LTYM: Boulder- Video Release, Overdue Recap

So, there’s this little thing called The Listen To Your Mother Show. It features local writers reading their own essays on motherhood- the experience of being one, having one, or knowing one, in celebration of Mother’s Day. I’ve co-produced the Boulder LTYM show for three years in a row now, and it has been amazing. My […]

A Woman’s Guide to Buying a Car (It’s more like TJ Maxx shopping than you think).

Soon after I peed on the stick, we (ok, I) started to fantasize about a bigger car. Both Dan and I drive older, compact sedans. Even a weekend trip with Sweet Pea found my Jetta stuffed as tight as my 28 weeks pregnant belly. Also, I was daydreaming of a vehicle that would not require […]

The most meaningful 800 words I’ve written

I alluded to the article I wrote for Colorado Runner Magazine a couple of posts ago, and I think we need to come back to that. I am excited about it not just because it’s a thrill to see my name in print. And not just because I got paid to do something I love […]

Traveling with my Toddler: Heaven is Having My Lap to Myself

This holiday season an amazing thing happened. I enjoyed air travel with my toddler. I even read a few chapters of my book on the plane. See, I used to love planes. I loved everything about air travel. I liked to buy a magazine, a processed snack and a $4 bottle of water at the […]

Epic Ride: Mount Evans Hill Climb

When I moved to Colorado a couple of years ago I had heard that people ride their bikes to the top of Mount Evans, but I for one was totally not interested. The ride starts at about 7600′ and ends at 14,130′. No thanks, this flatlander was having trouble going up the stairs at 5430′. […]

Race Report: Boulder 70.3

The race happened last weekend, but better late than never…I really really wanted to break 6 hours for this race. I was watching the weather carefully leading up to it, hoping it would not be 90 degrees for the run. I think it ended up being closer to 80 than 90, so definitely could have […]

Race Report: Pearl Street Mile

I am overdue for a report on the Boulder 70.3 (which was awesome!) but the Pearl Street Mile was tonight, therefore more fresh in my mind and also was only a mile, so it will be a quicker post. I wasn’t sure if I should even do the race because I thought my legs were […]

Race Report: Boulder Peak Triathlon

I rode my bike up to the race venue, using ONLY bike paths, which was pretty cool, considering the race is completely all the way on the other side of town. I got there with only about 30 minutes before they closed transition but I hurried and the only thing I forgot was to take […]

Travel Diary

Sunday 6am: Alarm goes off.
