Glenwood Springs, CO
This morning I went out on the tamely named "Boy Scout Trail" and was brought to my knees by its soul crushing ascent. It was supposed to be a 2700 foot ascent in 3 miles but I don't think I made it to the top. The trail started to fork and I think I took the wrong one and eventually turned back and decided I didn't have time to try the other forks. It was a great run, in any event, with spectacular vistas. I thought I was a mountain runner until I went up this one, after which I discovered I was merely a hill runner.
