Leaf Peeping // Fall Colors

Tis the season...of fall colors. While I'll always talk about missing the reds + oranges of the Midwest there is no denying the beauty of the Colorado yellows. It may not be the end of September yet, but we've already woken up to snow-topped peaks on the horizon more than once. I've even had the pleasure of driving over a snowy mountain pass already...so. not. ready. (more…)

Meandering Dirt Ribbons

Sometimes I have a million + a half words to throw down on a page. Words about the trail or words about my feelings or words of advice or...just words. Other times, I have no words. Or at least I don't have words that make any sense or follow any logical thought process. That is me, right now. I have a lot on my mind, but it doesn't quite make sense yet. (more…)

Home; Settling In

Sometimes I sit down at my computer, load up Wordpress + settle in to write about something very specific. Maybe it's a trail story or a race recap [ha, that's been a while] or a "hey, this is what's up" update. Usually, I make a point to leave home then get focused + motivated with a fancy pants latte from my favorite coffee shop [or whatever coffee shop will let me buy caffeine in exchange for internet access]. Lately, I've been writing with a purpose...motivated by experiences or some sort of income. (more…)

Thinking About Running

Thinking About Running. For Fun. Probably. Maybe. Or Not. We'll See.

It's finally happening...I'm thinking about running. It's not just the "hey, look at that person running, I used to do that!" type of thinking that has been floating around in my head since I discovered running shoes. Nope. It is more serious than that. I've actually been thinking about the possibility of going running on the regular. (more…)

Currently.

I've spent the last few months...not writing, not overworking + not running. Instead, I've been wandering, planning + spending time doing not-so-crazy things with people I really enjoy being around. I don't want to jinx myself by saying "life is slowing down", but my life choices seem to be a bit more purposeful. The "because, why not" way of decision-making isn't going anywhere,┬átrust me. But I've been a bit more intentional with my choices lately. (more…)

Currently.

And just like that, it's December. We still grossly low on snow up here in the Rocky Mountains but the weather has taken a turn for the colder [much colder] so I guess we can officially say winter has arrived. Finally. The resorts opened 3+ weeks behind schedule which meant those of us lucky enough to snag mountain jobs were stuck with an extra 3 weeks of free time, sans paycheck. (more…)

Buffalo’s Boulders

Buffalo's Boulders; Finally Finding the Summit of Buffalo Mountain

Oh me, oh my. It has been far too long since I've had an opportunity to wander off into the wilderness simply because it was out there + waiting for me. Winter is finally here + the time suck that is a job is finally in full swing. I'm back to working 50-70 hours a week between both jobs. It's really not that bad, but it is time consuming. Once I add in the time I spend commuting on the bus 4-5 days a week + the long hours of wintery darkness my window of opportunity to get outside has narrowed. A lot. Of course, this is all my own doing + it was fully expected, yet the reality check of how little time I have to roam after a summer dedicated to roaming it's not an easy pill to swallow. (more…)
