Weekend Recap: Double Dog Date Weekend


My work day on Friday ended in an excellent way – with a wine tasting! I had a pretty frenetic work day up until then, but it was really nice to know that there was a hard stop to the day. This event had fifty people, and I did a class on the basics of wine tasting, then we tasted a variety of Coppola wines. I had actually visited the Coppola winery when I went to Sonoma years ago, and it’s a really cool place to visit! However, I have to admit that the wines are not totally my favorite …

Weekend Recap: Copper Mountain Skiing

Saturday_Night_Spread (1)

We got a big snowstorm Thursday night, which meant my Friday morning started out taking Sadie on a five mile run through the snow drifts. I was so glad I did! Honestly, my days are always so much better when I start them with a run. Around midday, I headed up to the mountains for what would end up being my last ski weekend of the year. On my drive to Minturn, I stopped at Vail to squeeze a few runs in, but when I headed up over the top of the mountain to Sun Up Bowl, I was really …

Weekend Recap: Mom’s Birthday


This was a weekend I had been planning for a very long time, and I was really excited it was finally here. It kicked off on Thursday afternoon. At 2pm, I told my mom I was headed to the grocery store, and hopped into the car to take a call while driving… to the airport to pick up my dad! He and I had hatched a plan to fly him to Colorado for the weekend to celebrate my mom’s birthday, and she had no idea. I was nervous for weeks that I was going to accidentally let it slip, but the surprise …

Weekend Recap: Spring Break Ski Lessons


This weekend was the start of spring break for many Americans (though in Colorado we do ours a week later), which meant it was a prime weekend / week for teaching skiing. I had signed up to work Sunday and Monday, taking a vacation day from my consulting job to do so. However, the impending blizzard meant I actually needed to head out to the mountains Friday in order to beat the storm, as I was worried the roads would close… so I signed up to teach on Saturday as well. My mom was a little reluctant to be left …

Weekend Recap: Long Run and Mountains with Sadie

Sadie_Loves_Skiing (1)

My weekend kicked off in a pretty typical way – after my last meeting of the day, I knocked out a bunch more work and cleaned out my inbox a bit to try to destress, then made pizza with Mom… and also snuck in a quick Peloton chest and back class while it baked. In the evening, we watched two episodes of Smash before I was exhausted and called it a night. We are working our way through this series! The next morning, I woke up and tried to head out for my long run almost immediately. I’ve finally learned that …
