I made a quick trip to Lousiville, Colorado, that is. That's a bedroom community for Boulder. I have a court case that is winding down in Denver, and I was there on Thursday and Friday for it. I stayed in Louisville, where I used to live when I was a State Patrolman. (Left: Harper's Lake in Louisville is especially pretty early in the morning.)
The last time I was in Colorado I got quoted by the Boulder paper. My viewpoint is that it's never a good thing to see your name in the paper. I was on damage control when I got quoted. (Right: There's a nice view of the Boulder Flatirons from atop Davidson Mesa. Photo credit P.)
My trip to Colorado gave me a chance to run with my friend P again on Davidson Mesa outside of Boulder. We had a nice hour-long run on Friday morning of six miles in the mile-high air. It's beautiful scenery out there.
(Left: There were still a few Cherry Blossoms left on Saturday at the FDR Memorial.) And then it was back to the real world. I flew into Dulles on a Friday evening flight and got home at 2 am on Saturday morning, in plenty of time to make my 9 am Saturday run of six miles with the 10K Training Group. (Right: Roosevelt Island in the Potomac is especially pretty in the morning.)
