1,000 Miles: Month 4

with 3 comments

Running takes time.

Any passion or project that we have requires time, but that time doesn’t appear out of thin air; we have to make that time. This is no news, but committing to running a certain number of miles a week means carving out space for a daily workout routine.

From the outside perspective this may seem tough. In fact, I have many friends that have said something along the lines of “man, that much take up so much of your time… I couldn’t do that” (note: yes, it does, and yes, yes you could). We’re all busy, and the thought of devoting at least an hour, sometimes two, almost every day is daunting to most. But the beauty of it is that eventually it becomes a habit. Skipping a run feels odd and disconcerting. It simply isn’t an option.

Sometimes cold mountain air does more for a creative work brainstorm than a desk could ever do. Well, all of the time actually.

Friday Photo: A Classic Fourteener

You can gauge the quality of your week by your views. This one was pretty unbeatable.

First official fourteener now in the books: Quandaray Peak, Colorado, 14,265 feet. Complete with summit headstands and mountain goats of course.

Local Food Tours in Boulder

leave a comment »

Tack on another reason to go to Colorado (again) to my ever expanding list… Local Table Tours. Thanks to Megan for doing this interview!

With a lot of local residents from the nearby Denver area taking part in her tours, Bucholz has built her business to not only explore food, but benefit the local businesses of Boulder. “The idea of the tour is that at the end you get to decide where you want to return because I want to drive business back to the restaurants.” Her tours include downtown dining tours, market-to-tables tours and even more coffee-centric ones for the caffeine obsessed, because as it turns out, Boulder has a lot to offer.

On the stretch from Telluride to Dolores, Colorado. A beautiful field filled with yellow, perfect for a few photo opps.

It’s hard not to fall in love with this place.

This place where the mountains are a stone’s throw away. This place where the air is thin yet clean. This place where community thrives. This place where you can watch the sun set every night and still be amazed.

Planning and Scheming

leave a comment »

For a couple of weeks in this:

All thanks to Red Reel who’s busy planning Month of Colorado.

So the countdown begins for a full month of working and meeting up with a lot of good people in one of my favorite states; Boulder is pretty much another version of Portland I’ve been told.

And that means looking forward to some good photos, afternoons spent drawing in the journal, early morning trail runs and being constantly inspired. It doesn’t get much better.

Want the 23 Feet Tour to come to you? Help support it!

Mountainfilm: Submit to a Fantastic Festival of Film, Art and Culture

leave a comment »

I heart Mountainfilm Festival, an amazing festival of film, art and culture, and I’m so excited about attending the real deal this year (don’t worry, I’ve been to the one on tour)! So here’s a little something from the Under Solen blog to inspire all you creative types:

Art + Adventure + Culture + Environment. Does it get any better than that?

In its 32nd year, Mountainfilm Festival is so much more than a film festival. It’s a four-day six-senses experience of all those things we love: art, adventure, culture and environment. With the motto “Celebrating the Indomitable Spirit” it’s hard not to get excited.

The festival takes place over Memorial Day Weekend (this year May 28-31), and although it might seem a little early to be making travel plans, if you’re a filmmaker, you’ll want to pay attention. Submissions for the 2010 festival are still being accepted, and if you submit before January 12, 2010 the submission fee is only $60. Submit by February 12, 2010 and your fee bumps up to $70. (Short films — 20 minutes or less — have a submission fee of $25 and will be accepted until February 12, 2010).

Why submit? Because Mountainfilm “is America’s premier festival celebrating achievement in mountain, adventure, culture and environment.”

What do they accept? Mountainfilm accepts and screens films – doc and narrative, feature and short – on a broad range of subjects. They’re particularly into quirky causes and indomitable spirit. Learn more about submitting here. To get a feel for the festival you can also check out a list of last year’s films, and others, here.
