My family and I took a little weekend getaway to Santa Fe over this past weekend and it went a little something like this:
I had to get my Incline Club run in on Thursday evening, so thus began the weekend. The IC ran an interval run up Barr Trail that consisted of 1:00 running hard followed by 1:00 rest. That lasted 30:00--15:00 running and 15:00 resting. Then, for the butt kicker, Steve Griego and I did six 30 second hill repeats on the Incline from the bail trail. That's just how we roll.
Friday came and it was time to head to Santa Fe for my wife's birthday. Fully packed and taking the back roads, we headed toward San Luis and Taos. I love traveling these back highways as the scenery is spectacular. We stopped in San Luis to hike the Stations of the Cross. I think the kids liked it, Steve Griego runs the Incline
and I know I did.

Saturday we spent in Santa Fe at the historic downtown square. I didn't get any pictures of me that day, but my daughter did and I might share them with you if I can figure out how to get them from her camera to my computer. Here's a picture of an Eagle.
We returned home on Monday, and having not run but 2 miles on a treadmill through the weekend, and eaten a ton of food, I felt the need to get some running done. So I attended the Achilles Pikes Peak run at the Colorado Running Company. There I got paired up with Jessica Beecham, a blind runner, who needed a guide to run a quick 5 miler up the Santa Fe Trail.

From Santa Fe city to Santa Fe trail, it turned out to be a pretty good weekend. And this, my friends, is how I am tapering for the Garden of the Gods 10 miler.
