This is a crappy cell phone photo from my run this morning. I wish it wasn't such a pain to bring my camera - but it is. This was a beautiful sight, this photo barely begins to do it justice. To see the last of the golden aspen leaves quaking in the breeze on a crystal clear November morning - this is part of why I love to run!

So I got out and ran this morning for the first time in 15 days! I hope to be able to get back to some miles. But I could still feel the congestion in my lungs as I ran this morning. I was so happy to be back out in the sunshine doing what I love to do though.

Tonight I am having a bunch of people over. It should be great fun. I spent last night doing the final cleaning of the house, and now I need to roll up my sleeves and get to cooking and baking. I love this too!

What a great day I am having, and I hope you all are too!

If the picture doesn't capture it all, I can only imagine how great it must have looked this is beautiful!

Glad you got out...running will help clear out those lungs.

Enjoy your entertaining!!

I thought I lived in a fairly pretty area but it is nothing compared to the pictures you post - it looks absolutely beautiful. What a great joy it must be to run in such stunning countryside, I'm very envious.

Glad to hear you finally are getting out again. That is a beautiful photo....makes me miss Colo too and Wy for that matter.

Hated to hear that you had to exchange your Garmin but it's great that REI would do the exchange for you.

I will be in downtown Denver Tuesday and Wednesday. I'm staying at the Hampton Inn. Email me at and I'll send you my cell phone number if you want to get together for coffee or a run.
