Aunt Natalee came into town this past weekend for a visit and a little jog. Soon after she arrived, we packed up the truck and headed to Leadville, Colorado for our weekend in the highest city in the USA.

We went out to Turquoise Lake on arrival and the kids spent time splashing in the lake. The water is straight out of the mountains so its not exactly warm.

The next day was time for my race. Kim did some off-roading and got my cheering section out to the middle of the race so I could gather a few hugs and kisses to keep the motivation going strong.

As I approached the finish line, the kids came out to join me. They flanked me on both sides as I crossed the finish line after nearly 6 hours of running.

Moments after finishing, Sydney asks me — what took you so long?
