    Anyone interested in an easy trail run, the local club I'm in is doing a trail they are calling the Spruce Mountain Loop that includes a section of Storm Mountain that's only open in September and October.

    Can't get up to Denver until the following weekend. Plus I'm sure my parents got plans for us once we get there.

    As much as I'd like too, this one isn't gonna happen for me...

    To many things to get done around the house and not enough time to do them...

    I didn't end up going on this run. After going to my son's football game Saturday and experiencing the cold and rain, I decided I didn't like the idea of wheeling in even colder and rainier weather. Not a huge fan of mud anyway.

    I'm thinking about making a run in October, 14th or 21st. Maybe try Pole Hill again.

    @mrk5 I might be down to go again sometime in October!

    I've spent most of this month moving. after I get settled into the new place and get a steering box brace installed, I want to go as much as I can.

    Unfortunately, no. Both boys have games. The 28th is the first Saturday with no game.

    On another note, Nate told me they're going to run Indy in November.

    I'm wondering if the way October went we might end up with a more mild, relatively warm November so we can get a trip in on the 4th of next month.

    So that means you can run Holy Cross.
