On the Rocks

I can measure how challenging my week has been by how much I think about running. Sometimes running is just another item on the to-do list. But when things are rough, as they have been lately, I think about running all the time. What better way to work off tensions and work up a sweat than with a 5K at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, one of the most beautiful sites in Colorado?

Run the Rocks, which starts at 9:30 a.m. today (check-in starts at 8), could be your last chance to get out and feel the burn before the cold weather closes in. The challenging run up the venue’s stairs is accompanied by live music, and more entertainment along with snacks will be offered on the plaza afterward. Proceeds benefit the American Lung Association; to get more information and to register, call 303-388-4327 or go to www.runtherocks.org. Red Rocks is at 18300 West Alameda Parkway in Morrison.
