Weekend Recap: End of Rainy Spring

This weekend was pretty low-key, in large part to some bad weather most of the weekend! I’m about ready for summer, so it was kind of a bummer to have icky weather so often. First, on Friday, I hosted my annual Cinco de Mayo party (yes, a week late, due to lots of other fiestas last weekend). Unfortunately, the scheduling turned out to really not be in my favor. I originally planned to host the belated celebration on Saturday, but after {Read More}

What I Read in April 2018

I read seven books in April, which is exactly what I need to be reading to make my goal of 100 books a year. Unfortunately, I’m behind from the entire first quarter, so I will need to read more than that going forward if I want to catch up! May has been a slow month for reading but I’m now in the middle of a series that is pulling me in quite a bit, so hopefully that will help. More {Read More}

Injury Update: Stitches No More!

If you don’t follow me on Instagram, you probably didn’t even know that I’ve been injured the last few weeks! Unfortunately, it’s a pretty embarrassing story. Two weeks ago, I went to an Orangetheory class that happened to be a “run row”. You run a certain distance, then hop off the treadmill and go down to the rowers and row a certain distance, and then go back and forth between the two. The goal is to get as many rounds {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Holy Guacamole

This weekend was Cinco de Mayo, which is always one of my favorite holidays to celebrate. Margaritas and tacos, what more can you ask for?! But my annual Cinco de Mayo party this year is becoming an “Once de Mayo” party next Friday; this weekend, I had a “guac off” and a fiesta-themed wedding to attend. I was working from home on Friday morning, and was able to take advantage of a listen-only all-hands call to chop up nine avocados {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Summer is (Almost) Here!

This weekend started earlier than most! I’ve been desperately needing a vacation for a while, but last month, realized that taking a day off every month was probably going to be the best I could do for a while. I was booked for training all day Thursday in Fort Lauderdale, and the session wrapped up too late for me to catch a flight home that night, so I decided to stick around, take a half day on Friday, and spend {Read More}

Race Report: Broncos 7K Fort Collins

As I wrote in my weekend recap last week, I woke up on Saturday morning to a ton of snow – and immediately knew my race wasn’t going to be nearly as fast as I had hoped. I went back and forth a bit on what to wear (should I layer a tank top under my turtleneck?), but eventually realize that with temps in the 30s, it wasn’t going to be particularly cold… just unfortunately wet and snowy. I had some {Read More}
