AM: 4.25 easy miles on the POS hotel treadmill - early while everyone else was still sleeping. Now down to the spiffy Hampton Inn breakfast!

PM: 13.75 on the Mineral Belt Trail in Leadville, Co.

This definitely ranks as one of my five most unique and enjoyable runs ever. The Mineral Belt Trail is a twelve mile trail that circumnavigates the town of Leadville and all the closed down silver mines.

The awesome awesomeness of this place can not be over stated. More tomorrow after I do some running on the Leadville 100 course.

Very cool run. How'd the lungs feel at 10,000 feet?
