Yesterday when I got back from my run (I finished at like 10 pm… how I am a night runner now, I do not know?) I was on the biggest high (because running always makes me a little high, even if I hated the run… I always feel great afterwards).
And then I got a text. Honestly, my divorce/marriage/etc just feels like it was a bad dream now. It feels like it was so long ago already that it doesn’t even seem real anymore and in my brain it feels like the whole situation was just a dream. BUT the text I got last night reminded me how real it was and it made me want to crawl into bed and never get out again.
Luckily, I had something planned at 6 a.m. this morning that I had to get up and go to… Even though I woke up still 100% hurt and upset.
Once again, running and being in nature cured the hurt and within a few minutes of just watching the sunrise I realized that it is all going to be okay. Everything works out and the moment that I start running my whole perspective changes and I realize how grateful I am for the things I do have in my life, rather than feeling bad about the things I do not have in my life anymore.
And people wonder why we run… The combination of nature + endorphins is almost too good to be true.
The amazing Melissa. We have worked together via email for years now and we have met once before in real life at a race but it was so good to spend a good 7 hours straight together this morning/afternoon.
And the creative geniuses.
We went to the one and only island in Utah. Antelope Island. It is surrounded by the Great Salt Lake and it was my first time ever going, it was ridiculously gorgeous.
There were two bison just on the other side of this hill.
I bet you didn’t know that I love purple.
Jaybird (the wireless headphones that I can’t live without) had me up to film a video that is going to be pretty darn awesome. I can’t wait.
Ever seen a helicopter video camera? Me neither until today and I was kind of freaking out that it was going to fall on me but don’t worry, I was not harmed in the filming of this video.

We were on the island for a long long time and so we were famished by the time we were done. We went to their favorite diner (The Blue Plate) in Salt Lake City and they recommended the BLTA for me and it was everything I could have hoped for.
Fry sauce, have you ever tried it? It is a combination of mayo and ketchup (sounds awful but it is really good).
When I was on my way home a train was just stopped in the middle of the road for a good 25 minutes or so. Only in Utah.
Also, I got a ticket on the way up to SLC for going 70 in a 65 area. Traffic school, here I come. PS police officers don’t care if you used to be a drivers ed teacher when you are trying to tell them why you shouldn’t get a ticket. If anything, it made the situation more awkward.

Last time running cured you? From what?
Last ticket that you got? Where? Reason?
Ever tried fry sauce?
What kind of mood did you wake up in this morning?
