Problem is...they've gotten progressively unhealthy.

Wasatch Back

Last week I experienced the Ragnar. It was my first time doing the race and I loved it so hard.
24 of us signed up to do it, so we had 2 teams of friends which means 4 vans.
I ran leg 6 and I loved my runs. The first one was a steep downhill run in the mid-afternoon about 8 miles, my second was at 11pm and was a gradual incline for another 8 miles, my last was a little baby easy run, really flat and about 3 miles. Our team clocked in around 26 hours. The miracle/awesome part was that both team's final runners finished together. Pretty perfect.
I couldn't believe how fun Ragnar actually was. Hilarious, focused, hard, sore, sweaty, sleepless, and let's do it again.

i went disposable again

When I scored my Dad's Konica and bag of film I also got another (probably expired) disposable! I slid it in my purse and pulled it out as occasion permitted. I love getting disposable film developed. It's such a surprise and I forgot what I had taken. This covers quite a few to bottom: me on my birthday (gross burnt chest and all), backyard smores with boys, fro yo run after a Bee's game, St. George for Memorial day weekend, karaoke bar, photos with Willard, staycation with my favorite people.

Every Tuesday we go on a hike with our ward. Last night we hit Bells Canyon. It was my favorite hike yet and this is the second year of our weekly hikes. It was so beautiful. I kept kicking myself for not bringing my camera. Never again.
On the way back down we saw 2 moose within 15 feet. I was equal parts excited/awestruck/nervous. We also saw the storm moving in and it looked like the clouds were in fast forward they were moving so fast. Nature is amazing and I needed to stop to take it in. Remarkable colors, pure sounds, and clean air.

I can't wait to do Bells Canyon again! This time with camera in tow.

My dad gave me his old Konica AutoReflexTC film camera.
This is my first roll with the camera. It makes beautiful sounds.
I have lots of practice to do, but luckily lots of my dad's film too.

locations: seattle and salt lake city

bringing the sunshine in

no sun this weekend, only storms.
it was a total bust and i really needed a day outside.
I made strawberry, apricot, chia muffins this morning.
And I made a bowl of tropical oatmeal.
It has pineapple juice, almond milk, water, oats, egg white, crushed pineapple, banana, and unsweetened coconut. Really the burst of sunshine that I needed. Thanks breakfast.
