Deep Thoughts, Fast Legs and Brutal Germs
24.05.2013 - 06.06.2013 65 °F
How can I be expected to keep this thing up to date when so much life just keeps happening!?! When I stop to think about any snippit of time lately there is just so much jammed in there, that I almost have to do a double take and wonder how so much could actually fit and how was so much accomplished. Once again I am reduced to bullet points to try and capture the last two weeks.
Hanging lake, TT Bikes, Icecream dates, Art festival, Full moon, Long rides, Brick runs, Freezing cold lake 'dunk', Climbing on rocks, Campfire smoke, Quinoa bowls of deliciousness, Shooting stars, Continuous fireworks, Annies mac, Muddy feet, Country music, Not country music and Just good ol' adventure time.
Yoga & Trail Runs
I've been doing yoga once a week. Not so much for the physical benefits (however, my body does looove the yoga). I find that even just once a week clears out the brain cobwebs. It keeps things clear up there and helps me focus. In the beginning of each class we are all asked to set an intention. I like this practice. To take just a moment and dedicate some clear focus to the next x-number of moments. Maybe we should all set intentions before we go about, well, anything.

Red Rocks Amphitheater
What a great night. Red Rocks is just incredible. Big rocks, stars overhead, good music, great company.....and just a carved out majestic piece o' Colorado. I'm feeling pretty darn lucky these days.
Boulder Sunrise Race
This was my first overall womens win, in Colorado. This was a big deal for me, especially when paired with a new all time personal best 10k time 40:18.
Lots of good times with the EK Endurance crew. Huge shout outs to everyone who came out for a strong day!
This is why I am sitting inside, in bed, staring at a computer screen on such a beautiful day. I've just been so exhausted. What started as a sore throat has grown into just wicked tiredness, headachy, lame, blah, frustrating sick-land of being 'off'. Not training makes me feel so useless. So I am doing my darnedest to get well ASAP. I'm on my 4th liter of water so far today. Woof.
Go Pro Mountain Games this weekend (another reason I can't be freakin' sick!) Elizabeth and I are working on some pretty epic costumes. Three races. Two Days. Hoot. Hoot.Stay tuned.....
My New Mantra
Here's to peace, vitamin C and family,
