Red Rock Relay 2014 & Potty Talk

The last two days have flown by!

Yesterday was stacked with training, Baylees dance class pictures, Preschool, lunch date, Doctor appointment to spy on baby #3, and a pump class.

I even sat down at the end of the day to blog and realized I hadn’t taken ONE photo of the entire day. WOW. Blogger fail.

This morning I coached at GPP and stayed and did some computer work.

For those of you in Mexico we have a new location coming your way! I personally can’t wait to go down there and storm a workout!

The workout today seemed pretty easy and quick online but in reality it got a little rough toward the end! I also got a short run in today!


I have to start running a little more because I am going to run the MOAB RED ROCK RELAY! I am SO excited to run with my “dawls” again! I wasn’t planning on running with them and just working the race, helping with registration and all that jazz, but the opportunity came up that one runner had to drop out which is no fun, but I am glad I get to run a bit! This is my all time favorite relay.

This will by my 4th year running it, and it really is a must do! It is a quick ONE day relay, so you don’t have to do the whole “sleep in the van” thing, cause lets be honest.. there comes a point where that gets “fun.” Ha! After doing a lot of relays, I will say that the one day relays are my favorite!

Plus, having it in Moab, Utah is a big bonus because it is one of my favorite places to visit! It really is one giant playground for anyone that loves to bike, run, jeep, 4 wheel, rock climb, camp, go on a river trip, etc. I’m actually going to Moab this weekend!

Lunch came a little late today, I was pretty hangry by the time I got home and grabbed my left over salad from yesterday. I added some grilled chicken, peas and corn to the mix before literally inhaling it.


I taught my kids class today and afterwards had an hour and a half before I had to be back at work for a quick meeting. Brent was home with the kids, so I went for a run! I first went to the steepest hill in Bountiful and ran up it. Lets be real though. It was more like a fabulous “wog”

One of legs on the relay is pretty killer. So to the hills I run.

Afterwards I had about half hour and so I grabbed a little extra time on the treadmill. I was pretty tired but was able to run an extra mile and then I walked.


After my meeting, I came home and got dinner all squared away.

I have a thing for peas and corn lately, I guess..


At dinner tonight, Tanner told me he had to go potty.


I haven’t talked to much about “potty training” on the blog, but this kid was probably the most difficult child in the world to train. Not even kidding.

Bee has been potty trained for a year.

I was sure Tanner would be right behind her.. but no, he never cared. I tried everything under the sun to get him to go.. but nothing ever worked.

Then BAM.

All by himself! It is true that they will do it when they want too.

I totally cried tears of happiness and had quite the “potty party” for him. He is just as excited too!

Lets hope he keeps it up!

I have a early morning tomorrow so I’m off to sleep!

Runners: What has been your favorite relay/race?


Pregnant runners.. did you ever use a “belly bra”? If so, what kind/brand did you use and like?
