Are you a member of the Mile High Club? No, not the one that involves airplanes and yoga poses! I’m talking about running at elevations of 5,280 feet and higher.
I’m on my way to Colorado to spend a week with my kids at Keystone. Of course, I’m excited to get in some trail runs, but a little worried about the altitude. I called a few of my friends who live in the Mile High State and got some tips on running at altitude that I figured I would share.
Running at a higher altitude can make you feel like a slug, and an asthmatic slow one at that. However, if you’re careful, and keep some of the following tips in mind, high altitude running can be very enjoyable and great for racing at lower altitudes!
Bottom line: Take it slow and easy and enjoy your runs!
