Provo Halloween 1/2 marathon

It was a perfect day for a fall run which took us from Aspen Grove down to the Riverwoods shopping center in Orem... Yes, it was quite the downhill course :)
One of the highlights were all the costumes! Aren't you proud of Matt for dressing up??

Matt came in first at 1:40; Leesa came in at 1:42; and I came in at 1:48.

Yes, my husband ROCKS!! I am very lucky he's mine:) He came in 292nd overall and I came in 523rd overall; Just a mere 231 people behind him... no wonder I couldn't see him in the crowd! 
Oh yea, this is out of 2879 runners!not too shabby :)
My great running partner and friend, Leesa Jones. We have been running for about 5 years and we hope to continue for many many more!

Pumpkins with...

The kids had fun giving their pumpkins a "personal" touch this year. 
Luckily, they were blessed with creative genes from their Dad :) 
Good thing I'm around to take the pictures, right?!

Happy Halloween!

XC STATE MEET 2010 at Sugarhouse Park

14 years old, a freshman, running against 150 of the BEST RUNNERS in the STATE... Was she NERVOUS? 

 It was a VERY TOUGH course with LOT's of HILLS
 KILLER hills!

Jac ran hard and did her best to stay strong. It wasn't her best race. It was actually an "off" day for her. Frustrating? Yes, especially when it's your last race of the year. BUT this is how life goes...she now knows what it feels like to have a "bad" race day. 
"Bad race" is all relative of course since even on her "off" day Jac came in...
17th place!! 
 One of Jac's many gifts is that she is TEACHABLE . She learns from her experiences, good and bad. She has such a positive attitude. She knows she had an AMAZING season. She is proud of what she has accomplished. With that said, she is not afraid to be honest with herself, find out where she can improve and work hard to prepare herself even better for next year. Watch out runners, she will be READY! 
We are so PROUD 

Coach Rowe and Coach Hays 
Coaches can make a HUGE difference. We have been so grateful for their passion and dedication to helping every person reach the full potential.

This team has had so much fun together. I have been amazed at the caliber of people the XC team is made of. I guess it just shows you that runners are AWESOME! hee hee
True friends are priceless; luckily,this team is full of them!
