Aspen Valley Marathon

Eric has always had a bucket list item to run a full marathon. He had attempted to train several times, but it always resulted in injury. But not this year-- he was able to achieve that goal, and I ran the half to cheer him on. The race took place in beautiful Aspen, we decided to make a vacation out of it.

We spent some time at Gleenwood Springs. This visit included an adventure park, rafting, and of course the infamous hot springs


Independence Day 20017

We hosted our third annual Oberly family pancake breakfast this year. It was a huge success, the weather was on our side (not too hot!) and fun was had by all!
