Okay, so I know Boston is only 20 DAYS away (wait, what??) but I got really exciting news yesterday about my fall marathon plans… I am officially running the Chicago Marathon!
We woke up bright and early yesterday morning and after I got in 9 miles on the treadmill we hit the road again. Utah is seriously beautiful! Please excuse the dirty windshield – and focus your attention on the sweet rock formations.
After 5 hours we crossed the Colorado border!
Henri was really impressed with the mountain views!
I have to agree with him – these mountains are gorgeous!
You’d think being in a car for 9 hours would get boring but the time really flies by when you get to stare at nature all day long!
We got to my sister’s house a little ahead of schedule and took the pups to the park with my brother in law. It was such a treat for the dogs to be able to let off some steam after being cooped up in the car all day!
A homemade meal, some snickerdoodle-chip cookies, and a little Netflix topped off a great evening catching up with my sister and brother-in-law. Oh, how I love family!
Have you ever run the Chicago Marathon? What did you think?
What is your favorite kind of cookie?
I had never even thought to put chocolate chips in my snickerdoodles but my sister is a genius and it is AMAZING!
