Musician William Fitzsimmons brings introspective, lyric-driven tunes to Beaver Creek. By Melanie Wong

T

here’s not too much about William Fitzsimmons’ musical career that you would call normal.

He’s a psychotherapist-turned-songwriter, and stumbled upon his musical career after a collection of songs he’d written and recorded in his basement for personal catharsis gained sudden popularity. His connection to music started when he was young. Both his parents are blind, and Fitzsimmons says that music was an especially power medium in his family. From an early age, he learned to play the guitar and piano. His father is an accomplished pipe organist, and his mother played piano, guitar and sang. “It was a regular part of growing up,� he says. Fitzsimmons’ often melancholy, lyric-driven songs hit the mainstream consciousness when they were featured on two episodes of Grey’s Anatomy in 2005 and 2006. His songs were subsequently featured on a slew of other network shows. Yet despite the spotlight, Fitzsimmons remains remarkably under the radar. He lives in rural Illinois, 30 minutes outside Springfield in a town he describes as “more Cardinals than Cubs,� and continues to write introspective music that draws from deeply personal experiences. Fitzsimmons’ first two albums were written about his unconventional upbringing and dealt with emotional baggage from his family’s breakup. The third was an apology to his ex-wife after his own divorce. His fourth and most recent, “Gold in the Shadow,� has a decidedly more hopeful feel, focusing on healing and change. “I’m a lyricist,� Fitzsimmons explains. “I mean, the music’s interesting, but I’m not the Beach Boys.� SneakPEAK caught up with Fitzsimmons before his appearance at Beaver Creek’s Vilar Center on Sunday, Sept. 30 at 7:30 p.m. as part of the fall Underground Sound Concert Series. Tickets are $30 and available at www.vilarpac.org. SneakPEAK: How did you get your start writing music, and how did that lead to you becoming a professional musician? You started recording music when you were working as a psychologist.

William Fitzsimmons: At the bottom of it all, it’s kind of silly how it happened. I’m one of those lucky folks who fell ass-backwards into it. I was working as a mental health councilor and in the middle of graduate school finishing a master’s in mental health counseling. Music is something that is important to me, and I had a pretty good background playing with my family and the high school marching band, but I didn’t have any thought to it as far as doing it for money. I thought it’d be fun to write songs, and it was necessary for me to find some way to get rid of a lot of baggage and unfinished business from my past and my family. Writing is very therapeutic. You’re literally getting things out of your head with writing. I had them on a MySpace site, and people randomly found the songs, and one thing lead to another. I was only a couple months into having those songs finished when they started going in shows and movies. I hadn’t even released a CD – I was just burning CDs off on my computer for people who wanted it. It was quick, and it was strange, and at first I thought it was this one-time thing. That was 2006. SP: So, you don’t work in the psychology field anymore, but how much does that background affect your music. WF: It informs everything I do. (The music) was not so personally intentional at the beginning. It was pure catharsis – I was like an emo James Taylor. After awhile, I didn’t want to be that guy, on stage nearly crying into his beard (laughs). The songs I’ve been writing the last couple months are still very all-over-the-board emotionally. It still has a tinge of sadness to it. When I write a song, I have to feel like it’s going to affect me and somebody else in a positive or therapeutic way. Some people connect with these songs when they’re in a kind of dark place, and that’s all right. SP: Would you ever return to psychology? FW: Several years ago I talked to a good friend of mine in the music industry, and she said you should try to do one thing really well – don’t have both feet in different pools, being a therapist part time and also making songs on the side. I do have a master’s, and as far as I know, they don’t take that away. That will be there for me when I’m done with music. I still do enjoy psychology. You can’t do everything in life. You have to have a few passions. SP: Your music deals with such personal topics – family

Huskies soccer finding

sweet success Experienced Battle Mountain soccer team has dominated opponents in first half of season. By John O’Neill Cover by Zach Mahone

T

he Battle Mountain High School (BMHS) Huskies boys soccer team has found themselves undefeated at the halfway mark of regular season play, and they look to take the season further than it’s ever gone in the school’s history. The senior-centered squad has so far dominated their league opponents, coming away from matches with mostly easy wins. Training for the team began this summer, and before the season had even begun, senior Will Nolan commented on the team’s dedication to a successful year by hitting the field almost every day during the summer. We have been practicing every Monday and Wednesday as a group with organized games against other (local) teams and doing our own training on the other days,” Nolan said in August, just before the team resumed official practice. Since officially commencing the season -- and taking training to an intense six-days-aweek, plus games – the summer’s hard work is paying off. The only game where the Huskies have had a standout challenge was in their first of the season, when they held off Montrose to take home a 2-1 victory. “The season is going pretty good. We are undefeated and playing so well together,” says senior center back Erick Briones. “This is definitely one of the best teams that I have played with. In every game, this team won’t back down from anything.” Discounting the Montrose game, the Huskies have come away with margins of victory much greater. They took home a 6-0 victory over Steamboat Springs, an opponent they have struggled against in the past. After the Steamboat game, Briones says that he and the team started to notice their potential to do more than any previous Battle Mountain team – and that’s saying a lot in perspective of the Huskies storied program, which has won multiple league championships. “We beat Steamboat 6-0. That has to be one of my favorite games,” Briones says. “We never get that many goals against Steamboat, and after that everyone knew that this year

Erick Briones (dribbling), a senior at Battle Mountain High School and a member of the Huskies so-far undefeated varsity squad, plays with the JV team during practice at Freedom Park in Edwards. Zach Mahone photo. was going to be exciting.” Experience and ambition This year the Huskies are starting eight seniors on a regular basis and have two more in the relief rotation. It is the most senior-dominated group the program has ever had. These seniors have been to the playoffs twice. Last year they played their way into the quarterfinals of the state playoffs, the furthest any BMHS boys’ soccer team has ever gone. They have played each league opponent twice for three years and seen both struggle and success. With each game, Briones says the team gets better because they get to know each other better. Each player finds out how other teammates work, he says, and after years of playing together, they can finally capitalize on that. “We talk a lot about teamwork and trusting one another,” Briones says. “Every day we have practiced together, we learned what we could all do. In the games, we know what we can all do. We go to work for one another.” The team also spends time together off the field, and head coach Dave Cope has seen the season come together with that much-sought-after factor – team chemistry. “This team has a chemistry coming from years of playing together, being together off the field. That’s huge,” Cope says. “Team chemistry is an important factor, and work ethic is next – and this team works hard. Then there is talent, which this team has. Team chemistry, work and talent have put this team in the position they are in.” In the time they have spent together, Cope can pick out pivotal moments in the team’s history that has prepared them to deal with any challenge they may face this season. For instance, last year the team came away with an exciting victory against a good Glenwood Springs team in which they only found themselves ahead in the last minute. Exhaust-

The art of healthy cooking

Halloween Candy Buyback

Columnist and cookbook author talks fresh eating By Melanie Wong

For anyone who has ever thought that healthy cooking means trading flavor for lower calories, or that it takes too much time and effort, Martha Rose Shulman begs to differ. The Los Angeles chef, teacher and culinary writer is the author of scores of cookbooks to date, her latest being “The Very Best Recipes for Health,” published in 2011. Shulman’s column in the New York Times, “Recipes for Health,” details surprisingly simple, concise recipes for home cooks, using fresh ingredients, produce and plenty of herbs and spices. You won’t find much in the way of processed foods or substitutions in her recipes, and that’s what has made the column popular, hitting the “Most E-Mailed” list on the New York Times website multiple times. Shulman visits Vail as part of Vail Restaurant Month this weekend for several events at Vail Village’s Terra Bistro. On Friday, she’ll host a demo, and Saturday, she’ll lead an interactive seminar focusing on foods you can take hiking. Don’t expect any granola bars on this outing – the menu includes spring rolls, quinoa salad and frittata, and the class will finish off with a hike and picnic. Cooking for a crowd For Shulman, her love affair with healthy cooking began long before it was en vogue to be a celebrity chef or to have your own cooking show. She’d grown up learning from her mother, who was a talented cook. “In my early 20s, I was cooking all the time and not sure what I wanted to do,” Shulman says. “One day I said, ‘This is it.’ I wanted a restaurant, but didn’t really understand the business of a restaurant.” Instead, Shulman started a dinner club, inviting 30 guests at a time to her home to try out different recipes. Eventually, the clubs led to a catering business and teaching a vegetarian cooking class in Austin, Tex., in the ‘70s. Even then her focus was on healthy, gourmet dishes, a novel idea at the time. “In those days, chefs were not a big deal like they are now,” Shulman says. “But I was always interested in health and wanted to combine the love of good food with an interest in health, and I think there’s a way to do that.” Some of the most formative years of Shulman’s culinary development came when she moved to France. As she says, she and a friend went for an “open-ended year” – Shulman ended up living in France for 12 years. The dinner clubs continued, and she was inspired by the French simplicity. “People think of French cooking as this really rich cuisine. The thing is that it’s really pretty simple. It refined my palate,” Shulman says, adding that in addition expanding her recipe repertoire, she learned much from the French food culture itself. “All French women work and still cook every night. It might be a simple veggie soup and a salad. When I was there, I discovered so many wonderful kinds of vegetables. Today (in the U.S.), our own farmer’s markets are

equally inspiring.” Healthy eating made simple Shulman’s approach to cooking is simple: Use lots of fruits and vegetables, all as fresh as possible. “People think of eating healthy as deprivation, and it’s not,” Shulman says. “For me, it’s about eating healthy and eating produce. You can really have a sensual feast, and it can be healthy.” Shulman used to be a vegetarian, but now her diet includes fish and some meat. It’s not so much the label as the quality of the food she finds important, she says. Eating local usually means the ingredients are fresher – she tries to avoid commercially raised meat and use free-range eggs because both taste much better. You’ll also find a distinctly international flair in Shulman’s recipe books. She gets inspiration from her travels and likes to adapt traditional staples from around the world to the American kitchen. “Look at where dishes have been popular for a very long time, and you’ll also find very healthy dishes,” Shulman says. “Take Provence (in France): A typical dish is veggies bound with rice and eggs. It’s nutrient-dense and delicious to

eat. It doesn’t taste like health food.” Shulman’s travels, and thus her culinary inspirations, have taken her all over the Mediterranean, as well as Mexico. She lists some of her favorites as Greek and Turkish cuisines. Shulman’s goal with all her classes, demos and cookbooks is to get people excited to cook at home, and to teach them how to use herbs, garlic, spices and the food itself to make a great-tasting meal. “I think the whole celebrity culture of cooking, on one hand, has made people interested in food. But there’s also nothing wrong with cooking a simple meal,” Shulman says. “You can make a good salad and omelet and have it with a glass of wine and have a very good dinner. You don’t have to have a brigade of people prepping ingredients for you. People shouldn’t think of it as a burden – they should want to spend 30 minutes making dinner. Its fun, and its worth putting time aside for.” SneakPEAK editor Melanie Wong can be reached at melanie@sneakpeakvail.com

Late Night Eats When the clock strikes 10 p.m., all hope of finding a good meal is not lost. By John O’Neill

A

pang of sorrow ran through the Vail Valley at the sad announcement that Denny’s in Avon would soon be replaced with a Walgreens. With nothing against Walgreens, Denny’s held a special place in the heart of most every up-valley resident for being the place to smash down a late-night and often not-so-sober meal. Denny’s was open 24/7, and it was glorious.

Other restaurants in the valley may be delicious, but they seem uniform in closing down before 10 p.m. All of the grocery stores in the county also lock their doors at 10 p.m. or before, leaving fourth-meal fanatics rummaging through their own desolate food cabinets to find maybe a can of old soup. However, even without Denny’s, a good meal in the later hours can still be found, and not at drive-thru. Although few and far between, select restaurants are serving up local and late-night grub. Here are SneakPEAK’s top picks.

Loaded Joe’s employees Sarah Langston (left) and Anthony Trombetta work the bar at one of the valley’s few late-night grub options. The bar/coffeehouse recently debuted a new dinner and late-night bar menu. Kent Pettit photo. The baristas and bartenders, who are often the same people, serve breakfast all day, right up until the doors close. One of our favorite breakfast items is a standout sandwich that is layered with tender-belly bacon. “You’ll never have bacon as good as this,� says Mason Miller, one of the folks who might greet you behind the bar. Tender-belly bacon is made from pigs that have plenty of room to exercise and have lived a stress-free life. Happy pigs make for great bacon, they say. Miller says that Loaded Joe’s is keeping their menu as wholesome as possible. All of their eggs come from cage-free chickens and their ingredients are pulled locally whenever possible. Loaded Joe’s goes beyond breakfast, too. They have a selection of salads with the option of adding free-range chicken breast, all-natural hanger steak, sustainably farmed salmon or even popcorn shrimp. But the sandwiches are the real highlight the new menu. And if sandwiches highlight the menu, the Colorado lamb burger and hanger steak Philly would be the celebrities. All the sandwiches are served with shoestring or sweet potato fries. The problem of late-night hunger, however, may be solved by the menu’s finger foods. Grab a fry basket with sea-salt shoestring, sea-salt sweet potato, lemon-pepper Parmesan shoestring and rosemary-garlic sweet potato fries. Important: The Avon menu is not available at the Vail location. The Vail location does serve food until 2 a.m. but with a pared down menu that includes lighter dishes such as a pita-and-hummus plate, chips and pico de gallo, hot dog and chips, and more.

Local Joe’s Local Joe’s, located in both West Vail near Vail Run and in Riverwalk of Edwards, understands that sometimes a 1 a.m. pizza delivery is necessary. Nearly around the clock, they open at 11 a.m. and don’t close their doors or stop their deliveries until 2 a.m. Kids under 21 are welcome to enter the establishments to order food, too. On most game nights or after weekend celebrations, West Vail residents descend on Local Joe’s like starving vultures. There is usually a good crowd and a friendly bartender who’s happy put in a pie right up until the last minute. Employee Bronson Killpack of the West Vail location says their late-night services make Vendetta’s up a good portion of their business. Menu choices include pizzas, salads, sandwiches and Enjoying the fresh, hot Italian treat that is Vendetta’s pizza is an experience hardly unique appetizer items such as wings, mozzarella sticks, mac-and-cheese bites and their special to the frequenters of Vail’s Bridge Street. On weekends, the two-floor restaurant packs out cheesy garlic bread. as one of Vail’s favorite dinner spots, and if it’s after 10 p.m. the pizza bar likens itself to Loaded Joe’s - Avon warzone chaos with folks shouting pizza orders from wherever they can stand. The crew behind the bar, though, has an unusual knack for picking up on who is yelling Take note: Loaded Joe’s is not Local Joe’s, despite the similar names. Nonetheless, the coffee shop/bar and Avon’s favorite late-night hangout has reformed their menu and now what, and still manages to serve everyone in a timely manner. keeps its kitchen hot until at least midnight.

Man of the Cliff event returns

Fourth annual competition set to be the hairiest yet By Phil Lindeman

like Denver-based Stranahan’s whiskey. “We like to think that Stranahan’s embodies the outdoor spirit of Colorado – it is Colorado’s first whiskey, born in the mountains and made from barleys grown right here in the Rockies,” says Pete Macca, Stranahan’s general manager. “And an event just doesn’t get any more rugged and mountainous than Man of the Cliff. It’s a perfect fit for Stranahan’s to be there, and it’s a great opportunity for us to give back to our community.” In keeping with the community focus, all proceeds from entry fees go to First Descents, a Colorado nonprofit that gives young cancer survivors access to activities like whitewater kayaking and other outdoor adventure sports. The organization has been involved with Man of the Cliff since the beginning, and last year, it received nearly $12,000 from the event – up $4,000 from 2010. The weekend is also a huge draw for spectators, with no cover charge to watch and live music from local group Hardscrabble, vendor tents like Bonfire Brewery (including the event special “Woodcutter Pilsner”), and drink specials at Mango’s. There’s also a sober transportation option through the Turtle Bus for $20 round-trip with advance notice. The whole thing boasts a friendly, small-town party atmosphere, and Williams wouldn’t have it any other way. Lodging is available at Red Cliff’s Green Bridge Inn, or campgrounds are also plentiful in the surrounding areas. “This is a chance to try something most people don’t do often,” Williams says. “People know this isn’t a cutthroat competition. They show up, have a couple beers and have fun raising money. Everyone cheers everyone else and has a great time.”

“Gentlemen, start your beards.” Like bushy facial hair, the advertising tagline for Man of the Cliff is hard to ignore. Now in its fourth year, the annual “weekend lumberjack” event in Red Cliff on Oct. 6 and 7 celebrates all things burly and manly, from hatchet throwing to keg tossing to wood splitting. And, of course, plenty of escapism. “It’s really an outlet for a lot of people,” event founder Adam Williams says. “We see emails from a guy who’s at a law firm or working in an office, and they don’t get out of their element often. They may only own one pair of Carhartts or worked with a chainsaw once in their life.” Williams expects this year’s event to be the largest yet, drawing an estimated 120 participants and hundreds of more spectators from across Colorado to the parking lot at Mango’s Mountain Grill for two full days of friendly competition. There’s an overall score-based title for participants who take part in every event, as well as options to compete in team or small individual events for a smaller entry fee ($5 to $10 on-site). Cost to compete the entire weekend is $60. Registration is available through the event website at www. manofthecliff.com and open until the event weekend. Although Man of the Cliff teems with testosterone, it isn’t solely for men. Williams claims a handful of women join in the fun each year, sporting fake beards and flannel to rival their male counterparts. He has watched the event grow steadily since 2009, when it began as a small-time affair to celebrate the waning days of fall with lumberjack-themed competitions. He and a few friends discussed it over a campfire and beer, and decided it would appeal to like-minded outdoor fanatics. It’s now a SneakPEAK reporter Philip Lindeman can be reached at huge boon for the town in October, with big-name sponsors philip@sneakpeakvail.com

LATE-NIGHT EATS –––––––––––––––––– The pizza hotspot serves their full dinner menu until 10 p.m. before cutting back to pizzas only, and that isn’t a bad thing. Their generous slices of cheese or pepperoni have the capacity to fill you up. The pizza bar cooks specialty pies right up until close, too. Try the Snow Pig pizza, is piled high with Canadian bacon, pepperoni and sausage. Vendetta’s is, after all, a bar. So late-night admittance into their pizza paradise requires you to be 21 with an ID.

In the second wave of war against post-10 p.m. hunger problems, Magustos has a selection of pizzas and burgers to help you win that battle every time. A Gorgonzola bacon burger and supreme pizza are not bad weapons to keep in your arsenal. Eagle, Gypsum and Edwards… sorry It appears as though down-valley folk and Edwards residents will have to make an eastern journey to get eat a meal after 10 p.m. if they don’t want to drive through and peruse the gourmet menus of Wendy’s, Burger King or Taco Bell. In Edwards, though, there may be hope. A new joint, Gobi Mongolian Grill, located across the parking lot from Fiesta’s, is rumored to be doing a variety of Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese food up until midnight or later. However, they are currently closed for the off-season and don’t reopen until November.

Magustos Magustos is a Minturn gem, and that gem is often named as a local favorite for late-night food. Their kitchen is open until 2 a.m., and they will cook, serve or deliver right up until that hour hits. The Magustos menu features bar-style appetizers such as chips and salsa, fried ravioli, poppers, mozzarella sticks, wings, potato skins and more.

Weekend of cycling rolls into Vail Pro criterium, Copper-to-Vail ride and time trial to test riders By Melanie Wong Riding in on the success of the USA Pro Cycling Tour, more cycling pros are set to arrive in Vail this weekend for the Tour of Vail, a three-day cycling event that includes a pro criterium race staged in Vail Village. The criterium, a timed, closed-circuit road race, will be held on Sunday, Sept. 30, and promises to be exciting for spectators, with riders flying over Vail Village’s cobbled streets and taking the sweeping corners at high speeds. Pros competing at the national level will be racing with $25,000 on the line. “It should be an exciting weekend,” says Dieter Drake, race director and president of cycling event company Anthem. “It’s pretty much an all-day affair for both amateurs and pros, men and women.

Saturday will feature a noncompetitive road ride from Copper to Leadville, over Tennessee Pass and Battle Mountain and ending in Vail. Boulder-based pro cyclist Timmy Dugan will join cyclists for the Saturday ride as well. This is the first year that the Tour of Vail has come to town. The inaugural event was kick-started by the Vail Valley Partnership (VVP). Chris Romer, executive director of the VVP, says the town’s promoters were looking for events such as the tour that would match the area’s reputation for outdoor tourism and recreation.

“All the various events we recruit, from Season of Song (music festival) this weekend to the Tour of Vail to the Tough Mudder, are done very strategically and match the Vail and Beaver Creek brand,” Romer says. The presence of pro cycling events, from the Beaver Creek stage of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge to this weekend’s criterium, are reminiscent of the Coors Classic, an international stage race that went through Colorado and Vail in the ‘80s. “The Tour of Vail itself is part of a larger series (the USA Crit Series) and should be a really cool event being right in the Village,” Romer says. “It will be matching some of the history that Vail has with cycling and racing with the Coors Classic.” Drake says the Tour of Vail has been in the works since 2011, and the event company hopes to return in future years to put on the race, maybe moving it earlier in the season. “With a Pro Cycling stage being (at Beaver Creek), Vail wanted more of a sustainable model for cycling events,” Drake says. “I’m a big fan of all the guys who raced the Coors Classic there years ago. I watched them on TV when they did, and now we have the opportunity to bring pro cycling back to Vail.” SneakPEAK editor Melanie Wong can be reached at melanie@sneakpeakvail.com

Gypsum Oktoberfest aims for tradition

Oom-pah, beer and bratwurst take the main stage at festival By Melanie Wong Gypsum’s festival organizers say they decided to not mess with a tried-and-true formula, and will be taking a simple approach to their Oktoberfest. “We’re trying to be a more traditional Oktoberfest,” organizer Anna Englehart says. “All you need for that is good music, food and good beer. You have just about everything under one tent and have a good time.” The festival, a joint effort between the town chamber of commerce and the Western Eagle County Metropolitan Recreation District (WECMRD), will be held at the Lundgren Theater by the rec center. The event starts at 10 a.m. with a 5-kilometer fun run/walk, and festivities go from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., including live music, a special-edition Gyptoberfest beer from Bonfire Brewery, a variety of German sausage from local company O.W.’s Heritage Sausage, a stein-holding contest, yodeling contest, desserts from Alpenrose and more. A local band, the Swiss-Austrian Connection, will provide music. While most of the band members are longtime locals, the group is about as authentic as it gets. Since the late ‘70s, Switzerland native Rosie Burki, her husband have been playing with several area musicians hailing from Austria. The group includes trumpet, a traditional alphorn, drums, trombone, accordion, clarinet and guitar, and they play a brand of music that Burki describes as “oompah and traditional Swiss.” “Everything is traditional,” Burki says. “We play traditional songs from Switzerland, and we dress traditionally. We even got the horns from Lucerne, (Switzerland).” The Swiss-Austrian Connection is a veteran of Colorado Oktoberfests, having played at

festivals across the state for years. These days, the group mostly plays for fun and stays in the area. Burki says she’s excited to see Gypsum hold a European-style Oktoberfest that she says will “go back to the basics.” “Gypsum is trying to have fun as much as possible – have good European food, beer and the original bratwurst. It should be a real nice Oktoberfest,” Burki says. Following the theme of authenticity and tradition, the Gypsum Oktoberfest will also serve a German-inspired brew from Eagle’s Bonfire Brewery. The “Gyptoberfest” beer is a Märzen, a traditional German beer that was brewed for Oktoberfest. Bonfire Brewery co-owner Andy Jessen says the beer is typically made in the early summer and fermented in the cool temperatures of a cave for the season, yielding an amber-colored, clean-tasting brew. While Bonfire didn’t use any caves in their brewing, Jessen says they’ve been sticking with the cool temperatures traditionally used for the beer, and it will be ready just in time for Gypsum’s event. This is the second year the limited-edition brew has been made, and Jessen says it was incredibly popular last year. “Gypsum doubled their order this year. It was a big hit,” Jessen says. “We’ll be making about 13 kegs. We’ll have the rest on tap here, and maybe send one keg to the Blue Moose in Vail. It’ll probably last for about a month.” SneakPEAK editor Melanie Wong can be reached at melanie@sneakpeakvail.com

Running in her place

Local trainer Billy Kuhn runs marathon to benefit client By Phil Lindeman

In more than a decade as a personal trainer, Billy Kuhn has never met a client like Danielle. The Eagle resident, who prefers not to use her last name, suffers from Prader-Willi syndrome, a genetic disorder that can interfere with appetite and exercise. Even on good days, Danielle can’t stop herself from eating – her body and mind simply don’t know the difference between being hungry and full. “She needs a personal trainer to keep her in check and stay alive,� says Kuhn, a longtime down-valley trainer who recently took over as fitness manager at the Gypsum Recreation Center. “Sometimes I feel like she’s even training me. Individuals who have full function will listen to me, whereas the mental imbalance Danielle has can affect her differently from day to day.� On Oct. 21 – just about a year after Kuhn started working with Danielle – the trainer will run in the Boulder Marathon to raise money for Prader-Willi research. Although he has been an endurance athlete his whole life, the event at Boulder Reservoir is his first full marathon and a potential stepping stone to future Ironman competitions. But simply adding a notch to his belt isn’t Kuhn’s goal – Danielle and her trials are always at the forefront. Along with mental imbalances, she has a physical disability that results in bone-deep blisters on her feet. These rule out traditional cardio like running or hiking in her fitness plan, and Kuhn is constantly thinking of ways to challenge her without causing too much strain. When he heard of the marathon, it was a sort of eureka moment. “I have to be creative to help her stay motivated for that end goal of preventing weight gain,� Kuhn says. “With the marathon, my whole point was that Danielle hasn’t been able to train on foot or even walk for four months, so I figured I’d take those steps for her.�

with the disorder, but she still battles with overeating and food hoarding. During her training sessions, she occasionally invents excuses for not exercising – she has an injury, she’s too tired – and requires special equipment, such as a cruiser-esque tricycle to pedal around town. Like any personal trainer, Kuhn pushes Danielle gently, knowing full well that her mood swings unexpectedly between motivated and stubborn. Although supervised exercise is vital to her well being, their relationship is deeper

than an hour or two at the gym. Her struggles spurred him to take a personal interest in the disorder, and he recently wrote a research paper on it for a master’s degree course. When Kuhn told Danielle he was running the race for Prader-Willi research, he was met with a very typical Danielle response: she wondered why, saying, “They already know everything about it.� “If you knew Danielle, you’d be laughing with me,� Kuhn chuckles. “You have to understand she doesn’t really have intense emotions. I told her I was doing this race in her name, and she asked, ‘Why would you even do that?’ She’s very black and white.� The marathon is the first individual fundraising event in Danielle’s name, but earlier this year, the Gypsum and Eagle communities banded together to buy her a new cruiser when her previous one was stolen. Along with Kuhn, the benefit A rare and deadly condition involved the Eagle Ranch Fitness Club, Castle Peak Mason’s Prader-Willi is a rare and irreversible disorder, occurring Lodge, Mountain Pedaler in Eagle and dozens of locals. in only one out of every 15,000 newborns, according to the Prader-Willi Syndrome Association (USA).

The majority of Eagle County is above 8,000 feet, and the unique environment makes everything from exercise to daily chores harder on the body. If you have a history of asthma, Metcalfe says to watch how often you push your body in the rapidly cooling evenings. Once temperatures truly start to dip, she claims even non-asthmatics can develop a mild form of the condition called â&#x20AC;&#x153;reactive airway disease.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a general term used to describe symptoms from wheezing to shortness of breath, and can often be remedied by avoiding overexertion. When a cold climate, thin air and compromised immune system all collide, it can result in a serious respiratory infec-

Grief  is...

A double-edged sword As temperatures begin to dip, high country residents spend an increasing amount of time indoors. MacDougale claims this is both a good and bad thing: On one hand, it reduces the risk of cold weather-related illnesses; on the other, it can lead to entirely new issues. High on the list is Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD, an emotional and physical imbalance caused by lack of sunlight, an important source of vitamin D, which MacDougale labels the â&#x20AC;&#x153;happy vitamin.â&#x20AC;? In Colorado, 300-plus days of sun every year means the daytime hours are rarely gloomy, but longer nights can result in anxiety, insomnia, depression and a lack of energy. Local counselor Cathy Zeeb says SAD can affect anyone, but rec-

ed, the team could have had the week to enjoy that victory, but due to a scheduling quirk, they had to take on the dominant league-outsiders, Cheyenne Mountain, the next day. The Huskies battled for a 4-2 victory over the Front Range opponent. “The guys could have come away with the Glenwood win and been happy with a good effort against Cheyenne Mountain. But they weren’t satisfied with an effort. They came out and fought for the win. Having that fight in players is so valuable,” says Cope. A senior will With their final season on the line, seniors such as Nolan and Briones have brought the matter of finality to the forefront of their motivation to leave behind a fresh legacy of ongoing success. Last year, the team progressed to the quarterfinal, where they lost 1-0 against Evergreen to end their season. This year, they return with a near-identical starting lineup, and Cope has high hopes for the squad. “Typically, every year, you can’t judge from the year before, because so much changes. But this year, with this team, you can,” Cope says. “These players remember each team and each game from last year vividly. They have the experience of winning playoff games. They come off any challenge from last year with experience and are proving to themselves they are a better team.” Briones says that he wants to see his team make the quarterfinals and beyond. In his senior season, he wants to play in the final four of division 4A soccer. Despite their beckoning potential, at the moment, this team has not done anything that other Husky soccer teams in the past haven’t. “I sat them down after a game and said, ‘Everything you’ve done so far, other groups have also done. You aren’t unique yet.’” Cope says. “We are undefeated so far. That’s great. But we aren’t unique. Running the table in regular season would be unique. Making the semifinals or finals in the playoffs would be unique.” With that, the Huskies work to focus on the next game and the next game only. Whether or not this will be the program’s next season yet will be decided in the upcoming 90 minutes of every game. The key to that success, says Briones, is every player knowing and trusting that the others will put everything on the line to succeed.

ognizing the symptoms and being proactive can prevent the worst mood changes. “Knowing how you deal with the change of the seasons – i.e. cooler or warmer temperatures – times when allergies are higher, and the change in the shortening or lengthening of the daylight hours will help a person offset the disorder before it sets in,” she says. As Zeeb hints at, understanding how you’ve reacted to seasonal changes in the past is the best remedy for emotional shifts – if transitioning from summer to winter has had an impact before, it will likely happen again. Along with upping your vitamin D intake, Zeeb also recommends meditation, breath work and simply getting outdoors, even for short bursts at a time. Also helpful is light therapy, a way to simulate the more familiar and comforting light patterns of summertime. “The key is to work on the symptoms before they arise,” Zeeb says. “But if they show up before you have recognized them, then getting into some type of therapy sooner (rather) than later will help.” No matter what season, overall health is the most important part of warding off illnesses. Even small amounts of sunlight can be a boon in winter, but MacDougale is quick to note it shouldn’t come at the expense of protecting your skin. “People tend to think because its winter, the sun isn’t as intense, but you have to take care of yourself just the same with sunscreen and sunglasses,” MacDougale says. “It’s total care throughout the year.”
