We are back at it folks, one of my favorite times of the year...outdoor track season! This time of the year feels a little bit like our country’s weather has a split personality. Seeing photos of a major snow storm hitting Boulder this week as Little Wing trains at altitude and yet in our neck of the woods the tulips are blooming and an occasional sixty degree day with sun shining sneaks in here and there teasing us: that we can sport our tank tops and Mac Rogas. When what we are yearning for is being trackside in the sunshine cheering on our Olympic hopefuls!
As I sit reclined on the beached reservoir dock with my body positioned toward the sun, hat brim tipped down to shade my already sun-damaged nose, I imagine the labored breathing of the women of Little Wing currently doing intervals on the reservoir’s dirt roads.
