That Achey Leg Feeling

Know what feels good? Going out for a long, hard ride on the bike and coming home completely wrecked. It makes you forget about the world we’re in these days, even with the constant reminders of people wearing face masks and towns looking deserted. If you push yourself hard enough, you feel completely present inContinue reading “That Achey Leg Feeling”

Saying Goodbye Is Never Easy

Ben and I said goodbye to our sweet, loyal and old pup Moonli at 4:30pm yesterday. He lived 14.5 full years and we’re so thankful for the time we got to share with him. Things were getting pretty bad at the end – his cleft pallet membrane had a puncture and he was obsessively eatingContinue reading “Saying Goodbye Is Never Easy”

That’s my kind of birthday! Back to the count…. 2,966 cases, 509 hospitalized, 50 counties, 16,849Continue reading “Quick Update”

Quarantine Birthdays

Kindness comes in many forms. I ordered some flour from our local bakery (Moxie Bread Co in Louisville, CO) and mentioned I was making a cake for my birthday (3/31). When I picked up the order today, they gifted me a chopping board and a free pastry. How thoughtful! On my ride home, I sawContinue reading “Quarantine Birthdays”

Denver is the hardest hit, yet other counties have a higher death rate. I find that checking these numbers each night keeps me in check and not getting lazy or slack offContinue reading “Counting COVID in Colorado”
