This morning when I was in the middle of a 15 mile Sunday run, I could not believe my luck. There I was running in one of the most scenic places near and next to Turquoise Lake in Leadville, Colorado.
In a matter of 1 hour and 45 minutes, I got to enjoy the views, celebrate that I could still move after completing my highest milage for a week ever (140 miles), and was very grateful for being part of the toughest XC teams in the nation. The Adams State Men and Women's XC Teams.

Meet the young man and women I get to train with while I prepare for the 2010 Chicago Marathon on October 10th, 2010.

Esta manana cuando estaba en medio de lo que seria un entrenamiento de 15 millas no podia creer mi suerte. Me encontraba en uno de los lugares mas escenicos cerca y al lado del lago Turquoise en Leadville, Colorado. En solo una hora y cuarenta y cinco minutos pude disfrutar de los paisajes, celebrar que aun podia moverme despues de haber completado la semana mas alta de millaje (140 millas) y muy agradecida de poder formar parte de los equipos mas fuertes de campo traviesa de todo el pais- El equipo de mujeres y hombres de campo traviesa de Adams State.
Conoce a los jovenes con los cuales puedo entrenar mientras me preparo para el maraton de Chicago el 10 de Octubre del 2010.
