After depositing the mother ship at the Runner's World recommended Hotel Teatro (www.hotelteatro.com), Dirrty Girl and I set out to tour the mile high city. Up and down the 16th Street Mall, around Coors Field, and a stop @ Illegal Pete's for some killer fish tacos set us up for a walk across the Platte River, over to REI, and a quick refreshing dip in the river. Walking back over the river we stopped at the coolest bookstore ever, The Tattered Cover before getting cleaned up and heading out for one of the best meals ever at Rioja.
Dirrty Girl and I were both amazed at not only the cleanliness of Denver, but also the use of mass transit and bicycles by a large segment of the poplulation. Something that is severely lacking in the "D" as is evident by our high ranking in the country for obesity.
