First day working as ordinance worker in the Mt Timpanogos Temple from 10a to 5p.  Lots of walking, standing, going up and down flights of stairs...my dogs are tired! :)

Mrs. Smooth, go to the http://huntsvilleutahmarathon.com site and view the complete marathon course in about 5 minutes....This course is nothing like Nebo. It may start at over 9000' but I don't see any sever down hill. I'm really getting excited to run this marathon. Tomorrow (Friday) I am going to go drive the course and maybe get out of the car and run a mile or two. As of this hour the weather gypsies are saying an overnight low of 39* and a daytime high of 63*. I don't see anything wrong with that......

You're a temple worker?!?!? I usually go on Thursdays, but I'll try sneak in on a Wednesday to see my good friend !!! That is so awesome!

Glad to see you running :)

Have fun at the Full Monte. I'll be sending you good vibes as I go out for my morning run. That's exciting that you are working as an ordinance worker now.

Ms. Smooth, Where is your Full Monte race report?

I bet you are the cutest Temple worker there. My mom works there on Thursday, she's pretty cute too. Oh how I miss living near a temple. I need to get to UT to get a sessions done.
