Therefore running this race proved tougher than I expected. I ended up finishing in 1:49. I'm OK with it. However, next time around I'll be aiming to get back under 1:40.
After the race I headed out to Golden with my friend Doug to check out a classic mountain town. We walked and sat around drinking some beers before taking the drive back to Denver.
Then it was out to downtown where we hung out mostly in the Highlands and LoDo areas. A great night and it actually felt like 12 years ago when Doug and I were still running around NYC. So much fun and a great way to cap the trip.
Up next: South Dakota, Mount Rushmore
