I really can't begin to emphasize how much I love Boulder. I (surprisingly) enjoyed the Boulder winter (it really was quite mild) -- but we've now begun what I love the most. It's hard for me to think of a place I love more than Boulder in the summer. No humidity, the crisp air, the electric blue sky, the breathtaking mountains in the backdrop of everything you do .... and happy people all around you who enjoy where they live as much as you do.
Since Rev3, everything has gone full throttle.
I got back to Boulder the day before my good friends, Billy Edwards and Lara Cooper, finally tied the knot. Billy and Lara prepped this wedding well, complete with a shuttle to take us all to and from the wedding to post-wedding reception.
En route to the wedding, me with Michael Stone, Pete Valentyik and Matty Reed.
Kelly Reed and I sharing a photo op as we shmooshed Brad Seng beneath us.
Did I have the best looking date, or what? My training partner, Brandon, cleans up well (and doesn't smell - as JZ says!)...
The hottie men of Boulder... Brando, Denny Meeker and Mat Steinmetz
And... Boulder's own 2livecrew - JZ and Brando
Lara was a beautiful bride, and it was fun watching her being lifted and carried around the crowd..
A few days later, Brandon gets a huge blister on his heel....
He ignored it as long as he could, until one night, his body in a 103 fever with wretching vomit, he checked into the emergency room...
Poor guy in the hospital for 3 days with a STAPH INFECTION!!!!
A few days ago I ran the famous Magnolia Road with a much better Brandon, and his from Uli, who is visiting from NYC. Brandon takes off his shirt whenever possible. :) But hey, if you looked like that, wouldn't you??
Can't help but give my training partner a little smooch. YUCK - all I tasted on his cheek was salt!
And after the run, Uli, Brandon and I headed to soak in the Boulder Creek. It gets much more warm in August... in June... Bbbbrrrrrrr - it is COLD!! :)
Later that day, JZ invites me down to her house for a little chat. As I'm leaving, she looks outside to notice my car in her driveway. Bear in mind, I live .32 mile from her. I drove to her house??? She looked at me, shook her head and just said with a sarcastic smile, "You loser!"
