Race Report: Election Day

I’m titling this a race report, because, my gosh, running for office was one of the toughest races I have ever run, even if wasn’t literal running! Most of my weekend recaps have already recapped what the race itself was like, but I wanted to take some time to blog about Election Day, which was truly special. The night before, my friend Chris was texting me that she couldn’t believe Election Day was already here. She was almost more excited {Read More}

What I Read in October 2018

During the final month of my campaign, I hardly read at all. But in the interest of continuity, I’ll still do a quick review of the four books I read last month. (That puts me 27 books behind my goal to read 100 books this year; I’m currently at 60 total.) 5 stars: Run for Something: A Real-Talk Guide to Fixing the System Yourself, by Amanda Litman : Loved this fast-paced no-nonsense guide; I wish I had found it earlier {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Election Weekend!

Weekend recap from November 3 and 4. This was the final weekend before the election (eee!), and as expected, things were a little hectic trying to make sure I finished strong, as people kept telling me to do. But how do you “finish strong”? With 80% of the ballots already turned in, it didn’t necessarily make sense to host an event or send out more flyers. My goal was just not to cause a scandal in these last few days {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Halloween Festivities, Final Campaign Events, and Mountain Planning

Weekend recap from October 27/28. I wrote about last weekend being a turning point for my campaign, where I finally ditched my imposter syndrome and started feeling like I might actually win this. However, that made me a little worried… was I getting overconfident, and would I hit some major snag that would make me regret feeling so good? This weekend, at least, the answer was no. My weekend kicked off Friday promptly at 5:30pm, with a coffee meeting with {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Turning Point and Feeling Good

Still catching up on weekend recaps… this is October 20/21. After a week of flying almost every day (Florida on Monday, back to Colorado Tuesday night; New York on Thursday, back to Colorado Friday), I was so excited to get home late Friday night and know that Saturday wasn’t going to be too crazy. I had three meetings with residents in the morning, but then my afternoon was gloriously open – something that hasn’t happened almost my entire campaign!  I was {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Hot and Cold

Weekend recap from October 13/14… I’m behind! My weekend kicked off on Friday night with a campaign event I had been looking forward to for a while. The Sports Stable, a big athletic complex in my town, has a cool space within it called Fairways at the Stable – which has a bar plus a number of golf, football throwing, and rifle shooting simulators. The owner of Fairways decided to endorse me and three other candidates, and he offered to {Read More}
