High Quality Thanksgiving

Took a drive this morning to Boulder, Colorado to meet up with Tim to share a Thanksgiving trail run and dinner. It was gray and cool but we were upbeat about getting in a run in a new area and also spending some time with a fellow trail runner!
We're climbing what?!?! We had a very gracious and patient trail guide today as we headed out (and UP) on the Mesa and Bear Canyon trails. Thanks Tim!
Nearing the top of one of the steep climbs.
This was a familiar view of Tim today - he's a speed goat!!! Yes, really! Not only is he super speedy, he's a member of the Wasatch Speed Goat Mountain Racing Team.
Candid trail moment!
We were climbing above the famed, and very beautiful, Flatirons on the west side of Boulder.
COLD group photo at the turn around point at the top of Bear Canyon - we did not stand around long here!
Tim had a chance to take a breather coming down out of the canyon...
... finally we caught up to him. We really had a great time today, getting in almost 10 miles on some awesome and rugged trails with nearly 3000' of elevation gain. We have much to be thankful for today - so many blessings - our health, our families, old friends, and some new friends!!! Happy Trails!

We have not ever run it - however, we have wondered what it would be like to run with 50,000 people!! We might consider it if you would like some company! :-)
