We drove up to the finish line, where we parked, and then caught Trax to take us the 25 min to the start area which was at The Legacy Bridge, on The University of Utah campus. We hit the porta potties right away, the lines were long (shocker). We had about 10 min till the gun went off, so we made our way to the start line madness.
Yes, my cute sisters and I wore matching outfits. My sister Janice saw these cute skirts in SLC and bought one for all 3 of us. (Thanks Janni) I made the cute headbands (activeheadbands.com)
The half marathon and the Full marathon start together and then we spilt off at mile 4. So we were able to run the first 4 miles with Greg.
At mile 24.5 we had a long up hill, headed us toward The state Capital. Once we got to the top, we turned left which ran us right past Temple Square. I was exhausted at this time. Oh man I just wanted to be done. Then we took a curve to the right and there was the finish line and my legs took off. I was ready to finish but I wanted to finish strong. This was one of the hardest things I have ever done but was so rewarding at the same time. Our bodies and minds are stronger than we give them credit. I'm so glad I was able to do this race and that I was able to do it with my 2 beautiful sisters. They are the best and I'm so lucky to have them in my life.

I'm so excited I get to run this race with my two adorable running sisters Janice and Maria. They have done this distance and beyond many times. They will be great supports and help me get through the hard times when I just want to stop and I get to cross the finish line with them by my side. It is on April 16th in Salt Lake
9 more days.
So excited and nervous at the same time.
Wish me luck.

Janice and Maria set out to run the Antelope Island 50 miler. That right I said 50. This was Maria's 3rd time at this race and her 5th 50 miler race. It was Janice's 1st 50 miler race. They started the race and then Maria's husband Jason and I went and cheered them on till they reached the first aid station at 27 + miles where we were going to jump in and finish the race with them. Maria got really sick several miles back and it was getting worse as she ran and since she has a 50 miler in Idaho in May she decided to go ahead and stop at that point so that she wouldn't get any worse. So Janice and I took off. It was a very hard thing mentally and physically for her. I mean hello 50 miles so crazy. There was lots of running, walking and even hiking all those up hills. We had a great time and I hope I was a help to her in her crazy journey. She is so tough and hard core I love her. I ended up with my longest run ever at 22.25 miles. A memory that I will never forget. Love you two beautiful sisters of mine.
I don't have any pictures of Maria right now but after Janice post I'll steal some off her blog of those two running together.

Cambree finally learned how to spell all of her name. She has been writing Camb for a while and today she added the ( r ) and so we sat down and worked on the ( e ) and she has been writing her name on everything all day long. It was so cute when she finally got the e down she said to me "Now I can go to pre-school and turn 4" She is growing so fast and I love to see her reaction when she figures something out. She was so proud of herself.

Thanks so our awesome friends Cyd and Ryan Lemone we got to have a fabulous weekend at their cabin right by Eagle Point ski resort and thanks to our other awesome friends Andy and Natalie for being there too. Andy turned the big 40 this last monday so we celebrated in the beauty of mother nature. It was so beautiful up in the mountains with the fresh snow. I stole these pictures from Cyd's blog cause I didn't take my camera so thanks Cyd for documenting this great weekend it was a total BLAST!!!
We went on the tube run on Monday and it was so fun. I was so scared cause you go so fast but once I went the first time it was so fun. You cruz down the huge hill and then we would ride the lift back up. It was a BLAST!
While the boys were skiing Natalie, Cyd and I played with the little girls and the 3 little ones in the snow around the cabin. It was butt deep and so fun to walk through. We also did front flips into the snow. This one is of Natalie
