Pictures are Worth a Thousand Words

Share with me some words that come to mind with these pictures....These pictures are from dance parties, Felicita reunions, Movie Premiere's, a mini Romania Reunion and the last weekend with Marshman before he leaves us for two years! I must say I have a pretty stellar life:)

I don't know why but I use a lot of ..... in my writing. I think it is the influence of Clint. He always ends his text messages with that which make me sit there anticipating more.....and usually there's nada:)

What I learn in my Personal Finance Class....

My Personal Finance class is a little bit over an hour long...usually I take notes, look at other people's blogs, if the Professor is lucky I will make a comment or even just observe all the other students in lecture. Today was different. I was on a mission..duh duh duh....a mission to change the background of my blog! I was so excited, I found a really cute background that I loved and thought oh this will only take me away from lecture for about 5 mins to change. Well, lets just say 1 hour and a Computer Guru (Blake) later my background is VOILA!!! You better say you like it....please say you like it.

Sundance Ski Lift Ride

A couple of months ago Clint and I went on the ski lift ride that Sundance does whenever there is a full moon. It was really fun and really cold!!! Even though it was summertime the mountains still get pretty chilly at night. Nevertheless, I still loved it. Just a recommendation to anyone during the chilly summer nights, if you are looking for something to occupy your time, most definitely dress warm, take hot chocolate and enjoy yourself a romantic ski lift ride under the stars and full moon!

Subway Report

I am outraged at Subway!! I went in today to get my usual 6 inch Turkey Sub with all kinds of deliciousness on it and was on Cloud 9...that is until I got to the register and realized they are charging me over 7 BUCKS for a 6 inch with a drink! Ridiculous, I think YES! I remember the days I could get my sandwich, two cookies and a drink all for $5. What happened? Not only are their prices out of my poor college student budget but they gypped me on the veggies. 3 olives really? Since when did olives get expensive. Needless to say Subway has become one of those places on my list that I can only go to if it is for a special occasion, which lets face it, is pathetic and sad.

Marathon Con't

I FINISHED!!!!!!!!!!!!

My Mom racing after me trying to get a picture "Mom, I can't stop if I do I wont make it" I did slow down though so should could get a picture.

After I crossed this glorious finish line I just started to cry....I could not believe that I made it!! THey gave us ice cream after, pretty stoked about that!

The drive home. The moon looked so majestic and I could not resist trying to capture the magic.

My Mom and I! She was my cheerleader the whole way and kept me going! Thanks Mom and Dad and everyone else who cheered me on and had faith in me! I love you!

Favorite Moments From Marathon:

-Met A man who has run 247 marathons...why? I do not know.

-Saw a man pushing his friend in a wheelchair the whole way!

-Another guy I talked to has lost over 200 lbs. in order to make it to this Marathon (inspiring)

-Seeing my Mom at the end and that feeling of accomplishment.

-A 3 yr old trying to get in the hot tub, lifeguard comes up "Sorry, you are not old enough to be in the hot tub, you have to get out." Lil Kid (in that adorable lil kid voice and so serious) "My Mom won the Marathon, I am going to sit in here!!" Lifeguard (laughing) "Well, fair enough."

-Everyone who encourages you along the way.


-That is not Sweat, it's your Fat cells Crying!

-If it was easy I would do it!

-Every wall has a Door!

At all the water stations they had conference playing on loud speakers as we ran through...only in Utah:) But it was actually cool to have that. There is a special unity and bond between the runners and the volunteers. I cannot really explain it but this was a great experience for me to have....and I will never do it again haha! I know really inspiring.

St. George Marathon

“Winning is great, sure, but if you are really going to do something in life, the secret is learning how to lose. Nobody goes undefeated all the time. If you can pick up after a crushing defeat, and go on to win again, you are going to be a champion someday.”

Over the summer I got a crazy notion that I should run a marathon, a full 26.2 miles straight, particularly in the beautiful desert of St. George!!! At the time it seemed like a great idea, something fun to accomplish, a goal almost impossible but in my grasp.....well,l it was in my grasp. Just like anything else when I first started training I was so happy and going running everyday and on top of the ball (this is how most "new goals" in my life start out). I don't want to drag out my runners log and bore everyone so bottom line: School started, I started dating someone and I work all day, needless to say, my training declined, greatly....duh duh duh! About 2 1/2 weeks ago I got encouraged again and my excitement (or adrenaline) increased so it was time to jump on the ball again.

My training declined again but this time for another reason. Who knows what Iliotibial (IT) band syndrome is?? Pick me, Pick me!! Ok, so I actually had no idea what this meant when the Doctor told me. My face looked blank and vacant, like any college student, and very confused. He went on to show me a picture somewhat like this:
The gray part on the left is the IT Band. In lamest terms my knee is inflamed and every time I move my leg, even to walk, I feel a sharp pain go up from my knee to the top of my thigh. Pretty exciting stuff. You can see why my training was put on hold. I have been doing physical therapy and stretches to feel peace again with my knee. It works, until I run, so does that mean it doesn't work? Moral of the story: I am scared out of my mind to run 26.2 miles. I am not looking forward to the pain I will be feeling the whole run...and for days after. Does physical therapy really work?

Even though my time is going to be pretty horrendous I have decided to just be proud that I am doing it and "learn to lose" with grace and style of course!

Update on the actual race to come!!
