St. George Bound 11.5.10
The week of the Snow Canyon half marathon became increasingly complicated. David ended up with plantar fasciitis, which blew our dreams of running together again. He thought he'd come anyway so we could have a great weekend, but then it turned out that he had a major work conflict on Friday night. Long story short, Bliss, Liz, and I ended up deciding to drive down together and stay at Liz's sisters house (hi, Karin! You're wonderful! You're an amazing hostess!) Christina and Eric had worked extremely hard to set up the babysitting thing and had prepaid for their hotel, so they decided to keep with their original plan and left town a little before we did.
This ended up being a very good thing, because their van (Bessie) broke down just outside of Beaver, and we were able to roll into town for the rescue.
The five of us squeezed into Bliss's Mazda and laughed and laughed and laughed all the way to St. George. It made a fun trip even more memorable. Loved it.
