Ragnar Las Vegas

This past weekend, I ran the Las Vegas Ragnar Relay (195 miles) with a great group of girls (most of them are in my ward at church). It was so freaking hard! On top of no sleep, the course was super hilly, and at night we froze (it was about 40 degrees)! I'm so glad I did it, but I'm so glad it's over!

I posted this picture first because..... dude, the guy is running in a speedo! He has a great body, but still, a speedo?
There were 12 of us on a team, but this was van 1, the group I ran with all 31 hours that it took us.
Here are just a few of our exchanges.......

Sherry and Linda.
Linda, rocking her first 9 miles!
Rachel and Dana.
Allie made every run look so easy!
A couple of me on my first 9 miles, yikes!

This was the only picture I took at night. It was so cold, I couldn't even function! This is Juli planning on riding her bike next to Dana.
Early the next morning. Dana handing off to Allie.
This is Sunshine's sister in law, Erin, running a 10 miler! She really was amazing!
And the whole bunch of us after we finished our 195 miles in 31 hours. We placed 11th in our division of just girls (there were only about 30 in our division). There were 1000 teams, but most teams were combined girls and boys.
Anna and Jamie after the race.
Sunshine and Juli.
Dinner late that night at Macayos.
Ear candling in our room Sunday morning. We set the smoke alarm off and......
.......finished outside!

One crazy weekend!

Schnepf Farm

What a fun night we had with the family out at Schnepf Farm! Just some of the highlights!

The train ride (before they made it a haunted train ride).
The Carousel of course! A lousy picture! You can sort of make out my 3 boys on the left.
We normally let the kids ride the ponies, but I didn't want to stand in line, so we just watched.
Eric & Pace coming out of the slide.
We sat and watched the pig races. My hot mom and sister cheering them on!
Carrie took my sweet Cade on the Honey Bee ride. He loved it (and I think she did too). Giggle
Eric & Pace on the roller coaster (in the front)!

And, face painting!
