5/15/11 Sun: A little rain/snow kept the group fairly small today at 29. But for those who made it up as high as Barr Camp we did manage to pop out above the clouds for a few minutes. A very few minutes.
5/12/11 Thur: 30 came out on a perfect day for a tempo run up the Barr Trail. The trail had some moisture which provided some traction. 30 minutes later we headed back down and did 5 PI hill repeats.

4/17/11 Sun: One of the larger groups in a while - 56 - came out on another perfect weather running day. Many are heading over to the GOG. Others are taking on the Barr Trail. All are getting fit.

4/10/11 Sun: 45 came out for a run in the mountains. Although it started a tad nippy it warmed up nicely. Still lots of wind however.
4/7/11 Thur: And just like that the hard workouts have begun. A perfect day for hurting brought out 31 runners for 30 minutes of 1 minute hard, 1 minute easy. We followed that up with 4 hill repeats.
4/3/11 Sun: A very nice day with temps in the 60 brought out an even 50 runners today which was our largest group in a while! But it looks like mother nature has something in mind for later in the afternoon.
3/27/11 Sun: Some Fog and drizzle kept a few home today with only 31 showing for the run.
3/20/11 Sun: 39 came out for the run and layers of cloathes were clothes peeled away. No snow/ice all the way to No Name.
3/13/11 Sun: 35 showed for the IC run today. And there was hints that Spring is on its way. This has been one warm winter!
3/6/11 Sun: At least 47 came out for today's run up the Barr Trail. Not too hard to get to No Name without touching snow or ice. But it is early to count on that staying the same.
2/27/11 Sun: Many of the 42 who showed today were wearing shorts. Oddly, we could use a little winter around here because it is getting so dry. But it was a great day for running!
2/20/11 Sun: 49 came out for a run up to Barr Camp. Once again for February the weather was not too bad.
2/13/11 Sun: 44 showed for a February day that was so nice we followed the run up with a FeedBag. Nothing like a sugary doughnut after a run!
2/6/11 Sun: Super Bowl Sunday brought out a super small group of only 37 ICers. That is the smallest in recent memory. But those that showed came to run and run we did.
1/30/11 Sun: 49 showed for a Double or some portion thereof. The air was crisp but the sun was nice to us and it was a great day for running.
1/23/11 Sun: 67 ICers came out for a cold trip up to Barr Camp and back. Because of ice issues on lower Barr Trail some opted for Rampart or the Garden.
1/15-16/11 Sat/Sun: This week ICers had a rare Saturday option for the club "*" - all or part of the Fat Ass 50K. The middle of the course was very similar to our standard Double route. However, it was nice to learn some new trails getting up to Rampart Range Road. The weather was perfect. For those that did not do that Sunday was our regular Double. Between the two options 65 ICers got signed in.
1/9/11 Sun: 70 showed for our first trip up to Barr Camp of the new season. There was a lot more dirt than was expected and the trail was well packed. Did I mention it was cold?
1/2/11 Sun: Perhaps because at 8am it was a bitter 12 degrees only 55 showed for the first club run of the new year. And what a run it was - The Double! After a little pep talk we headed off on a sufferfest. The snow had a certain sand-like quality which while kind to the joints was hell on ligaments, tendons and muscles because our feet slipped in every which direction. Many a slow PR was set today but that is just the way it goes after a serious snow storm. But at least it warmed up and by the time we were done the temperature was all the way up to 44.
12/26/10 Sun: Another day that started out cold. Another day that ended up warm. This has been one strange winter so far. 61 ICers came out for a great run around Waldo.
12/19/10 Sun: 81 ICers came out for our 2nd run up Longs Ranch Road. It started out rather cold at 21 but by the end of the run it was pretty nice. A little snow on the ground made Baby Bear Hill a little interesting but beyond that it was not too bad.
12/12/10 Sun: A little cold did not stop 70 from showing up for another trip around Waldo. And the further we went the warmer it got. Indeed, for December this was another awesome day to run.
12/5/10 Sun: 81 ICers showed for the first run up Longs Ranch Road of the new season. Part way up Longs we ran into some snow but nothing that got in the way or slowed us down. It was in the twenties but the hills quickly warmed us up.
11/28/10 Sun: 115 got signed and another 3 came late for a total of 118 for the first run of the 2011 season. A great turnout on a great day! After a group photo we headed off to go find Waldo. Someone has been thinning the trees on the UPT but that means the road is in pretty good shape and lower Longs Ranch Road is in as good as shape as I have ever seen it. Someone was also nice enough to put a new blue sign on the far switchback in Waldo which should keep people from missing that turn. Beyond that things are pretty much as we left them except I for one forgot what an ice box Ruxton at 8 in the morning. After the run we had a feedbag where everyone brought enough food for themselves and 2 others. YUM! Finally, in the trivia department, yesterday the Springs set a record for going the longest into the year without snow. As luck would have it the streak was not broken until about 10 hours AFTER our run :-)
11/24/10 Wed: Another e-mail was sent out announcing the first club run of the 2011 season on November 28th.
11/17/10 Wed: An e-mail was sent out today announcing the start of the 2011 season our 15th.
