I'm going to be totally worthless in Fruita in oh, say, 23 days. Thinking about running 50 miles is absurdly ambitious considering I've only run 11 miles since my marathon 2 weeks ago. Gonna try to squeeze in 10 mi tomorrow to see if the foot has healed yet.

Back before the serious snow hit 2 days ago, I went for a nice bike ride up near Mt Crested Butte to see a part of the valley I hadn't seen before.

nice switchback here:

Rode up Prospect Drive which goes under the Prospect chairlift on the backside of the mountain. I was really wishing my wrist weren't broken to glide down like other people were doing that day.

This side of the mountain was cool, different, and showed of a ridge I hadn't seen before. Always space for discovery in this valley, and all valleys really...

I've adjusted my brakes to perfection. The 500 ft descent was really fun. Luckily I stopped to take a picture, or I probably wouldn't have had time to avoid a patch of ice on the road.
