Here’s what I PLAN…let’s see what actually happens.

On my training list was yoga for an hour.

I was late.

So I did yoga for 20 minutes.

Hey…I still did it.

Tomorrow my plan is to run the stairs at Red Rocks.

This is a big deal for me, I’ve never done it before and I always get turned around there. I have no idea how It’ll work out but I have faith I can do it without hurting myself.

Did I ever tell you about driving to Boulder?

When I first moved here (full disclosure at least the first five years…at least)… I would end up at Coors Field on the drive home. That is clear and the hell the other side of Denver. Not at ALL where I wanted to be.

I finally figured out what I was doing wrong, and  I was never afraid to do the drive, but I would get so frustrated knowing I’d take way longer to get home because of some obvious mistake I was making.

It’s a little disconcerting and I’ve been quite lost making my way home from Coors Field. I’m pretty thrilled to have figured THAT out.

Needless to say I’m totally confident in my ability to drive to the amphitheatre (and back, don’t forget back) without getting lost.

Side note:  It’s supposed to be rainy/snowy tomorrow so I may end up at the gym on the stairmaster.

Pray for good weather  (looks cold…43*)

And confident navigation. LOL

Angelina Jolie Pitt:  Diary of a Surgery

I think I’m the only person I know who likes Angelina Jolie Pitt. I think she’s kind of amazing.  She’s talented and beautiful and knows what’s important. She knows her priorities and really doesn’t care what people think of her.

I was so impressed she made this decision. It’s so brave of her to not just choose this path but to be so vocal and public about it.

The beautiful thing about such moments in life is that there is so much clarity. You know what you live for and what matters. It is polarizing, and it is peaceful.

It is not possible to remove all risk, and the fact is I remain prone to cancer. I will look for natural ways to strengthen my immune system. I feel feminine, and grounded in the choices I am making for myself and my family.

Good for her.


I love this.                 (via A Cup of Jo)


I had quiet time in the house today.  MT had to work, Alex is at a friend’s house and Sean worked late.  Though I never like the idea of Sean working late, it’s lovely to just have quiet time in the house.

it’s the little things.

This was me today,  Completed Abbate.  A hero WOD dedicated to a young Marine who died in 2010 in Afghanistan.


Run on…and no excuses.

  1. Twenty minutes of yoga is awesome! I think even ten minutes is great haha. And I am an Angeline Jolie fan too! Girlfriend is just living her life and raising like a million kids and making Brad Pitt pretty happy I think, I respect that 🙂 and her bravery is pretty amazing too 🙂

    1. I agree…I’ll way take the 20 minutes! This morning I found that I needed it yet again so even though I’m working out later, yoga in the morning is such a great way to start the day.

  2. So, I grew up in Independence, Missouri, right outside of Kansas City. After I started driving, there were several times that I would be out somewhere and on the way home make some kind of wrong turn end up in Raytown, another small town outside of Kansas City. Anytime I got lost going someplace new…I’d end up in Raytown. The first time it happened, I had to call home and get directions back to our house (remember…pre-smart phone/gps). When it happened again, I managed to find my way home without a call, but it’s still a running joke in my family.

    1. Ha. I’m sure. And I’m glad I’m not the only one! I mean, how ridiculous is it to not be able to get home?
      Early on he said to me, “if you’re ever lost, just follow the directions to Limon. That will take you home.”
      he was so right. I always follow the directions to Limon and it always leads me straight home. I’ve never actually been there, but I have a soft spot for Limon. Feels like going home.:)
