Pondering changing up my blog a pics, layout...all of it:). Brooks' new layout gave me inspiration. I feel a change a'comin.

Until then...a fun pic of the Burrito (Rowen) I took at the Garden 10 Mile race. She's in the tree at Memorial Park in Manitou.

bye Heather! :(

Pics from Heather's last girls night here in CO:(. Trinity was the best and we were happy to introduce her to the glorious sweet potato fries! Heather and I are totally sporting the post-yoga sweat-fest-look. Well, maybe I just am. I'd say we look pretty cute given we were dripping at CorePower, thanks to Lora, right before this!

Hugs to you dear Heather...thanks for the time! Safe travels back to Nashville!


My mom sent me this awesome picture of some of the Keaveny' it! My dad is in the red printed shirt, my mom in the blue swim suit top. My brother Adam is standing wrapped up in a towel, the smaller of the two...and then there's me standing beside him. I'm taking a shot in the dark, thinking this is around 1990-ish? :)

This weekend provided me with exactly what I needed... wandering in mountains and a chance to breathe.

It all started Sunday morning when Heather, Dani, Jess and I hike Mount Esther and the Garden of Eden up in Green Mountain Falls. I haven't "hiked", without the intent of running in I don't know how long. It was absolutely heaven to take in every sight, sound, smell, breeze the day had to offer without fighting to catch my breath and wondering how fast I was going. We had lots of great conversations and many laughs. We so enjoyed having Heather around and getting to know her. She has one more week here and then she and CD are back to Nashville. :( 3 and a half hours later we arrived back at Dani's house. Tired and sunburned, but in a different non-running-early-Sunday morning kind of way. A few glasses of water and then it was up to Woodland park for some Mexican food at Fiesta Mexicana! One (not small) margarita made us all ready for the deserved afternoon nap!

No true nap for me Sunday afternoon. I showered, packed and Chelsea and I ventured up to Florissant for an overnight tent camp! After setting up our tent (on our own, and a very well done job I might add), we headed back down to the local bar: The Thunderbird Inn...which is in fact not truly and Inn, but an establishment with a women's bathroom with no doors on the stall, but a clear view of the other restroom visitor through the sink mirror- classic. My second visit to the restroom this evening, I scared a woman half to death and basically made her fall into the toilet, bracing herself as best she could using the stall walls- nice Jillian. A few missing teeth and bar tricks by married men had run it's course and we were off to the campsite for yummy s'mores and a fire.

After sleeping in until 9:30am, and grabbing some coffee in town...Chelsea and I packed up our tent and drove up a little further on Hwy 24 and found a great dirt road by the river, perfect for a run before heading home. It was the perfect temperature out, clouds and no sun. We soaked in the unfamiliar scenery and 40 minutes just flew by.

A lunch stop at Joannies in Woodland Park filled our bellies and home was not too far from there. What an amazing time...loved every minute of it. Thanks friends, for making this weekend so fulfilling, and such a change of pace.

New at Trinzo...

Something new we're involved with..should be a fun time! Great for us westside/downtowners!

Best of luck to Brooks, JT and Tony at this weekend's Leadville 100!

JT- what is the prospect # of beers you will consume during the actual 100 miles? If I was there, I would definitely drop the camera and throw a margarita at you...wait, maybe on you just to make you sticky and miserable. :)

PPA/PPM weekend!

What a great day...watching the start and finish of the Pikes Peak Marathon! It was pretty amazing having the opportunity to cheer on 1st place male and female, and many friends who have been training for this day for months. We positioned ourselves along the wall in front of the Miramont Castle and had a perfect view of the runners coming around the corner on Ruxton Ave. Jessica finished so strong...and honestly we were very thrilled to see no blood or dirt anywhere but her shoes, since it seemed 8 out of 10 runners that ran past us had fallen at some point during the race. Sunburned, tired and hungry, Dani and I stopped at the Spice of Life for a much needed sandwich-yummo!

A couple hours later, I was off to meet Heather (yes, of the famous 'Heather Eats Almond Butter') at my favorite, Core Power Yoga studio, for some flowing time! Monika was outstanding as usual...thank you! After the sweat session, we joined CD, John, Cindy, Mary Claire, Jonathan, and the Burrito at The Loop! Heather and CD are as real as them come...I really look forward to more time with them while they are here!
