Running retreat in St. George!

by Elizabeth on January 18, 2013

I hope your weekend is off to a great start! We are driving to Dallas today for a wedding (my bil’s brother is getting married so my bil and sil are the best man and matron of honor!) Expect lots of pictures tomorrow of me and Noah tearing it up on the dance floor ;-)

We DID manage to find shoes for him yesterday!


Someone has a shoe obsession like his daddy… I guess I can’t really talk because I also have a shoe obsession if they are neon running shoes. Not like you knew that ;-)


Lunch was a black bean and cheese quesadilla with avocado and some carrots.


On a random note, I decided to attend this retreat in St. George, Utah on February 21-23.


Every mom needs a few days of vacation… and I am currently accepting baby sitter applications so be sure to mail me yours. A few people I have met recently are also attending so I’m super excited to hang out with them! Running, yoga, pilates, zumba, a night glow stick run? Sounds right up my alley! There will also be lectures on proper running form and running through all stages of life (pregnancy, after baby, etc.) I can’t wait!

Last night Noah and I were able to hang out with my nephew for a few hours and we had a blast blowing bubbles, racing cars, playing catch, and watching this…


The boys were mesmerized. It made me feel less guilty for giving up my childhood Mary-Kate and Ashley addiction a year and a half ago (don’t do the math and try to figure out if I was married yet.) Have a great Saturday!


Were you a MK and A addict? What about a shoe addict? Have you ever been on a retreat?

I would love to attend that retreat someday! Good for you :) Um yes, I was obsessed with full house and all things MK and Ashley! I still use a MK and Ash brand hair brush that I got in my teens!! Why did I just admit that??

That retreat sounds awesome! I actually thought about it but it’s just a few days after my first full marathon so I probably won’t be in a position to run! ;) Can’t wait to hear all about it!

Oh jeez, I looooved MK & A. For way longer than I should have. In 5th grade, my friend and I would have full on MK & A movie weekend marathons. Good times :). And that running retreat looks awesome! I’m sure you’ll have such a fun time there.

That retreat sounds like so much fun, and like a nice break to focus on yourself!
Have fun at the wedding tonight. I love looking at wedding photos!

Lucky! The St. George retreat sounds amazing! Look forward to hearing about it.

Are you doing anymore local races the next few weeks? I’ll be doing the Rodeo run 10k, and considering The Woodlands Half.

That retreat sounds wonderful and it’s not too far away from me. Unfortunately my stand-by babysitter (my mom) won’t be available so I will have to miss it :(

The SheRuns retreat sounds awesome! I am going on a yoga/run retreat in Cozumel in ten days and am sooo excited :) I was a super FullHouse fan but I loved Stephanie Tanner more than MK Ashley. Often go to the park in SF across the street from where the Tanners “used to live”….

I would love to be apart of She Runs! I’m here in UT, but I don’t have a babysitter, or the money right now haha but maybe next year. Your boys are too cute!
