Omg I’m so behind on my blogs. I have like four things to write about so I really need to hammer these out!! Hahah So a couple weeks ago my sister and I took our kids down to my folks place in New Mexico. My parents live about 50 minutes south of Santa Fe, and … Continue reading Bushwhacking Adventure
February is one of the snowiest months in Colorado... and low and behold, it’s holding true to form. We had a fun little system that came through and gave us a run for our money. Closing schools and dropping waaayyyy more snow than was anticipated!! So Friday, we did what every proper family does on … Continue reading Snow Adventures
Wind is just hills in gaseous form…
Wind is just hills in gaseous form... I freaking love this. I wish I could say I was that cool and creative but alas, I am not. A friend I rode with quoted this to me today and I think he said he stole it from someone else. Genius though. I will use this a … Continue reading Wind is just hills in gaseous form…
Leadville… so this is happening…
Yeah, so back at the beginning of December I did this silly thing and put my name in the Lottery for the Leadville Trail 100 MTB. Basically I was like, ok, if I don't get in... whatever! And if I do get in... Shit. I feel like in some ways I was kind of hoping … Continue reading Leadville… so this is happening…
Time to Race Again!!
Reflecting back on the last year, it’s admittedly been rough. But I think the wonderful thing about reflection is you get to look back and take note of the things that troubled you, the things you loved, and then plan forward for how you want to change things going forward. I took the last two … Continue reading Time to Race Again!!

Poor … Continue reading Providing for my Body
Makeup when working out
So how many time have you gone to the gym and thought damn, that girl looks good during her workout?? Wait... she had makeup on?! All sweaty and gross, but she’s got pretty eyes or it looks like she curled her hair before she put it in a ponytail. I’m totally guilty of those judgements. … Continue reading Makeup when working out
The last few weeks have been an incredible journey. And not in a good way. My life overall has not been one that has allowed me to be open and express my true feelings. I recall my childhood being one of being told how to think, how to feel, how to dress, how to talk. … Continue reading Vulnerability
Year recap ….
Well. I realize it's been nearly a year since I've made a post. Something I've talked for months now of getting back to. What better time than the present when I can't sleep?? Some circumstances have caused me to look back on this year, which I suppose we normally do as a year draws to … Continue reading Year recap ….
So How About This for Adventure?!
Life really is an adventure isn't it?? It doesn't follow a script. It doesn't follow any sort of prescribed story line. It just is this crazy, free flowing river of decisions, choices, fate, destiny, or whatever you want to attach to it. When I was 18 I got married, I was very naive, immature, and … Continue reading So How About This for Adventure?!
