Ready to be dumbfounded?
('Cause I know I was!)
Yesterday, the husband and I ran our first 9-miler EVER!
Last weekend I topped my "most mileage ever covered at one time" when we did our 7-miler,
but 9 miles was quite the feat.
Especially since now I feel certain that I can complete the half-marathon without keeling over at the 10K point.
What half-marathon you ask?
(Except you're probably not actually asking this,
since It's all we talk about...)
Jake and I are training for the Bear Lake half-marathon on June 9
and we're stoked!!
Running a half-marathon is one of those things I've always wanted to do, but never thought I actually could.
Then one day I decided... "why not?"
went to the computer,
found a training schedule
and never looked back.
(or forward. Because if I think about how long I am actually
going to be running during those long runs,
I start to get anxious and psych myself out!)
It's been such a great experience
getting to spend such quality time with my husband
during these months
where we haven't been able to see each other much.
Not to mention, it has helped me to stay SANE during the busy-ness which has been this entire last school-year.
Thanks to my honey for always being by my side.
Even when it's visibly sweaty after a long run. :)
On another note, It was neat to be by my husband's side as we
went and met up with a bunch of his old mission buds
last night at The Pie.
It was such a fun time getting to hear all the stories
I haven't actually heard yet
(seriously... it was refreshing to hear a new take on things..)
and I loved chatting with all the women there!
After Jake and I left, we were talking to ourselves about how great it was to be with such a righteous bunch of people.
The kind of people who make you want to be better
and really think about how you're living your life.
On this Sabbath, I want to thank all of my friends and family
for being that inspiration to me.
I love you all for always inspiring me to be a better person
and I hope that one day
I'll be able to give back to you the way you've given to me.
Love you all!
And with that,
here are some pics...

|Add 5 spouses and 1 & 1/2 babies and you can see how many people we crammed into that small corner of the restaurant! It was awesome. I love commotion like that!|
