The Grand Canyon!

This is where I spent my weekend:

 Yes. Please. It was a last minute trip and I am so glad that I went! I really (and by that I mean I REALLY) needed to get away this weekend.  Sometimes I just need to be away from all of the busy and the crazy and hit the reset button on life. I can't think of a better way to do that than by going somewhere like this:

The trip was great, a little chilly, but overall it was everything that I needed it to be.  I got to meet some new incredible people, hike the Grand Canyon, stay on a house boat on Lake Powell, and explore Zion National Park. Not bad for a last minute outing if I do say so myself.

So now I am feeling fabulous and things just got better when I got back. I found out that universe has been working in my favor big time. When I left, I was really excited to shut down my computer for 4 days.  I wrapped up all of my online business on Friday and I shut this bad boy down! Then I remembered that I hadn't signed up for the Disneyland Half Marathon. I have been going back and forth trying to decide whether or not I was going to try to attempt the Coast to Coast (running in a RunDisney event on both coasts within a calendar year), and as I was deciding, I watched the race numbers climb closer and closer to capacity.  At the last minute I decided to reboot my computer and sign up. When I came home Monday night I found that the race had sold out on Sunday.

HA! I am so glad that I didn't wait to sign up! I am in! I am going to run the Disneyland Half Marathon in September!
