Weekend Recap: Pianos and Politics

Last weekend was unfortunately not much of a weekend. I worked in my downtown office till 5pm Friday, then had to leave town Saturday night to be at work in Florida at 7am Saturday morning. But I made the most of my limited time at home! Thursday night, after I got home from Florida, one of my neighborhood friends took me out for drinks for my birthday. Her husband dropped us off at the Village Tavern before putting the kids {Read More}

My Next Big Challenge

Today is my 33rd birthday, and I’m thrilled to announce my next big challenge. In elementary school, they would ask one question each year of every student for the yearbook. In kindergarten, I said that when I grew up, I wanted to be the first female president of the United States… and also a ballerina. My dreams and goals have changed a lot over the last few decades – like when I went from being a nerdy non-athletic bookworm to breaking {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Trail Run Improvements and Family Birthday

I’ll just go ahead and start my weekend recap on Thursday, since I had the rest of the week off after July 4th. I started my day with a trail run up Rattlesnake Gulch – my favorite trail to run as of late. It’s 3.2 miles up to the Continental Divide Overlook, along with 1282 feet of gain, but I’ve been trying to run more of it and walk less. Even though I had just gone hard in the Superior {Read More}

Race Report: Superior Mile

Wednesday was one of my favorite days of the year in my town. I wouldn’t say that I’ve always loved the Fourth of July, but since moving to Superior, Colorado, I am so in love with our town, our country, and how grateful I am to live in such an amazing place! Superior’s Fourth of July starts to ramp up a few days beforehand, when the town sticks a mini American flag into the corner of every single person’s lawn {Read More}

What I Read in June 2018

I read eight books in May, which is on track with how much I need to be reading. Unfortunately, that’s still 9 books behind my annual 100-books-a-year goal… I’m at 41 right now, and the end of June marks the halfway point! Time for me to step it up in Q3 and Q4. 5 stars: Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less, by Greg McKeown: This was a pick for my office book club, and I was a little skeptical at {Read More}

Weekend Recap: SPG Life

My “weekend” started a little bit early this week, as I took Friday off work to go to the beach. I decided last month that it was silly that I’ve been working in Florida for 1.5 years and have barely seen the ocean, so I am now trying to take one Friday off a month to stay in Florida and enjoy the beach! Last time I stayed at the Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach; this time, I stayed two doors down {Read More}
