So we headed off to Colorado for some fun in the snow on our holiday. Honestly I have been missing snow just a bit since leaving Ohio 10 years ago and decided it was time to see it again. On this trip I was going to try something new and ski. I had never tried to ski before in my life, and I was certain I would break a leg or hit a tree. But now that I am safely at home I can say I am all in one piece, or as close as I was before going.
During the week we went skiing downhill 3 times (once at night), nordic (cross country) skiing once, tubing once, and snow shoeing twice. Phew, that sounds like a very busy week. Actually it didn’t seem that busy at the time. I really enjoyed every new adventure, and am already looking forward to the next trip for more skiing even though I am not a fan of cold weather. Fortunately we stayed so active I did not even notice the cold weather until it was time to return home.
Also on this trip I had the pleasure of meeting Jill Parker in person, and found her to be every bit as fun and genuine as she is on her blog. Jill and I met on the Loop at Runer’s World when we were both writing there. She came to Frisco with her son for a few hours of snowshoeing followed by lunch.

Very cool! Just read her recap over on the blog. Awesome you guys were able to hook up.
Wow–you made the most of your time there! And Jill is meeting the entire blog world these days…glad you got to meet her.
YAY Colorado! I’m so glad it worked out to meet you and your family – and glad you had a great time while here. I’m still thinking you need buy a place up in the mountains and I’ll make sure it’s safe and sound while you are away until you get back to use it :).
I met Jill earlier this month too! She’s so cool. And, a great Coach may I add.
