Oh, How Much Fun Can A Girl Fit Into One Weekend?

^^Crazy morning excited/'what the crap are we doing' eyes!  Just before we started our race.  Haha.^^

 What I did on Saturday and Sunday:

::  A HALF MARATHON: Saturday morning, my good friend Amy and I were up before the sun to travel to Pocatello to run the Just Cuz Half Marathon.  It was a really fun low-key half marathon.  The weather couldn't have been more perfect.  And I was just a tad bit giddy running past trees in full yellow blaze.  It was so pretty!  On top of serving Jack Daniels at mile 11 (No, I didn't partake.  Yuck!), the race included five mini challenges to earn colored bracelets.  I stopped at various mileages to do ten burpees, squats, and push-ups, climb over a truck, drag a 45lb sled, and eat five giant marshmallows.  Miraculously, I didn't puke from that.  Instead, I finished 13.1 miles at a personal record time of 2:02.  My goal was to finish in under two hours, but the challenges set me behind a few minutes, so I'm feeling pretty good about it.

:: ROCK CLIMBING:  A couple of hours after Amy and I arrived home, our babysitter showed up and Bron and I met his brother Kaleb and his cute fiance, Chantee, down at Dierkes for some rock climbing!  I wasn't about to miss out on that adventure.  No way!  I happened to choose a route rated as a 5.10.  But I did it!  Wow.  No wonder I woke up Sunday morning completely sore from my neck down to my calves.  Nearly every muscle in my body ached!  But it was worth it.  Oh, so worth it.  Rock climbing is such a blast.

:: DATE NIGHT:  After climbing, the four of us went out on a double date to Johnny Carino's where I think I ate my weight in carbs.  ;)  It was so fun to talk and get to know Chantee better!  I think those two have a bright future ahead.  I'm so excited for them.

:: CHURCH: Self-explanatory.  I stayed after for a half hour to practice my violin with the choir.

:: ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS: I took the two lovebirds up into the South Hills for a photo shoot.  I absolutely love engagement sessions.  They're always full of smiles and fun and the love just shines through.  These two were no exception and good-looking to boot!  A couple of sneak peeks below.


Even though the weekend was busy, it was full of people and fun; I wouldn't have it any other way.  Thanks for challenging me to complete another half marathon, Amy!  And thanks for coming out to visit us, Kaleb and Chantee!               

^^I love this photo. He TOTALLY wants her!^^
