It was a long drive to our destination in Montana – but oh so worth it. This was the week that we were supposed to be exploring Zion and Bryce and other beautiful areas of Utah culminating in my 1/2 marathon race on Saturday. This is my first Did Not Start. Ugh I guess you other runners out there understand.

Tomorrow, I will
exhaust treat you to more of Montana – the lakes, the mountains, and I’m walking!!!! YAY!
