The first of many to come...

On Saturday I ran the Revel Big Cottonwood Half Marathon with Jenn Godfrey and Celeste Godfrey.
This was my first half and let me just tell you how much I LOVED it!!
I really did. I loved the course, the finish line, the aid stations, the temperature differences (below 30 to 70's), the pain, the sweat and even the wall I hit at mile 11.
We finished with a chip time of 2hrs 16 min 10 sec making out pace avg 10:24. Definitely a PR!
Bill was hunting so it was great to have Grandma and Grandpa Ellett bring all the boys down to watch me finish. It definitely helped to finish strong.

I'm excited for my next one, or should I say ones. We registered for the Grizzly challenge which is the Yellowstone half 6/13/2015 and then Teton half 6/20/2015.

In the meantime I get to keep training for Las Vegas Ragnar in November!!

stating the obvious...

I have been a crappy blogger.

That is stating the obvious.

I can't seem to keep any goals related to blogging.

Another obvious.

I'm really hoping to do better but I'm just going to see how it goes. I downloaded a bunch (and when I say a bunch I mean 900+ pictures) Hopefully I'll get them sorted and start to back post as I feel in the mood. But for now, I will post the last couple weeks.

I will be updating the blog once a month or so from now on. This is my new goal. So to start us off I will be posting pictures from our Cruise we took in March. Then hopefully Easter Camping and then a random picture post. For today I'll leave you with this wonderful picture-  photo 276b652f-ea62-4f03-bd33-c2b377572f70_zps3366c626.jpg


In trying to finish the yard this year I have been working on the garden. Now when I say working on the garden I mean clearing out an area of weeds and grass for my raspberries to be planted. I didn't actually plant anything. I did have 7 spontaneous potato plants pop up out of the ground.  photo Picture374_zpsf0ec0fce.jpg My big helper!  photo Picture373_zps2d07e8ee.jpg
