I placed 14,997th in the Bolder Boulder, with a 10:05 pace. I'm pretty happy with that, oddly enough :)
The Bolder Boulder was such a success! Over 50,000 people participating in an event that is at once communal and yet, at the same time is so individual. This was my ninth Bolder Boulder and it is always a phenomenal experience. Two days later and I am still on a high.
So, we've had a significant amount of rain for two days and two nights, now. It's nice, but unusual for us. All the plant life is so invigorated! June is our hottest and driest month, so this is a good way to end May and prepare for the drought conditions coming. Maybe June won't be so bad this year. As I write the rain is coming down, still.
I travel tomorrow to Boulder, Colorado to run in the Bolder Boulder 10K on Monday, Memorial Day. I'm excited.
