I went from mom of toddlers with very little spare time to mom of grade schoolers with much more free time. I moved from the bay area of northern California to the foothills of the rocky mountains in Colorado. I've gone from road marathons to trail half marathons as I acclimate to the higher altitude and steeper terrain.
The running community in Boulder valley is widespread for sure but more low key than the bay area, not surprisingly. Instead of pushing my kids in a stroller, they are now running alongside, ahead and behind me on the trails. Now I rarely think about my running pace as much as which trails I get to explore next.
Life if good, running keeps me happy and I am soon to be a proud ambassador to Fleet Feet Running Store located in Boulder, CO. Stay posted!
