Hey guys! Are you digging the new look? I worked with Ashley over at The Blog Salon on a redesign and am super happy with the way that everything turned out!
As for everything else, the majority of my days this month have been spent traveling for work, hanging out at the gym during the Open workouts and looking at a few places to move!
As for specifics, this month I’m currently
Missing San Diego!
I went out to San Diego this month for a Brooks Running Influencer event for work. I had SO much fun hanging out with Andy + Ashleigh, and it was a nice change of pace to chat face-to-face instead of over email all the time.
Happy that the Open is over.
I’m happy with my performance this year, albeit it was a very difference atmosphere this go-round. The movements were much more technical, the weight was heavier and CrossFit in general is getting more and more competitive. I didn’t mind it, as the only workout I couldn’t do RX was 14.3, which started with muscle ups.
There was a lot of talk about the scaled version being too scaled and I kind of have to agree. I feel like the spirit of the open is to push yourself and —fingers crossed — gain a new skill. They made the RX workouts super technical because there was an option for a scaled workout. But what about the athletes that can’t do something as advanced as a muscle up but still are technically sound in double-unders, HSPUs and the like?
Just my two cents. I’ll probably make a lot of people irritated by saying it, but hey — you can’t please everyone.
On a different note, I’m super excited to get back to my normal routine and focus on my own skill/strength goals! Weeee!
Scouring Craigslist every morning.
Ian and I are looking to move a little more up north to cut down on my hour long commute by even 15-20 minutes. I guess I didn’t realize that rent has SKYROCKETED in Colorado, because I realized I’m going to have to give up the second bedroom (yep) or washer/dryer (hell no) in order to keep it reasonably within our budget.
Besides Craigslist, I’ve been googling property management companies but am having one heck of a time! We are over renting from apartment complexes and would love to rent from a private owner or property management company.
Colorado friends — If you know anyone renting a house/townhouse/condo in North Golden/Arvada/Westminster email me!
Eating all-the-smoothie-bowls and loving this flip flop weather!
Helllooooo warm weather! It’s starting to finally feel like Spring and I couldn’t be more excited! I love being able to hang out outside after work without it getting dark at 5pm.
Yay for warm weather and spring flowers!
Oh, and smoothie bowls. I can’t get enough lately.
