It's been quite a crazy 4.94 days.
If you want to see a real write up click here [ yep here ]
Loved finally getting to see Dawn again. [it had been a whole 4 months]
soooo happy when I saw her pull up at the airport.
Then I had 2.44 hours to talk her ear off all the way to Pokey.
Then I got to talk all three girl's ears off.
Then we did that blogger photo thing.
Then we went to that mandatory expo thing.
Side note because I'm an idiot........I get tapped on the shoulder by this guy who says, "you ran the IMS AZ marathon"
Me: yep [hello it IS my PR race!]
Him: you passed me at the end. You like kicked into turbo and chicked me at the end.
Me: [thinking Jamoosh would be so proud] Want a rematch?
Him: [laughing, like did she just say that?] yes
Me: deal. See you in February.
this conversation may or may not have made my day. [Holy. freaking. made]
Then . . .
holy. freaking. potatoes.
[side note] there is no where to eat in Pokey. And according to our server, "no demand for Italian food". Soooo... Bring your own food. unless you can eat Mexican food, ice cream or a burger the night before.
Even though I probably drove Dawn nuts........
i. loved. running. with. her.
She has this photo but I was trying to motivate and trying to NOT talk her ear off.
She kinda tried getting rid of me a few times but I wasn't having it.
Happy. Finish. Line. Girls.
PR for Dawn.
PR/BQ for Erin.
Enjoyed seeing my family at the finish line. [holy. huge. smile. right?! See my PRR tats? Loved them.]
Two of my uncles passed away within a week of each other so----not the best of circumstances but . . . . loved that there were there.
My family loves Dawn just as much as me [I'm pretty sure my mom adopted back in December when we met.]
Got a sweet photo with Haley.
Have I mentioned her kids? Holy. heart. melt.
Dawn and I enjoyed a nice dinner together in SLC then off to see her crew.
They. are. awesome.
One more yummy breakfast and my girl's get-a-way was over.
On one hand WAY too soon.
On the other . . . . was ready to see my Pita & Peanut.
Just kinda wishin' I'd be able to see all these awesome women again on 9/17 [Top Of Utah Marathon].
I kinda have something to settle with that race.
