View of 'Mt.' Carbon
Nonetheless I had tired legs and felt the climb since I'd gone to Kangoo boot camp class in the morning and the instructor was feeling especially fiesty.

Turn around 180 degrees and you see this.
And another view from Mt. Carbon. If you squint really hard you can see the Red Rocks Amphitheater.
They have an off-road triathlon here in the fall and I've never done it. Last year it was a couple weeks before Xterra Nationals and the year before, its first year, it was scheduled for October and this made me leery due to the possibility of snow or very cold conditions and sure enough it snowed. They held the race a week or two later as a duathlon. I'd love to do the race but again it's a week before Xterra Nat's. this year.
It's a nice park, not somewhere I'd send a tourist but a good place for locals to get out and stretch their legs while waiting for the mountain trails to melt.
In all we rode only 8 1/2 miles or so but I was tired after the morning's workout and an accumulation of hard training over the past couple of weeks. And I have an agility trial this weekend so I didn't want to go too crazy.
I should say I hope I have an agility trial tomorrow. Strummer managed to get into a 1/2 full container of Jonny's salsa. I've given him some hydrogen peroxide but so far no puking. Little stinker is determined to hold onto it. I really don't want to find out what happens when a dog eats 1/2 a container of salsa. Guess I'll try a little more H2O2 and hope for the best. This dog is aging me quickly.
Edited to add:
We finally have pukeage! Phew. Though it's sad that a vomiting dog is the highlight of my Friday night.
