Puerto Vallarta

Fishing at Mismaloya
Palapas at Punta de Mita
Just before we went surfing (and had the crap beat out of us). Apparantly, there was a hurricane not far from here
Beach at San Pancho
Jordan makes friends so easily

We took our lives in our hands riding the buses...this is the bus stop by our hotel
One of our favorite restaurants...Cafe de Ollo

Jordie and I just spent a week in Puerto Vallarta and had a great time. Good food, great weather, and a lot of relaxing. I made Jordan go to a time-share presentation with me and she didn't enjoy it very much. It made it a little better when they gave us about $600 worth of stuff for listening...

We laid on the beach, played on ziplines in the jungle, did some repelling, and went surfing with an awesome lady we met at the airport. We had a lot of good food and made some pretty interesting friends. All in all, it was a great trip and we're looking forward to going back.

Marathon Success!

Well, no gutter-naps this time around. Aside from some pretty painful cramps starting at mile 20, the St. George Marathon was a success. I finished in 4:11 (actual time) and had a great time. I was a little bummed that I didn't break the 4-hour mark, but also happy that I didn't end up in the gutter. My sister and brother-in-law both ran with me...congrats to all. In addition to the marathon, we had a great weekend in the sunshine. Thanks for all the words of support and encouragement, especially from those at the finish line and those running with me.
