Saying Goodbye and Pumpkin Pie Filling

Yesterday was a bit of a whirlwind in a completely awesome way.

I taught a kick butt body pump first thing in the morning and then the twins, Tara and I headed up to cheer on my friend Kenzie as she tackled 50 miles of a extreme elevation gain and loss in the Ogden Valley 50 miler race that is put on by Striders.

She did amazing! I’m so proud of her. Fifty miles is NO joke and she killed her time from last year. Yes she is that crazy and did this last year too.

Stole this pic from her facebook page.

Nice job Kenzie poo.

Afterward I wanted to get some running in too. I had some friends that headed up to elephant rock and I was fashionably late and had to run my guts out to catch up with them.

There is something just awesome about running through leaves on top of leaves!

The view from the top was just as amazing as always! This is probably my last time up here for the year. I need to rest my foot and the weather is going to get cold and wet fast. So we all said goodbye to our beautiful view for the season.

I probably ran this trail 30 times this year. I love it that much.

You know my sole sister Tara? She is so hard core, she actually hiked the whole trail wearing a BOOT.. 7 miles!

She broke her fibula! Sad smile And it doesn’t stop her from getting out and doing what she loves.

This morning I posted this pic of my breakfast on Instagram and yes, I do realize it looks like poo.

I made an egg and spinach omelet and topped it with Pumpkin Pie filling and sugar free maple syrup!
