Marathon Week

With only 4 days left until the St. George Marathon, I thought it was appropriate to re-visit the debacle that was the Top of Utah Marathon last year. As many of you know, I had a little bit of an issue finishing my first marathon last fall (body shutting down at mile 14, passing out, concussion, etc.). However, I still managed to finish the race (with some help from Heather and my brother-in-law Paul), and in a respectable time given the fact that I took a lovely hour-long nap/break at mile 26. Here are a few pics of the event...
Yeah for the paramedics (wanted me to take an ambulance ride)
Thanks Heather and Paul Finish line...apparantly the last .2 miles will get ya'
Chad's not with us right now
This is the most normal picture from my marathon experience. Hopefully, St. George will yield a little better result.

We Love to Eat

Garrett has recently moved on to eating rice cereal. He had a bit of a tough time initially, but has started to get the hang of it and now, he really enjoys it. He'll be eating tacos in no time.

Labor Day Weekend

We had a very eventful Labor Day weekend that started out with a trip to Cedar City/St. George for Troy's football game, golfing, and a little pool time. Saturday was low-key with some friends coming over to watch the BYU game (absolutely fantastic!!!). Sunday, we headed up to Farmington for Tyler Kartchners blessing and Monday, we all went to the Bees game. Not a bad weekend. Garretts first live football game, first BYU football game, and his first baseball game.
