Race Report: Move It for the Music 5K

Race run on July 6th, 2019 Craig had a bachelor party scheduled the weekend of July 4th, and my firm gives us all of July 4th week off – so I figured the second weekend of the break would be a great one for me to make a quick solo getaway. I always find it difficult to plan trips to other places (when I am on vacation, I just want to be home, since I travel so much for work), {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Mount Victoria in Frisco

Weekend of July 13-14 This weekend was the first one I got to spend with Craig in the mountains with his new van. Since this is likely going to be the template for the rest of my summer, I was super excited! So, first – Craig’s van is actually an RV (a Travato 59K), meaning it’s 22 feet long, has a bathroom (with toilet and shower), and a king-sized bed. So going “camping” with the van is hardly roughing it! {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Vail Brew Fest and SpaceX Falcon Heavy Launch

My weekend started off on the disappointing side – with rainy, cold weather that made me cancel plans to go to my work’s annual Promotion Day. Promotion Day is always one of my favorite days of the year – when we announce and celebrate all those who got promoted (we have one time of year for performance reviews / promotions, though we of course provide real-time feedback all year long). However, our Denver celebration was scheduled to be outside on {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Weekend Warrior Workouts

My weekend kicked off combining work and play on Friday afternoon: one of my coachees came over with his wife and baby to catch up over drinks on the deck! Unfortunately, the weather turned stormy right before they came over, so we had to relocate from the deck to the living room. But even though we couldn’t enjoy the summer weather, we had a great conversation about both work challenges / opportunities and personal life. After they left, I puttered {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Ragnar Snowmass and High Country Hiking

Weekend of June 7-9 This weekend, I was headed out for the mountains for the first time in months. I skied my last day of the season on April 7, and hadn’t been back to Eagle County since! I was really excited to get out to my mountain house and check on a few things there, plus see what it was like there in the summer. But first… I headed out to Aspen for Ragnar Snowmass. My friend Sarah had {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: Munich!

Weekend of May 18-19 Flight prices to get from Florida to Colorado were crazy leading up to Memorial Day weekend, which I guess extended to the weekend before this year. So I decided to take advantage of being on the East Coast and keep heading east… over the pond to Munich, Germany, where I met up with Craig and a group of his friends for the end of their European tour. We had a blast! The trip started out rather ominously. I {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: Back from Vienna

After those last two very long blog posts on Vienna and Ragnar, how about a (slightly) shorter weekend recap? I got home from Vienna on Thursday afternoon, and dove right back into life in Superior. My friend Heidi was throwing a “girls’ night in” with a twist: she invited various local beauty vendors to host their services at her house, and all of us got to sip wine and nibble on desserts and hors d’oeuvres in between treatments. Even though {Read More}
