A date night & the long run that wasn’t

Long time no blog.

It happens.

I have a fun excuse though. It’s a long weekend and it started early!

On Thursday we went to the UTAH football game! It was the first game of the season and our first date night without kids in the last 10 months. We both realize date night needs to happen more often! We had so much fun!

Funny story: Everyone who had tickets to the game received an email with instruction to wear a red or white depending on what section you are sitting in.

Yea…we obviously missed that memo…

On the way their we discussed that they didn’t do a good job of advertising it and we expected that nobody would really do it..

Big surprise, we were wrong.

It was a great game and we ended up with the WIN! Good start to the season! I had a happy husband, not to mention he had just finished taking a BIG important CPA test 1 hour prior to game time.. The Utah game was a great way to celebrate!

The kids LOVE Utah fans just as much as us.

The next morning I headed to work, after coaching I had a 15 mile run to tackle. My friends, Joanna and Tara AKA my sole sisters, joined me. We started around 11 am…. it was 87 degrees. We did a 5 mile loop and by the time we got back to the beginning it was 95 degrees outside and we were just DONE. We did the 5 miles just under 40 minutes. We got a drink and decided that we would call it a day.. I’ll have to get my 15 mile in tomorrow or Monday. NOT a fan of running in the heat…

Right about the time we left the gym, this car accident happened. I hate car accidents. The driver was ok. Just scary! I have been in 2 car accidents.. ugh. My heart dropped when I heard this happen!

Later in the day, I had a friend moving, so I whipped up a quick dinner to bring to her family and Brent and I helped them move for the rest of the night while the kids played. 

This morning I went to GPP for the workout.

Instead of rowing I did an extra run and then had a quick breakfast of some blueberry chocolate cake oats before teaching Body Pump!

Blueberry Chocolate Cake Oats

  • 1/3 C. Rolled Oats
  • 1/3 C. Egg whites

Microwave for 2 minutes


  • 1/2 Tbs. Cinnamon

After pump, I whipped up a quick shake

Now its time to pack it up and head to Bear Lake to enjoy the LONG weekend!

Have a great day y’all!
