Race Recap: Superior Mile

Race run on July 4, 2019 Last Thursday morning was the annual Superior Mile. While this has become an annual tradition for me, this year’s event was a little different than in years past! Craig had an 8am flight, so our alarm was set for 5:30am. I figured I’d get him out the door, then have plenty of time to get ready and leave for the 7:00am race start. However, somehow time got away from me and I didn’t end {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: 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}

Race Report: Bolder Boulder 10K

Race report from May 27, 2019 I signed up for the Bolder Boulder several months ago, as has become tradition. (I love having a Memorial Day running tradition – it used to be Vermont City Marathon, now it’s Bolder Boulder!) However, I really haven’t been running much, and expected I’d be much slower this year than in years past. Which is fine – if I haven’t been training, I can’t expect much, right? I had a blast running a lot of miles {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 / Race Recap: Ragnar Virginia

Thursday night kicked off my second ever Ragnar Relay experience. Although this time was with many of the same coworkers from when I ran Ragnar Chicago last year, this year’s race was totally different – we had signed up for a trail Ragnar in Richmond, Virginia! Trail Ragnar Relays are very different from road Ragnar Relays. On the road, you and your teammates are all in a van, while one person runs. At designated exchanges, another team member jumps out {Read More}

Weekend Recap / Race Report: Superior Stocking Run

Recap of the weekend of December 14-16 This much-anticipated weekend had several big things going on that I’d been excited about for weeks! Friday kicked off with a very special occasion: I had tickets to see White Christmas at the Denver Center. I don’t go to shows at the Denver Center nearly as much as I’d like (maybe that’s the start of a 2019 new year’s resolution?), but a few weeks earlier, I had gotten an email about the show… and {Read More}

Race Report: Christopher Dailey Turkey Trot

For Thanksgiving’s long weekend, I flew up to Albany to visit my family. Although I had just been for a visit in September for my brother’s 40th birthday, I was still super psyched to get back and see everyone! I had a few flight delays, but nothing terrible, which was great considering that I was flying the day before Thanksgiving, which is the highest traffic day. However, I still didn’t arrive in great spirits thanks to a night of almost {Read More}

Weekend Recap and Race Report: Sammy’s Family Fun Run 5K

Yikes, I’m a week behind on this! I still want to post it as a diary for me for future, and because it contains a race report :) This weekend was a bit of a mixed bag. Saturday was a bit slow, but Sunday was one the busiest days I’ve had in months – and that’s saying something :) Friday night, I headed up to Boulder to meet a friend for a drink, and then head to Boulder Dinner Theater. {Read More}

Race Report: Run for the Horses 5K

I ran the Run for the Horses 5K on Saturday September 1, in Saratoga Springs, NY. For a refresher, the night before the race, my flight got delayed several hours, and I finally got to Albany at 3am and into bed at 3:30am. Not good when I had to be up at 6:30am for the race! My Fitbit vibrating alarm woke me up with a jolt on Saturday morning, and I knew I was definitely not rested. For a few {Read More}
