PROUD!!!


Do you ever just feel really proud to be a member of a family? That is how I feel this week. The Wasatch Back relay was a dream that my uncle, Steve Hill, has had for years. Inpired by a Race in Oregon - Hood to Coast - his driven son Dan decided to make his dad's dream a reality. From that dream and the drive of a young college student, the Wasatch Back relay is now HUGE and has expanded to different races all over the United States. My extended family put together a team this year and they finished the race #102 out of over 500 teams...amazing considering a few (my brothers) are not what you would call avid runners! We volunteer throughout the race route each year and I love telling people that it was my cousins drive and my uncles vision that made the Wasatch Back Relay come to life. Our team "ROAD KHILL" (spelled that way becase we are the Hill's) had a few bumps in the road but pressed on and finished the race very respectively. We are already planning for next year and I might actually try and train and join...we will see. So, CONGRATS to all of my extended family who participated in the race in any way and to Steve and Dan for another successful year!

That is sweet. I've heard that race is a lot of fun... quite the workout but fun. :) It will be fun to see you in the picture next year! ;)

You have been so busy... between Lake Powell, Lagoon and all of your other activities. The Hogle Zoo looked like it was a blast. I can't wait to take Owen.

You have such a cute family!
