Pain at Pike’s Peek


Today I ran Pike’s Peek….1K. I ran it with my boys and two of my nieces. My left quad, the one all scratched up in picture in the previous post, now has a lovely purple bruise and really hurts when I run. I found that out while trying to keep up with four kids ages 6 – 11.

I found this rather elegant picture of me hopping across the same river I fell in on Friday. Much better to fall in when I did, because the temps when that picture was taken were in the teens and falling in that day would NOT have been desirable…

Good thing I didnt fall in back then...

Anyway, hoping the leg heals quickly because tempo runs and track workouts are out of the question right now. I did manage a hike up Sugarloaf mountain without any pain, so perhaps I’ll just have to explore some alternative physical activities! Rock climbing is on the list for Spring Break…
