A little slice of NZ...except in Scotland

The picture above was taken of the wall in one the hostels on our travels around the country....I believe it was in Queenstown, for our adventure-town get-away. For those who do not understand the humor, NZ is populated with roughly 4 million people. However, the sheep population runs at 40 million. Thus, these little guys were everywhere....

Okay, I can't take credit for finding this sweet video. Well, I did find it, but on the family member's blog of a friend's blog of a friend's blog. All I can say is just enjoy the video. It's pretty darn awesome! Ah, the memories of scattered, dotted seas of white on rolling green hills throughout NZ....

Two words: El Beautiful-o!

All I can say is that I had one of the greatest runs of my life today.  No I did not win a race, nor reach a new PR.  Nope, it wasn't like I felt like Rocky Balboa after conquering a major mountain, nor did I even want to attempt one.  

But two things rocked my world today: my running buddy and my running route.  My incredible sister and I are training for the Hobblecreek Half, and she's the one that came up with the running route--the other fantastic piece of today's running pie.  Please take note of all of the green within the city boundaries on the satellite image, plus the nicely situated mountains that are covered with foliage as they take part of the Uinta National Forest.

Yep.  Love my life.
