This morning Tina and I hit the pavement for a 4 mile run. But since we’re in Denver we only ran 3 miles and got credit for a free one since we’re a mile high. That’s how it works, right?
The elevation was rough! I live at sea level hello.
We stayed at the Omni hotel and they had this random thing outside. So, an obligatory “Running out of TP!!” joke was in order. You’re welcome.
Then, I had an exciting new life experience…
I ordered room service for the first time!!! This was a big deal to me. I was so excited I think the delivery person was super weirded out. Ha. Joke’s on them, I always get that excited to EAT.
From there we headed back to the Silk offices for a day full of milk alternative talk.
It was interesting to learn about the company and products.
Some of the things I learned today…
1. It takes 77% less water to make a half gallon of soymilk versus a half gallon of cow’s milk.
2. Only 25% of Americans drink plant based beverages right now.
3. All Silk products are non-GMO.

Then, we had a smoothie competition!
The company reps put out all the smoothie ingredients you could ever dream of and challenged us to each make a smoothie with the Silk beverage of our choice.
I really had no idea what to make at first, but then inspiration struck.
If you know me, you might be aware that I once tried to sell my brother for a Snickers bar. Hey, I’m not myself when I’m hungry.
So, as soon as I spotted this key ingredient I knew what I had to do.
I created a Dark Chocolate Cherry Smoothie. I even snuck in some spinach!
Everyone got to work and even though we all take our smoothie work very seriously, we had fun.
We did a blind taste test and voting…
It totally worked out that all the smoothies were different flavors and colors.
and my smoothie won 2nd place!!! Recipe coming soon.
From there we took care of few more things before heading to the airport.
Tina and I had dinner at Udi’s
I ordered a salad and stole her fries. She didn’t mind because I guilt tripped her since I lost to her in the smoothie competition.
Dessert was an Udi’s Gluten Free Muffin. Because who needs gluten when you have sugar, right? Right.
My flight has been delayed, so I’m sitting here on the airport floor, contracting a disease and talking to you nice people.
Question: Let’s vote – Do I get an extra mile’s credit for being in super high elevation?
We should make that a thing.
Silk brought me out for this trip as part of their ambassador program. All opinions and mile high add-on theories are my own.
