wasatch back: the photo journal

I know I already blogged a little about this, but seriously, looking at the pictures (finally) just reminded me that, while I was totally under trained and sucked it up big time, it was all worth it, for both the surroundings and the camaraderie. I’m not going to say more than that. Oh, who am I kidding? The other thing I want to say is that, while I do not love living in Utah, running this race reminded me that it really is one of the prettiest states in the country. And I think I will probably survive the 16 more months I have of living in this state (more specifically, this town) full time.

So, I know this isn’t the most exciting picture of the bunch, but please note the multiple band aids and the seriously swollen ankles (they are naturally very thin…I promise, they are swollen, similar to what they look like right now, after walking the streets of SF

  1. Hey there, total lurker here. Love your blog and no idea how I found it but I think in a search for bloggers in Utah to get a glimpse of what life might be like there. LOVE the photos. šŸ™‚ My sweety is considering a job there (loves to mountain bike and snowboard and apparently Utah is the bees knees for that stuff) so who knows, I may be making a move out there later this year and it’s great to see pictures of what the landscape is like (very different from Michigan). Anyway, love the blog. Best of luck in the case for both you and your sister. Sounds exciting. PS: if you ever find time to post again would love to know the parts about utah that you’re not so crazy about. Always good to be informed in a cross-country move. :)Have a great week!Faithful lurker, Shawn šŸ™‚

  2. Even swollen, your cute ankles are smaller than mine! The pictures are beautiful- I can just see myself running in those surroundings.Did you end up signing up for Hobble Creek? It filled up- so I am running the Provo River 1/2 on the 9th. But I am thinking of volunteering for Hobble Creek since I haven’t done that yet!

  3. I heart spam bloggers.Love the pics. I have to admit that I didn’t really pay much attention to our surroundings. I was too busy sucking it up. Just kidding. I do think that I would have noticed more had my camera been working though. It’s funny that I am more aware of what’s around me when I have my camera with me.I can’t believe your dainty ankles got so swollen. That’s kind of crazy!PS I’m getting more and more sad we’re not running a marathon together this year.
