Rockin’ with Sony & the Mile-High City

I’ll cut to the chase: I have two big announcements today!

This Wednesday dosed me with the anxiety/I’m-way-too-excited energy that makes it hard to sit through an office day.  We’re leaving for New Mexico tomorrow morning (no, that’s not one of the announcemnets)! Translate that to “this is my Friday” ! I used up some of that energy on a 19-mile bike ride this morning with D & Kate.  Now, I’m chugging through the afternoon powered by Starbucks and their double-brewed (did you know that?) Iced Coffee because it is also that day where if you have a hot drink in your hand, you are undoubtedly insane.

We’re only escaping this DC heat to enter the desert, but believe you me, that dry Western air cannot surround me soon enough!

In fact, that brings me to Announcement #1…

We’re moving to Denver on July 31st!

Without going into every contemplative, over-analyzed, repetitively-calculated detail regarding this relocation, just know that my New Mexican roots have become increasingly anxious to return to the West. I can’t wait to be surrounded by the Rockies, hiking/biking/running trails, and ski resorts (nothing compares to that Colorado snow). If you’re in the area and want to join me for a ride, run, hike or food party (or all of the above!), let me know. 🙂

Yes, there are some things (friends, monuments, running groups, self-serve frozen yogurt joints!)  about DC that I will miss. A LOT. You know who you are. And Lincoln, please come with me so I can still run around you, and up your steps, and watch the sunrise over the top of your Greek Doric columns! Please? Alright fine, I’ll come back to visit you.


With my new “home” on the mind, I picked the Denver Rock ‘n Roll Marathon as my goal race for the Fall. I’ll be out there in plenty of time to readjust to the high altitude, and there is no better way to learn some new city streets than by running them.

So, with that being said, I bring you Announcement #2…

I’ve teamed up with SONY, running the Denver RnR as their “Sponsored Blogger” (see badge to the right)!

You’ll hear more about this soon; just know you’ll eventually be seeing some V-Logs (ah!) from me and my training-gear. I’m going to ask in advance that all refrain from critiquing my gait, stride and/or I’ve-been-running-for-10+ miles glamour shots. Thanks. 🙂

    Congrats on the both announcements! I’m sad you are leaving but it sounds like it is definitely the right decision for you.

  3. Holy moly! I can’t believe it!!! I’m jealous. Denver is one of those places I’ve wanted to move to for a long time. Awesome. Can’t wait to hear more. I guess this means official cohabitation with D and a new job?!

  4. Wow — that’s soon!

    Let me know if you’ll have a blogger/tweeter good-bye meet-up, maybe I can take a little trip to meet you in person before you go!

    Or I could come run with you on a weekend, but it’d be more like I’d be running several minutes behind you 🙂

  5. So excited for you! The West is where it’s at 😉 And that’s so cool you’re going to be a sponsored blogger! Can’t wait to hear more about it and follow you through your big move!!

  13. Congrats, congrats, congrats! I’m glad to know I’ll have a runner-friend for holiday visits to my in-laws—and that I’ll get to experience your Denver training vicariously!

  14. Sounds amazing. You will totally have to check out Steamboat Colorado. They have the best snow and I am always out there for four weeks each winter for skiing and family fun. Maybe I will get a chance to actually meet a blogger sometime!! 🙂

    Too funny. I made the move from DC to Colorado 5 years ago. I love Colorado. It’s soooooo different. I hope you love Denver!! Less-humid Colorado leads to easier runs eventually 🙂 But the altitude may kick your butt for a couple weeks.
