Ready for the Bolder Boulder

My current project is in Florida. The client is great; the work is really interesting; and the location is unbeatable. The commute, though, is where I pay the price for all that. Palm Beach is a fairly seasonal airport that does a lot of traffic in the winter, and when I was here in February, the flight times weren’t too bad. But now that seasonal service has ended, my best bet to get here is to take an 8am two-leg flight that {Read More}

Travel Thursday: American Airlines Changes Upgrade Policy

It’s Thursday, and I’m thrilled to be on my way back to Denver tonight. Well… I guess to be more accurate, I would say that I’m thrilled to be going home. But I’m not-so-thrilled to go from the sunny beaches of Florida to the apparent winter wonderland that is Colorado right now. The power went out in my neighborhood this afternoon, it’s snowing now and supposed to continue through tomorrow, and I’m pretty worried about both the garden of annuals {Read More}

Upcoming Race: Broncos 7K Series at Anheuser-Busch Brewery

Ever since I wrote that post last Monday about needing to get back to running… I’ve really lived up to my goal! Tuesday morning, I went out for a short run around my very hilly neighborhood, but ended up running 5.2 miles in 43 minutes. That’s much faster than I’ve ever run those hills before, and an 8:20 average pace! On Wednesday, I didn’t go for a proper run, but did two quick miles on my new* treadmill interspersed with some weight {Read More}

A Weekend of Front Range Photography

I was lucky enough to get into the mountains twice this weekend – and it was glorious! My friend Tim is an incredible amateur photographer, and I’ve long admired the beautiful shots he’s gotten all over the world. Since moving to Denver from Dallas, he’s been going out many weekend days to capture various Colorado landscapes, and I’ve been incredibly envious. This weekend, I got to venture out with him to Rocky Mountain National Park for a sunrise photo session {Read More}

Travel Thursday: My Thoughts on the Extended Laptop Ban

I’ve been thinking for a while about writing more about the airline industry. While I do feature lots of travel industry news in my Sunday Links I Love series, I never thought most of you would be interested in that kind of content. But customer experience for travel and transportation is my field of specialization at work, and news in that space has been quite a mainstream topic these days! Yesterday, I posted on Instagram (follow me here) about the forthcoming announcement of the {Read More}

Learning How to Create a Outdoor Living Space for Colorado Summers

When I first moved into my house, I made a huge list of all the improvements I want to make, and kicked off with a massively expensive project to have the walk-out basement refinished. I’m glad I created a fabulous space there, but with my bank account dwindling, I recognized that I probably needed to space out the never-ending list of other upgrades I wanted to make. I decided that I would tackle one major project / area per year… and {Read More}

Pondering the Bolder Boulder

I feel like I’ve really been slacking on workouts lately. First there was the week of vacation, where I didn’t have access to any kind of gym. That’s obviously no excuse and I could have done some bodyweight workouts on my own… but I didn’t. I thought I’d get back on track the next week, but that was when I got really sick, and even navigating from one room to the next was problematic. No way could I exercise! Last {Read More}
