This past Saturday, the Riverfront Athletic Club made the trek up I-70 to train at elevation putting their skills to the test against the heat and numerous amounts of stairs (all done willingly I might add) in the first ever Red Rocks Boot Camp hosted by our Club.
Besides the heat, the event was a major success receiving rave reviews across the board from all of those that took part. Be sure to stay tuned as to when the next trip up the mountain will be scheduled.
In the meantime, the in-between-time, make sure that you prepare yourself by checking out any of our Boot Camps or any of our other classes that our Club has to offer, simply check us out on-line!
The Railyard Dog Park is big news!
Also, please don’t forget that even though construction has begun we are still fundraising! To continue the generous donations that got the park this far, please go to http://www.railyarddogs.org.
Yep. From today’s Denver Post:
“Denver’s population spurt accelerated last year as it became the Front Range’s growth-rate leader for the first time in decades and one of the five fastest-growing major counties in the nation."
But, why? If you’re already a Riverfront resident, the answer won’t surprise you:
Mark Muro , director of policy at the Brookings Institution’s Metropolitan Policy Program, said Denver’s growth is in the forefront of a return to urban centers in the U.S. “I think one of the major themes from the post-housing- crash has been a retrenchment of population into urban cities,” Muro said. Residents want to live closer to where they work, he said.
We’re so excited. The new Union Gateway Bridge (formerly the 18th Street Pedestrian Bridge) is open! It’s incredibly cool. Take the time to walk over there. The key moment? Riding down the glass elevator on the Union Station side of the bridge. The second cool part? Watching construction at Union Station. Really, an amazing view that none of us have ever seen before. For a few details on the bridge, click on through.
