Ogden Marathon Relay

Me and a bunch of my friends decided it would be fun to run a marathon relay! Turns out...we were right! We had such a fun weekend eating out, shopping, laughing (HARD), not sleeping, and running. We headed up to Salt Lake on Friday and the first stop was, of course, the Cheesecake Factory! Sooooo good! Then we went and shopped for a while before heading up to Ogden. We got to Ogden and went to the expo to pick up our packets and ran into about 20 people from Delta. That always happens! Then it was off for more food at the Pizza Factory, then we drove the marathon course. We got back to our hotel and really didn't sleep at all. Thats another story! Anyway, it was up at 4:30 am to get ready to load the bus. It was so fun watching all the runners coming down the canyon. Our team came in 85 out of 130 teams, so I thought that was pretty okay. It was such a fun weekend and we can't wait to do it again!


The Cheesecake Factory!



We had to take a break from shopping to get a foot rub!


"So NOT team Edward" Good job name stealers! They were
39 out of 130 teams!

Go Team Edward!!!!
Tiff, Melody, Kim, Michelle, Me (wishing I would have put
my shirt back on)


Both teams together!

Thumbs up! We're done, we did awesome, and we'll be back
Next year!
I could not have done this trip without my awesome husband. Max and Sydni both ended up getting sick the day I left, but he was a trooper and took such good care of them. Thanks Justin!
