Now that the AC half is over for 2015 and I’ve recovered from the gruesome death of a flu that I caught on my way home from New England, I can look ahead to the next fun, fitness-y related things on the horizon. In other words, we here at Scoot a Doot have NEWS, people. And news is always fun, yes? Yes!
A few weeks back, we got an email from the sweet folks over at the BolderBOULDER asking if we wanted to blog about our race experience this year. Seeing as this is my hometown race and we’re almost the same age, (this is the 37th year of the race), there was no question I’d be running it. Blogging about it ‘officially’ was just icing!
The absolute best part of this event is the fact the Meridith is coming to run it with me. She’s never been to Colorado before, and when she saw this, she had questions.
Mainly, “will I die?” Secondly, “we’re sticking together for this one, right?”
After much reassurance that she won’t pass out from the altitude, I promised her that the map was deceiving and the course wasn’t that bad. Then we talked about costumes because of course we were sticking together and we need to look cute doing it.
The other best thing about this year’s event is that the BolderBOULDER is sending over some nifty stuff from Skechers Performance, TomTom, and Helly Hansen for me to try out and tell you guys about. Here’s a sneak peak!
Then, as if that wasn’t awesome enough, I found out that in June I’ll be volunteering at Fitbloggin2015. We are super excited about this as I’ll get an opportunity to meet amazing and inspiring fellow bloggers as well as learn more about many topics driving and inspiring the fitness community now. Topics that I can learn about and come back and share with you all. Because sharing is good. And making new friends is the best! Plus, it’s in Denver this year, so I can go to the conference and still sleep in my bed. That’s my cake and I’m eating it. Check out the topics and let’s talk about what speaks to you.
So stay tuned because Scootadoot news never stops. Or something.
Super duper excited for BolderBoulder doesn’t nearly cover just how excited I am for this race! Do you remember when you blogged about it for us last year and I was like “I WANT TO RUN THIS RACE WITH YOU” and now, here we are a year later and I’m actually going to run this race with you. I do love when things go according to plan.
I wish I could join you (or just stay really) for Fitbloggin’ but I have this strange feeling my family would be sad and miss me, minimally at least. But I’m really looking forward to hearing all the good stuff that comes from that. I know it’s going to be a blast for you! xo
Also, COSTUMES. I think we should just always be in costume when we are together.
I DO remember when you said that last year and I never thought it would be happening so SOON!You are going to love this race. Aside form the hills, that is.
When you get here you may never want to leave. and then you’ll move here. My prediction. Then, we can always be in costume, or at least, always having fun. <3
