Time Flies When You're Having Fun!

My goodness.. has it really been 7 months since I posted? We have been going 90 miles an hour since then and I have to admit, blogging has taken the lowest rung on my Priority Ladder. Life has a funny way of zooming by while you're worrying about the details.

Let's take a minute to fill in some of the last few months of activity...
Ran my 2nd half marathon in October and shaved around 30 minutes off my time from the Bryce one in July. I am currently training for the Moab Half in March as well as Ragnar (again) in June and hopefully will be attempting my first FULL marathon in September or October.

Doug finished school, passed his journeyman's test in November and is enjoying working with a company he was with a few years ago. The extra money is definitely nice!

I picked up a second side job (besides the scorekeeping thing) this winter combining two of my passions: photography and snowboarding. It's a fantastic gig. I have been taking action and portrait photographs at Snowbasin Resort near Ogden and enjoying the free snowboarding perk that comes with it. Of course, there is also the benefit of seeing beautiful scenes such as this:

So if you've done the math that means I am currently working 3 (yes THREE) jobs. I am crazy. Insane. Mad. Especially when you figure in that I work out/run 6 days a week, getting up at 3:45 AM twice a week to do so. To all those people who say that they don't have time for things, I call bullshit. If you want something badly enough, you will do just about anything to achieve it. There, I'm stepping off my soapbox.

Probably the most exciting thing of the year though is that, to celebrate 10 years of marriage, Doug and I are going to Ireland! It is a place I have dreamt about visiting for years and we both love to travel, so it will definitely be an adventure. I will certainly try and post photos (hopefully it won't take 7 months) of our travels.
