made the water effect pleasant. Â All sorts of folks participated including Mom! Â All went well, however, the next race should be substantially more competitive for me. Â Looking to cut my time in HALF!
Future Races are every other Sunday onÂ 10/18/09 (Race 2), 11/1/09 (Race 3), & 11/15/09 (Race 4).
