I am so close to signing up for my next half-marathon. The first one was so very exhilarating. I don’t think I performed as well as I could have, but it was high in altitude and in elevation. The one that I am contemplating runs from Georgetown, Colorado to Idaho Springs. It is a drop in elevation of 1,000 feet. Lately, that has become nothing for me. I’m still not as fast as I’d like to be, but I’m only 54 years young!
It will also be by first race that will end in a stadium!

I have been training for it. I have the ability to get a shuttle for Colorado trail rides almost every weekend. I go with a bunch of Jeeps on a trail ride. I get to drive half and run the other half. It gives me a cool (not city hot) running environment in the beautiful Colorado backcountry.
What do you think? Should I do it?
