Blazin' Barts

Wasatch Back 2010 has come and gone. Even though it's weird eating, weird/minimal sleeping, and crazy running I LOVE it! I'm actually a little sad it's over for the year.

Robyn called clear back in the fall to see if I wanted to run on a team with Joe's family. I had no intention of putting a team together this year but still wanted to run so I said yes immediately. Even though it was Brian, me, and the in laws it was so much fun. I really did love it.

most of the team (minus Brian) at the start line

van 2 spent the morning relaxing and eating at Brian's house

before it was our turn to run. right before my 1st leg. van 1 was happy to be done

thanks Marci for decorating our van

my last exchange after a 6 mile gradual climb. this night exchange was amazing.

we did a lot of sitting and waiting when it wasn't our turn and saw some beautiful scenery.

the whole team at the finish

This was my 3rd year being runner 8. It just gets better every year. I know what to expect, and it really helps me. I ran better, stronger, and faster this year and was actually pretty ok with my running. It seems crazy to think about doing it again, but I really hope someone has an extra spot on their team next year.

I've been wanting to go to a REAL Salt Lake game forever, but it never seems to happen. It finally happened this weekend. I went with Laurann to the game. The team didn't play so well, but it was still a lot of fun.

Someone once teased me about being a princess. I'm not sure I meet the criteria...

1. I run races...lots of races, and I'm running another Wasatch Back this weekend. Anyone who can spend basically 2 days in a van and run 3 times over the course of 24-30 hours with minimal sleep and food is clearly not a princess.

2. i own power tools. no comment about how much i have used them so far.

3. this is my hand after putting the chain back on my bike. a princess would never have hands that look like this. it might be possible that my fake nails cancel out putting my own bike chain back on but not the greasy hands.

4. i put together this shelf all by myself. so what if it only required a few nuts and bolts and a screwdriver. it went so well i even bought some IKEA furniture. don't ask me if it's put together yet.

so...maybe i sleep in big diamond earrings the night before a race and wear heels to the grocery store, but does that really make me a princess?!?! i think i gave up that title a few summers ago to become outdoor girl .

Bounce House

My friends had so much fun at the bounce house a few months ago so we decided to go again. Unfortunately my camera battery died at the beginning of the night, but we all had lots of fun acting like kids.
