I first have to tell my two amazing friends CONGRATS on completing (and doing it fast too) the Squaw Peak 50 miler! This race has over 14,000 feet of elevation gain/loss over the 50 miles and they rocked it. I went and watched them finish and it made me really want to do a 50 miler someday (not this particular one though because that elevation is a little intense for me).
Amazing and strong women. PS one has 5 kids and the other has 4 kids!
The Blend Retreat started nice and early (I stayed at home and drove up to Park City each day) with a bootcamp class and I never want to do a burpee or push-up again in my entire life.
We finished with a plank competition and I made it to 3:10 but there were girls there that made it to OVER 6 minutes… so awesome!
Lindsay rocked it… her baby is 7 weeks old (I didn’t start doing ab work until Brooke was like 1.5 years old).
After an awesome breakfast with the best potatoes and chicken sausage we met back outside for a hike. I have never been to a blogger retreat thingee before and I didn’t know what to expect but Blend really must be the best one offered. Fitness, food and talking for hours with each other in a super relaxed setting.
This is the best way to hike. Take a gondola half-way up the mountain and then start hiking.
We hiked around The Canyons ski resort (it made me want to get back into skiing again) for a little under two hours and the views were breathtaking.
There were girls that came to Blend from Canada and all over the United States. Many even had their first Cafe Rio experience while here, I am so proud.
After the hike I made it back home to my Brookers and she made a new friend at the park. This girl needs a dog.
I just really like her.
Once all of the kids went to bed I had a high school reunion with two of my favorites. This is a 1984 Jeep and this is what we drove around in throughout all of high school. Many good memories.
I have one food picture from yesterday. My friend that lives in Hawaii goes back home today but she gave these to me before she left. They are perfect because it is totally appropriate to eat half the plate for a late night snack and the other half for part of breakfast because it is fruit and fruit is healthy.
Ski, snowboard or neither? Favorite resort to ski/snowboard?
Who has done an ultra before!?! Who wants to do an ultra?
Ever met up with other bloggers? At a conference/retreat or a meet-up?
Best thing that you have eaten this weekend so far?
