I’ve been keeping a secret…

About a month ago, I texted Heidi to see what her plans were for the weekend. The conversation went a little something like this: H: “I’m volunteering for an ultra and camping! Wanna come?” Me: “Only if I can borrow a warm sleeping bag.” Simple as that. I was in. Next thing I knew we […]

Call The Wambulance — My Quads are Fried!

IMG_9324

I’m currently sitting on my couch drinking Kombucha [which, btw, is fermented tea. Which I was told was another word for rotting. I love rotten tea.] I have no desire to do anything except stare at a computer screen, take a bath and drink my rotten, vinegar drink. PS — Kombucha is actually really delicious. […]

IMG_9292

When we last spoke, I was about to tell you about my 3am, 8.5-mile leg. To preface this, let me first tell you that I literally wanted to CRY before this leg. Not kidding. I was rolled up in my sleeping bag thinking horrible thoughts about the race director who decided 8.5 miles in the […]

When New Balance contacted me and asked if I wanted to join their team of 12 bloggers for the Reach the Beach […]

Sunny Trails + Easy Dinners

South-mesa-trailhead

Yesterday morning I roped Paige into meeting me for a quick trail run before work. Since Paige lives in Longmont and I work in Boulder, the Boulder trails are a perfect place to meet up in the morning before we have to go be responsible [although I wish I could play on the trails all […]

Since many of you showed interest in me posting my speed workouts, I figured I’d do a weekly series where I shared them with you. After all, I aim to please! If you aren’t familiar with my current workout routine, I’m doing a mixture of CrossFit, speed workouts and trail runs to train for two […]

Running + CrossFitting through Life Lately

IMG_8435

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 […]
