Zion National Park Race weekend Part TWO: the Trifecta Challenge

Earlier this week I shared the story of my first half marathon.  That was PART ONE of this story. Today, I wanted to show some extra snaps of beautiful Zion National Park.

I raced with my friend, Kristen.  Our race was exhilarating!

The most beautiful morning.
I took this picture during our race.  Views just like this for 13.1 miles.

Afterwards, we accepted the Trifecta Challenge to complete 3 hikes after our half marathon.  Here are some moments of our hikes along the way... 

1) The Narrows Hike:

The water was extremely cold at the end of the Narrows hike!  Freezing.  The boys and I got in, but it was painful!  I'm not sure how they stayed in there as long as they did.

2) Canyon Overlook Hike:

The boys with my parents!

Me and my main!

3) Kolob Canyon Hike:

Kristen and Titus

It was a blessed weekend in a giant way.

Arriving at Zion with my girl!

Feasting at fun spots...

and being together.

Lisa, these were REALLY fun reading!!! I've never run a marathon, obviously, but I walked the 60 miles of the Breast Cancer 3-Day so I can kind of relate to that feeling of accomplishment. It is awesome isn't it? Congratulations on finishing your first half marathon - have you signed up for a full one yet??! :-)
Hugs - Dori -
