Summer To-Do List Update and The Color Run Discount!

Hello Darlings!

Just about a month ago I posted my Summer To-Do List. I thought it might be fun to give a little update about what I’ve been up to this past month, as I have actually completed quite a few of the items on my list- summer in Denver has been pretty fabulous so far!

1. Explore around Denver with Tinkerbelle! This is in progress! More hikes to come!

2. Participate in a fun run 5k! I am signed up for The Color Run in Denver on August third! SO INCREDIBLY EXCITED! I was super lucky this year and was given free entries to The Color Run™, also known as the Happiest 5k on the Planet, a unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness, individuality, and giving back to the community!

As my first 5k I’m really pleased that this a fun run rather than a ‘get your best time’ race, and would love it if any of my darling readers joined me! Whether you’re in Denver (if so I’d love to meet up at the race!) or near any of the other race locations make sure you use the code COLOR5OFF that works to take $5 off the race in ANY CITY that isn’t sold out!

And if you register with a team of 4 or more you get $5 off your registration automatically and can add this code on top of that for a total of $10 each registration! Such an amazing bargain- make sure you sign up soon so your city doesn't sell out! 

3. Go craft beer tasting. I met up with Heather from Better With Veggies and her darling husband, Kirk, at Lone Tree Brewery and tasted a few fun beers. This will definitely be happening more often this summer!

4. Throw a fun party for my birthday! I decided that everyone was going rollerskating. This was so much fun, however, I was pretty terrible (four wheeled skates are so different than ones with a blade!) and ended up spraining my elbow! Whoops!

5. Attend an event at Red Rocks. This is in the works- sunrise yoga or Fitness on the Rocks? Yes, please!

6. Go to Jazz in the Park. This was such a fun event! I packed my picnic basket with a bottle of wine and Italian tapas and we sat chatting and listening to smooth jazz. So relaxing and so much fun!

7. Go to a Rockies game. Check! I went to a Rockies-Cubs game with a friend who was visiting. A super cute old couple actually traded us tickets so we ended up a few rows back on the third baseline instead of in the boonies. So fun!

8. Vegas with the girls! Plane flight and hotel booked- can’t wait until August!

9. Go on a Denver food tasting tour. Does watching Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives count as research? I’m in the process of mapping out a tour!

10. Sunrise yoga in the Botanical Gardens. I drive past the gardens all of the time, I just need to get my act together and head out one morning!

Have you completed any of the items on your summer to-do list? Let me know in the comments below!

Make sure to let me know if you are doing The Color Run! I’m so excited to see everyone’s pictures and would love to meet up if you are running in Denver!

I was given two free entries to the race to spread the word, the opinions (and excitement!) are all my own.
