My first 5k.

Yesterday I ran my first 5k. I ran with my Sister-in-Law, Andrea, who turned out to be a great running partner. We both helped each other keep a good pace. If I would fall behind seeing her ahead of me would encourage me to continue. She says I did the same for her. I finished the race in 35:53:18. She finished just a few steps ahead of me, but because of a misunderstanding she didn't have her timing chip. We are making plans to do more races in the future. We hope to do next years Ogden Marathon 5k again and improve our time. I feel so good about actually running and finishing this. I was starting to get really nervous and was thinking of a way to get out of it. I am so glad that I didn't! It was a great experience. I feel so powerful.

Best Use of Prop

Brandon did the 48 hour film festival for the first time this year. He had so much fun and is already planning next year. It began Friday evening. He had a representative from his team head done to the meeting in Salt Lake. At that meeting they were given the genre, a prop to use, and a character name. From that point on they had 48 hours to write, film, edit, and burn a 7 minute movie. Things were pretty intense for him and his team. He had a small part for Spencer, so I got to go watch him work for a bit. It was pretty fun to see how he just takes control and gets things done. They turned in their film with a minute to spare. They shut the doors behind him. He was pretty tired for the next few days. He has since been to parties and screenings. He has made a lot of new contacts, that he hopes that will open new doors in helping him live his dream. At the award ceremony he won an award for the Best Use of Prop. There were 44 films, and to be recognized as one of the best in that group is pretty impressive. Way to go, Brandon!

What a good boy.

Brandon surprised me with a night at the Anniversary Inn in Logan. We were there last year for our 5th anniversary, so it was fun to go back there for our 6th. We went to dinner at Ruby Tuesday, walked around the Cache Valley Mall, and then retired to our room. It was a nice time. My only complaint is that it wasn't long enough. I wish I could have a week alone with him. He is my best friend and I just want to be with him at all times. At home we are so busy running here and there, dealing with work, the apartments, kids, families, and friends. It is nice to be able to get away and just be together.

Thanks for the good time, Dollface. You are the greatest!
