After four months of training the MINI MARATHON is done! It was such an amazing feeling to cross the finish line. I never thought I would be able to run that far because in high school I could barely squeeze out a mile. I finished in 2 hours and 9 minutes, running just under 10 minute miles. I was sure that my hard training would make the 13.2 mile journey easy, but I was wrong. My body was exhausted and 1 1/2 days later I am feeling it! My body aches everywhere. The weird thing is my upper back and shoulders are the worst. (I thought my legs would be the most sore. :)

My friend Brittney from nursing school ran with me and helped push me to finish. I am so grateful I have her to help me during these nursing school years. I'm pretty sure Heavenly Father knew I needed a good friend. I don't know what school and life would be like without her.

Jeff, Summer, Baby Taylor, and Porter (Brittney's boyfriend) were all there to support us. It was so nice for them all to be there for us. Thanks guys!

I feel like I can do anything I really want to do, and I am so happy to be done training at least for a little while :)

JefF's DisAStER

I made Scotch-a-Roos for a nursing bake sale the other day and Jeff loved them. We decided to make another batch to take to a friends house. Jeff helped this time and the results were not quite as good as I had.

Jeff was in charge of stirring while I added ingredients. As I was getting the Rice Krispies the mixture began to burn, but Jeff had no clue. He just kept on stirring while it turned dark brown. Of course when I saw it I freaked out and blamed him for ruining the dessert. He felt really bad and was disappointed that his treat was burnt. We still pored out the mixture but as you can see, it was a little HARD! To make his day worse, I made him wear the pink shirt:)
Fortunately, we had enough of all the ingredients to start over, our Scotch-a-Roos were delicious and Jeff was a happy boy again!
