Boulder & Beers: my kind of fitness conference.

Thursday morning began adventure #2 for me this month. I flew from Boston to Denver to attend Fit Social; a fitness and social media conference. There were many things I was excited about for this trip. Top 5?

1.) I’ve never been to Denver or Boulder, and I was about to travel to both!
2.) I was traveling with my good friend and coworker Moe.
3.) I knew I was going to be able to meet and mingle with some awesome bloggers!
4.) Half of our conference was spent at the Anschulz Center for Health and Wellness. Most popularly known for its appearances on ABC’s Extreme Weight Loss. Ps: Chris Powell had just left from shooting season 4. Bummer.

5.) Colorado is known for their craft brews and plentiful organic foods. I couldn’t wait to eat and drink my way through these cities 🙂

Of course there were many more aspects that I couldn’t wait to explore, but I’ll get into that later.

Arriving Thursday around noon meant it was 2pm Boston time. Moe and I were signed up to hike the Flat Iron mountains about 30 minutes after arriving in Colorado. Mmm… If I didn’t realize how much I love traveling with Moe before, I sure do know! It took about one glance at each other before realizing we were both wicked hungry, phones were died (only form of cameras we had!) and were both experiencing some altitude sickness.

Into Boulder we went. First stop,  Mountain Sun Brewery! I had a fan-freakin-tactic turkey wrap with homemade pesto, grilled vegetables and a side salad complete with maple-balsamic vinaigrette. Is your mouth watering yet?To wash it all down we shared a flight of local brews. I feel like this is the best way to discover a new city. Try the local restaurants, ask your server for suggestions and walk around! You never know what you’ll stumble upon.

Speaking of stumbling upon, while dining at Mountain Sun, Moe and I literally met about 10 people from Massachusetts. We had fun sharing New England-isms while sitting outside and watching the locals.

Lots of “wickeds” were exchanged.

After flying all day and adjusting to the altitude, Moe and I decided to head back to the hotel and call it an early night. Friday was to be a jam packed day filled with the expo and informative seminars.

{Day 2 coming soon…} 

Question: What was the last city you visited? Did you venture to where the locals dine?
