Fiery Evening Run

By Ann Driggers

 

I rarely run in the evening, prefering to get my workout done before heading to work early in the morning. Today however, seeing the sky was setting up with some good cloud action, I pulled on my running shoes and headed out from the house just before sunset. And boy was I glad I did.

We've just moved (again) and are now high above the Roaring Fork Valley near Carbondale. It is a spectacular setting with 360 degree views encompassing the Flattops, the Continental Divide, some of Colorado's famous Fourteeners such as Capitol and of course the ever present Mount Sopris.There are some great trails in the neighborhood which loop around wide open expanses of rolling sage brush and through mature pinon and juniper forest. I set off with Tikka to enjoy what turned out to be one of the most dramatic sunsets I've seen in a long time.

I was also excited to see, with the fresh snow we received over the weekend, someone had started to groom the trails for cross country skiing. I ran next to the track so as not to damage it but it needs a little more snow before being truly skiable. With sunsets like these I'll be making an evening workout, ski or run, more of a regular occurence.

I wish I was able to run like this too but I am still on meds and I can’t run for now. I’m confident that I will be able to run soon though. Do you have any tip for surgery recovery guy?

I always liked reading about people who enjoy sports so much! Just by taking a run every night your body becomes much more healthy and you feel much better! Unfortunately, sports is not as well promoted as it should.. Even on the internet we should find more encouragement for it. sports education is just as important as any other kind and, unfortunately, very few academic web-sites promote it. Hodges.edu/ is one of those which do, but one of the very few!
