7 Trails for Running in Colorado This Spring

Spring is just around the corner, and we cannot wait for warmer weather and more time outside! While the spring months in Colorado are notorious for snow, we are hoping for some warm(ish) weekends where we can hit the trails and get our fill of Rocky Mountain air. Even better, we look forward to taking our workouts outdoors -- because that is what living in Colorado is all about!

In 2018, one of our goals is to try different variations of exercise -- we want to change things up from time to time and keep our workouts fresh. Plus, it's always fun to try something new! So this year, we are giving trail running a go. Here are a few trails we are looking forward to running this spring. Check them out:
