On the weekend of July 27th and 28th, Liz, Aaron, and I rowed Dragon Boats. Aaron was on a team from his work, and Liz and I were on the OCA team that she participated in last year. She and I practiced exactly twice before the race, and in some senses, it definitely showed. We got to see some folks who practice every week, and even competed against them (we lost). Overall, though, we hit 4th out of 16 races in the qualifying event! Not bad!

I finished it up with an 11+ mile Tough Mudder starting at 8300 feet above sea level, raising money for the Wounded Warrior project.
So Amit came out to visit this last weekend. It’s a weird time to be visiting … we just got another couple inches of snow on Wednesday after a 70 degree weekend. Skiing isn’t good now, but Trailridge is still closed and thanks to the snow, hiking trails are really muddy. All kinds of in-between. Thankfully, his visit was at least mostly pleasant weather (50’s and 60’s). This trip’s theme, in retrospect, was “live music and good food”. Continue reading “Amit’s Visit to Denver”
