One Mile Up: Colorado Pt 2!

Wednesday: 7.1m easy 9:00/pace

Thursday: 20 min yoga, 1.5m walk

Friday: Rest

This is a freaking cool city. If you’ve never visited, bump it up on the list. Our first day started with one of the best lattes i’ve ever had in my life at Mercantile Dining and Provisions.

We finally had the weather we craved– 80 and sunny for the rest of the trip! Perfect for exploring Denver. We  got to see a lot by using city bikes. We cruised along the river, saw parks, the Broncos stadium and a very active community. Lots of runners, walkers, cyclists & people just out reading books in the warm weather. It made my heart very happy.


And when we got thirsty from the heat and the exhausting ride (insert tons of sarcasm) we stopped for a beer of course! 😉

Joe & me at Denver Beer Co.

The next morning I got myself up early and snuck out for a few morning miles (4 very easy ones to be exact). I wanted more than anything to see the “One Mile Above Sea Level” stairs at the capitol building. As a runner, I felt it was a necessary part of the trip! I got there and the building was beautiful, especially with the sun was just starting to peek out.

James Macpherson is that you?

We explored City Park and then headed to the free Jazz fest that was happening…

Jazz fest was a great place to kill time before heading to the airport to get back to DC.
