Girl's Getaway

My friends and I left the cute children with our husbands and spent the weekend in Park City. Fabulous shopping, delectable food, a couple of amazing trail runs (one that was so hard we called for a ride then died of embarrassment when we realized we were less than a mile for the hotel!), and fun times with friends. Couldn't ask for a better weekend.
What's your favorite activity on a girl's night or weekend away?

Up and at 'em

I hate dragging myself from my soft bed at five a.m. But once I'm out on the street or at the gym I'm thrilled that I started my day early and fit in a fabulous workout. The problem comes in the afternoon when I fall asleep trying to edit my latest novel. I know a nap, a walk, or sniffing some peppermint oil is a healthier option but lately I've found myself eating chocolate or chugging a Diet Coke.
What do you do to reenergize yourself?

Lotoja

My husband completed Lotoja in 13hr 13min. I am so proud of that guy! 206 miles and over 10,000 vertical feet in one day on a teeny little bike. It was amazing to watch.
I love distance running but cannot imagine riding a bike that long.
What's your favorite kind of endurance activity? Or do you prefer short bursts of activity and leave the crazy stuff alone?
