Love of the Outdoors

Andy and I had a great time in Colorado. I didn't get a whole lot of running in though. Actually I didn't get a single run in. Oh was good time spent with the relatives. I guess Trailridge was closed so we didn't really get to show Andy the mountain like I wanted to. We went to Estes Park and Andy was bummed that we suckered him into shopping. We also visited the Red Rocks Ampitheatre and Black Hawk Casino. I'll add some pictures below.
When we got back to Minnesota on Sunday, the weather was in the 60s. Kind of a jump from the -6 that it was when we left. Anyways, yesterday I took advantage of the nice weather and got my first outdoor run in of the season. I knew the pavement was going to be an adjustment on my knees so I took it kind of easy. I think I got 3-4 miles in. I didn't wear my I-Pod so I'm not entirely sure. But I think I remember that point in my run being about 3 or 4 miles last year. My knees are a little sore today but I figure that they will get better as I add more outdoor runs on. Actually, hopefully we start to smell the grass turning green so that I can really enjoy my runs outside!!
Here are the pictures from Colorado:

This girl was running up and down the stairs in the Ampitheatre. Quite cool.
