Last weekend was one of the funnest, craziest, most exhausting two days and I would do it all over again in a heart beat!  Two weeks before this was all supposed to happen, I got a excited phone call from my girlfriend telling me a spot opened up on her team.  Because I had been training for a half marathon she knew I would be ready to go.  Nick was great and agreed to let me do it, he was hesitant because it costs so much--"you're paying how much to run for 2 days and not sleep?!" Let's just say this is my birthday present this year.....
I knew Connie and I work with Lindsey, the team was mostly made up of Lindsey's ward. I told Nick I was so lucky to meet awesome people.  I really am so grateful that 1. I even had the opportunity to do this  2. I was in shape and ready to do this with last minute notice.  As much as I'm looking forward to doing it again next year, I'm hoping I won't be able too cause I'll be pregnant or have a baby.....
