Hot List

I’m off to Breckenridge with the ladies. I’ll let you know how the Shot Ski goes. I’m bringing my snow shoes but will more likely be sitting by the fire talking some smack and drinking a cold one.

Yesterday I was excited to learn that an article I wrote, “The 5 Colorado marathons you don’t know about” ended up on Denver’s Hot List!


I got tagged for the Stylish Blogger award a few times, so I’ll leave you with these random things about me:

  1. I hate it when people quote from Monty Python movies. “Bring out yer dead…” and all that. They just don’t know when to stop.
  2. I was almost born with a cleft lip. But, I wasn’t. I guess it formed at the last minute. Lucky me. Or maybe my dad is lying.
  3. I was named after Beth from Little Women.  Too bad there wasn’t a character called “Shutupandrun.”
  4. Last night I danced with the Xbox Kinect to “I Got A Feelin” after too much fondue. I sucked. I have no rhythm. I embarrassed my children.
  5. I was accepted into the Peace Corps twice. Once in Mali and once in Slovakia. I never went.
  6. I threw my pee on someone in seventh grade. I was mad at him. And very mature.
  7. I’ve been swimming in the Dead Sea. It is salty. Like my pee.

I’m tagging the last five people who commented on my last post.

Days Run
Tortuga Runner
Chris K. (but I think he already did it. I’m sure he can come up with more random things like how his leg doesn’t hurt or why he’s jealous of Kovas).
Balls in the Air
Cynthia’s Adventures

Happy weekend,



  1. Have fun in Breck! Missed you by a couple of weeks - we skied there on the 3rd. Love walking through all the shops (but I didn't buy anything).

    Hope you enjoy the shot ski!

  2. That's funny, I was named after Laurie from Little Women. My parent's thought it would be cool to name me after the boy in a book about girls... okay, not really but it would be a lot cooler if they had.

    Hope you have a great weekend.

  3. Hmmmmm, did you change the title of this post? That is not what the title said when I first opened my reader :)

  4. oh goodness, gotta love this humor on a nice saturday morning!

  5. I'd add the Estes Park marathon to that list. I ran it in 2009 and there weren't that many people there. It's a gorgeous run.

  6. Hey, I am one of those Monty Python folks, but I generally only do it when I'm with other Monty Python folks, so I'm only annoying in a crowd. Usually. Except when I'm felling like... a LUMBERJACK! Because I'm a lumberjack and I'm okay... Sorry - couldn't resist!

  7. Have a fab ladies' weekend! I love that you were named after Little Women :>

  8. "I was mad at HIM". Hahaha! I was expecting more of a bitchy cat fight to come from that story.

  9. hope you're having a blast in breckenridge! that rocks!

    and congrats on your article! now...that's super fun;-)

  10. 100% agreement with #1!

    It drives me nuts

  11. I was just out there and it was gorgeous! Enjoy the weekend and good luck on the shot ski!

  12. What kind of shot involves drinking your own pee or the Red Sea? This was a confusing post. Bring me a bucket, I'm going to be sick!

  13. I want to apply to the PC but .... life is so in the way.

  14. "I'm not dead yet".....sorry. Have fun in Breckenridge...jealous.

  15. My hubby and I are thinking about doing Estes Park in June. What's your take on it?

  16. 1- You think Monty Python is bad, wait till the Princess Bride comes up.
    2- Parents always like. Where do you think we get politicians from?
    3- Could always change your name.
    4- Parents just breathing embarrasses their children. Near as I can tell, being a child free adult, it's what parents live for.
    5- Are you bragging or complaining?
    6- At least you used a paper cup, or balloon, and not direct from the source.
    7- I don't want to know.

  17. hahah shot ski's are hilarious!! I can't wait to hear all about your adventure with it!

  18. My kids aren't old enough to be embarrassed by me yet... but I've had good practice on my stepkids for years!

    Have fun with the ladies :)

  19. Fine, I'll do my 7 things again, this time completely devoid of sarcasm. Wait, I don't know how to do that. Can I write 7 things I don't like about Kovas instead?

  20. Hope your ladies weekend was fun!!!!

  21. You swam in the dead sea?!?! Can your life get any cooler? Hope you are having an amazing weekend and you totally remind me of Beth from Little Women ha!

  22. You love that pee story, eh? ;) Maybe you just love talking about urine in general. Have a good time on your trip!

  23. You would be proud... I took my first crap while running yesterday. Is it weird that I thought of you after? haha Have a fun trip!

  24. You threw your pee on someone! Ahahah. That is great. :)

    I hate when people quote things and I have no idea what they are talking about so I laugh as though I do. It's awkward.

  25. Leave it to a woman to dis Monty Python.

    She's a witch!
    How do you know she's a witch?
    She turned me into a newt!
    A newt?
    Well, I got better...
