Hungover Half Marathon and Virtual Resolution Run

Happy New Year everyone!

The title of this post might be a bit of a lie since I was NOT hungover but I liked the alliteration. It was cold today 32 degrees plus a wind chill but it was beautiful up in Boulder today in the Flatirons. Cory and I found a trail and set out to put in 13.1 miles today just because it feels nice to start the year out with a half marathon like we did last year with the Huge Ass Half Marathon.

I signed up for Run to the Finish's Virtual Resolution Run so I printed out my bib and made the resolution to "Follow my Training Plan"

It was a nice trail

there was still a lot of snow and ice in sections and some mud but overall I really liked it.

Sometimes we had to dodge cows

Overall it was a great run, it took a long time given all the ice (not pictured).

Cory and I are now going to eat some good food, cuddle and watch the Bronco game.

I hope your first day of 2012 was healthy and fun!


  1. Where do you find these trails? I could definitely use a few trails like that to get me thru marathon training!

  2. Happy New Year BEth! What a great way to start it!!! Ahh, i miss the Colorado sunshine!

  3. I know this trail, I think! Is it south of Boulder, on the east side of hwy 93?? I love running out there, or taking my bike out--it just is so vicious when it's windy cause there is NOTHING to block it!

    Happy New Year!

  4. What a great way to start the new year!
