Memorial Weekend in Utah

June 1, 2016

Tyler came out to visit my new Utah home over the long Memorial Day weekend, just in time to enjoy the late Spring beauty. What better way to soak in the sites than for a pedal! On Saturday, Tyler and I rode about 60 miles and climbed close to 5,000 (hard to tell because both of our watches died so tracking was a little iffy). We are just under a month to our 70.3 Half Ironman in Mt. Tremblant and feeling strong on the bike!FullSizeRender-5

Stiener Aquatic Center in Salt Lake is 50M pool that’s only open in the late Spring & Summer and has an insane Wasatch Mountain Range backdrop. 


Following our Sunday swim, we headed up to Park City for some brews and overall good times! This photo was taken from the rooftop of the No Name Salon, a destination just 4.5 years ago hosted our pre-wedding apres-ski with all of our wedding guests and friends. IMG_1838-1


On Monday, our friends (and new Utah residents) Elizabeth and Adam took us for a fun loop around Park City via bike. So. Gorgeous. 


If you ride with me, chances are I’m going to get you in at least one GoPro shot. Be warned. 


To top things off, we were even able to stay in the same hotel in Park City that we were married in almost 5 years ago! Cheers to new adventures.
