I recently took a new job (same company, same department, just different responsibilities) which puts me in Boulder a few times a week. The commute can range from 35 minutes to over an hour depending on which route I choose, traffic and accidents along the route and time of day. I’m always trying to make the most of my time. And sitting on the parking lot called US36 is not, in my opinion, a good use of my time. Lately, I’ve been packing my work clothes and leaving the house around 5 am to avoid the rush hour traffic and get in a run before the day begins.
This was one of those up-early-to-run-at-work mornings. I hardly run with my phone, but for some reason my Garmin wouldn’t power on past the welcome screen. Because I like to know how far and long I do run, I grabbed my phone and turned on a gps tracker app to measure my run. And I’m glad I had my phone with me. When I started it was dark, but the sun quickly came up and as I was running around the lake, I saw this:
