Daily Mile Meet-up and some pictures

I wish you could all run with me and see the sights that I have been able to see and run through this last week.  Are you sick of hearing that or what?  Yeah I might sound like a broken record and I think my family is sick of me saying "It's so beautiful here", "I love it here", "Can you believe how amazing the view is"...yep I'm vocal about how I feel...almost all the time.  So like I promised...here are some pictures from my run the other evening.  It was a last minute run and was totally short.  Did I mention the elevation here?  Yeah, we are a little higher up then my normal running territory which I'm not used to and the breathing has been a little different, but the sites take my mind off it...did I tell you how pretty it is here??? Haha...see...

There is a mountain back there...

Can you see the moon?

A little dark, but you get the idea.

See what I mean?  Beautiful!


Love this part of the run.  I think it's a cool picture.

In some random and TOTALLY exciting news I got to meet up with a fellow Daily miler, a You Go Girl teammate and now a vacation buddy. It's a small world and I am constantly reminded of that even when I am away from home. Kim is staying a mile away at the same resort! See...I told you it was random. We figured it out yesterday and after many confusing, complicated texts (thanks to me) we were able to make a run happen this morning. I was thrilled to get to meet Kim and run with someone who loves this place as much as me. We met up early and it was freezing. I should have brought my gloves because after my .85 mile run to our meeting place my hands were still freezing. We met up and hugged and were excited to finally meet face-to-face. Always fun meeting new running friends. We headed down to the river, which was the same route I took the other day and is my favorite run here. Kim is a great gal and actually grew up about 15 miles from where I live. We talked about the usual, family, work and RUNNING of course. So much fun to meet new people over the miles...there I go again with my broken record...I know you all know how I feel about miles with old and new friends...it's the best. Had to bring my cell phone so I could take some pictures. At the end of our run they were herding the horses to the stables which was so cool to see...I tried to get pictures...did the best I could.



Had to stop for a picture with the horses!

Cool sight...right!


I love this part of the run! It's the other side of  the trail from a picture above.

Do you see the horses?

Silly lady runners...

Our last picture before we parted ways!
Later in the afternoon we met up at the pool and got to meet each others family and friends. Kim's husband ran a half-ironman recently so it was great to talk to him about that briefly. Love talking to people who have done those! Kim and her husband run together which is so nice. I can't even get my husband to run around the block with me, so to all those wives who's husband run with you...You are lucky and you should be so thankful! Someday...maybe my hubby will...someday!

It IS so darn beautiful there. It is always fun to share such beauty with someone.
You should join me on some hikes/trail runs. We could have a competition of which one of us says "it is beautiful here" more often. :)
