Bolder Boulder 2019

Memorial Day morning found 5 of the 7 of us running through the streets of Boulder for the annual Bolder Boulder 10K. We could not have asked for a nicer day, it started out cool and cloudy with just enough sun poking through to justify our short sleeves but never enough to make it too…

Bolder Boulder 2018

This past Monday on Memorial Day we ran the Bolder Boulder, it was my 6th (I think), Leighton’s 4th, Clint’s 2nd, and Caedmon’s 1st. Leighton and I ran together because he qualified for a faster wave and Clint and Caedmon went together. It was the perfect running day as well, it started out cool and…

Bolder Boulder 2017-He Did It!

As Leighton and I loaded up Monday morning for the Bolder Boulder at 5:45AM I knew it was going to be a day of lessons. It was either going to be a lesson on how hard work and perseverance pay off and goals are met, or it was going to be a lesson on how…

Bolder Bouldering Along…

Memorial Day 2017 is almost here which means it is almost time for America’s favorite race, the Bolder Boulder. This is the 38th year that the Memorial Day Bolder Boulder has been run through the streets of Boulder, Colorado and it will be my 5th race, and Leighton’s 3rd race. This year he decided that…

Bolder Boulder 2017 Training

And so it begins. Actually since I made it my goal to run 1000 miles this year I started running on the 1st, with the intent of getting ready to train and be in shape for Imogene Pass again come September, but Leighton has decided that he wants to finish in the top 15 in…

Bolder Boulder 2016-Race Day!

Happy Memorial Day to everyone! Our day started early, with the little guys at my parent’s house for the night, we were up early to get ready for the 2016 Bolder Boulder. I think this was my 4th running of it, but there was a 20 year gap between the 2nd and 3rd times. Today…

Still Running…

This time of year is a little crazy with running. Somedays I’m in layers and yaktrax and then a few days later in shorts with water bottle in hand as I cover the miles. And its great. I was driving to work this AM just as the sun was rising and seriously considering just pulling…

Running Along

Alright a little over 7 months to go till Imogene Pass Run. And yes it’s still early enough they haven’t even posted the registration date yet. But I’m getting ready. I figure if I’m going to run 17 miles and in the first 10 miles go up 5000+feet I’d best start preparing. Really looking forward…

Bolder Boulder 2015

I hope this becomes a recurring post each year. I first ran the Bolder Boulder 10K race when I was in the 7th grade with a neighbor girl that I ran track with. Was either of us prepared to run 6.2 miles? Not really, did we have any clue what we were doing? Not really,…
