Marathon (St. George, Ut) Fine Dining (Las Vegas, Nv)

26.2 MILES!  TWENTY SIX + MILES!!!!!!!!!!  Can you wrap your mind around that figure?!!  Let me try to help those of you who are scratching your heads or shrugging your shoulders..... Run from Provo to South Jordan OR Phoenix to Mesa AND back OR fly into LAX and run to Disneyland and you have run a full marathon.  When speaking of marathons, the modern philosopher, David Probst I, was quoted  by saying, "It is the hardest thing I have ever done in my life".  Phoenix's finest wedding planner, Tanya Faller, was quoted saying, "I didn't expect it to be so emotional.  Children running into father's and mother's arms and grown men weeping as they approached the finish line." 

I know you are thinking it so i will come out and admit it.  David and his Dad are CRAZY but they love the sense of accomplishment they feel afterward as St. George honors them by laying a heavy metal around their neck.
Morning of (5:30am)
Flirting at Mile 26

Yes, Coca-Cola paid us handsomely
Emma, Andrew, Whitney, David, Tanya, Brady, & Richard
The race ended and the adrenalin faded and the soreness set in.  Tanya helped David I & David II by being their crutch as they limped back to the car.  We had a flight in the morning from Las Vegas airport SO WE HAD to stay the night in Vegas.  David I, insisted that we stay at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and so we gave in after not much of a fight.  We unpacked and Tanya and David II headed out for dinner at THE hotel's newest rooftop restaurant, THE Mix.  It was so nice the server said BON APPETITE.  MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Tanya and David took bread breaks in order to savor the mmmmmmmmouth watering deliciousness.  Lobster au curry (Tanya) & Lamb shanks (David).
