Weekend Recap: F45, Cookblog, and Superior Shindig

Weekend of September 21-22 I kicked off my weekend with Friday night dinner plans at one of my favorite local hot spots: El Five, in Lo-Hi. While the food at El Five isn’t my absolute favorite, the presentation is incredible and the views can’t be beat – the city skyline to the east, and the mountains to the west. I had a wonderful time and totally lost track of my time, finally heading home around 10pm. So much for my {Read More}

Weekend Recap: First Weekend of Summer!

Weekend of May 31 to June 2 My mom flew out on Thursday afternoon, after a fabulous week – I wished she were staying longer! However, I was distracted from missing her by the arrival of Craig, who I picked up from the airport just a few minutes after I dropped my mom off. That wasn’t planned, but it was nice to have it work out that way! After Craig and I got home, we were in for the night {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Memorial Day Weekend with Mom

My mom has been in town for a week and flew back yesterday – bummer! Luckily, we’ve had a nice, relaxing visit, and I think for once I did a good job of not overloading her with activities. (I made it a point to only plan one thing per day, which is what she prefers.) I can’t wait for her to come back! I worked for the day Friday rather than taking off, but wrapped up by 5pm in order {Read More}

Weekend Recap / Race Report: Colorado Women’s Classic

Weekend of May 11-12 Last weekend, my friend Claire had convinced me to sign up for the Colorado Women’s Classic, a ten mile race in Westminster on Sunday morning. I figured that while I wasn’t really in ten mile shape, it would be a good way to force myself to get out for a long run, and perhaps burn off a few of the margaritas I planned to have Saturday night at my belated Cinco de Mayo party. I had {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Spring is Here!

This week, I had to be in New York until Friday. Fortunately, I was able to catch an early flight, and it was on time, so I still made it home at 5pm to start my weekend. And I started my weekend in a great way – my neighborhood friend Kate had invited a bunch of friends over for a last minute happy hour! About a dozen families brought drinks to share and kicked in a few bucks for dinner, {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Hanging at Home

Recap of March 8-10 I think this was the first weekend I’ve had in several months that I didn’t go up to my Vail house for at least a bit… but there was a lot going on in Superior! I started Friday with an event that wasn’t in Superior, but in a neighboring town. The Brighton Image Summit is a two-day conference that brings together students from all over the state to encourage them to use their voice to impact government {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Beaver Creek Talons Challenge

Recap of February 23-24 This was a really exciting weekend for me, as I achieved a huge ski goal for myself! And when that was done, I also got some down time as I gear up to get back on the road for work. Friday was a busy day of work (as usual), but I was able to book some calls for the afternoon during which I could drive out to the mountains. I left around 1:30pm, well before the {Read More}

This morning, I’m off to do the Talons Challenge at Beaver Creek! The Talons Challenge is an annual event where skiers have to take a run down every black diamond and double black diamond in the Talons area of Beaver Creek – 14 runs, but 26,000 vertical feet. This is the first year I’ve ever even attempted a double black diamond, but after all the skiing I’ve done this year, I’m so excited that I’ve gotten good enough to attempt {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Thanksgiving

After getting back to the car post-turkey trot (race report here), it took a while for my hands to warm up. But warm up they did, and by the time everyone else got to the car, I was done feeling sorry for myself for how cold my hands were. And I was psyched to head to my brother’s boss’ house across the street for post-race brunch! My brother’s boss, Julie, lives in a classic and beautiful Victorian house right off {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}
