Running On No Sugar…

So I’m about a month into the no sugar thing. How’s it going you might ask….well today instead of ordering white chicken with my rice bowl I told the lady taking my order that I wanted white chocolate….oops. And the other day when Clint came home from the store I asked him what sweet things…

On The Trail Again…

Well I must have caught the bug last year at Imogene, because I was crazy enough to sign up again this year. And I registered in time to make the cut off, I think it filled in less than 30 minutes. And so my feet are going to put in lots of miles in the…

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…

2017 Goals….

On Sunday night we sat around the dinner table and talked with the boys about resolutions and toasted with sparkling cranberry apple cider. We shared what our goals were for the year. They varied widely…from eating a whole hot dog to running 1000 miles to not throwing a fit about long division in math. You…

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…

Pushing through

And here I sit. Less than 2 weeks to go from my ½ marathon. Same ½ marathon Clint and I have run for the past 4 years together. I know the course. I dread mile 10 and the hill. It’s probably not really that big of a hill but in my mind it’s roughly the…

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…

And Hello 2016…

So I’m not real sure the last time I saw midnight on New Years Eve, I think it was 2011-2012 when I worked the overnight shift in the ER. I know, I’m such a party animal. I don’t always get it, sure another year has passed and chances to start over or start fresh or…

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,…
