Well, this was a new experience. In the morning I did 7 miles at an 8:34 pace on my normal treadmill and then after lunch I got to try an Alter G —> anti-gravity treadmill for a little bit.  I have wanted to try these treadmills out for a long time.  It was awesome and it felt different than I imagined it would.  I will go more in detail about what it felt like/how it works on Monday (with a […]

I’m glad they put up with me. A little exploration at the Tracy Aviary in SLC and Brooke said, ‘chirp chirp’ a million times. The looks on their faces make me very happy. Wendy’s isn’t that bad:) A little walking around Temple Square. The coolest bike we have ever seen. It isn’t physically/mentally/emotionally possible for Brooke to walk by a water fountain and not want to stop and play.   I think I am all ready for fall now.   […]

The absolute best medicine (except for the part that I tripped on a rock).

Brooke and I slept at my mom’s house last night so that I could get up early and run the trails.  Ummmm my body no longer remembers how to get up and workout early anymore.  Josse and I were talking this morning about how we used to meet every morning at 5 to run…  how did we do that? Maybe someday I will be in a position to workout early again but for now I will continue to just fit […]

My personal/non-blogged about life kind of exploded the other day and it has been a ‘put on a happy face until you put Brooke down for bed or a nap and sit on the couch and cry’ kind of a week.  Why do I share things like this… to remind you that you aren’t alone when you are going through tough stuff, life is hard sometimes. Brooke and I should have just stayed at Disneyland because life was pretty perfect […]

THANK YOU FOR SENDING IN YOUR PICS!!! Love them all! How awesome is Brooke’s group finishing their 5k as a rainbow! Melissa sent in a picture of her and her crew at one of her favorite races, a 10 miler!  They were Captain Hook, Tiger Lily, Peter Pan and Wendy!  Also pictured is their friend with a sombrero.   Ummmm VALERIE… I love your Buzz costume!   Katie and her friends dressed up as Power Rangers for a 10k!  Halfway […]

Ways to my heart, Brooke wants to move and looking tough.

Brooke wants to move to a farm.  There is no denying this fact anymore.   She chased around the goats giving them hugs and feeding them for a good 20 minutes straight. Brooke and I crashed Paige’s family activity and joined them at Hee Haw Farms.  I had never been here before but it is now added to our list of fall traditions. They had pony rides, tractor rides, a huge slide (above), petting zoo and a playground.  I think […]

Rewind to last Friday. We got to go to lunch at the Facebook campus!  I was blown away by how awesome it was.    I rode a bike (the bikes are all over the place and you just pick one up and go) in heels without crashing, I am proud of myself.   Okay, let’s talk about the food because we all know that was the most important part for me.   The street in the center of the campus […]
