Riding outdoors is getting harder and harder... I was racing home to beat the snow and rain that was rolling in and I got a flat. My hands were freezing and I didn't have the tire seated properly. I ended up wasting my CO2 and had to hitch hike home. This sucks! I've flatted on my last 4 rides.
UGH!

OMG That was the longest/hardest run of my life.

Total Ascent: 5,923 Feet! This has to be a personal record!

I started at my house and ran up the service road to the Two Elk Trail Head... and I just started to run. It was hot and sunny and last nights rain turned the trail into mud. I was having fun, so I kept going. I had to cross a beaver dam along the way - that was cool, but I did not want to fall into the icy water - and I came to a fork... there was a sign that said something about a 30 minute hike to chair 5. I went the other way... A few miles later I came upon the China Express chair lift which get's you out of Blue Sky Basin. I continued on Two Elk Trail figuring I would eventually get to Two Elk Lodge. Already I was getting low on my one bottle of Gatorade and I was hoping that maybe some people would be working up at Two Elk and I could get some water and a snack... Two Elk is the Lodge that was burnt to the ground by a few activists a couple of years ago. Anyway, I kept going up, and up at 10 miles I stopped. I thought about turning around and just getting the 20 in but I felt that I was getting close to the lodge. I decided to keep going. I was now running in snow, mud, slush and more snow... the going was getting slower. I ran past highest ski lift on Vail, The Mongolia surface lift and got on the service road from there. It sucked. Mud and icy slush, my feet were numb and I had rocks in my shoes. Finally I could see the lodge. All locked up and at 14 miles in I was all out of Gatorade and I ate my Gu at mile 10. I traversed Vail Mtn until I got to the top of Game Creek. I have run this trail before and I new how far it was for me to get home. For the next 4 miles it was really hard. I was post holing and trying to maintain a running motion. Eventually I got to the Sunny Side of the mountain and I was able to begin the painful and steep descent. Zero falls!

I didn't plan on running this far, but it was an adventure.
