Now, Christmas is almost here and for whatever reason it seems like it is this time of year when the corny sayings and stories are in full effect. Today I had the day off running but needed to do some cross training so I headed up to NCAR to go for a little hike. Now I grew up in Boulder, so hiking the Mesa trail should be nothing new, but to be completely honest I’ve only done it maybe a handful of times.
Unfortunately, growing up here I realize now that I really took Boulder’s Best for granted when I was younger. I mean, my HS CC team used to run 10 mins and we were on some of the nicest trails in the world, but that was what we did every day so I never really thought twice about it. Once I went to college and came back I really started to realize how cool of a place Boulder is and how many unique opportunities it has. Now, there are definitely some things about Boulder I dislike but lately I have really noticed a lot of the awesome things we have here.
Slow down, look around, and make sure you are enjoying where you are. You never know when you might decide 4 years in Iowa City is a good idea… haha I’m just kidding, IC is the greatest college town in the world!
