Hungry Dogs Win the Race

Snick just ran its first half-marathon on saturday. Our time was 2 hours 4 minutes. (9:30 per mile). We definitely weren't the fastest kids in the race, but we had a blast. It was so fun to run a race together. If you can't pick out the sweatiest person in this photo then ring your call button and Tommy here will come hit you on the head with a sledgehammer because you are a retard! No, but seriously do I get a prize for being more sweaty than Chris Farley in Tommy Boy?
Let's rewind a sec. Here is what we did this weekend.

- Class for 4 hours, wrote an 8 page paper, wedding rehearsal dinner. Home at 11 PM.

- Woke up at 3:30 AM to get to the bus in time for the half-marathon. They bus you up Sundance canyon and then drop you off and let you run your way back to your vehicle.
- Started the race at 5:30 AM. It was rainy and 45 degrees, but once the sun came up it was fine - plus it doesn't matter because I'm Tommy Boy's cousin and I have sweat tacos on a daily basis.
-Finished the half-marathon at 7:30, rushed home to shower, headed up to SLC to get my hair done for the wedding of our dear friends Mike and Lauren.
SIDE NOTE:Their wedding was absolutely gorgeous and so were they. It was such a wonderful experience to be a part of their special day.
MORE SIDE NOTES: We planned a little surprise for Lauren.

The wedding isn't featured yet, but the website is deliciously fun. I'll be posting more pictures of the wedding/reception later. It was seriously a blast, but by the end of the night we were exhausted and quite sore. We got home around 11:30 PM from the reception and we both crashed.

The half-marathon was awesome and we plan on doing another one someday. I still can't believe I ran 13.1 miles and didn't die. I do need new running shoes though. Mom? Are you listening?

In a completely unrelated note to running shoes - I found this photo of Lil D today. Oh what a hidden gem...

Save a fish, save a life!

Thank you for all who showed your support in saving the life of a classic piece of art. One day long after I have left my possessions behind with my children, the Fish will be displayed in a museum of my choice so that all may gaze and awe in pure admiration for the brilliant mind and hands that conceived the idea and created it. I would especially like to thank those voters who took this cause so seriously that you figured out that voting more than once was possible if you only switched computers. Your dedication will surely not go unnoticed. (I would like to hope that we really have as many followers as the poll total says, but only time will tell. Maybe Google will be contacting us soon to place advertisements because of popularity.)

In recent news, I have stumbled across a slightly forgotten love of mine. 80s music! In surfing the internet for random 80s music, I came across a man who is truly inspiring for so many of us and truly frightening for everyone who does not fall into the first category...Donny Osmond. Which brings us to our poll for this week. What was the best thing about the 80s? You may vote in the polling station to the right.

If you need help before answering the polling question there are some sample videos in the links below all of which should be viewed for pleasure regardless of your opinion on the 80s.

Donny Osmond - Soldier of Love
The Outfield - Your Love
Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock - It Takes Two

Again thank you for your loyal support in our newsworthy polls.
