Even still, I had to wake up at 6 am to do my run before the sun came up so I wouldn't over heat. Which was actually very lucky for me because I didn't know there was going to be a blood moon and I had the absolute joy of chasing it for four miles. I felt like I had a piece of Mariah with me for 40 minutes. She lives for things like blood moons and she would have DIED to see it in all it's glory as it set behind red St. George cliffs. I wish I had gotten a better photo of it than this; it was absolutely mystifying.
After I got back from my jaunt, we drove into Nevada to take our machines out for a ride. Landon and his friend Mike on their dirt bikes and Jenessa and I rode in the side by side with Sunny and Reed where I thought I was surely going to die. This?
This was us using all of our strength to keep the beast from tumbling down the mountainside. Jenessa and I had to hang off the side of it while Reed slowly inched his way around. We came SO CLOSE to rolling, you guys. Too close for comfort. Naturally, I screamed bloody murder the rest of the ride. We got ridiculously stuck almost immediately after this incident, where it took about an hour to get us out. By the time we were done with our ride I think we all had heat stroke. But we also had a great time. Next time though, I think I'll bring my dirt bike. (Sorry Jenessa- you're on your own!)
We got back to the house and immediately got in the pool. And that's where we spent the rest of the weekend. Getting tan and practicing an Acro Yoga move I saw on a satirical Instagram page. We perfected it in the living room and then took it poolside where we were somewhat confident I wasn't going to drop Jenessa on the concrete.
Totally nailed it!! And after trying more of this sort of yoga with my brothers the other day, I'm one hunt to find a legit class where I can learn these things for real, because it is a lot of fun and stupidly difficult for me.
And other than that- the only work we had to do was trying to keep our sunscreen on and keep Shadow out of the pool. But we all know that's pointless.
