Fish Creek Falls Hiking- Steamboat Springs

September 30th, 2017

Fall is here, the air is crisp, and the leaves are changing quickly. This is the perfect time of year to plan a hike in Steamboat Springs. The one I highly suggest is Fish Creek Falls. Fish Creek Falls is only 4.4 miles outside town. It is actually a 283-foot waterfall in a state park. Because this is a state park be prepared to pay $5 per vehicle or bring your state park pass. Once you park, you will have a few options for hikes- easy, moderate, hard. All hikes are dog friendly, which is great news for your furry friends. The lower falls are also handicap accessible! Fish Creek Falls Trail is... Read More

Cannabis, Stress, and Mental Health

September 30th, 2017

Having recently made a personal commitment to achieve a better work life balance, I find myself feeling encouraged to talk about stress, mental health, and even share a bit about my own life’s stressors. Mental health is very important, and the stress of life’s bountiful challenges can take a toll on it very quickly. Gary Vaynerchuk is quoted as saying, “Everybody has shit”, and he’s right. We all have our own shit in our lives we have to deal with. It can often be easy to get caught up in it, to the point you may not consider other people are going through their own shit, so keep that... Read More

Beer With a Cause

September 29th, 2017

Denver has never been shy about being a lush–but with great power comes great responsibility, as they say, and I am proud that the beer community in Denver often uses its brimming love for the craft to do as much good in as possible. There is a special interest beer on several taproom menus that gears profits toward a special cause, as well as benefit events, concerts, and fundraisers. This week, I want to write and share my experience at the 2nd Annual Craft Beer and Wine Festival in Broomfield, benefiting the Marc Jr Foundation. The Marc Jr Foundation was founded in 2008, and aims to financially... Read More

Avalanche Season Preview

September 28th, 2017

    A new season is upon us, and for Avalanche fans everywhere, many question whether or not they should even tune in. One cannot blame them after witnessing the disastrous 48-point season of last year. Not only was it the worst year the franchise has had in its existence since 1996, but also a historically bad season in the modern NHL era.   I am here today however to tell you exactly why you need to keep the faith and support the team this season.   Young talent. Yea yea yea, we’ve been hearing that for years. With the likes of Duchene, Landeskog, and Mackinnon that has... Read More

Your Walking Pace May Determine Your Longevity

September 28th, 2017

It’s long been known that improving your physical fitness is associated with living a longer life. Studies show that past age 65, your walking speed at your natural pace is a surprisingly reliable predictor of survival. The study looked at the natural gait speed of more than 34,000 participants age 65 and older from nine previous studies. These studies followed outcomes for 12 years or more, in which time almost half of the participants died. They found a consistent effect of how long people lived and whether they had a faster or slower gait speed. Those who walked naturally at 2.2 miles... Read More
