Day Seventeen: First Snow

Today was the first snow in Colorado for the season.  Denver was not messing around either.  We are up to 8″ and it’s still coming down.

The general thoughts on the early snowstorm have the majority of Coloradans split down the center, they are either a. stoked because the gnar is coming early  and it’s a sign of some serious shredding to come* or b. annoyed that winter is starting in October.  I’m of the first variety.  So much so, that I awoke with little tears in my eyes and ran to my rooftop to take pictures to send to my fiance that is in a place that never gets below 90 degrees.

So what would my workout be on a day that I’m so over-filled with gratitude?  You probably guessed it.  I decided to have my cup completely overflow and go to Core Power Yoga for a class.  I honestly think it was the best practice I have ever had.  This got me thinking, was my practice so great because my mind was so clear and happy or was my practice great because my body was warm again and moving?  Either way, I was a happy girl with a crow pose that stayed strong for 30 seconds.

I feel compelled to end this entry with the words love and gratitude.  How are you loving your world today?  What fills you with gratitude?  How can you make your cup overflow everyday?   The answers to those questions continually change.  I have got mine answered, at least for now.

*I should not be able to use the words shred or gnar.  Those words are reserved for bros.  A more acceptable sentence for a blonde blogging skier would be, “excited because the snow is coming early and it’s a sign of some amazing skiing to come.”
