Fun little custom version of the Boulder traverse today. Started from my place and hit the top of Bear Mtn in 60:29, then climbed down the backside of Bear and headed over and up S. Boulder Peak, then back over and up Bear (by default, really, because you have to run by Bear and the top is so close that it's a shame to pass up tapping the top), then over to and up Green Mtn, then back over and up Bear for a third time. I made it back to my place in 3 hrs 53 mins, so I grabbed the dog and jogged for 7 mins to round it up to an even 4 hrs (a la George Zack).
Felt a little lethargic at times, bonked hard on the way up Green, had a bit of heartburn for some reason (probably from choking down the clif bloks while bouncing on the descent. Otherwise, it was a good run and it feels good to be running fairly well in nice weather.
