The weather in Aspen has been absolutely amazing, rendering it completely impossible to imagine working out anywhere but outside in Nature’s Garage Gym. This time, though, I took to Hunter Creek Trail for a trail run with strength workout mixed in and it was AWESOME. Running up the trail, dodging rocks, boulders, sticks, a little [...]
It’s only mid-March, but Aspen is experiencing an early spring, so it’s back to Nature’s Garage Gym for me! I was NOT feeling working out today, with an intense sunburn from Miami, but I did it anyway (it was the Hap for the day, and how can I not do that?) I ran down the Rio [...]

SATURDAY: 8am–4pm Base Camp [...]
I walked to three parks in Aspen today looking for a good “fireman’s pole” on a playground to use as my rope for the rope climbs in today’s .com workout. Alas, I was stymied at every single one, so it was down to the bridge and I was resigned to sub something for rope climbs [...]

In other words, 35 trailers in one place (Auditorium Shores) with $3 sample plates (steal!) in an all-out battle for culinary supremacy. Perhaps best of all, the eats will be arranged geographically throughout the park, so if you forget where to find something you found you loved at this event, you can just figure out [...]
It was short and sweet while it lasted. Snow sprints? Ice power cleans? Powder pushups? … sucking it up and getting back into Bleeker Street Gym?
