It's that time again!

Racing season! I guess it's actually a little early, but not if you head down to sunny St. George! The weather was absolutely beautiful. It was hard to train for a half marathon in January with all the inversion and ice, but it was well worth it. Thanks Casey and Tish for your fantastic hospitality! We owe you!

Don't you love how they take pictures of you during the race? Seriously, I did NOT want to know that I looked like this. My pictures were hideous.

I love Parker in this one though. He ran about 20 yards with me to cross the finish line. Then for 30 minutes after the race he kept telling me how tired his legs were from running a race with me :)

Nice job Keri on your first half marathon! You're ready to do a full now!

Nice job. I will do another half marathon some day. I don't think I will ever do the full thing though. It would take me 6 hours to finish.

Go you! It is seriously the cutest that Parker loves to finish your races with you! What a heart-breaker that one is.

I don't know if I would say it was FUN, but it was an experience! I don't know about a full marathon, but I want to do another half! I'm doing a 10K in Zions in April, you should come down!

We need to talk! I just got into running and I am loving it. I now know what all the talk about it is. My goal is a half marathon this year, I just don't know which one to do? Call me when you get a second.

Jill! I just got caught up on your blog. It was so fun to see all the pictures of your WAY CUTE family! The snow one made me laugh and laugh! Good job on the run! You're inspiring!!! Oh, and Jackson weighs TWENTY pounds!!!! That's right! TWENTY!!!! He was in the 50th percentile for weight at his last appointment. I can't wait to see what they say for his 9-month one!
Love you!
