This week was probably one of my most favorite!
Monday- I woke up and headed to the local bouldering cave in Estes for a 730am session. National Public Radio was my only choice of sound, aside from silence of the morning. At 9 am I headed to the High School track, meeting Maren Bosely and Karla Dubois for a quick sprint work-out. Afterwards, Maren and I both headed to work at Ed's at 10.
After work I returned to KMAC to find my boys testing a zip line that Wes had put up. I watched them on the innagural run as I finished my slideshow for the following evening in a camp chair. The Dubois had invited Wes and I to dinner, so zip line activities ended quickly and he, I, and our friend Matt headed over for some homemade Naan and Jerk Chicken Sandwiches. Delicious!

ApTuesday- I returned to Karla's house for a 6:30 am egg sandwich. After a quick bite, we headed up to the Glacier Gorge Parking lot, in Rocky Mountain National Park. Our destination was Arrowhead Peak. Niether of us had stood on the summit yet of this fantastic little peak that lies off of the Contintental Divide. We danced on the summit about 3 hours from the car and we were back home in time to shower and present a slideshow. At 630 pm, I arrived at Ed's Cantina, Jes and I gave a little run-down on our Nose in a Day Women's Speed Record. A great turn-out with a fantastic crowd. Thank you to all who came!!!

I had plans to meet another Ed's employee at Suzuki boulder after the race and Bronson and Maren decided to join. We warmed up quickly, having only an hour or so before we all had to be to work. I climbed my 'project' and almost sent it first try. I did it with some funky, unfamiliar beta but it felt pretty good so I decided to give it another rip. Second try fell. Third try send, I think its a V5! Thanks Bronson for inspiring me after all these years!
