Weekend Recap / Race Report: Ragnar Colorado

Weekend of September 13-15 This weekend was a bit of a whirlwind. On Thursday night, I headed straight from the airport to my friend Sarah’s house way down south (do not pass home, do not collect any clean clothes) – we were headed out first thing Friday morning to run a Ragnar Relay from Castle Rock to Fort Collins (about 200 miles)! I knew a few of the girls on my team – my friend Sarah and her friend Aimee {Read More}

Weekend Recap: A Superior Weekend (Race Report: Superior 5K)

Weekend of September 6-8 I had originally planned to be in downtown Denver for some meetings Friday afternoon, after which my friend Sara and I were going to meet for happy hour. However, the meetings got canceled, and we decided to bail on the happy hour as well. While I had been looking forward to it all week, I was kind of relieved for the opportunity to not drink, eat well, and head to bed early. I wanted to be rested {Read More}

Labor Day Week Recap: Back to Reality… Kind Of

Weekend of August 31-September 2 Last year, when I left Experience Camp, I found it a little tough to get back to “real life” – I had so many emotions, and I missed my girls! This year, probably because I was expecting a difficult transition and was prepared for it, I found it easier… though I still can’t wait for next year. I arrived home Saturday night of Labor Day weekend, and after unpacking and sneaking in a quick shower, {Read More}

Vacation Recap: MidwEx Experience Camp

Two weeks ago, I once again had the opportunity to spend a week volunteering with Experience Camps. Experience Camps is a nonprofit organization that organizes free one-week sleepaway camps for grieving children who have lost a parent or sibling. Last year, I volunteered at the Southern California location (CalEx); this year, I had the opportunity to help Experience Camps open a brand new camp in Michigan (MidwEx). I’ve been pretty swamped since getting back to reality, but over the weekend, {Read More}

What I Read in August 2019

I was doing a pretty good job reading a lot in August, but then lagged when I was volunteering at Experience Camp for a week. No electronics allowed (bummer for my Kindle!), plus, I was too tired at the end of each night to do more than fall into bed and fast asleep. But I still managed to read eight books in August, and two books a week is right about where I aim to be. I’m currently at 55 {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Pitkin Lake, Plane Pull, and Two Peak Traverse

Weekend of August 17-18 My Friday kicked off with a reverse commute, as I drove from Vail to Superior. I had gone up to the mountains on Wednesday, so I could hike in a new location Thursday before work and then meet my boss in Vail for dinner while he was passing through. Both were amazing! I hiked up to Pitkin Lake, a 10 mile round trip, and found the trail to be moderately undulating – which meant I got {Read More}
