Well I was still having fun when this picture was taken at the 14 mile mark. (props to Heather for the shot) Two days after running the Top of Utah Marathon, in 4 hours and 36 minutes, my legs still hurt, and "hobble" would be the best word to describe how I get around. Also, next time around, I might invest in some of these.

so maybe it's time I finish what I started;
upon arriving in england on wednesday, we caught a plane that night to Ireland for two days!
Ireland was a lot like what I expected, in a good way. Rolling green hills, stone walls, leprechauns and sheep everywhere. The cliffs of Moher were my favourite, just gorgeous. Marc and I walked down the coast to a ruined tower on the cliff-side. we soaked it up.
The night before we had a medieval banquet in Bunratty castle. complete with entertainers in nearly accurate felt costumes. Later we visited an ancient burial ground, pomhoeangraglelifarlen (or something not like that at all, can't quite remember that gaelic word for it). Also we learned all about Clints and Grikes! fascinating.
