Wasatch 100

This weekend John and Mike ran the Wasatch 100 Endurance Run. I think you have to be somewhat crazy to even consider taking on such a task. The race started at 5:00 a.m. on Friday and they allot 36 hours to complete the race. The race consists of running up and down several mountains to take you from Kaysville to Midway. Karen and I were in charge of crewing our guys! We had a lot of fun doing it. John unfortunately had to pull out of the race at mile 53 due to dehydration (down 10 lbs) and big blisters on his feet. Congrats to Mike who finished the race with 21 minutes to spare. I am so proud of John for making it 53 miles. Most people wouldn't be able to run back to back marathons, especially one that goes up and down mountains. Good job guys!

Baby Nursery Contest

So...we decided it would be fun to enter a baby bump contest to win a your dream nursery from Babinski's Baby or $200 gift card for 2 runners up. We thought we would get creative to see if we could persuade your vote. Voting begins on September 18 and ends on September 30. You will be able to vote online at I will keep you posted when I know what number I will be listed on the web site. We just thought that it would be funny to share with you the "final project". John did a great job being my makeshift tattoo artist. Maybe he has a new career in his future.
