-March began with the conclusion of a road trip from New Jersey to Colorado and a run in Frisco with Lyndsey.

-March brought me 2 new running friends

-I realized that running at altitude has its challenges

-March took me up mountains and hills

-March lead me to more trails than I’ve ever run before

-March brought me a hydration pack, a flip belt, a new pair of Altra King MT trail shoes, my Altra Ambassador gear kit, new SOLE ATHLETICA lace tags, and my Boston Marathon Runner PassportIMG_7773.JPG

(you can read about why I love Sole Athletica lace tags here)

-In March I charged my Garmin so often that it didn’t shut off during a run once, and I plugged it into the computer!


-The cats got some new toys in the mail from our friend Lauren and her 2 adorable black cats

-Ninja saw a mountain

-Both cats spent time in the windows and by the front door trying to catch glimpses of the pretty neighbor cat

-I saw a few cats while running and 2 cats while hiking with Phil

-My cats were pleased we received a few packages so they had boxes to play in

-Junior played Catopoly with us


-I discovered a bakery a few blocks from my house that has amazing Hawaiian Hazelnut coffee

-I have been attempting to make froth designs in my coffee

  1. I’m glad you are loving Colorado but I still miss you a lot! I’m looking forward to hanging out this month. I cannot imagine the adjustment to running at altitude!
