Sweethearts 5K 2010

What a fun run even though my body was far from peak it was fun to be with my running partner again. This was the first race I had ever done and did it with my mom last year. So it was fun to look back and reflect upon all the acomplishments we have done in the last year.
Last year it was all I could do to get there on time. This year I was up at 5am did a 1 hour swim and a GPP workout before the run.
I'm so proud of my mom she has had so much sucess in the last year. Its so wonderful to see her happiness!
I just love Rob and his family. They are such great examples. I can't wait for the Epic again this year. Hopefuly Angie will join the train.
GPP runners! All these people have played such a huge roll of where I have been in the last year.

Even though I had been dealing with sevire IT band issues. I was just happy to finigh with 29:35

Miami Marathon

Jodie and I hoped on a plane from SLC to LGB where we then got onto another plane to FLL. Aside from the creepy guy who wanted to buy my jacket off me and Jodie leaving her laptop on the first fight getting there wasn't to bad. We arrived about 5am. We got in a cab and headed to South Beach in hopes to check into our hotel early we only were just about killed 3 times by the driver that all..An hour to get a rental car and we were on our way. We hadn't had any sleep all night so we needed somehwere to crash. There was no way our room would be ready until 11am. We headed a few streets over to the beech to watch the sun rise and decide what to do...Luckly my great friend Dane let us come bombard his bed at 5am. Poor guy gets a text to let these crazy girls in his room. Jodie and I crashed for several hours.

We got up and got ready to hit the beach to realize it was way to windy and cold...So next best thing we headed out shopping. Later that night we headed back to the airport to pick up Julie and Suz..We are ready for our weekend in MIAMI!

I guess this is what we came for..

We found a darling place to eat breakfast.

northing better than putting our toes in the sand.

After exploring the beach we headed to the expo to pick up our packets.

Julie and I ran the full. Suz and Jodie did the half. Jodie's first

Dane is truly an amzing friend I am so lucky to have become friends over the last few months.

What do they expect us to do with these things while we wait for our car. We headed back to the beach as fast as we could this was our only day to lay out.

Bathing beauties!

OH MY HECK was that water cold

we decided to brave it again but needed moral support

Serious carb loading. I'm still amazed that Julie ate more than I did.

We loved this gold couch in the lobby of our hotel...This was taken at 3:00 am yes it was 5am in Miami but I don't adjust well...

This is the point where I realized I had only ran a total of 12 miles since November

Ready or Not here we come!

People were everywhere it was crazy 22K people

"WHAT THE HELL ARE WE THINKING" was a term used often.

Someone gave us these and I was so thankful we used them for the first mile to get warm.

The sea of people going over one of the first bridges

all the AID stations looked like this its a good thing I train at GPP I'm good at obsticles.

Instead of going into detail about how terrible my run was. I was thilled I got a new lulu lemon outfit and a slight tan.

Julie and I broken as ever but finished our 2nd marathon together.

So glad to have these girls part of my life. They are great examples

5am again ready to head home. TSA loved us..NOT

Our gate was the last one in the terminal so we shuffled down to it only to get told the gate had been moved to one of the first. Once the plane was loaded we sat on the runway for about 45min. with plane problems.

We arrived in Dallas which was our connection to see our place on the runway taking off..After a few hour we finally got on a flight. We were so ready to get home. Such a terrible trip was one of the best trips ever.

St. George Training Ride

I was so lucky to go to St. George and ride with others who area amazing riders. I have a long way to go. One thing I learned though is a true athlete is selfless. It was such an incredible experience. I am so grateful for great friend/coaches Chris, Moka, and Wes truly amazing people.

Chris already wondering what he has gotten himself into with Moka and I aka: PATRIARCH

I don't do well in cars I get bored fast;) aka: CL

We arrived kinda late so we needed to entertain. Moka aka: DG

Wes can eat! aka: GT (Gnome tits)

about 20 miles in we made it to Sand Hallow. This is where the swim for IM St George is....hmmm 2012...Just sayin...

The coolest cycling group!

56 mile bike ride rocked my world even if Chris literally pushed me for 30+ miles. We needed some food and let me tell you we ate a lot of food. Wes called his cute sister to join us. Boys she is single and supper cute!

Pizza Factory Dessert..I think so!
