Running in Denver.


Who…. in the world… thought… I should… start…. doing that?  <wheeze wheeze>


Holy moley!  Trying to get back in shape after two years of non-shape graduate schooling seems like it’s going to be harder than ever here!  While I have been riding my new bike around for a few days now (pictures below!)… going for my first 1 mile jog today really hurt!  

Now… I’ll be the first to admit that my breathing is always what stops me from running, especially the first 2 weeks of a renewed work out.  I start wheezing, my chest burns with a vigor I didn’t know existed, and I made more saliva than Pavlov’s dog… but today was brutal!  I’m not sure if it is because the air is thinner, or because I am just so out of shape, but I was impressed with how little I could really jog!  Looks like I’m just going to have to get back on the horse/pavement tomorrow and keep trying!  




Late Night -Staying Wild Sunday













Yowza… where does the time go between posts.

Much like my sleep schedule, my posting has been inconsistent, either quite short or quite long, and most of all at the wrong time of day!

Anyway… this weekend was spent madly crafting!

Here are some pictures!

As you can see from the last picture… not everyone made it out of the crafting weekend awake.  😉

Not sure when my next post will be.  I have a second interview tomorrow that will take most of my day… but hopefully on Thursday I can update you on all the current haps!

Look forward to this Sunday too… since I have two Staying Wild Sundays to catch up on!


Hold onto your nice, probably well-knit socks everyone… the Pumpkin Games of 2012.


Gearing Up and Chowing Down at Civic Center Eats Outdoor Cafe


So if the Taste of Colorado festival was for the Big Z’s taste buds… then Civic Center Eats Outdoor Cafe is definitely my new friend!  This tasty event features a ton of beautiful food trucks!  And when I say beautiful I mean it!  The food truck scene in Philadelphia is great, but the trucks can seem pretty run down and sketchy to eat from at times.  These trucks were top notch though… a lot of great TLC has gone into creating a welcoming truck food environment!

So CCE is every Tuesday and Thursday from 11-2 at the corner of Broadway and 14th (sound familiar?)!  Well last Thursday the weather was fantastic so I made the trip down to the Civic Center Park (and let’s face it… it’s still early… so I might head back down there again today!).  It was a great walk and I was surprised to get some great pictures on the way!
