Ultimate Coffee Date - May 2015

Good morning!

It is absolutely gorgeous outside this morning as I sip on my coffee and catch up during the Ultimate Coffee Date. The wind is calm, the sky is blue, and the temperature is perfect.

If we were having coffee today... I would tell you about my winning week! I was the Week 3 winner for the #RockYourCore challenge in April, and got a huge box of goodies from Quest Nutrition - protein powder packets, protein bars, and even some protein chips. I also won entry to the Zion Half Marathon next March. Super excited for that!!

If we were having coffee today... I would tell you about all the races I have coming up - starting with a 16-miler tomorrow. A 16-miler that I decided to do last weekend (and registered for on Monday). Needless to say, I haven't really trained or prepared for it, but I'm excited about it nonetheless.

May 3 - Ride the Wind 16-miler
May 9 - FroYo 5k
May 30 - WildLand Fire Awareness Trail Half Marathon
July 31 - Once in a Blue Moon - Shoot the Moon - Three 5ks, One Night
Dec 5 - Run Laughlin Half Marathon

This will probably be it for my 2015 race schedule (unless I get a sponsor or a race sugar daddy) due to financial reasons, but I'll still try to get in as much running as possible. It's what I do. :-)

If we were having coffee today... I'd also mention that I was an ambassador for the Run Laughlin Half Marathon. You should totally join me for a fun #racecation. Use promo code EnjoyTheCourse to save $15 off the Half Marathon or $5 off the 5K. Or enter below to win a free entry!

If we were having coffee today... I'd tell you about our trip to the Grand Canyon at the beginning of April. It was magnificent - especially the sunset. We definitely want to go back again! I need to write a full post about that trip soon!


Grand Canyon

I'd probably also mention how we spent some time at Zion National Park, coming back from Ragnar Trail Zion last week. Again, another post I need to write.


Zion National Park

Another reason to love living in Vegas. So many national and state parks within a few hours drive. Awe inspiring!!

If you really want to feel like we're having coffee together, check out my vlog from this morning. I talk about the above and more. :-)



Now that we're all caught up, hop on over to the Ultimate Coffee Date hosts (Deb, Coco, or Lynda) to have coffee with a bunch of other fun bloggers!

    1. Packages are always super fun!

      People think of Vegas of the Strip, getting drunk, gambling, etc, but there really is so much other awesomeness close by. It's ridiculous.

  6. I'm so jealous! Zion is on my bucket list of places to go. We missed it on a trip my family took west when I was a kid. The Grand Canyon, too.

    Congrats on the win. :)

  9. Busy race year for you! The Grand Canyon looks amazing...I hope to get out there one year!
    This year is a lighter one for me race-wise since I've got NYC Marathon on 11/1. It's my biggie and my dream race.
