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}

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: Saratoga and Vail

My weekend started off with a little trip – up to Albany, New York to visit my family! I’ve been working on a project in New York City recently, which made it feasible to pop up to Albany for two days before flying home. While it’s not part of the “weekend”, my mom came down to New York on Tuesday, and we were able to get discounted tickets on Tuesday night to see Kelli O’Hara in Kiss Me Kate. Then on {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Election Weekend!

Weekend recap from November 3 and 4. This was the final weekend before the election (eee!), and as expected, things were a little hectic trying to make sure I finished strong, as people kept telling me to do. But how do you “finish strong”? With 80% of the ballots already turned in, it didn’t necessarily make sense to host an event or send out more flyers. My goal was just not to cause a scandal in these last few days {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Trail Run Improvements and Family Birthday

I’ll just go ahead and start my weekend recap on Thursday, since I had the rest of the week off after July 4th. I started my day with a trail run up Rattlesnake Gulch – my favorite trail to run as of late. It’s 3.2 miles up to the Continental Divide Overlook, along with 1282 feet of gain, but I’ve been trying to run more of it and walk less. Even though I had just gone hard in the Superior {Read More}

Weekend Recap: Stretching Myself at Work and On the Trails

This was a bit of a short weekend, but a great one! Whenever I try to title my weekend recaps, I usually try to think of a theme to sum it all up, and this weekend’s was something about pushing myself to grow in a lot of different areas. This weekend was a big one for reflection on how much I’ve pushed myself (and succeeded!) in both running and my career. Both are still certainly works in progress, but I {Read More}

Back to Central Park

Yesterday, I had a quick overnight in NYC for work – but that was enough time for me to sneak in dinner with a few friends, plus a run in Central Park. It’s always a treat to get to go visit New York, where I lived for so long! While Colorado was chilly this weekend, Manhattan was pretty hot yesterday – it was in the mid-80s when I headed out for a run after work. So sticky! But the lack {Read More}

Race Report: Run for the Roses 5K

I had wanted to write this race report on Sunday, so it would be as fresh in my mind as possible. I had thought this was going to be an awesomely excited race report about how much faster I’m getting and how much I ended up PRing by. Instead, as I noted in Monday’s quick post, I’m incredibly disappointed and frustrated with my poor performance :( Leading up to the race, I did (mostly) everything right. I didn’t work out {Read More}

Summer Sunday in New York

This was a really fabulous summer weekend. Although I’ve spent a lot of time on planes (today is day five of taking a flight every single day), all that flying has helped me be exactly where I need to be, even when I live thousands of miles away. Yesterday, that was in Manhattan, where I got to spend an amazing afternoon/evening with Theodora. I got to New York midday Sunday, just in time for the Pride Parade, which was going {Read More}

Class Review: Mile High Run Club

My experience at Mile High Run Club is limited to one class, which I took this morning. But today was probably my favorite gym class I have ever taken in my life! Despite the Colorado-sounding name, Mile High is only in New York, so I probably won’t get to take another class for months :( Rather than wait for more experience to write a comprehensive review, I wanted to share how amazing I thought Mile High was so that anyone who lives {Read More}
