Hello from Boulder, Colorado!
It’s too bad it’s so ugly here.
I know. It’s okay to hate me. We went on an amazing hike this morning — more on that in a second!
As you guys know, I’m here for the Fitness & Health Blogger’s Conference this weekend! Attune Foods is sponsoring my attendance — a big thank you to them for sending me out here! If you’re here this weekend, please come find me for free Attune Foods product coupons and probiotic chocolate bars. This is what I look like today
Anyway! I arrived in Denver around 5:30 last night. First stop? Dinner with my girl Heather!
Heather and I both used to live in D.C. at the same time and became running buddies. She lives out here in Denver now and I miss her!
She picked me up at the airport and invited me to have dinner at her place last night. Yay On the menu? Black Bean Enchiladas! Stuffed with spinach, mushrooms, onions, and a spicy green chili sauce.
SO good! Totally easy, too. I need to recreate these at home
Topped with tomatoes and salsa. Definitely went back for seconds!
Thanks again for feeding me and carting me around, Heather
I crashed hard last night — I needed to get a good night’s rest because the conference officially kicked off this morning here in Boulder with a beautiful hike with Fit Health Into Life!
Seriously… why don’t I live in Colorado?! It’s so awesome here.
We had a small group for the hike (about 8 or 9 of us) since many of the bloggers weren’t in town until later this morning. It was a nice opportunity to get to know some new friends before the real conference starts! They took us hiking right in Boulder at a place called Chautauqua.
I want this place to be in my backyard.
The hike started at 8 a.m. and we had AMAZING weather — high 70s and super sunny, and no humidity of course.
We hiked for about 2.5 hours — most of it straight uphill or downhill! It was tough, especially given the altitude (I was totally gasping for breath when I shouldn’t have been, ha).
After some serious huffing and puffing, we were rewarded with amazing views!
What a great way to start the day, huh?
Here I am with my new friend Katie, who I hiked with most of the way and had a great time getting to know — she lives here in Boulder — so jealous!
And with my roomie for the weekend, Theodora!
Tina was supposed to be our third roomie, but she’s sick and couldn’t come We miss you, Tina!
Hamming it up:
Thanks for an amazing morning, Fit Health Into Life!
Hope you guys are having a great Friday — I’ll be later with more conference fun!
