Weekend Recap: Back to Running!!

Weekend of November 2-3 I got back from a business trip to Atlanta on Wednesday night, and then Thursday was Halloween. As I wrote about last week, I went to my brother’s Halloween party as a 60s gogo dancer… and I reused the same costume to hand out candy at home in Superior. But before that, I had a PT appointment… and Emily finally gave me the go-ahead to start running again! I’m not allowed to do much, but Friday morning, {Read More}

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: 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}

Race Report: Broncos 7K

Race report from Saturday June 29 My firm gives us the entire week of July 4th off – amazing! This year, my break kicked off with a race – the Broncos 7K in Fort Collins. I had a busy work day on Friday, mixed with volunteering at Meals on Wheels and Rock Creek School, but wrapped it by heading over to Louisville to celebrate the grand opening of my friend Heidi’s new photography studio. I had originally thought I’d head {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: 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}

Weekend Recap: First Friday, First Weekend in Minturn

Recap of the weekend of December 7-9 This Friday kicked off with my very first “First Friday” as a Town Trustee! This event, an informal breakfast meeting with a few Trustees, was what first got me excited about town politics, so I was thrilled to now get to host it. A lot of the regulars were in attendance, but so were some new faces – a few of whom said they had voted for me, and had questions about how {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Possession Weekend

Recap of the first weekend of December (1-2). This weekend was going to be a busy, but very exciting one – December 1st marked the day I would take possession on my new ski house! I had gone under contract in September, finally closed in mid-November, and then rented back to the previous owner for the rest of the month, so this felt like a long time coming. However, as possession day neared, I started to wish that it wasn’t {Read More}

Weekend Recaps: Slowing Things Down

Combined recap of November 10-11 and 17-18. Thanks for putting up with my tardiness as I catch up on my diary ;) With the election behind me, I’ve finally had a little bit of time to come up for air. These past few months have been jam-packed with events and obligations, so these last two weekends, even though I still had a lot of plans, it felt like I had so much free time. Friday after the election kicked off {Read More}
