My Morning Walking Route: Downtown Denver


Smart people walk. I want to be smart. Therefore, I walk.

I recently decided I was going to start taking up long-distance running again. Like, marathons and stuff 😳.

No, I’m not having a quarter-life crisis (that I know of). In fact, I have been running most of my life.

I took some time off for the last 3 years. For no good reason besides re-prioritization and changing of pace feels good/is important. Fartlek, in Scandinavian running terms (aka “Speed Play”).

In order to condition my legs for long-distance running (Ultras eventually), I want to get my bones, muscles, ligaments, etc used to the repetition I’ll be putting them through.

So, I’m taking one step at a time (pun intended)…

…More on the running stuff – and plans fairly soon (I’m going to spend some time looking at races tonight – I like to signup for something really early, to then have something to aim for).

Here are some photos from my new favorite talking route (which includes a stop at Kaffe Landskap:
