How to go on with the “Sword of Damocles” hanging over your head. With every day a struggle it is hard to think, hard to be creative, and difficult to find the time to do anything. But as I was thinking about daylight savings time going into effect next weekend an idea popped into my head. I remembered my training for the Leadville 100 mile run days and daylight savings time was always a welcome event. It meant running in the light after work before the cold of sundown could set in. From there my mind turned to springtime running and the fun of running in the spring races. My very first race was a spring run in Wash Park, I think it was called the Make a Wish 10K. Unfortunately I wasn’t too savvy about racing back then and pushed it too hard injuring a few tendons and putting myself out of commission for a couple of weeks. But I recovered and now have memories of running along the Highline Canal that spring that I will never forget.
At any rate I did manage to put together an article for the Examiner on the springtime running schedule. It is going to be a great spring for runners looking for races to compete in and I hope to be able to run in a couple of them and maybe get a few pictures and do some writing for the Examiner about the action. I am planning to put together an article on ultra marathoning and the spring schedule for that as well, so be sure to subscribe to my Examiner news feed and you will get an email notification each time I publish!
