He says his favorite thing we did was the Fireworks!
Don't get me wrong. Wyoming is some beautiful country with lots to do, but when you have an extremely high energy child who completes more in a day then most families of 5 it is easy to run out of new ideas for spending time.
So anywhoo, we went and surprisingly had more then enough to do. Never felt bored once and enjoyed every minute of it!
I also ended up achieving a small running goal while I was there. Being that I run with a club I rarely ever run alone. I was actually kind of scared to. I have felt that at times I do depend on my running pals too much!
So I challenged myself this week to just get out the door and run. Not have a plan, or definite miles or pace in mind. I just wanted to get out the door, see how it feels and run from there...alone.
I am happy to report, I did it!
here is my weekly mileage breakdown:
Wednesday: 5.5 Miles
Thursday: 4 Miles
Saturday: 10 Miles! (I can not remember the last time I ran 10 alone)
The miles the first 2 days we are an easy pace. Saturday, I started and felt strong so turned it into a moderate tempo with a massive hill climb in the middle. and then let myself relax and feel good at the turn around point and enjoy the rest of the way home easy.
The top of that mountain is where I turned around and headed back. I was so proud of myself I made my mom drive me out there to take a pic! If you look closely in the background you can see some green grass. I started my 10 miler down there.
Who knew, I can run on my own! I seriously thought I had almost forgotten how.

Do any of you dread running alone?
Who has bought their Attica running skirt? I love my custom green and purple one =)
