I DID IT ! ! ! !

I LOVE to go for my daily walk. I actually look forward to it. Yes, it is dark and cold at 6 am when I go { the moon and stars are still out} but I love it. A few times I have thought to myself " I bet I can run from here to that tree up there." So I try it and when I get to the tree I think "nope, I'm not a runner" and start walking. Well about a month and a half ago I just woke up on morning and told myself that I was going to try running a just see how far I could go without stopping. I was VERY surprised when I drove my van around the neighborhood the same as I ran that morning and realized I had ran 3 miles non stop. I have never done that before. It felt really good. So I have been running instead of walking in the morning. Some of my relatives have run in the Turkey Trot Thanksgiving morning and I thought that might be a fun thing to try. So I have been running { more like jogging cause I don't go very fast} 3 miles every morning getting ready for the Trot.
I signed up to do the 10K {for all those non runners like me that means . . . . . .

and I didn't stop once. YEEEEEEHAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks Marc . . .

So in July we got back from our family reunion and I spent hours putting a post together for it. But when I went to save it my computer freaked out for some reason and didn't save it and it was all lost. So then I freaked out and almost through it out the window. Marc was nice enough to figure it all out the other day and post our family reunion and so I think I'll give this blogging thing another chance. Thanks Marc.

2008 Jackson Family Reunion . . . .

Let's just go now! {This post by MARC}
Ok, but it's 11 o'clock at night.
Ok, let's go.
(we camped under the stars outside Flagstaff that night/morning... whatever it was/is... it's early.)

Breakfast at Denny's in Page.

Have to stop in Kanab for an ice-cream
Quick photo shoot outside Glen Canyon Dam
Cant' go on a road trip in this family without the hand made propellers. Perfectly UN-balanced, makes for an exciting adventure at 80 mph. The game is to see who's hand goes numb first.

Sleeping at the Peterson's condo in Salt Lake City. Thanks M.G. & Christy. We love the place.

Yes, we also take pictures on Sunday.
Just relaxing outside the Brigham Young memorial park.

"Go Fish"Lunch with Nana at Costco to while getting supplies
