We’re leaving for the Mile-High City, Denver, for a jam-packed sports weekend!
Kelly’s favourite NFL team is the Denver Broncos, and we wanted to watch them on a weekend we could still catch a couple of Rockies baseball games. This was the only weekend, and it turns out the RnR Denver is also in town!
I had my eye on the race for a while, but we wanted to see how our bodies felt post-Ironman. Last weekend we ran just under 10 miles and felt ok, so we signed up for the half marathon.
I haven’t been running too much so am not in any shape to run hard. I don’t plan on the racing the race, and Kelly said he’ll stick with me instead of running ahead. (I love running races together!) And, I haven’t ran a half marathon since April of 2010, so it’ll be good to run another.
After taking a 19-month hiatus from racing between the Disney Marathon and before IM Canada, it feels great to get another one under my belt so soon!
Also, I adore Denver. I haven’t been there since ’09 when we watched the Thanksgiving Broncos vs. Giants.
Flashback: my first trip was in ’07. Despite getting really sick, I had a blast!
I can’t wait to catch a few games and enjoy touring the city on foot early Saturday morning.
What are your weekend plans? Are you a football or baseball fan?
