I've had Achilles injuries in the past and don't plan on going down that road again.
I've been back running without any issues and have been biking quite a bit as well. It's good to shift gears and focus on intensity for the next couple months. I've signed up for a couple half marathons and 10ks. Hoping to keep up with the structured work while gearing up for the long stuff next year...to be determined, but I really did love the vibe up in Steamboat..might have to get another under my belt in Bryce Canyon before then.
