From Denver With Feelings

Hello, from Denver!

Sorry I didn’t post yesterday. I can’t really blame the conference for keeping me busy. I just wasn’t in the mood.

Frankly, I haven’t been in the mood for a few days now. I’m eating like crap, I’m not really sleeping well and I’ve been trying to manage my stress levels with the conference but… I’m not. Not very well anyway. My jaw hurts because I keep unconsciously clenching it.

That said, I’m ecstatic to be around my support crew.

That’s us in the security line at the airport. These women are my rocks. I’m not sure how I got so lucky to have so many amazing people in my life.

We arrived at the hotel around 2 p.m. and the craziness already began. I messed up a couple of our hotel reservations, I managed a few sponsor requests, and I had to modify our food choices, again.

It’s funny because now that I’m taking a moment to think about everything I feel better, not worse. None of this is a big deal. I will manage the next few days and what will be will be. Actually, I will manage the next few days while hanging out with lots of really awesome, inspirational, motivated, supportive people and what will be will be.

Now I feel tons better. This is why I blog.

Aafter we handled a few things we headed to dinner at Tom’s Urban. It was wonderful! And I enjoyed (a couple of) my new favorite drink. A mule!

It’s basically a vodka-based drink with ginger beer and served in a copper cup. I friend introduced me to them a few months ago.

Right now we’re in the hotel just chilling with silly facial masks  just ’cause.


Tomorrow it’s bag stuffing and finalizing everything. Then it’s go time.

I plan on Periscoping some fun stuff over the next few days if you happen to be a user. I’m also TRYING to learn Snapchat but it’s not coming as natural to me. I’m @RoniNoone on both, at least I should be. lol.  I feel so old and out of touch but I’m trying. I love learning new things.

OK, I’m going to go and get this junk off my face. I’m hoping to get a good night sleep. I’m going to drop into a local CrossFit affiliate tomorrow morning early and then hit the ground running!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    I love how you keep it real here on the blog. The good,bad,and ugly.

    I seem to handle stress much like yourself and am not very happy with this either. I will hope both our lives get a little easier real soon.

    “I’m not sure how I got so lucky to have so many amazing people in my life.” Really???? When I think of you I always think of you as an amazing person. And amazing attracts amazing-ness! And always remember this: “A good head and good heart are always a formidable combination. But when you add to that a literate tongue or pen, then you have something very special.”–Nelson Mandela Have a great time!

    Glad to hear you’re feeling a bit better! I find that journaling to me is similar to blogging to you. . . it’s very therapeutic and I almost always feel better one I’m done.

    Thank you Roni and crew for all your work! It’s a huge blessing to many, and I hope you get some good sleep tonight. Can’t wait to meet you all!
