Two weekends ago I completed one of my goals on my bucket list! I have a few lists and will be posting more about those later.  Cameron & I drove up to Lake Powell which is partially in Arizona and partially in Utah.  It was a crazy trip and took a lot longer due to some road issues we didn’t expect, but we tried to look up 🙂

Saturday morning was race day and I met up with my awesome race partner Lisa! Pretty sure I had to pee 5 times and was trying to stay warm as I shivered in the dark waiting for our race to start. Luckily my two best boys were their to support me!

Cam was photographer for the day and also captured the start of my race on video… more to come soon! He is such a great support to me and I love him more and more each day! I also grabbed two images from the race photographer Lucid Images UT; amazing work! Check them out here!

After the race, Lisa and I were pretty sick and extremely tired but we both placed in our age groups which made up for the shaking muscles and need to throw up… again. I placed 4th and was thrilled to have that accomplishment for my first half marathon! Thanks Vacation Races!

I pretty much locked myself in the bathroom and took a long hot bath then slept the rest of the day.  Sunday we packed up to head home but first took a gorgeous stroll up a race trail to grab some pictures.  Looking back at how far I ran the day before really hit home for me and made me grateful for my healthy body and that it puts up with all my  training, dancing, etc.

I love the pictures of Duke and how happy he was to run with Cam and play in the park.  He has so much energy and I love being a mom to that furry boy!
