Marathon #6…

Posted on February 14th, 2015 by Jess Run/Hike/Bike

Yup, I did it. My twin and I registered or my sixth marathon and her second. We will be running the Fargo Marathon on May 9th. I wasn’t planning on running another marathon this year, but I am really excited about it. We are going to run it together and just have a good time. […]

SLC to PDX at Sunset

So I typically travel with camera in tow.¬†Even from a plane, when it is so much easier to just use a phone to snap a picture of the sunset, there is something so rewarding about taking the opportunity to pull out the behemoth from the bag and dial in the settings. Here are a few […]

Yellowstone in January

As Jess wrote earlier, we visited Gardiner, MT and Yellowstone a couple weeks back for some R&R. It was a great weekend! We hiked around Mammoth Hot Springs, ran a snowy trail, soaked in the Boiling River and relaxed at the Gardiner Guest House. Here are a few pictures from my viewpoint.

A Foggy Morning Drive

Lonely Bend

While in Oregon last month, I shuttled a car from Portland to The Dalles for my uncle. I decided while I had the time, I would take the scenic route. The Columbia River Gorge, specifically the stretch between Portland and The Dalles is a beautiful treasure trove of waterfalls and vistas along a historic highway. […]

I arrived in New Orleans in the later evening last night. I didn’t have much time to do anything but have dinner and a short walk with my co-worker. This put us back to the hotel at about 11 o’clock last night. I was exhausted after a long day of traveling. Tonight, we were able […]

Brent and I took Christmas Day as an opportunity to hit up our favorite running trail, South Cottonwood Trail. We had a blast that day enjoying the snow.

Mountains Singing

Brent and I took the time last weekend to getaway. We wanted to just take a weekend for ourselves, so we headed over to the next valley. We are lucky to live close to Yellowstone. No matter which way you decide to go, we are only an hour and a half away. We had a […]

The morning started early. We woke at 4:15 am in order to get me to the airport by 5 am. It’s been long overdue for me to visit Oregon for longer than just a couple days, so last month I booked some tickets and now here I am, sitting in Powell’s books in Portland. For […]

Nike+ 2014 Running Review

Posted on January 6th, 2015 by Jess Run/Hike/Bike

Nike+ sent me this video giving me a review for my runs in 2014. I didn’t log all of my miles and I didn’t have a good marathon year, but this is still a fun video. I am excited to see what 2015 brings. Not sure if I will run a marathon, but who knows!
