I 100% believe I won in the dad category; really there is no doubt in my mind that he is the greatest. He genuinely is one of the best men I know. Since I was a little girl he constantly served those around him; he would shovel the walks of the single women in the neighborhood & give them a Christmas poinsettia. He taught me to respect myself; he called me pumpkin not princess. And that it is cool to be able to provide for myself but was also so generous and kind in helping me with my education because he was a big believer in learning. I knew who Pavarotti, Beethoven, & Tchaikovsky were before I was 4 years old just by riding in his car. I knew he was always going to be there for me, no matter what. He never had to tell me. I accidentally pocket dialed him late one night after a movie and quickly hung up, knowing he was in Colorado on a business trip. With the time change it was after midnight or one in the morning for him and I didn’t want to wake him. He immediately called me back asking if everything was okay? I apologized and told him of my mistake; not mad he said, “Well I’m awake, so tell me what’s going on? How are you?” With tears in my eyes he and I talked for a few minutes and my love grew even more for this man who raised me, he took precious moments of his sleep to check in on me in a time when I probably needed that check in more than I realized. I think my love of animals comes from him, you watch him interacting with the dogs and it’s obvious he’s a sucker for these furballs; I mean you see how much Scout loves him. He bribes me with eierkuchen if he feels it’s been too long since he’s seen me for s Sunday dinner, hates it when I wear a baseball hat backwards, and taught us that toots were called poompsels in German so we didn’t call them farts growing up. He also told me that he threw this heart shaped rocks in the water years ago and was glad I found them. Way back when he didn’t know how to change contact info I reprogrammed myself as Favorite Daughter into his phone, and to this day I’ve somehow managed to keep the name. Well dad, you’re my favorite dad and I’m the luckiest you are mine ♥️

Takes some quality women to wake up in the 5 am hour to hike two trails gaining 4,003 feet of elevation with you. Even more so that they support you in your @universityofutah gear while you #flashtheu while hiking the “Y”

The lemmings. This picture sums them up in a nutshell, Lovely is constantly watching Scout and everyone/thing. Scout is doing her own thing and likely aware of the person in the room (or nearby) but will be comfortable & trying to avoid Lovely.

This year’s @ragnartrail Zion came & went in the blink of an eye. This team of mine was one of the best. They all trained far more than me, all were far wittier than me & were able to function on far less sleep than I was. At one moment during the red loop, as I do every year I thought why in the world am I doing this, why do I keep doing this? And then I remembered the views I had seen at the top of the incline and the trails I had just run through where I looked out and saw this gorgeous landscape and it all made sense I love running on dirt through the trees, over rocks even when I wreck my ankle(s). My heart belongs here. I also enjoyed a 2 am run in 48 degrees and didn’t care about my pace! I just loved every minute of it because the yellow loop is golden and legitimately the best loop. Next year I’m bribing teammates to trade for their yellows out of my other loops. I made friends with all of the people wearing @skyemountainco_ hats, yeah I was that person stopping strangers to say “hey, you! Yeah you are one of my people we wear the same hats.” And then proceeded to snap selfies 💁🏽‍♀️. .

I love hats. They protect my face & head from the sun while I nature it up. They keep the hair outta my face. Plus they are cute and most of the importantly they’re comfy.
This one wins the award for them all! .

#itislightweight- legitimately feels like a cloud on your noggin.
#bright colors: I want people to see me if the lighting is poor on the trail/road.
#itbreathes - yep my head sweats 🤷🏽‍♀️ I’m human. #collapsible I have a lot of hats and yet 5 of these managed to squish into the drawer that had NO more room... soooo convenient!
#it’saSnapBack, which are my favorite (just personal preference) and they use a quality product!
#theyarelocal! Yes this company is local! I love my Utah based companies ♥️. That’s all I’m going to finish my run now. #getthosewigglesout #runlikeagirl #racewithreason #beautahful

When you show up to family dinner and the majority of the girls are wearing Birks ♥️

Soooo this happened yesterday 🤦🏽‍♀️. I won’t bore you with the details of the story but I’m obviously not real happy about it. 5 years 8 months of committing to something is just gone. My hair feels naked. #doistartanewone?

These two. Don’t even have words to express my love for them, but they love hats as much as I do soooo... I mean I may have gone to fitcon just to hang out with them; didn’t look at a single booth other than the two where they were hanging out ♥️🤷🏽‍♀️

When Scout mimics you for the best h+Scout selfie I could ever dream of. #mybestdecision
