Hi everyone. Thanks so much for the Insta-love while I was in Colorado. As a life-long East Coaster, I must admit mountain-living really suits me. There might be less oxygen up but there is an abundance of heart. I walked into a juice/oat shop in Denver (yup, that’s a thing, hi friends at ProsperOats), and as I waited for them to mix up my juice, I joined a conversation that EVERYONE in the shop was having. I left knowing each patrons’ plans for the rest of the day (obviously they were all going to go exercise/be outside/plant something).

Now I’m back in NYC growling at everyone on the subway and walking with my neck craned into my phone’s screen to avoid unsanctioned human interaction.

Here’s what happened last week in the Centennial state.

Ooo hey! I am back in New York after an incredible week in Colorado. One lasting thought I have after spending a week in the mountains is that some people can be in that environment every weekend not just once or twice a year. ( ie: People who live in Denver.) Lucky ducks!

Here’s what I got into fitness-wise!

Every time I worked out last week (3/19-3/27)

Saturday: I skied a full day at Keystone with my friend Katy (you might remember her from every other time I skied and wrote about it on this blog) (Skiing in Steamboat, Colorado;  Skiing in Vermont)

Hello, reader! I missed you! There is so much I want to tell you and I am behind on writing.

You might remember in the early days of this blog when I learned to ride a bike. It was a tough and often frustrating thing to take on as an adult. Two things made it easier. The first was formal lessons. Learning from friends is humbling and embarrassing even with the kindest of teachers. Taking a lesson and being with other adults at my skill level and a teacher accustomed to adult learners was clutch and a confidence builder.

The second thing that helped was practice. This is not groundbreaking.
