The last few weeks have been a little bit of an emotional roller coaster.
Some good stuff: hearing news about awesome people moving to CO, my dad and Joey the dog coming to visit for a few days, my high school BF Lauren coming to visit, a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert, and going [...]
There was a period of time just a few years ago where every summer was crammed with weddings. To be honest, they became less meaningful over time and influenced my own decision to elope. The last two summers have been different. The number of weddings have decreased as I get closer to 30 and the [...]
When we decided to move to Denver, one of the biggest adjustments would be living thousands of miles away from family. My parents, Neil’s parents, and Neil’s brothers all live(d) in the DC area. His two youngest brothers just left for college. My brother and wife also lived in DC in years past, but moved [...]
I had some blog posts written, never got around to posting them and now they are completely out of date. Like many of you, I work a 9-5 sitting at a computer and it’s hard for me to motivate myself to get on the computer when I get home. (I also can no longer read [...]
I had a really good visit in DC. I have to admit though, after 9 days I was ready to get back to my dog, my own house, and humidity-free-mosquito-free living.
I was back in DC because my friend Lauren got married on July 14th. Lauren isn’t any old friend. We’ve been best friends since [...]
You all know I’m happy here in Denver. That doesn’t mean the move didn’t come without any pain.
I grew up in the suburbs of DC, went to college in upstate New York, and then lived in DC for 5.5 years. I recently realized that this is the longest I’ve ever been away from [...]
I’m coming off of another great Denver weekend. This one was made great by having our first visitors – my mom and dad.
When my mom found out I was moving to Denver, she pretty much bought plane tickets immediately. I’m close to both of my parents, so I’m happy they were able to make [...]
High workout: A 22 mile bike ride with my brother Kevin and my dad on Friday. As you all know, my dad is a bike fanatic and my brother has officially been sworn into the cult after moving to San Francisco. We spent a lot of the ride catching up and it was fun.
(Don’t forget to enter my re-name the blog contest!)
In the last few weeks I have been working out less than usual. On the one hand, it looks like my next training cycle will start in the beginning of February, so I really should enjoy this downtime.
And I have certainly been enjoying it. [...]
As I mentioned in my previous posts, I’ve been very busy the last few weeks. The result: two long (10 mile) runs and no other runs since Thanksgiving in preparation for this half marathon.
On top of all the other things going on right now, my grandpa passed away last weekend. He was 92, [...]
