Fall dreams

We've been really spoiled with the weather lately and its that time in the high country where you know you are riding on borrowed time.
Brian and I went yesterday and explored some new terrain (for us) from Spring creek to Cement creek trail via Rosebud trail.
We'd ridden Rosebud trail before during a long day from Crested Butte South and each had our own memories of the climb. This time around I had some VO2 intervals to do on the climb and it was so loose and rocky I think I climbed with the most anger at a trail as I have ever had.
At the top though cement creek trail was perfect and the views of the fall colors where amazing. The ride took us about 2 hours 45... so it was a really nice way to access the CB South area with less driving and from a fresh perspective.
As its Tri season we donned our running shoes and joggled boggled around Spring creek with some strides for good measure.
I am definately feeling the itch of Nationals next weekend as am I thinking ahead to World champs in November. Its been a long season and I can taste Brians bithday ride, hiking and relaxing that comes after all our racing is done.
I feel like I am in the 5 week countdown and I'll appreciate it this year.
Well enough future dreaming. The sun has just come out, I have a run to do, some bikes to clean and a coaching program for a client before 4 this afternoon.
