After the Utah Valley Half Marathon

You can read my race recap HERE.

After the race, we went back to the hotel, showered, got ready, and went to Red Robin for lunch.  I was craving a burger and a beer.  I was too hungry to take pictures but it was delicious!!

Then we went to Bridal Veil Falls.  It was gorgeous!!  I was not brave enough to climb the rocks to get closer to the falls.

Then we had some time to rest before our next adventure – skydiving!  It was so much fun!!  But I will admit that I was nervous.  I’ve been skydiving once about 6 years ago.

I was scared!  I kept thinking of all things that could go wrong.  I know, crazy!  I knew that the only way to get over that fear was to volunteer to be one of the first ones to go.  I was also worried about the hand brake (afraid I would not brake in time) but the first time is the “hardest” one and then the rest was easy.  I became a pro and would have zip lined the rest of the day!!

Afterwards we were hungry again and decided to eat Mexican food.  Well, that turned out to be an adventure.  Mexican food and margaritas go together, right?  Someone suggested “Los Hermanos” in Provo.  Well, it turned out they only had non alcoholic beverages.  I searched Yelp and called two more places but neither had alcoholic beverages.  Finally, we went to Joe Vera’s.  Yes, margaritas with tequila!  The food was OK.  I ordered a dish with one taco and two tostadas.  However, the tostadas had so much stuff on top of it (chicken, beans, guacamole, sour cream) that it was soggy and I couldn’t eat it the way a tostada should be eaten.

The next day was my flight back home.  Marcia, Mary Beth, and I went downstairs for breakfast.  Then it was time for the whirlpool to relax before my ride to the airport.

The weekend went by fast but it was still a wonderful trip!

Ever been to Utah?  Ziplining?  Where?
