Weekend Recap: Friends Make Life Better

This weekend was a little bit hectic, but much better than last! I landed home from Florida (where I was traveling for work) at noon on Friday, and had a deluge of calls and meetings the second I landed. My day ended with a few meetings downtown, and a bit of fun stuff, too. The women’s professional book club I started at my office met from 3pm-5pm, and this month, we read Kim Scott’s Radical Candor: Be a Kick-Ass Boss Without {Read More}

Weekend Recap: She Works Hard for the Money

This was a rough weekend, my friends. I’ve been trying to post more on Instagram Stories lately, sharing both the good and the bad. And honestly, I have been super stressed out with work. I thought it all came to a head in January, when my friend / coworker Elizabeth visited me for the weekend and I just completely melted down, but the stress has continued and I haven’t yet found a way out :/ Friday was a pretty brutal day {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Superbowl Sunday in Vail

This weekend wasn’t quite as restful as it probably should have been – but I packed a lot into another weekend in the mountains! I got home from Atlanta late on Thursday night, and tried to pack up a bit so I’d have an easier time getting out on Friday morning. On Friday, I took a few calls from home, then a few from the road as I drove out to Minturn, stopping to grab a sandwich on the way. {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Beaver Creek Culinary Weekend

This weekend was much better than the last – it was packed! And full of food, wine, and fun with friends :) I got home reasonably early on Thursday from a trip to New York… and was on the same flight as my friend Sara! It was fun to catch up walking through Denver Airport when we landed, and we ended up making plans to meet up on Friday for lunch and to catch up further. On Friday, I knocked {Read More}

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}
