Just a few words per picture.

May 3, 2014

My only exercise for yesterday = walking around the outlet mall.  

IMG 0831

The mirror surprises her every time.  

IMG 0837

Put my powerade in a soda cup so that I could at least pretend I was drinking diet coke.

IMG 0830

Hit up the Tulip Festival at Thanksgiving Point.  Only like 4 million tulips.  And 4 million people.  

IMG 0854

Utah Run is now open in their new location (211 East State Street, American Fork) so Brooke and I hung out with Sarah and checked out all of the latest and greatest gear.  Sarah is running the half today too!

IMG 0865

First time I have ever gotten a toothbrush in my bag at the expo.  Not a bad idea.  

Any chance that 1225 is anyone’s lucky number?

IMG 0870

The raccoon has to come everywhere with us now.  Even to go get our night before a race pizza. 

IMG 0872

All of the electronics are plugged in and charging.  Worst ever = when your iPod or garmin is dead at the starting line.   The running clothes are ready to be thrown on and like usual I will be stressing all night if my clothing choices are going to be perfect for whatever the weather is going to be in the morning.

Time to go celebrate a lot of mornings of running at 5 a.m. in the freezing cold over the last few months.

Yea! Have a great run!

Just got back from a 5 miler with my brother. We were going to run with a running group, but got a but intimidated by the other runners there, lol, so we ran down by the canal instead. It’s always a nice feeling to have your long run done before 7am!
