700 Miles

I reached 700 miles for the year today with an uneventful run. It was 85 degrees and dry, conditions I like to run in. I did come across a five foot long snake that I have yet to investigate what species it was. Tomorrow should be a rest day or a Vibram FiveFingers day because Alex and I are planning to run the Joe Colton Adventure Run. I'll do the 15 mile run and Alex says he's up for the 10 mile version.


  1. 5' long - whoa! I've almost stepped on two snakes already this year, but they've just been 2'-ish garter snakes. Very pretty shots.

  2. Congratulations on reaching 700. I am very impressed!

  3. I tried to match it for Colorado snakes on Google. It didn't look like any; it did have a diamond pattern but no rattle. The eyes were glossed over which evidently means it is going to molt soon.
