Colorado resolution races and adventure events

When most people set New Years resolutions they set goals like “eat healthier”, “lose 5lbs” or “exercise more often”.  While quite vague, these goals also lack a certain element of excitement to me.
My resolutions take a different shape, in the form of various adventures and races I’d like to accomplish before the year’s end. l’ve compiled a list of some of my all time favorite events some of which I have completed and others that are still on my list.
