Okay, I guess it’s time for a post. Or to kill this blog. I’m not ready to kill it so, here we go. I have no idea where I left off, so I’m going to start with our families’ sealing last week. Umm, yeah, it was a big deal. Rather than going into the details of the weekend (Kelly covered that), I’ll just say I REALLY appreciated the support of my friends (and family)! I know a lot of my friends are not LDS and it probably all seems a bit strange to them. And yet, they understood that it’s a big deal to us and it meant a lot to me.
Hopefully that makes some sense.
This weekend we decided to celebrate the sealing by skipping church. Ha! No, Kelly and I had the opportunity to spend last night at Sundance without kids and we went for it. Kelly will again show me up in the posting dep’t., but the short version is that we got up there around dinner time, ate and had dessert, did the Moonlight lift ride, had their superbe brunch today(can’t remember eating so much), sipped (herbal) tea at the Spa, did a bit of mtn biking, and umm, yeah, made out a whole bunch. TMI?
Anyway, it was really nice. BIG thanks to Kelly’s folks for watching the girls last night and today! And to her bro Jeff for all his help in setting things up at Sundance!
Oh, and before we went to Sundance, I did The Gauntlet!! 84 miles, 10,000ft vertical, and 5.5 hours. Hardest training ride I’ve done in probably a decade. I was good for the first couple climbs and then basically just had to suffer it out. And suffer I did. I had to keep telling myself to just keep pedaling. I was in a bad way, but I did it. Hopefully that’s some good prep for The Crusher.
We had probably 35 people show up, which is huge for a Utah County group ride. Super fun day. Split up pretty good though, not surprisingly!!
At this point, it’s going to be tough for me to do more than survive at the Crusher. I have a ton of travel in June, so finding much more form is going to be tough. I’ll try though!! I’ve enjoyed the process and having a goal, so whatever comes comes!
