What a beautiful twilight over #LakeLoveland for our return trip home to #lovelandcolorado. Very festive for #SweetheartCity! #visitloveland @visitlovelandco While the Cotton Bowl is for college football and this was taken after we ran a 15K race in Big D (aka this photo really has nothing to do with football at all, let alone the Super Bowl), this is about as "football fan" as I get. 😜 Since the letters are kinda orange/football themed (I also just realized the sign I'm standing in front of is blue) and we do now live in Colorado, consider this my obligatory #GoBroncos moment of the day. πŸ’™πŸ΄πŸ‰πŸ†πŸ’™ While this technically has nothing to do with the tiny house itself, I'm still sharing it because I'm proud as hell of myself for running the @hotchocolate15k two years in a row! πŸŽ½πŸƒπŸ»πŸπŸ…After building our own tiny house, almost anything seems possible! ☺️ In fact, I would love to run this race all over the country as we travel with our #tinyhouse! I don't think I could get them all, but how awesome would it be to say you've run all the Hot Chocolate races there are?! 😝
In 2015 we were knee deep in the tiny house build, but I had made a promise after my mom died in 2013 that I would start taking better care of myself for once. The 2015 15K was the longest run I had ever done in my life... until I followed it up with the Cowtown Half Marathon a month later! πŸ‘πŸ»
This year's 15K is just as big of an accomplishment for a totally different reason: it was my first race and the longest distance I've run since breaking my foot 5/28/15. The first couple miles were rough, but then everything fell into place after the first 5k. Mile 7 beat me up for some reason, but once I passed that 8 mile marker I knew I could do it. I will likely feel every. single. mile. all over again tomorrow, but it was worth it. πŸ’™πŸ’šπŸ’œ
#running #run #hotchocolate15k #15k #9point3 #nomoxq #hc15k Brand just sent me this picnic table update. I'm guessing 22" - what do you think?! β„οΈβ˜ƒβ„οΈ #tinyhouse #tinyhouseinwinter #letitsnow #colorado The only reason you can see the front of the truck is because I had the engine block heater plugged in. Otherwise it would have looked like the clearance lights up top - drowned in snow. πŸŒ¨β˜ƒβ„οΈ Umm, didn't we have #tinyhouse stairs around here somewhere? πŸŒ¨β˜ƒβ„οΈ #tinyhouseinwinter #colorado
