Weekend Recap: Sick or Lazy? / Workouts Lately


Weekend of February 9-10 This is going to be a pretty short weekend recap… but after Friday night, there’s not a lot to report! Friday was a very big day for me at work. I’ve spent the last few months planning for SheTech Colorado, a one-day conference for high school girls to get them excited about careers in STEM, and Friday it all came to fruition! I was on tap to give some welcoming remarks in the beginning (right before our lieutenant governor!), then host a small group workshop on facial recognition technology before lunch, and finally judge the afternoon …

The Great Pumpkin Haul: Training Workout and Discount Code

After several months of not doing any races, I’ve finally signed up for one. It’s less than a tenth the distance of a marathon, but it’s actually one that I need to train for all the same. Behold: The Great Pumpkin Haul. Your entry fee gets you not only a race bib, tee, and some tasty (pumpkin!) beer at the finish line, but also a pumpkin from a giant patch near the race location, at Chatfield Gardens in Littleton, CO. You will need to arrive to the start early to browse the patch and pick your pumpkin – but choose …

Low Impact Weekend


This has been a bit of a crazy week. The Friday before last, I flew from Denver to Chicago for the weekend, then back to Dallas Sunday night to Wednesday night, and then flew back again to Chicago for a conference before returning on Denver on Friday afternoon. Did you follow all that? Since the altitude in Colorado has really been giving me trouble on my long runs, I decided that my final long run before the Colfax Marathon would be in Chicago. Flat land, pretty views of Lake Michigan (since I planned to run on Lakeshore Drive)… what could go wrong? …

Studio Review: Bodybar Dallas

About a month ago, my friend Blake told me about a great trial offer at a Pilates/barre studio in the Dallas area – Bodybar. New clients would get a week of unlimited classes for free! A free week would be the perfect way for me to try everything they had to offer (with different classes, instructors, etc to get a good feel for it), so I jumped on the offer. However, I also wanted to pick a week when I would be in Dallas as many days as possible and have as few other fitness events planned, in order to …

Checking In: Why I’m Not Stronger in September

Well, I’ve been pretty quiet so far this month, huh? Time for me to get back into the blogging game, especially since fall marathon season has begun. Lots of race recaps to share (I’m planning to finish my Bozeman Marathon recap on Friday), plus I also wanted to do a mid-month check in on my Stronger in September challenge. Thanks to a Bodybar Dallas one-week-unlimited pass that needed to be used last week, I ended up taking pilates/barre classes all week long. While I had taken mat pilates classes as a young ballet dancer, last week was my first time experiencing …
