North Face Endurance Challenge WI starting line

Misty morning

This is a photo from the starting line of the North Face Endurance Challenge WI, which was back in September. I guess this qualifies as a #tbt. It was a gorgeous day! I never did a race report for this half marathon, but it was fun and the weather was perfect. The End.

Mountain climbing: Rosalie Peak

While we were in Colorado we attempted to climb a mountain by taking Tanglewood Trail towards Rosalie Peak. We lost the trail about 2.5 miles up and while we had many GPS gadgets, we didn’t have a map. So we turned around at 10,841′ because I was not about to have a Blair Witch Project […]

Denver Botanic Gardens: Chihuly Exhibit

We had an awesome afternoon at the Denver Botanic Gardens where the Dale Chihuly Exhibit is going on until November. We really wanted to see this exhibit towards sunset, but our vacation this week didn’t plan for the gardens to be closed at 3 pm two days for concerts. Therefore, we had to squeeze this […]

Family hike day

Yesterday we went for a hike on the Kohl Park Hiking Trail. My husband’s hiking guide said it was a lollipop trail. We came to a fork in the trail and took it right, but ¬†pretty soon we ended up off the trail and in people’s backyards. Tried as we might, we couldn’t get that […]

Just keep swimming

I think my right shoulder is jammed and I’m hoping to get to the chiropractor today to fix it. I’m currently under a blanket of cats, and need more coffee, but that would involve moving the cats. The movie tonight is Young Frankenstein, which I’ve never watched. I know, I know!! I’ve got four books […]

Goofing off

Sometimes we goof off so much

  Sometimes we goof off so much that we forget where we parked the car. Normally we time our arrival to Miller Park so carefully that we end up in either the tiny parking lot or (our favorite) on the side of the road that wraps around the parking lot. This time, we were in […]
