Weekly Wrap...October 14




I've had a pretty busy week leading up to my 50 Miler race. You may have seen that I was in several cities this past week and I definitely made the most of it with my crew.


The first day we had a long overnight in Jacksonville.  We decided to do some shopping. Later I went for a short run.


The following day we were in Milwaukee.  The crew wanted to go downtown to see a China lights festival but we did not have a long overnight and a 3am wake up call comes too fast so I opted for a short run instead.  Hopefully I'll get back there to see it before the festival ends. Has anyone ever gone to that? Is it worth seeing?

Even though we had a very early airport report time we only had one flight to Denver and got in at 630am. My other friend was there and we decided to head to Boulder since neither of us have ever been. We walked from our hotel to the train station then rode a bus up to Colorado University. 


We found a trail and did some hiking.  It is quite a workout! It started to thunder but we continued up the mountain (I know probably not the smartest but we came all this way). A little while later it started to rain and we continued to hike further up the mountain when we noticed it began to hail. We then decided we better cut our hike short and go back downtown and do some shopping. 



We were freezing by the time we got down the mountain and needed to warm up in a coffee shop. As soon as we found one of course it cleared up and the sun came back out.  Go figure! We did a little more shopping and found some great deals at a local consignment shop. 

It was a full day. Planes, trains, and automobiles we did that day and I was exhausted! Not to mention being up since 3am. I could not wait to get back to the hotel and crash.  And that is exactly what I did! 

The following day we had a long day of work then I drove home to get ready for my big race weekend! Can't wait to share my experience I had running my first 50 miler! Stay tuned! -L


We are linking up our week with Wendy and Holly!

  4. I noticed that you were in a lot of different cities this week! That must be so exciting, but a little tiring at the same time. I would probably forget what time zone I was in, lol.

    Looking forward to hearing about your race!

  10. You were full of adventures! How fun to have your flight crew accompanying you - it looks like you really take advantage of seeing the cities where you land, which is very cool.

  11. I didn't do any hiking in Boulder, but I do enjoy one of the running trails. If you want a good one, and have time, check out the Bobolink trail just east of town.

  12. Oh wow, that is a lot of travel. Flights just tire me out, especially when you get up so early! I get really off schedule for the day. I can't wait to hear about the 50 miler!

  13. I thinking running (or hiking!) in the cities where you have a lay over is a brilliant way to see the sights. Good luck with your first 50 miler. That is just so impressive. We'll all be excited to hear the details! Thanks for linking!
