So this weekend was pretty fun. I ran another 5k and ran it in 26.49 and placed 6th in my age division. I knocked a minute off of my time! So hopefully I'm ready for the 10k in October!

So I havn't posted for awhile. So I thought I better get to it. So since my last post lets see...turned the big 30!! My birthday was nice,Josh said I celebrated all week. Which is okay that's usually how it goes anyway.

I'm running 5.5 miles now. Less then a month to my 10k. Which I'm pretty excited about. But with all this running I havent been riding for awhile. So last week Josh and I went up to Mercur Canyon it was sooo nice!! The weather was PERFECT!!!. I just love these fall days. Too bad they dont last that long.

So anyways here are some pics of Skylee being her goofy self!! She was putting lipstick on the dogs! And eating popsicles

This awesome view is 5 minutes from my mom and dads' house

One of the sadest days came upon me on August 31st, 2009. My sweet Rooster passed away at the beautiful age of 21.
He was given to me on my birthday 2003 from my father-in-law. He was reiner, working cow-horse, rope horse, trail horse and very amazing babysitter.
Everyone new Rooster and loved him immediately. He had personality that was all his own.
The first time I ever saw Rooster I thought he was beautiful, he had mane that went way past his neck and it was always in braids and his bay coat was so shiny.
One day Rod thought I should ride him since I had never rode a reiner. I thought this is going to be easy I've rode cutting horses and a reiner no prob. Rod showed me how to cue him to spin and when he started to spin, he spun so hard I couldn't get him to stop and I ended up on his neck.

He was the best babysitter you could ask for. I could put Skylee on him and know that she was in good hands. He taught Skylee confidence in riding horses.
And I know that Skylee and I will have more horses over our lifetime but we will never forget him.

Rest in Peace Rooster, you will never be forgotten.
