About

I’m going to keep this short and simple. I’ll tell you all the moderately interesting things, give you a few photos to smirk at then leave it up to you to read the blog or ask for more info. Either one works for me. For now, enjoy…

My name is Heidi. I am married to Chris.
We grew up in the same tiny hometown in WI.
In 2011 we picked up our lives and moved to CO.

That move changed our lives.

Chris and I started dating in high school.
We got married in 2009 in the Colorado Rockies…
…exactly six years after our first date.

Some people find our relationship odd.
It works great for us.
I’m the crazy one. He is fairly normal.
Chris keeps me balanced. I don’t let him get bored.

I like to call myself a runner.
I run with the Boulder Running Company Racing Team.
Recently I discovered trails…then ultramarathons.
I ran my first 50K, then moved over to the dark side.
Looks like 2014 is guaranteed to be a long year, iykwim.

Since our move to Colorado we’ve grown our gear closet.
We now have almost everything you need for…

trail running
mountain biking
snowboarding
splitboarding
snowshoeing
mountain hiking
backpacking/camping

There is just something about Colorado and the people living here.
Everyone is inviting, encouraging and just plain awesome.
We started out by tagging along and borrowing gear.
Then we discovered Sierra Trading Post and all bets were off.
If we buy a home it will have a gear room.

Just in case that wasn’t quite enough information…

bright colors make me happy, especially green/orange/purple
I strongly prefer grocery shopping over clothes shopping
running shoes are the only shoes I enjoy shopping for
snow is my favorite form of precipitation
but I love the way a spring rain smells
I’m fairly low maintenance, but require mascara

So, there you have it. If you have questions…fire away.

  1. Hey! Just came across your blog, I am from Wisconsin and dating my high school boyfriend still. We met in 7th grade and it was fate ;). Thought I’d stop in and say hey!

  2. I love that we both have husbands named Chris…I have never lived in WI – but my husband went to college in Milwaukee…then we met when he moved back to CO :)

    • I’m right there with you. I won’t hesitate to suit up in snowboarding gear just to frolic in the yard but as soon as the snow gets crusty and brown I’m over it. So far CO had delivered wonderfully in the snow department!

    • Anyone who can also say “snow, yes!” and “kids, meh!” is a perfect friend in my book! I was to Lake Tahoe a few summers ago…and cannot wait to go snowboarding with views of the lake! Our season passes cover Heavenly and Northstar so we’ve talked of making the trip…do you have decent snow yet?! ;)

      • Oh wow…now I feel like a complete moron. Just so you know, I’m aware of the fact Lake Tahoe is in CA, not Utah…just felt the need to point that out! We were talking about Heavenly this morning and I had an “oh my goodnes, I’m an idiot” moment and had to come correct this! Gah. I am now going to go sit in the corner…and hide!

        All of that being said – where do you board in Utah, you know, places that actually exist within the boundaries of the state?

  3. Hey! Found you from Heather on Twitter – just wanted to say that we’ve got some things in common and you should join us for the Pure Barre class! My fiance and I are getting married on the day before our 6 year dating anniversary and he also lived in Wisconsin (MKE) for 1 year of those 6 – we love WI! Mmm. Cheese curds and beer. Anyway, hello!

  4. Hey Heidi,
    I’m also a fellow born and raised Wisconsinite. I’m just curious to what part of Wisconsin you grew up in. Since you tend to do a lot of stuff in the Twin Cities I’m guessing you are from western Wisconsin, which is also where I am from. I grew up in a small town near the MN/WI border near Rice Lake. Just curious.

    • I know! I think you’ve been in my Feedly for a while, just never followed up with Twitter! I kind of love BRC too — the people are awesome and who doesn’t love new shoes/gear?!
