Cory and I decided that once the house was listed we needed to take a family break - just us four - and spend some time together. And that's just what we did. We spent the last 4 days at Trial Lake in the Uinta Mountains in Utah. So gorgeous!!
Tuesday morning I was up at 5 to get in my 16 mile long run. It went ok. The runs are getting more painful the longer I go, which is normal. But it scares me that I'm hurting after 16 miles and I'll still have 10 more to go on race day... I guess that's why we train, right? To be honest, this run deflated my excitement for a marathon. It was really tough on me mentally. I'm not even sure why. So my plan is to do some digging and get my motivation and drive back up so I can complete this goal.
Anyway, right after my run I came home, stretched for about 5 minutes, showered, and then we packed up and headed out. For future reference, I DO NOT recommend going on a trip immediately after a long run. OUCH!! I didn't have a choice though, so I tried not to complain. We made it and found a really pretty campsite and set up camp.
fish! It took me at least 10 years, so she's way ahead of the game.
but then setting it free wasn't successful
Ten minutes later she had caught her second fish! This one was much bigger and worth keeping.
Wednesday we decided to try hiking. It was the one thing I really wanted to do, so of course it was the one time Kennedy whined and complained. We didn't make it too far, but at least we got to do a little bit. Ps, notice the hoodie weather. It was amazing to get out of the heat!
The bathrooms had door handles like these:
Time to shower and do laundry and let someone else cook dinner.
