Hello everyone! I hope you all had a fantastic Memorial Day weekend! Mine went by SO fast, and I had a blast. But, it’s back to business. Plus, I’ve missed everyone in the blogosphere. Let’s recap the craziness that was the weekend here.
Thursday night after my sister’s graduation ceremony Ian and I headed up to Nebraska to stay with my family at our lake house for the weekend. To preface this, know that I have spent the majority of my summers at this lake since I was a kid. It’s my second home! Colorado may be in my blood, but Nebraska (and lots of lake water!!) is in my heart.
I didn’t take many pictures, but I did snag one of a quiet morning drinking my coffee out on the patio. Coffee tastes SO much better at the lake 😉
We spent our days playing at the beach, boating and enjoying the company of the genuine people in this small town.
I also snapped the cutest picture of a family friend’s little Coppertone baby.
His swim trunks were a little bit too big!
I headed home Sunday night to rest up for my race on Monday morning!
Monday started bright and early with a drive into Boulder in a 64′ Cadillac. There were seven of us. Yes, it was hilarious.
We ran the BolderBOULDER 10k! The shuttle from the parking lot to the start line took 45 minutes and I had to pee (naturally, I have the bladder of a hummingbird). This meant we missed our wave and had to start in a later wave which didn’t really matter to us. We were all doing it for fun!
I do this race every year with my dad, but he wasn’t able to participate this year because of an injury. Next year dad, next year!
Anyways, the race was awesome and I always have so much fun running it. It runs through the neighborhoods of Boulder and there is always a slip ‘ n’ slide, keg stands ( I would puke!!) cotton candy and random entertainment. Its by far the most fun race that I have ever ran. Must be why I keep coming back for more!
I finished with a few of my friends in 1:03, not bad if you ask me!!
If you ever want to run a race in Colorado, I highly recommend the BolderBOULDER. Although it IS crowded (over 50k people!), it is SO much fun and you will be entertained the whole race.
My friend also ended up with a pool to take home. Don’t ask me how. So naturally we had a pool party in the middle of the post-race festivities.
The races on my schedule should be chilling out now, but hey, you never know! 😉
I’m ready to get back into the swing of things but fully enjoyed my weekend off!
Questions for you:
- How did you spend Memorial Day weekend?
- What’s the funnest race you’ve ever ran?!
