Road Trippin’ and a 70/10 ride/run weekend!

on July 31, 2017

Hi, friends!  Hope that you have rolled through Monday like it was nothing 🙂

We had some normal Monday-ing to do today (laundry, unpacking…17 loads of laundry. I kid. Kind of.).

We got back last night from our whirlwind weekend get-away.

It allll started last Thursday….Ken was set to finish up at the Outdoor Retailer show at 3ish in Salt Lake City. Because he rode his bike there, he either needed to fly home, rent a car or get picked up. We opted to pick him up and pop up to his parent’s house for a long weekend.


Thursday was mainly filled with driving (I did sneak in a 3 mile run before we left!). It took Brooke, Jasper and I about 6 hours to get from Steamboat to Salt Lake. My little passengers were incredibly well behaved! We met up with Ken and he drove the 3.5 hours up to his parent’s house. It was a long day in the car and everyone was happy to get out and run around when we got there!

Ken surprised me with this beauty!


On Friday, we were up and at them early to head up to Jackson Lake for the day. We all had an amazing time hanging out on the boat and playing on the paddle boards. I am not sure who had a better time, Jasper or Brooke!


Totally normal to have your 65 pound dog in your lap in the car, right?!


The views, though. Cant even put them into words.

















Um, yeah. Relaxing so hard.


Singing Moana songs. Excellent.


Four of us on two boards. Sounds about right!



Driving with GrandBob!!




We stopped for some delicious Mexican food on the way home and enjoyed a spectacular over-tired 4 year old meltdown on the way home! All in a days work!

Saturday started off a little slower. My mother-in-law whipped up some yummy blueberry pancakes to start off the day. Ken and I eventually got on our bikes to head out on a journey! Thanks for babysitting Nene!

We rode the first 30 miles together before Ken branched off to head to the shooting range with his dad. I headed home in a headwind and took the long way to finish off the day with 70 miles.

I figured out how to get some Strave QOM’s! Go to Wyoming!! Ken got the KOM. Ruling the pass!


Spent the rest of the day relaxing! Rough 😉

On Sunday, I dragged myself out of bed for a 10 mile run. I surprised myself with a decent pace and finished up in 1:28 (8:49 average). It is funny that 48 degrees feels so hot when you run.

Got home, showered, ate some food (the reason I was running so fast!) and then we headed off to Church. After church, we had lunch in town before heading home to pack up! Thanks for having us GrandBob and Nene!!

Finished off the day with a 7.5 hour drive home and a dip in the hot tub before bed. My body required it 😉

Today we hit up the pool where Brooke made snorkeling look like childs play. Seriously, she just did it!?!?!? I couldn’t believe it! Grocery….cleaning…all that jazz. Mountain bike for 30 minutes…and then these showed up!

You better believe that I will be doing some sort of running tomorrow. GORGEOUS. Thanks, Brooks!!


Full night of dinner cooking, grading, laundry folding and working on Ken’s legs ahead. I need a vacation! hahahaha. Totally kidding 🙂

    Crazy question … but how long did that ride take your husband? Must have been a couple day ride from Steamboat to Salt Lake, right? Would love to hear about that trip …
