Fueling in Boulder

Good morning! It’s LR time; my lungs are in deep concentration, my stomach is filling up on whole-wheat waffles & peanut butter, and my legs are itching to go.

Last night, we all fueled properly by taking it easy in Boulder and enjoying the scenery, rather than climbing around in it (which will be saved for this weekened). While D went for a bike ride, I waited outside a coffee shop with my book & the mountains:

Yes, this book is interesting and engaging. I’m about halfway through and so far, so good!

Once he returned, we stopped at Boulder Running Company and Bicycle Village – yes, that’s how we spend our spare time – before meeting up with Heather!

Venues of exploration: 29th St Mall & Laudisio’s

I spy fields that will be explored! Love this view.

My fuel: Local Brewed “Twisted Amber” Ale & 1/2 Margarita Pizza (shared with D). This recipe has yet to fail me, and this pizza was delicious and fresh:

We had a great time with Heather & her hubby, Nate! Thanks for the fun restaurant suggestion, we’ll need a date again soon šŸ˜‰

*****

Coffee, Water & Waffles in. It’s time to run…

I’ll be back later with a recap, fingers crossed!
