The sunset. These two.
Life is pretty good.
|Someone might enjoy the bread as much as his mom.|
|That sunrise, though.|
|Forgive the blur. Quality is kind of hard to achieve while trying to maintain pace.|
I want to know what these people do.
|I wish the pictures did the hills, both up and down, justice. They don't. At all.|
|Mile 10 felt so good I was compelled to snap a picture of the mile marker. This is usually where I want to keel over and die.|
|The last downhill portion - half mile from the finish line.|
|The first arrow is the downhill I knew would eventually become the most horrible uphill (decline of 100+ feet in less than .25 miles).|
The second blue arrow is miles 7.5-9.5. The longest two-mile hill, ever (incline of 300+ feet in 2 miles).
The red arrow is mile 12 (the reverse of the first blue arrow). The incline felt as if I were trying to run straight up a ladder. It was also the mile where I thought my legs would give out and I would fall over and die (incline of 100+ feet in less than .25 miles).
|The biggest thank you to Scott and Marcus for all the support and encouragement.|
|At first I was pretty disappointed with the 1:56 finish (my PR is 1:51:16) but when I took a look at the numbers, and breakdown of other runners it hit me just how difficult the course really was. I'll take 98th overall, 21 in my gender division, and 6th in my age group.|
|Scott takes my selfie shots so seriously.|
|The "V" grades coincided with bouldering.|
The 5 grades indicate top roping.
|Rock shoes. Cute, no?|
|From left to right:|
Getting all geared up.
Dipping my fingers in chalk. Your hands get so sweaty!
Studying the wall, analyzing which rocks I would use.
|While I won't tell you our grand total, saving $71.72 was pretty much AH-MAY-ZING.|
|Those anchors would make the most amazing Christmas ornaments!|
|Dear Santa, Just go ahead and send me all the sparklies.|
|We have the brush roll and it is perfect for our arts and crafts paint brushes. Pair the bag with some paint brushes, washable paint, and paper and viola, a perfect gift for any art-lover.|
Those hand stamped pendants would be great for any mom or grandma!
|So many choices! Love 'em ALL!|
|Those banners and garland strands! Yes, please.|
Those little knitted hats? I die.
|Babies, toddler, fitted tess - all shirts are custom made!|
I'll take an Iowa, a Kansas, an Iowa + Kansas = Cali, and throw in the United States for good measure. Please and thank you.
|So. Many. Choices! Over 100 bands to choose from. I'm eyeing the "Will Run For Wine"!|
