Trail running at it’s BEST!!

Happy Spring!  I am back after another WEEK again!  Geez!  This will be a catch up post with lots of pictures!!  I’ve had a busy couple of weeks. The school play was especially time consuming.  Add my personal training and my own training for Boston and loads of day to day “to do’s” and I about fall apart.  ABOUT is the key word!  Never will I really fall apart (:  Mostly, I want to talk about the 16 (close to 17) mile trail run we did on Saturday.  It was at Antelope Island.  LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!  Here are some pics!  We started out on the chilly, windy side, but right away the sun came out and the weather couldn’t have been better!

Just to throw a few stats out there!  I am now 40 and I move up to the next GREAT age bracket.  My time was 2:49.  About 10 minutes faster than last year.  I was 6th in my age group (would have been 15th in the “OLD” age group) and 82nd overall out of 300.  I’m good with that!

Well!  We have Spring Break this weekend and many other FUN and much needed events coming up!  I do have 2 fashion pictures to share.  First outfit: lunch date with my friends.  Second outfit: Me and my son!  He had on a new suit yesterday and wanted a picture with me.  Ohhhh…how I could eat him up!!!  He’s getting so BIG!
