In front of the Winter X Games half pipe

Aspen, CO-
Easily the most legitimate excuse on the list, the threat of cold related injury can scare even the most dedicated Aspenites off the road to fitness. Though very important to be aware of, fear of these problems need not stifle your progress. Serious conditions like hypothermia and severe frost bite make for an easy cop-out, but are even easier to avoid in the first place.

Keller Williams is coming to the Vilar Center!!!

My Golden Ticket to see Keller Williams at the Vilar Center in Beaver Creek on Thursday January 13th, 2011My Golden Ticket to see Keller Williams at the Vilar Center in Beaver Creek on Thursday January 13th, 2011 Aspen, CO - Music moves me... and it surely soothes the soul of this savage beast as well!! It's notes move through me like a cool running creek and I NEED it in my life like I need air to breathe. Many of you reading this might think I'm being a bit dramatic but those of you who feel as I do about music and those who make it KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THIS CHICK IS TALKIN' ABOUT!!
I was lucky enough to grow up ½ hour away from a pretty large outdoor amphitheater, Saratoga Performing Arts Center or SPAC for those of you out there who might be from the part of the country that I spent my “early life” rocking it out. Friends and I spent countless summer hours hanging out in the parking lot, before the shows, playing Frisbee, smoking ciggies and swilling a bit of sauce yet we all knew why we were really there!!! Whether it was Eric Clapton, Elton John, Heart, The Steve Miller Band, The Doobie Brothers, Fleetwood Mac, Phish, Ozzy Osbourne, etc., it was ALWAYS about the music that was going to fill our ears and the melodies that would get our feet moving and for that I am and will be forever grateful!!
