Big Weekend, Coming Up!

If you're an athlete in northern Colorado, this is going to be a great weekend!

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 22:
From 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Runners Without Borders will be taking place at Lory State Park. Stay the whole day if you like, or drop by for an hour or two. If you're running between 10:30 a.m. and noon I'll be recording your laps at the start/finish, so do say hello! The event will raise funds for Doctors Without Borders, and will be SO much fun we'll be talking about it for years to come. So check out Scott's blog for details, and don't miss out!

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 23:
Then, on Sunday evening, Forge Motion Pictures, Fort Collins Herbivores, and Jax Outdoor Gear are co-sponsoring "Fueled: Extreme Adventure Powered By Simple Foods." The event starts at 7pm with a screening of the short film "Wildwater," featuring world-class whitewater kayaker and vegan athlete Darcy Gaechter. Following the screening, there will be a panel discussion and q & a with Darcy and three local vegan athletes... including me! I firmly believe that lifestyle choices like veganism are intensely personal, so I avoid proselytizing about being (or going!) vegan, but if veganism is something you're curious about and you'd like to learn more, please join me at the Bean Cycle for this event. It will be a great forum to learn more about being vegan, and how to fuel your athletic endeavors with a plant-based diet. Click on the image to enlarge, & view event details.

Have a great weekend, everyone, and see you on the trail!
