We’ve landed in Breckenridge, Colorado for a weekend of some serious altitude training. Well, actually, it will probably be more like a weekend of wine and food, with some hikes and mountain biking thrown in for good measure and less guilt.
Oh yeah…We also signed up for the Breckenridge Firecracker 10K Trail Race tomorrow 🙂 Leave it to us to scout out an organized race on “vacation.” It should be an interesting time as neither one of us has done a lick of running since Buffalo Springs last weekend; not to mention the fact that we’re at almost 10,000 ft with no acclimation yet. I’m sure we’ll have plenty of fun pics to share from this weekend’s adventures.
Before I forget–If you’re ever in Denver, you MUST eat at SNOOZE . This little diner was freaking fantastic and the owners and waitstaff were out of this world accommodating and welcoming. The owner paid for our parking meter and our waitress gave us free pancakes because we just had to try her favorite flavor. Oh yes–the pancakes. We went on a “pancake flight” that included: sweet potato, pineapple upside down, reese’s, chocolate and coconut and cherry cobler. I’m not kidding. We sampled them all…And that was on top of my breakfast burrito and Shawn’s pulled pork piglet benedict. Who’s the piglet now?!
It was a great way to start our long weekend vacation (that and the two mimosas we drank, as well).
Have a great and safe 4th of July Holiday!
