Thank goodness for technology. I think Brooke would be a little too homesick while we are away if she didn’t get to see and talk to Billy on Face Time a few times a day. She did accidentally hang up on him twice though.
Brooke was quite the social butterfly at the retreat and made friends with every single person there.
A big group of California girls here for the retreat:
And of course friends that I met through blogging.
After we last talked we had a self defense course, a nutrition course and also a class to help with positive thinking. I feel 80 times smarter after all of these classes.
This is the main building where most have the activities have gone down. Just a little pretty.
Buffet. Carbohydrates. Chicken. All of my dreams combined on one plate.
Dinner was held in the main club house and it was delicious.
I hit the sack at 8:53 p.m. while watching the Cosby show.
Say a little prayer for me today… between the altitude, wind and hills I may not make it out of this race alive. Have a fabulous Saturday.

Sending you positive thoughts!
Why would you walk when you can run?
Have a super run!!! :)
You’ll be fine! Good luck! You’ll kick butt!
Tee hee use that positive thinking and you will most certainly. That is how my race is tomorrow. So much wind and snow LOL.
Good luck! I think the competitor will take over and silence the altitude and other elements.
Good luck with your race =) That place is beautiful! And those pasta dishes are to die for!!!!! Yummy!
You will do amazing!!! Wish a retreat like this was offered in New England…what a fun girls weekend!!

Aw, it’s so sweet that Brooke and Billy have been Face Timing. My in laws love to do that with my fiance’s niece and nephew, and the kids have a great time doing it, too. It sounds like the conference was a big success! Good luck at your race tomorrow, I’m sure you’ll kick some serious butt. :)
Good luck, Janae!! You’ll do great-all that stroller running, right?
Good luck Janae! You’ll do great-just have fun! The scenery there is breathtakingly beautiful.
Kick butt this morning! You will do awesome. The faster you get done, the faster you get to tell Brooke all about your race! =)
Natalie @ Free Range Human
Have a great race! I know you’ll rock it!
Good luck with your race today! You’re gonna do great!
I’m glad you’re enjoying your time there!
That is certainly something I would love to go to one day! It sounds like EVERYTHING I would want in a retreat and the place looks beautiful!
You look so tan! It might be the color of your shirt, but you look like you are just off from a weekend in the Bahamas. It doesn’t look like you are using fake tan, and if you are I can’t tell.
Nikki @ run+breathe+be
I would LOVE to go to one of these retreats. Have a great race!
You can do this in your sleep. What a fun retreat, I should go there some time.
Your retreat looks amazing! Good luck in your race :)
Rachel @ Undercover Diva: A Sitcom
Good luck! Brooke is so stinking cute! I can’t even handle it. so glad you’re having so much fun! Jealous of all of these fabulous ladies you’re meeting!
All those pictures make me homesick for St George. (can you get homesick for a place you only lived for 2 years?!)
I fell asleep while watching TV with Ross before 10PM. And I didn’t wake up until little Evan came and woke me up at 8:15AM. Yep. I am tired. I guess getting 5 hours of sleep all week can do that to you?
And of course you will do great!! Even with all those odds stacked against you, you will come out on top because you are always AMAZING like that! Good luck and have fun!
The retreat looks like so much fun!! Good luck at the race today, I bet you’re going to do great! Good luck! :)
Wow, your hair looks amazing and super healthy! Also, what kind of lipgloss do you use that doesn’t get caught in your hair??? Or does it and you just still wear it anyway?
You look beautiful in you shirt!! So glad you choose that one. Super fun to meet you this weekend!!
Janae how do you get your hair so shiny??? It’s gorgeous!
And please come cut my bangs, I love yours.
Give that sweet girl lots of love from me and g.
Good luck today, I know you’ll rock it!!!!! :)
Debbie @ Deb Runs

I’ve only met one other person through blogging. Living in Alaska doesn’t help. :/ Can’t wait to hear how the race went!
Renae @ MissFit Mixed Chick
That place looks beautiful and the food looks amazing!
I already read the post race blog post so I won’t say good luck, haha, but I’m glad you had a great day before the race!!
Looks like you guys are having a blast! I need to find a career that allows me to rock toga pants all day every day!
