Another item was checked off of Andrew’s bucket list yesterday. He has always wanted to go mountain biking in Deer Valley… so we made it over there. I was just going to go out and find a random trail but decided to join the chair lift ride up with him.
But first we started with a fancy breakfast in the car of store bought muffins and a banana.
And then we were off. Andrew loves all the adrenaline that comes with mountain biking and I am scared to death of going faster than 5 mph on one.
We got to the top of the mountain and I ran around the hills up top for awhile (Andrew took a picture before he took off). I absolutely loved trail running here (Deer Valley FYI) because there were a million hikers and mountain bikers out so it felt really safe but also it felt like I was in my own little world because we were so far away from roads/cars.
Climbing up this hill hurt but it will be great training for when I hit mile 7 of my next marathon (Veyo hill is something else during the St. George Marathon).
Lake views. There is just something about trail running that is good for my soul. I think a trail race will be next on my to-do list.
Lots of single tracks through the trees.
And then I finished off before Andrew was done so I just hung out with my feet up. I forgot to push start again after my first stop so I have no idea how far I went but my legs felt like jello afterwards. J.E.L.L.O.
PS I love this little finish line that I came across. I want to finish a race here.
Andrew got a tad bit lost while he was out. He ended up in a crazy area and had to use the number on his wrist band for the Deer Valley people to come find him. They did, hallelujah. That little mishap meant we finally got to lunch at about 3 pm. We were starving but El Chubasco was there for us when we needed them.
If you are ever in Park City, I always stop here… they have a salsa bar there with like 12 different salsa options that are all delicious.
Chicken fajitas for me. They were everything and more.
We then hurried over to Andrew’s parents house to get ready for a wedding that was in Eden, Utah. I had never been to Eden before but it was amazing… it was a little valley with mountains surrounding the entire town.
Andrew’s good friend got married and it was beautiful.
And so was the pie bar. I mentioned on IG yesterday that Andrew doesn’t like pie (it makes zero sense to me) but he even loved these pies. The groom’s mom and sister made ALL of the pies for the wedding.
We finished off the night by watching BYU play Utah in football. Andrew went through at least 6 very intense emotions throughout the game. I had more fun watching him than the game.
And I got this picture of Brooke yesterday. She is having the time of her life and until we get our kiddos home we will just keep quoting them and talking about them and planning for them and telling each other funny stories about them.
In memory of those who died 15 years ago today, I personally want to spend some time remembering those innocent victims and being grateful for those who are serving our country and protecting us from terrorism.
Anyone else against pie? Have any that you do like?
How often do you hit the trails for a run? Prettiest trail run you have ever done?
Park City people… where is your favorite place to eat there?
