Yikes, it’s been awhile. Again. What can I say? Other than, “I’ve been busy!” It’s true, of course. But I know everyone is busy with different things. So my other excuse for not blogging is: I am on the computer all day at work and don’t want to be on it when I’m home. So there. I’ll just catch you up on my life. My last updates post was in mid May followed by the Bolder Boulder Post Race Recap! After the Bolder Boulder… 1. I ran the Beer Relay in Lyons, CO. SOOOO SOOO SOOOOOOO much fun!!! Highly recommend it! June: 2. Went on a random adventure to Buena Vista with a new boy. 😉 Hiked, got beer and and visited the hot springs! 3. I hosted another one of my Brew Tour runs. (In case you don’t know: I work for a running company, 3W Races, in Colorado. I mostly do marketing, production and run club promotions but I also helped make the 3W Run Club – the Brew Tour and am a mini race director one time per month, run club style, meeting at a different brewery each month!) 4. I did Ragnar Trail – Snowmass. It was fun-ish. It rained the whole time on us. 5. I started climbing A LOT more! 6. Went to a TON of run clubs in June (and July) to promote 3W Races. 7. Worked the Skirt Sports 13er. 8. Had a fun date-adventure up in Fort Collins. I had to go to a run club, so I brought a special someone to join me and we explored a brewery up there! 9. Ran the Father’s Day Classic. Placed 2nd in my age group. 10. Went on another date-adventure to Colorado Springs for a run club and decided to hike the Manitou Incline with said special someone. 11. Saw Joan Jett in concert!!!!! It was… AWESOME!!! July: 12. Worked the Longmont Half on the 4th of July. 13. Got out of town and went camping. Watched fireworks in a small town in Colorado.
17. Hiked Golden Gate Park while the special boy and his friend climbed. 18. High school reunion. Meh. 19. My second multi-pitch climb, this time with a super scary traverse and a free-hanging rappel. SCARY but fun.
In general, I have been working 40+ hours per week between 3W Races and my Personal Training/Group Fitness job at the rec. I have been hiking and climbing a lot and I have still been running 3-4 times per week. I am not specifically training and have been going more by feel. If I feel like a run, I’ll go. If I don’t, I don’t run…… And I have been spending a lot of time with this boy…. he makes me smile and takes me on all those crazy climbing adventures! ….wait for it…. AND right NOW I’m in OREGON!! Doing some hiking, running, and site seeing! It’s been fun so far!
Yep! I finally get a vacation! (First one in about two years!) For the first few days, I am with the cross country team I helped coach last year (Arvada High) and once they head back, I will be running a race (a half!) to knock off a new state and hanging out with my step sister! WHEW! And that’s what’s been going on!
