Not only do I enjoy a race – packet pickup, swag bag, energy, travel, etc… Reviewing the pictures after is so much fun. I have exceptional kids who understand the importance of capturing memories (and also the importance of taking pictures for my blog…). Perusing the photos relives the experience in a different way. Maybe you see things you didn’t when you were in the moment or you relive the feelings you had. Here are some shots that do that for me from my favorite race.
Chilcoot Frosty on the way home – we boat at a lake here just half an hour from where we live. Best soft serve ever!!
Small, local company that makes us mini bear soaps. Love this!! I used it for my first shower post race at home. Brings a little of that race love after the fact
My finish line picture. I’ve never been sick while running until this race. I felt more awful than I can remember and it lasted 3 more days. My time sucked, I didn’t hit a single goal but I got HERE
Josie. Race Director Extraordinaire. Looks like I’m going to carry her away!! Not a bad idea actually
One of my kids best friends. Her mom was running and I saw Carissa at the finish. SO nice to see a friendly face from home!
There were several families we knew from Reno at the race. Olivia picked me up at the finish line and found a family we knew. Naturally she absconded with their baby.
I didn’t think seeing a goat was a big deal since they have a petting zoo. However this one escaped from a local farm and was chasing runners miles 5-7. Doesn’t everyone have goats in their races???
I just wanted to stand next to Olivia so her shirt pointed to me
Loved this staircase in the restaurant we ate our post race lunch at. Twinkle lights are my fave!!
When something not good happens, Bri always says it’s “poops”. Also, she asks me “why does your face look poops today?? What’s going on”. NO POOPS BRI!!! This sign was on the door of a business
My girls freaking rock!!
Orange you glad I took this picture of Alana???
Ashlea collects smiley faces. This was the night light in the cabin bathroom where we stayed
Showered, dressed and hanging out pre Luau
Flowers by the side of the road
More flowers by the side of the road
Most awesome crank cash register ever!!!!
Me running up to my kids aid station. I love this shot. It shows how pristine and beautiful the area is. In my mind, I’m there…..
