The Teton Dam Marathon

As some of you may know I have being running to get into shape but I have needed a reason to keep going becuase I am not a fan of just working out for no reason. So I decided to sign up for the Dam Marathon so yes that would make me a Dam Runner.

I am not a very good runner and haven't ran since High School like my Sophomore year which was a very long time ago. So I thought the 5k would be a very big challenge which in case it was. I started running around the end of march in Vans and James said I needed to get real running shoes. Now I hate the look of running shoes, I think they are ugly but I was able to find some cute pink ones so I was off and running.

The date of the race was June 13th and it was so much fun. I never thought I would be able to ever do this. Now I want to run an other one. Crazy I know I am just not the running type but it was such a cool feeling to be part of something and finish something big.

On the way up to the race!
Running past James. He was such a good supporter. He encouraged me the whole way and was the best fan. I love him so much and could not ask for a better supporter.
I did the whole race in 39 minutes when I thought it would take me over an hour.


Well as most of you may know I am coaching and playing Frisbee. I love it so much. It is a great workout and you get to be part of a team. I also have the best team becuase they work hard and have become great friends.

In these pictures I was just coaching and not playing so that is why I am not dressed out but the girls talked me into playing so I am now.
We played the Spartans and kicked butt.
We had a small team to start out with but have grown. We are the best looking team might I add!

The Zoo

Well a couple of weeks ago we went to the Idaho Falls Zoo with some friends. I have been wanting to go but between Frisbee games and rain we have been putting it off so we finally went. I had to so much fun. It was only $10 for both James an I to get about a deal. So we snapped a few pictures of the Penguins(of course), Monkeys, Lion, Tiger, and some other funny looking animals. I totally want to go again becuase it was just that much fun.
