      TUESDAY SPEED
      No speed workout this week due to the holiday. We'll be back after the holiday.

      These workouts are for runners of all abilities. (The only exception
      is for beginning runners or those coming back after a long lay-off.
      You should build a good base, with lower effort, and gradually longer
      runs, before you start doing speed work.) The group stays in a compact
      area (e.g., short loop or out-and-back), so no one will get left
      behind. We run for time, starting and finishing together. The route is
      designed typically with the hard efforts on climbs and/or
      non-technical terrain; descents and rocky terrain will be easy
      efforts. The purpose is to combine track-like speed workouts with
      power training for hills.

      The speed workouts will take place every week, as long as there is
      interest. Sometimes there will be a separate e-mail with the workout
      info, Mon evening, or Tue during the day.

      ++++++++++
      THURSDAY RUN
      Run location: Mt. Galbraith. The main group will meet at 6:15pm; the
      early group at 5:30pm.

      DTR has only run this park once before, and that was several years
      ago. There's no map on the DTR site. Use the directions, route
      description, and link below for a map.
      http://jeffco.us/openspace/openspace_T56_R34.htm

      Directions: From Highway 93, in Golden, take Golden Gate Canyon Road
      west approximately 1.5 miles to the parking area and trailhead. Golden
      Gate Canyon Road is ~1 ¾ mi N of the junction of highways 6, 58 & 93,
      and just S of where we turn for North Table Mtn.

      Run notes: This is a hiker only park. The trails are fairly narrow and
      somewhat sloped (for drainage). Since we don't have much experience
      here, the routes are just suggestions. Please read the map, and use
      your watch to adjust your running route to finish with the group.
      Start up the 1.3mi Cedar Gulch Trail.

      Slower runners: do one circuit of the 1.6mi Galbraith loop, then
      return down Cedar Gulch.

      Intermediate runners: do two circuits, then return down Cedar Gulch.

      Faster runners: Do one circuit. Go out and back on the Nightbird Gulch
      trail. Then return down Cedar Gulch.

      Tentative schedule:
      7/12: Deer Creek
      7/19: Elk Meadow, followed by party at Kendra's
      7/26: Mt. Falcon, time trial

      If you are new to DTR and unfamiliar with the trails, and for more
      information about DTR, including FAQs, please go to the link below.
      For directions, route descriptions and explanation of ratings, please

      OTHER DTR AFFILIATED RUNS

      SATURDAY EVERGREEN
      The Evergreen Runners Circle (ERC) holds FREE runs every Saturday,
      8:30am, on trails, in the Evergreen area. Several DTR regulars join
      these runs. The ERC runs are typically about 60 minutes long. They
      usually go out for coffee/breakfast afterwards. Please forward your
      questions to Dave via the ERC link below. For more info about the ERC
      schedules, go to:
      http://www.geocities.com/Colosseum/Lodge/7018/index.html
      Schedule:
      7/7: Flying J Ranch


      SUNDAY GOLDEN
      Golden weekend runs are Sundays at 7:30 a.m. Meet outside Brooks
      Field, CSM Stadium, on 12th Street in Golden, and run on one of six or
      more different routes in the Golden area. All of the courses allow for
      varying lengths (e.g. 6-14+ miles) and paces, depending on the
      interests of the runners on that day. For further information contact
      Ron Benioff at rnbenioff@... 303-279-6152.
