My Favorite Day of the Year!

Only 10 days until my favorite day of the year - Bolder Boulder 10K! It's every Memorial Day, but that's not why it's my favorite. It's my favorite day because it's the largest, goofiest 10K in the country, it's right here in Boulder and the finish line is Colorado University's football stadium Folsom Field.

This year Kyle has been a patient and wonderful running partner helping to me ready for the big race. He is so sweet and never ditches me during the big day, although we both know he could. But that's not what Bolder Boulder is about for us. It's about family and enjoying the race, the fun of running next to people of all ages, bands, kissing elvis impersonators,  impromptu water slides, Doritos and water stations, and the gorgeous valley we call home.

I got my awesome "couch to 10K" training plan from TrainingPeaks (Kyle's work) and have been using a GPS app on my iphone called "Wahoo Fitness" to track my training runs. Farrah even comes along on the runs and has proven to be quick the little jogging dog!

This year my mom and little sister Greta are coming into town for the race too! Counting down the days...

Since the start of the New Year, we have started a fun new Cunningham family tradition. As a young couple with a lot of friends and family close by, it was shocking how little we actually saw our loved ones. Patty came across an article about a similar couple who started to invite friends and family over EVERY Friday night for meatballs.

That got me thinking, why not us? So #sundaynightspaghetti was born. Every Sunday, or at least every Sunday we are in town, friends and family come over to enjoy my "famous" spaghetti and my mothers "world famous" garlic bread. The spaghetti is good...but people come back for the garlic bread.

It has been a great experience for Patty and I to work together hosting people at our house. Most importantly, we get to use all of the great presents from our wedding. Each week we work together to give the apartment a quick clean, prep the food, get in a (minor) argument, and most importantly greet our guests and relax with friends. It has been such a pleasure to work together and bring our friends and family to the table and share a great meal.

Table is set.
If you are even in Boulder for the weekend, let us know and we will save a seat for you.
