Motivational Monday - Habits of Highly Motivated Runners

by Cory Dudley

 

Boulder, Colorado has been found to be one of the highest ranked cities in America when it comes to overall well-being. Many Boulderites cite a strong sense of purpose and community as a reason behind that, but no one overlooks the fact that physical activity plays a huge part in the area's glow. The foothills are a runner's paradise, providing variety, beautiful scenery and many well-maintained trails. 

 

 

Runners are big dreamers and often set lofty goals; beat that furthest distance, lose the extra weight, shave off a few seconds here and a few there... But what comes after you've achieved your goals? How do runners stay motivated to continue on without a clear finish line in mind? 

Here are the top healthy habits of the most highly motivated runners out there, and some tips on how to develop said habits. Remember - even if you aren't an avid runner (or are striving to be), the benefits of these habits are guaranteed to spill over into other areas of your life as well!

 

1.) Become a Morning Runner (or Person!)

 


 

Prepare - If you want to do something new, make sure you set yourself up for success from the very beginning. Planning to jog out the door at 5am tomorrow? Set out your clothes, shoes, water bottle and gear the night before. Put your alarm clock across the room too, so you're unable to hit that snooze button. You'll find that any excuse you make seems ridiculous when your sneakers are calling to you from the front mat...

Invite Group Participation - Nothing will motivate you to follow through like knowing your friend is waiting out on the curb for you. Not only will you benefit from the accountability factor, but you'll enjoy the company as well!

 

2.) Eat More Vegetables

 


 

Pick Your Favorites - Don't force yourself to drink those wheat grass shots if you simply cannot stand the taste of them. Pick and choose the veggies you most enjoy, even if they are more expensive or aren't on the "superfood" list - you'll reap the rewards regardless.

Replace Snacks - Trade in your potato chips for produce whenever you can. It will improve your energy levels all day and help you create consistency for mealtime, too. 

 

3.) Unplug Once a Week 

 

 

Focus On Your Motivation - By changing up your routine and leaving your technological gadgets and iPod at home, you allow yourself to discover a new appreciation for your routines. Open your mind to focus on other things like disconnecting from stress, pondering a challenge or what you are grateful for. 

Remind Yourself - Changes can be difficult to remember when we're on autpilot and going out the door. Choose the same day each week to unplug during your run and you'll be more likely to remember!

 

4.) Cook At Home More

 

 

Clean Your Kitchen - Sometimes we subconsciously can't stand the arrangement of our kitchen, which can deter from wanting to cook there. Eliminate clutter or move more essential items out onto the countertops and tuck away those less-used pots and pans for another day.

Plan For Flavor - Let's face it... The same old meals get boring, whether you know they're healthy or not. Carve out time to search for recipes each week and do one shopping trip for everything. If you're interested in what's on the menu, you're much more likely to follow through and make it.

 

5.) Prioritize Sleep

 

 

Firm Up Bedtime - Whatever your typical sleeping time is, add an additional 30-60 minutes to that and commit to it! Clear an additional hour beforehand to wind down, prepare, journal, etc; If you're the sort of person who expects late night calls and texts from friends out on the town, turn off your cell phone and get back to them tomorrow; they'll understand.

Don't Sacrifice Sleep - Your sleep should be given priority over other "priorities." Rather than cutting your shut-eye short, adjust tomorrow's schedule to accommodate, if you can. Morning runs can be shortened or pushed back, and should not dictate your sleep routine.

Unplug - Facts are facts, folks... Blue light that is commonly emitted from TVs, phones, tablets and computer screen have been proven to reduce the body's production of melatonin; a hormone essential to regulating sleep. Instead of scrolling Facebook till you pass out, read a book or take a bath to relax.

 


Motivational Monday - Being In the Moment

by Cory Dudley

 

 

What does it feel like to be present?

To be here in the now and fully experiencing this moment. Free from any weight of the past or any anticipation of the future. Just free. Free to realize that only you can control how you feel. About anything.... Free to see things for what they are and free to give your time and energy to what really matters.

 

(Video Credit: High On Life)


Accept the fact that everything that makes up your world is there because you attracted it with your own thoughts. Realize that you can control your thoughts and emotions. There’s no big secret. Just choose to think better feeling thoughts. Listen to your emotions and chose to feel good. You can decide to be in a place of attraction and abundance.

 

 

What do you want to do in your life? What makes you tick? What makes you feel awe? Don’t be misled into thinking that you’re supposed to do anything. You are supposed to do only what you chose to do.

 

 

The world is vast and full of possibilities.

Follow your bliss.

Get out of your comfort zone.

 

 

Stop looking for reasons why you can’t and look for reasons why you can...

 

Cory's HOT PICK of the Week!

by Cory Dudley

 

My HOT PICK for the week is 462 Aspen Drive in Lyons, CO. Maybe our weekly Rocky Mountain National Park Series has you thinking about a family get-away home...


 

In the secluded Big Elk Meadows Subdivision, this cabin feels far away from the daily grind of day-to-day life - and the stresses that come with it. Despite the secluded vibe, you're nestled nicely between Lyons and Estes Park...

 

 

A true, log cabin build and skylights give this home plenty of light and a rustic feel throughout.


 

The spacious laundry room is located on the main level for easy access - clothing washer and dryer are both included.

 

 

The walk-out basement has a built-in radon system and is 90% finished! Complete with a crawl space for additional storage.

 

 

If you're looking for a bit of quiet, the deck provides some solitude and a beautiful view.

 

 

This home sits within the Estes Park School District and horses are allowed.

Proximity to both Estes Park and Lyons gives you great opportunity for outdoor fun and exploration all year-round. Check out the Estes Park Blog for the inside scoop,  and put Hall Ranch on your list of places to visit.

Rocky Mountain National Park Series - A Unique Holiday Gift

by Cory Dudley

 

If you're still in search of the perfect holiday gift or stocking stuffer, a Rocky Mountain National Park Annual Pass is just the thing for anyone who enjoys visiting the park - or would like to visit more in the coming year!

 

 

This is a gift in more ways than one. Not only is the recipient able to enjoy all that the National Park has to offer, but the park itself benefits greatly from the contribution. In the past 20 years, over $68 million from fees have helped to renovate campground facilities, replace picnic table throughout the park, repair trailhead signs, mitigate hazard trees, operate the park's visitor shuttle bus system, rehabilitate and maintain 350 miles of trails, and so much more.

 

No matter the season, the park has something to offer everyone; winter activities are plentiful during the chillier months, and visitors can explore the lesser known corners of the park for a unique and secluded experience.

 

 

The park pass will increase in price from $50 to $60 as of January 1st, 2017. You can purchase your pass today at any Rocky Mountain National Park entrance station, or online HERE until December 30th.

 

 

4 Fall-Foliage Colorado Drives To Take This Autumn

by Cory Dudley

 

 

The next few weeks offer great views of the changes taking place through Colorado as fall settles in. Though a lot of us are still desperately clinging to the last warm days of summer (especially given these hot temperatures that just won't give up) we are officially on the edge of autumn.

Colorado offers a beautiful, colorful transition into this new season via gorgeous fall foliage displays.  We know that you could walk down your street and likely find some yellowing and maybe even a few orange hues, here and there. But where are the absolute best places to enjoy our state at its most colorful if you have a vehicle, some good company and a bit of time?

 

Conifer to South Park over Kenosha Pass

Distance: 54 miles (one way)

Begin in Conifer and travel along Route 285 traversing Kenosha Pass. End up in Fairplay, which is the largest town in the South Park valley.

 

 

TV and pop culture fans will recognize 'South Park' from the animated series, but anyone who truly knows about the show's background will tell you that the show is based on the writer's experiences growing up in Conifer, not 'South Park.' The entire drive is wide, well maintained and easy navigated. Yellow and red aspen woodlands provide a striking contrast to Douglas firs and ponderosa pines the entire drive up. You'll be rewarded with fantastic views of the Mosquito Range peaks when the pass eventually ends up in the high grassland basin of South Park.

 

Rim Rock Drive through Colorado National Monument

Distance: 23 miles (one way)

Take I-70 to Grand Junction and exit 31 (Horizon Drive). Follow the signs that steer you directly to the monument's east entrance.

This drive is along a well-maintained paved road, but you'll end up wishing you were trotting along on horseback, complete with a Stetson and spurs. Be sure to check out a statue of Colorado National Monument's most dedicated park ranger, John Otto, which was unveiled in nearby Fruita in 2011. It is super easy to make a weekend of it in the Grand Junction area, so get to planning that itinerary.

 

Nederland to the Fourth of July Trailhead

Distance: 9 miles (one way)

From Ned, drive south on CO 119 for a half mile., then turn right on CR 130 toward Eldora. Follow the road until the pavement ends (isn't that a rock song?) and then continue for another 4 miles to the end of the road. Much of the drive is unpaved and therefor very bumpy, so plan on slow speeds.

 

(Photo Credit

This drive is closer than some of the others, making it appealing for those  who don't have a full day or weekend available. Though the road will be terribly bumpy almost half the trip, you'll be greatly rewarded with beautiful fall colors amidst densely wooded aspen trees. The trail is named for it's tendency to have snow on the ground until Fourth of July, making it a very popular starting point for many hikes.

 

Fall River Road to St. Mary's Alice Glacier

Distance: 9 miles (one way)

Coming from Denver, take I70 west to exit 238 (Fall River Rd.) Follow it for 9 miles to the St. Mary's Alice trailhead. Be careful - the road is very steep and winding, though 4WD vehicles are not required.

 

 

Fall colors burst forth from dense willows and bristlecone pines on this drive. The drive itself is easy to find and convenient, though steep. If you're feeling like a photo op and some exploring, attempt the 1.5-mile hike to the "glacier" and lake. This hike is mostly an uphill climb that takes you to elevations 11,000 feet, so be prepared!

 

Bike to Work Day 2016

by Cory Dudley

 

 

Whether you bike to work normally, ride to save money and time, take the initiative in honor of your health and environment or enjoy the mode of transportation over other options, National Bike Month is your opportunity to celebrate the many reasons why we ride!

Though the "National Bike to Work Day" was May 20th, Colorado has taken an approach all it's own. Thanks to the beautiful weather, especially in the mountains, the state legislature moved it to June! Even if you don't usually hop onto your bike all that often, Wednesday, June 22nd is the time to give it a go.. Afterall, over 30,000 people participated last year!

 

How did "Bike to Work Day" even come to be?

It is a Colorado tradition. The City of Boulder celebrated it's first "Bike to Work Day" more than 25 years ago. The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) began promoting it statewide and in 1995, the Denver Regional Council began aiding various cities and counties in linking smaller versions of the event together. Now it is celebrated in many communities along the Front Range.

 

 

So, why bike?

The real question is.. Why NOT? AAA states that anyone who lives 5 miles away from their office can save almost $6 for the day by riding a bike versus climbing in their car.

Not only will you save money, but it could help to save your life - According to Bicycling.com, someone who weighs 150 pounds and rides at the moderate pace of 10-12 MPH will burn 170 calories within 25 minutes!

 

I haven't been on my bike in a while.. How should I prepare?

Take a look at your bike for any obvious issues. Tires should be adequately inflated, the seat should fit your body nicely and the brakes and chains should be in working order. It's always a great idea to bring a flat tire repair kit, too! Also - don't forget your bike lock!

 

Is the weather good enough for biking tomorrow?

Right now the forecast is calling for a high that could reach 87 degrees, so make sure you wear sunscreen, light clothing and bring lots of water for the ride. There is a chance for storms but you should expect sunshine.

 

 

What sort of route should I take for my ride?

Often times we deal with roadside construction on our usual trek to work, which will now throw a wrench in your plans. Click here to find current road closures and by clicking here you can access a map that will give you routes from your house to work and back home again!

 

I might be too tired to bike home after working all day... How do I get home if I don't have my car or someone to pick me up?

If you can find the motivation and time to bike to work but not back home, RTD will allow people to bring their clean bikes onto light rails and commuter rails (buses are already equipped with racks.)

 

But I don't  enjoy riding my bike alone....

You're not alone in that! If you'd rather ride with a group, click here to check out a complete Colorado list of groups and get involved.

 

 

It can be difficult to have an appetite worked up early in the morning, but eating a powerhouse breakfast is essential to having a positive and productive day. To help you out, here's a list of breakfast stations all across Colorado. They all offer different types of food and at different times. Some are even hosting Bike Parties or are simple refreshment stations, so be sure to pick the best fit along your route.
