(Side note: spontaneous half marathon on Saturday! I was invited to the South Valley Half Marathon coming up in three more days. Let me know if you're running this race.)
A few hours before the Moonlight Half Marathon on Friday I met up with some fellow bloggers at Yogurtland. Admittedly, an alarm went off somewhere inside me as I was eating a large bowl of coconut frozen yogurt topped with M&Ms. I realized this may not be the smartest thing to be doing a few hours before running a half marathon. (Fortunately no problems resulted from my decision.)
I met Amylee from Run My Guts Out, Rachelle from Running For Trevor, and Julia from Pain, Pride, & Perseverance. As we were leaving, someone (surprisingly not me!) suggested we get a jumping picture together.
My friend from St. George, Dr. Greg Taylor and his wife happened to show up at Yogurtland too. So I asked if he’d take a jumping picture for us. His wife said “I’ll take it, I’ve taken some jumping pictures before.” It turns out she was a jumping picture expert! She gave great coaching, and offered to take multiple pictures until we got it right. One of my favorites is this outtake as we were trying to get into the zone.
A few tries later we finally got it right:
After all their effort, I definitely owed the Taylors a jumping picture. I’m glad they took me up on the offer. They got this one on their first try!
I was highly impressed with everybody's jumping abilities!
