Never leave the house without 1) a jacket or 2) the Camera. Lesson learned with the latter last night! It will officially be attached to me for all further outings, especially when venturing to Boulder.
Before checking out the Wednesday Farmer’s Market in downtown Boulder, D wanted to drive up Flagstaff Road and assess his next bike-challenge. I had no idea what that meant, except that I would find out how much I should worry about his safety when he decides to take it on – fun! 😉
Well, friends, I was really in for it. If you are ever in the Boulder area, find Baseline Road and drive North until you hit Chautauqua park, and just keep going (slowly, and watch out for bike riders!). You’re welcome.

We drove and drove and drove until nearing the “top”; there are plenty of places on the side to park and marvel, we chose this one:
I know. We could have stayed up there for hours, aside from hungry stomachs and the fact that I was wearing sandals. Next stop: Food!
We walked up and down the Farmer’s Market, browsing the vendors and comparing to last Saturday’s outing. Since I’ll be traveling this weekend, I just took mental notes of all the fresh things I want to buy.
This can only go on so long before my Pre-Long Run appetite kicked in and my legs demand Local Pale Ales and Pizza…
I tried the “Lazy Dog Amber“, while D went with “Boulder’s Hazed & Confused”.
We sat on the rooftop and enjoyed our brews, our scenery, and our humidity-free afternoon.
Beers sipped and enjoyed, we walked along Pearl St Mall over to BJ’s.
Flatbread Margarita Pizza? Yes, please! Thanks, BJ’s.
I had one last stop in mind…Froyo, obviously.
Maiberry does “Greek Style Frozen Yogurt” – Anne, you and your tart preferences would approve! I ordered the “norm” – Original topped with Oreo (small). D ordered this:
As they started preparing his “Chocolate Decadence”, he realized he may not have read the menu very well and maybe this was going to be a little much. Live & learn, and let your significant other help you with that… 😉
Clearly my glycogen stores are all topped off. After this breakfast of champions (Coffee, oatmeal, 1/2 banana, 1 tbsp PB), I’m off for this week’s Long Run!
