Lately...

Not much blogging, but....

I did a three-a-day last Saturday- 3.1 in the AM, 4.5 in the noonish, and 6.7 in the evening.  The best part was that my mid-day run was this:

Dirty Dash with the husband and Piglet Plunge with the piglet.

I checked out Guardsman for the first time this year.  It was gorgeous and every bit as challenging as I remember.  I only ran a mile and a half up and gained 1,085 feet- for a road runner, that's a lot!  And I was able to keep a 10:52 pace.


We had a team 10K for my Ragnar team- Stoked on Socks.  Wasatch Back is 8 days away and I'm, well, STOKED.

On Monday I ran leg #27 of the Wasatch Back with Darcy.  She's runner #3 and this will be her final leg of the race.  It's a route I've wanted to run for a couple of years and it was fun to actually do it!
I also ran leg #28 with my sister, Cami, last weekend.  We NEVER get time to ourselves, so to run for over an hour and being able to talk uninterrupted was blissful.

Can you tell I'm excited for Wasatch Back?  I'm E.X.C.I.T.E.D.

What are you looking forward to these days?

So so fun!! I love that you live close enough to the course to run some of the legs. That is so awesome!

I also really love that muddy picture of you and your boy. Freaking adorable!

That Dirty Dash looks like so much fun! I'm sure it was a blast. Good luck at Wasatch. I guarantee you will do awesome.

(I'm in northern Utah right now so I'm looking forward to a Slurpee.)

Friend....that picture of you with mud all over your face is AWESOME!! I love it! The other day I was running and wondered about 10 times how in the world you get those legs of yours to churn out those fast miles :) You're my guru!

Can't wait to read your Ragnar report! And how do you look like cute and ladylike covered in mud? Crazy!

It.Will.Be.Fun.
