From Maine to California

This is one of my favorite things in my house.  It is a memory board of pictures and postcards of places we have been, numbers from races, baseball stubs, basically wonderful memories from our first five years together.  I enjoy looking at it and remembering the different places we have been, but I absolutely LOVE adding to it.  Adding to it means we have done something else worth remembering. :) I plan on adding many wonderful things we do in 2012! A couple memories below...

 white water rafting trip in Colorado-treacherous!
Bar Harbor, Maine marathon!

I'm sure you are wondering where I am in my header picture.  That picture was taken at the top of Exit Glacier in Alaska.  It was unbelievable and by far on of the best hikes I have ever done.  We were on a Backroads multi-sport trip this past August.  I had always wanted to visit Alaska and WOW, it did now disappoint!  We had an awesome four hour hike to the top of the glacier, and it seemed like we were on top of the moon.  By far the scariest part was seeing how much the glaciers have melted.  Here are some other wonderful memories from our Alaskan adventure!!

Day 2

meals for the past 2 days
Why do I do this to myself?  I have tried cleanses, I simply don't understand how people can follow them to a tee.  They are so difficult.  I always have the best of intentions and try really hard, but eating basically nothing on cleanse days is just too difficult.  I can deal with the shakes, raw vegetables, and a small healthy meal, but no food...come on.  I am currently on day 2 (it's been a struggle, but I've made it.)  Tomorrow is going to be tough, a cleanse day.  Oh, and it's pizza day at school.  I'm going to try very hard.  We shall see....

First Hike of 2012

Plan for 2012... a lot more adventure and we are off to a great start!  Our first hike of 2012 was a 7 mile loop in Carefree, AZ.  75 and not a cloud in the sky! We also did an incredible hike/run up Black Mountain, now that was fun!  It was exhilarating and made me only want more!  Too bad we don't live in Arizona!
