Didn’t run on Saturday. Picked up a U-Haul trailer so we could drive all over the state and pick up furniture at a variety of places. Ended up with 2 full loads that we had previously purchased. Got it all back and loaded into the basement of the cabin until painting is complete so its out of the way. Getting real used to driving I-70 these days. Ate dinner in Edwards, Colorado at the original/first Larkburger. Its not historic or anything but now “I have been there”.

Slept poorly because Kayla is in our room and for some reason the first night at 10K just leaves me tired when I wake up. Plus, the dog is constantly roaming around like he doesn’t know where to put himself.

Got up and had a brilliant plan to run up Powerline but when I got there it was underwater at the start from the snow melt. I bushwacked a bit then gave up. Plus, there are a ton of No Trespassing signs out that way. These high mountain folks are really good at telling you where you should not be at. Kind of depressing. Headed back to the road and just figured out a loop to Fish then back home. Coming out of Fish I was able to go shirtless and enjoy a wonderful fall day up high. Great view of Mount Sherman in the distance. Good running. Felt “at one”.

Spent the rest of the day sanding on the deck, grouting in the house, installing a new shower faucet, finishing the security system, changing the water filters, and trying to enjoy myself while the TODO list gets longer and longer. Later in the day, we went into Frisco for dinner and more furniture shopping. Ended up buying a bedroom suite and a desk. They are going to deliver it this week. Guess I need to go back to receive it!

I went 10.08 miles with an elevation gain of 481 feet in 01:25:26, which is an average pace of 08:28. View my GPS data on Garmin Connect.
