Number 5…


Is alive!!!  Go Team Blue!


Well, we did it.  Becky and I have now run 5 half marathons together over the last 5 years!  Amazing really.  Amazing that we’ve run that many races together.  Amazing that we’ve done it consistently for 5 years!  Wow, 5 years has gone by fast!  It was my 7th race and her 8th. Lately, before every race I think to myself, “Hmm, isn’t it time I try to do a full marathon?”  And promptly after my race I remember why I haven’t ever attempted that!  Sore legs, tired body.  Maybe one day, just not yet :).

Special congratulations to Brian!  Way to knock out your FIRST race!  I’m so proud of you!  And us sea-levelers survived.  7700’ is quite the elevation change for us east-coasters!  We hyper-hydrated at the advice of a friend of ours from church and it definitely seemed to help.


I must say that this race was by far the prettiest one I’ve done.  It began in beautiful Ouray, CO (pronounced your-ay).  It’s considered the Little Switzerland of America.  Cute town, gorgeous surroundings.  And ended in Ridgway, CO.  There were pretty views  all along the race course.

We enjoyed some yummy Mexican food after the race before we made the 7 hour drive back to Santa Fe!  Fun fact (well, fact in that it’s true to me): Ouray had the highest concentration of Jeeps & Land Cruisers of any other town I’ve ever visited!





More about other parts of the trip to come.


Friday Who’s Who-Answer


Congratulations to everyone, but CJ…

Debbie is on the left, Becky is on the right! 

A few observations:

  • I look ridiculous and very “goody-goody”
  • Becky has her typical “evil face” on
  • Becky is thinking, this is stupid, I don’t want to pose for this picture
  • I’m thinking, ooh, I’m an angel, I’ll do just what I’m told
  • What was my mom thinking with these dresses??!!  Yikes
  • I bet the dresses were great for spinning! (girls you know what i’m talking about)
  • I like our ruffle socks
  • I remember loving the frilly headband
  • Is anyone else diggin the awesome 80’s wallpaper in the background?
  • My mom was the artist that made the two wooden art pieces on the walls
  • We had those table and chairs until I was out of college…and they were a garage sale fine to begin with!

I’ll try to get another picture posted next week!

Who’s Who Answer


Well, thanks for all the guesses.  I admit, I wasn’t 100% confident knowing which one was Becky and which one was me.  But I’m pretty certain now that I’ve got it figured out.  Brian and I debated back and forth and his argument was pretty convincing which is why I’m pretty confident I know the right answers.  Oh, and my mom confirmed that I got it right, so you know it’s right!

Most of you don’t know this, but my right ear is slightly misshapen and when I was a baby the middle of it stuck flat to my head.  What made the first picture difficult is that I couldn’t see the right ears very well.  But from what I could see I can confidently say that:

Bald babies answer
That’s right.  I’m on the left and Becky is on the right.  You can see Becky’s normally shaped right ear and although I can’t see the other right ear the fact that baby on the right’s ear is normal is a dead giveaway. 

The second picture was a lot easier because in my opinion Becky and I were beginning to develop more into what I think we look like now.  So without further ado:

bath time answer

I wonder what my mom or dad was doing that was so funny to make us all look up and smile?  Mom…wanna fill us in? Hehe!

Thanks for playing!  I’ll try to do this every other week or so if I remember :). 

Friday Who’s Who?


After an almost 2 year hiatus (think, September 2009) the Friday Who’s Who has returned!  And what better way to kick off my little game again than a blast from the past?!  You think you’re good?  You have two chances to test your skills.

Leave your guess as to who’s who in the comments.  =)  I admit I had a hard time figuring these out myself!

bald babies
Indeed we were bald until we were about two.  In fact, this picture makes me think of aliens.

bath time
Thank you butterflies for making this picture PG-rated :o)  We used to love bath time!

Good Luck!!
