2020 New Year’s Resolutions


Last year, I kind of whiffed on my New Year’s resolutions. New Year’s is normally one of my favorite holidays because it reminds me to think about my goals and set some new intentions. But in January 2019, I think I was too exhausted from the election and caught up in trying to figure everything out with my new role as an elected official! I’d like to get my tradition of resolution-making going again, so here I present to you my 2020 New Year’s resolutions / goals. Read 100 books. This makes the list every year, as I track my …

Weekend Recap: Beaver Creek Talons Challenge


Recap of February 23-24 This was a really exciting weekend for me, as I achieved a huge ski goal for myself! And when that was done, I also got some down time as I gear up to get back on the road for work. Friday was a busy day of work (as usual), but I was able to book some calls for the afternoon during which I could drive out to the mountains. I left around 1:30pm, well before the Friday night traffic kicked in… but due to some icy roads and accidents that closed down I-70, I still ended …

My Next Big Challenge


Today is my 33rd birthday, and I’m thrilled to announce my next big challenge. In elementary school, they would ask one question each year of every student for the yearbook. In kindergarten, I said that when I grew up, I wanted to be the first female president of the United States… and also a ballerina. My dreams and goals have changed a lot over the last few decades – like when I went from being a nerdy non-athletic bookworm to breaking a world record in running! But today, I’m proud to announce a new goal. This fall, I’ve decided to run …

The No-Decision Workout

I had a rough night of travel last night. I accidentally left my driver’s license at home (I had stashed it in a pocket of my ski jacket this weekend and forgotten to retrieve it), which meant some hassle trying to get through TSA security without an ID. It was surprisingly easier than I expected – I showed them a credit card with my name on it and a prescription in my bag with my name and address, and then I just had to submit to a full pat down and search of my bags. But I had forgotten that …

Spring Training, Spring Racing


Some days, I feel like everything is going wrong at work and I can’t get anything done. But other days, I feel like I’m on fire and just knocking things out one after the other! Today was the latter, and I can’t help but wonder if it happens to be the fact that I got back to working out in earnest this morning, and went to a 6am Orangetheory class? (Or maybe the guys at Dunkin Donuts spiked my coffee with caffeinated rather than the decaf I normally drink.) My happy news today is that my foot has been mostly …
