Running + CrossFitting through Life Lately


Hellllllooo! This post is about to be a whole lotta random. So get ready. There’s a few things that I’ve been absolutely loving lately, and they range from things like leafy, green vegetables all the way to baby mohawks. We’ll dive into those another day. But, if you’ve learned anything from the last sentence is […]

Trail Running For Beginners: Matthews/Winters Park

Trail running for beginners

It’s no secret that I’ve taken up a hobby of playing on dusty (or rocky!) trails lately. After being dragged off of my cozy pull-out couch at Blend one morning by Heidi (who runs 50+ miles for fun FYI), I discovered that trail running is much more interesting than road running. I’m going to pull a […]

Trail Fun With New Balance

hiking greys peak in new balance

A little over a week ago, I played hookie and drove up to Boulder to hang out with the New Balance crew. I headed up mid-morning where I met Lynne, Heidi and Heather in the hotel lobby, along with the rest of the peeps ready to have some fun. I really don’t mind going to events […]

Yoga on the Rocks [+ a giveaway!]


Last Saturday I woke up bright and early (5:00am on Saturdays have become a new norm. WHAT?) to meet my friend Shelby at Red Rocks for some yoga. Red Rocks teamed up with Core Power to give four Saturday sessions of Yoga on the Rocks. I was planning on attending the event anyways, so when […]

Fueling Adventures with Silk

We ended up renting paddleboards and goofing around on Evergreen Lake for about an hour. It was SO much fun. I haven’t been paddleboarding in ages, and it’s such a […]

Beach Camping Dinners + Snacks


Hi friends! I’m heading back up to the lake this weekend for a wedding which will include a lot of beach time, beer time and campfire lounging in-between the I do’s. Only 3 more sleeps! Whenever we go to the lake, I try brainstorm a list of easy meals to eat cold at the beach […]



It’s that elm shade red roads clay you grew up on. It;s always a good day when you reach into the bag and pull out a handful of red and yellow gummy worms. Or when a gas station has red/white mixed airheads.  coffee tastes much better at the lake My 4th of July in a […]

Lose The Bottle, Gain Some Wine… I Mean Time


There’s nothing better than a glass of wine on the patio on a warm summer’s night. Know what’s even better? A quick, simple and delicious dinner, followed by said glass of wine and an extra hour to hang out and RELAX after work. It’s super easy to get caught up in the go-go-go [I do […]

The Trail Running Bug


Ever since I ventured out on the trails in Park City, I’ve spent much more time here at home exploring all of dirt, rocks and wildflowers that so happens to be just a few minutes from my house. North Table Mountain post-rainstorm There’s something that is so much different about trail running than road running, […]
