Marmot taking stock before the Pikes Peak Ascent

With only a few days until the Pikes Peak Ascent and Marathon (and the final leg of this year's Triple Crown of Running), I'm psyched. 

Being selected as a…

Marmot On Cloud 9

It’s been just over a week since I finished my huge goal of 2018, the one that pushed me out of bed at 4:15am so I could be on the trails 2 hours before work.  The one that scared me into chasing my friends in the Sunrise Striders training group up steep hill repeats, gasping for breath but refusing to let everyone get away.  The one that made me give up my nightly wine and…

Countdown to Pikes Peak Ascent

Onlt 6 days away from the final leg of the Triple Crown, the Pikes Peak Ascent!

Though this year I sort of ended up doing this in a whim, I have no regrets after entering the Ascent one night after that extra glass of wine I indulged myself with while i gazed up at that mountain.…

We started our sight seeing by visiting Fort Garland Museum with friends Donna and Daryl, who also share a passion for sight seeing and are…

Deep Thoughts from the Braided Marmot

Deep thoughts from the braided - back of the pack marmot. To sacrifice your race or not, that is the question.

I knew going into the half marathon Summer Roundup at Cheyenne Mountain State Park on July 8th I would be cutting the 3 ½ hour cut off very…

Trails to hike and run in Blackhawk, Colorado

My recently retired husband and I enjoyed a 2 night midweek escape in Blackhawk, Colorado this past week, which gave me a chance to start focusing on some altitude training for the third and final leg of the Tiple Crown of Running.

In addition to enjoying the dining, socialing, swimming and a little gambling(we…

Bruised But Not Broken, Often Gasping Marmot

Last we caught up a few weeks ago, I was whining about the smoke messing up my PR attempt at Leadville Marathon… What has this marmot been up to since then? Well the mountains kept calling to me, so the weekend after Leadville I headed a bit further south for the race with the most eye-candy-per- mile, the San Juan Solstice. 50miles up and down some mountains, playing along the Continental Divide for hours, what more could I ask for?!…

New Summer Roundup Race Adventures

 The second leg of the Triple Crown of Running was the inaugural running of the Summer  Roundup Half Marathon in Cheyenne State Park.

In the past, the second leg has always been the shortest race of the three, and the only one that varies, but lengthening this race to a half marathon on rugged terrain , despite my inner whining , made sense on many levels. Many runners where in pursuit of the 3:30:00 cutoff to prove their…

Summer Roundup!

I'd like to be able to write an inspiring blog post about being super disciplined about training, despite life throwing out everything it has at me to keep me from my runs. I'd like to brag about how lack of sleep, physical exhaustion, and lack of time simply made me even more determined to get out there and get it done. I'd like to tell you that nothing is more important to me than sticking to my training plan and nothing comes between me and my running!

Sadly, I am not that person,…

Easy Logistics on Pikes Peak

Summer is the busiest time for sure in my chosen profession !

That is why having Pikes Peak in my backyard is such a luxury for me since life/work balance is the most challenging this time of year.

Monday, with a rare morning off from work, I made a rather spontaneous choice to ascend the Pikes Peak,arriving at the first shuttle of the day at 6 am (and a nice visit with my friends Daryl and Donna) to start off the Ascent with a trip up the incline steps. 

As I…
