AM - Met up with Paul again and ran the other way on Poudre. Had a nice chat about family and kids and ideas on raising kids in the modern world. 10 in 6:55 avg.
PM - Drove out to Rocky Mountain National Park and parked at the Bear Lake trailhead. I ran a big loop hitting a few of the nearby lakes. Nymph, Dream, and Emerald first, then doubled back to Haiyaha and The Loch before finishing with a loop around Bear. Gorgeous. Goind was slow, and I climbed from 9500 feet up to 10,200. Climbing + altitude + rocky trails = slow running + high heartrate. 9 miles in 10:32 average by my Garmin. I think the 1:35 on my feet was worth about 13 miles on flat lands
