Race Report: Bolder Boulder 10K

BolderBoulder_2022_Finish (1)

After my last post, I thought I was on the mend. My business trip was mostly successful, and for about a week, I got my crying time down to 1-3 hours a day. That may sound bad, but I thought it was amazing compared to what it was before. Crying for only a few hours today meant that I could work, could exercise, could start trying to repair friendships… and it felt manageable, at least in the short term. Then on Thursday, I woke up at 4am in my hotel room in Chicago, crying hysterically. Why? I don’t know. There were only …

Reacting to Another Fire


Yesterday started out well. First thing in the morning, Sadie and I stopped by Red Rocks Park for a trail run. I’ve spent the first three months of the year either focused on fire recovery and not working out, or up in the mountains to ski, so this was actually my first trail run of the year. And it was a good one! I had been checking out several options on AllTrails, but most reports indicated that mud was still a problem. My boyfriend had suggested that Red Rocks is usually so hard packed it doesn’t get muddy, and he …

Weekend Recap: Misty Meadow Mountain and Vail Beer Festival


Friday was my company’s annual promotion day, where all the promotions for the year are announced, and we celebrate. This year, we were still obviously not doing an in-person celebration, but our local office arranged for a magician to perform on Zoom (and he was phenomenal, – I wasn’t expecting much over Zoom, but it was awesome!), and the national organization arranged for Keith Urban to perform. I haven’t really listened to much Keith Urban in a while, but I got really into it, singing and dancing in front of my laptop screen 🙂 Now I want to go to a …

Weekend Recap: Three Peaks and Backcountry Barbecue


Friday was a busy day at work, but I capped it off with a relaxing night – enjoying sushi, sake, and The Greatest Showman on my couch! I have been wanting to see The Greatest Showman forever, and just never taken the time to do so… it was excellent. The next morning, I woke up far too early – 4:30am! Not good when I didn’t get to sleep until 11:30 🙁 I would have gone hiking right away, but since it was still pitch black out, I headed to my computer to knock out some work for a while. Unfortunately, I …

Weekend Recap: COVID Birthday


Well, my birthday this year was not quite what I expected… but I guess that’s the theme of 2020, right? Normally, I like to take a day off work (whether on my birthday or close to it) and spend it doing my favorite things. COVID didn’t interrupt that, but my work schedule did – I didn’t block the day soon enough, and my calendar filled up with a bunch of meetings that I didn’t want to cancel. So while I couldn’t get in an all-day mountain adventure, I settled for starting my work day with a favorite trail run. To …
