Lake Powell

We just got back from LAKE POWELL!! Right after I got home from running my marathon we finished packing the trailer and we hit the road! It took two days driving each way but we got a good 4 days of playing in between!!

I brought ALL of my running gear, I was totally excited to run there. I was planning on running about 4 miles on Tuesday and again on Thursday. It didn't work out; the place was ALL hills. I didn't think that would be much of a recovery run so I opted out. Though I still think it would have been SA-WEET!!! Next time!

We DID get in some good exercise though! We hiked to Rainbow Bridge {The largest natural bridge in the world}.I exercised my imagination by reading and reading and reading. Mr. Darcy's Diary as well as Pride & Prejudice and Zombies. It was HEAVEN!I worked my legs and arms playing behind the boat! THAT, my friends, is a workout!And I soaked up A LOT of sun and scenery! It was beautiful. It's been so long since I've been there that I nearly forgot how gorgeous it is! I am completely rejuvenated. It was such a great thing for me and my family. Where is your favorite vacation spot?

That looks like the perfect vacay! Sadly I've lived in Utah my whole life and have never been there. I'm super jealous! But glad you got some time to relax during all your race plans!
