Clif Bars = Magic

Last weekend, Cam and I (and Kiara and Sam) went down to Moab for the Canyonlands Half Marathon. The twinners ran, the significant others supported. Perfect balance if you ask me.

We drove down Friday afternoon and went to the race check in. Cam and Kiara picked up their swag bags, bib numbers, and timing chips and Sam and I discovered the beauty that is the Clif Bar booth. This was my favorite place. I probably had 2 full clif bars if you combined all the samples I had. Consensus: Blueberry Crisp was my all time fave, followed closely by the Crunchy Macadamia Nut bar. Strike that, reverse it. Ah! Actually I just don't know. They are SO good! I have since checked every store we've gone into for both single bars and/or boxes of these flavors and I can't find them anywhere. Perhaps online it is. Amazon, perhaps? (free gift cards?)

Anyhow, the Calls really represented.

I'm 100% blown away by the people who run races like this. I'm currently "training" for a 5k. That's all I've got in me right now, lol. And actually I blew off my workout on Tuesday, so I don't exactly know what to think. (I've only been "training" for a week.) The dedication and motivation it takes to finish a race like this is incredible. Love you babe! And way to go all you other runners who I'm somehow connected to!

And major perk of the post-race hoopla at the finish line, the Clif bar booth was up and running and full of samples. :) Gotta love that macadamia nut crunch, erm, blueberry crisp, uhh. Just buy them both!
