San Fran getaway

We have been so busy with school and work. We don't get to spend very much time together anymore.
We decided we needed to take advantage of our spring break and plan a getaway.

We headed to San Francisco. We booked a nice hotel room right off of fisherman's wharf. (Most of these pictures were taken with my phone so the quality isn't the best.)

The Bay Bridge looked amazing with its light show.


We rode the trolley cars all over the city. We got off at random places and walked up and down the hills looking at all the houses.


James was excited about hanging off of the edge of one of the cars.

We walked down the famous Lombard St. 


We had lunch at the rainforest cafe. There were beautiful fish tanks all around the restaurant.


This picture is very hard to make out, but I wanted to document this experience. We went to the wax museum and Ripley's Believe it or not. Inside Ripley's was what seemed to be a huge mirror maze. They gave us disposable gloves to wear so they didn't have to clean the mirrors and sent us in our way. We laughed the whole time.


We got matching tattoos!! Ok, not really. We went to the aquarium.


On our way out of town, we drove over the Golden Gate Bridge. Sadly, it was rainy and foggy. 
It was so nice to spend 3 days alone with each other. We can't wait to runaway again soon!

Survivor Mud Run 4/27/13

Last fall, a group of us decided to do a mud run together. We began training together a few months before and a week ago, we completed it.

This was my very first mud run. Now that my muscles and cuts have healed, I can say that I loved it and can't wait to run another one....this weekend! I didn't know what to expect, but I can say that it was the hardest challenge I have ever completed. 

Our group went with an 80's prom dress theme. Sadly, Kimmy and I weren't able to find a dress in time so we bought matching tie dye shirts. 








The group!


James was able to meet up with us at the end and catch some action shots of us doing the final obstacles.




This obstacle bellow was by far the worse one. We had to crawl on our hands and knees on top of sharp rocks in muddy water.

I survived....barely!



I placed 445 out of 1932 women and overall 1073rd out of 3322.
