St. George Marathon

We just got back from St. George, where Trent ran yet another marathon. You know the one that he went to the extreme to get into. We headed down South Thursday night and stopped at a Burger King. It seemed that China had exploded in this small BK in a random city. We were surrounded by Asians. Seriously.

Once we got to St. George we did the typical swimming, eating, relaxing, shopping stuff. I was not very good at taking pictures at all, which I always regret after the fact, but I do enjoy not worrying about pictures during the fact.

Now on to the race.

The kids couldn't wait to see Trent come down the chute. And Trent did a fabulous job as always, He finished with a PR of 2:42:02 came in 27th overall.

See what I mean about no pics? I don't even have one of Trent crossing the finish line. Granted I was videoing it, but with our camera we can video and take pictures simultaneously, I just didn't think about it. So here is a quick family shot we took on the way home from the race.
That night while the boys were at priesthood, we tried to fit as many people as we could in our car and headed over to play at the park, while I devoured In & Out.
We stopped off at Grandma Veigel's on the way out of town.

And Trent got to "watch" football on the drive home. Its amazing that his phone fit perfectly there don't you think?

Once again it was another fun mini vacation. Can't wait until the next one.

That's amazing. Trent is such a machine. I'm glad you guys enjoyed your mini-vacate. The kids look super cute along the race fence line! I think your pictures are more than adequate to tell a good story. The phone in the steering wheel is spooky-perfect.
