The month of the sloth continues. I'm getting out to get outside, but not much else. A few miles via foot and bike as the end-of-the-year goal numbers are due soon.
But, as usual, the annual "the incline club will start this week" e-mail has reminded me that I cannot be a drunk, fat slob all year long. So I'll probably start getting back on a regular workout schedule from now until the winter solstice, and then I'll increase the mileage as daylight slowly sticks around longer.
Colorado Springs went to some bizarre new level on our COVID color dial on Friday. I spent Thanksgiving night at the Royal Tavern, and they are now closed until our Gov decides to turn the dial to some other color. Benny's is closed as well. Breweries are currently able to serve you if you drink outside, somewhat challenging in Colorado this time of year, or get your beer to go. Made a quick ride over to Cerberus on Sunday to pick up some crowlers, and they have a big tent set up. Which is apparently different than being inside as tent was pretty crowded.
On Saturday afternoon we grabbed Moose and took the dogs down to the Shelf Road camping area in Canon City. Just a quick overnight to get out. Good hike on Sunday morning before returning back.
I am in for the '21 Chicago Marathon if it happens. So right now the race schedule is:
March - Salida
June - Garden Ten Miler
July - Barr Trail Mountain Race
Aug - Pikes
Sept - The Rut
Will probably keep it at that as there are some local bike/hike/run routes I want to do in '21, as well as a few more 14ers. The big van trip will be based around The Rut.
