Color Me Rad

So although April, Brittany and I all ran in the Color Run earlier this year, another color run came to town this past weekend and we decided we simply could not pass it up. So we barely trained, made a couple tutu's, coordinated our outfits and showed up to run bright and early at 9am (without any coffee mind you). While I thought it was a ton of fun and a great challenge I think I liked the Color Run downtown a little more. I swear the colors were brighter, the course a little more challenging and the finish line: way more of a party than this one was. So that one comes again in February and I think Chris and I will definitely do it. Who can pass up the opportunity to wear a tutu while getting blasted with colored cornstarch?!

April and I, we couldn't find Britt =(

Valley of Fire

 I love this place. My family used to camp here when I was little and when my parents said they were camping there over Nevada Day weekend, Chris and I jumped at the chance to join them. Both Shelly and Kathy (with their respective husbands) joined us as well (although judging by my pictures you wouldn't be able to tell that). We hiked and hiked and ate some great food and then hiked some more. It was the first time in a long time that I have been active for several days and although my body was a bit sore I couldn't have been happier.

This shot took me a good 10 minutes to get, but it was totally worth it

First hike of the day with Shelly!



I like to pretend like the rock is going to squish me. I will never grow up apparently.
