Our first stop after leaving our hotel in Las Vegas was the Hoover Dam. It was only about a 45 minute drive from Las Vegas. There’s a large parking garage you can park in for $10, then walk over and around the dam.

I recently returned from an amazing trip out west. I called this the "30-60 trip." I turned 30 years old this year, and my mom turned 60. I suggested to her last year that we should go on a cool trip together to celebrate our big birthdays.

This year I went back to doing the sprint distance at the local tri in Ithaca, the Cayuga Lake Triathlon. This was my 5th time total doing this race -- my third time doing the sprint, and I had done the intermediate distance the past 2 years.

On Sunday I did the Gillie Girl Sprint Triathlon in Camillus, NY. I did this race in 2014 and 2016, so it was my third year doing it. The nice thing about doing the same race multiple times is that you don't get very nervous! Also it's fun to be able to compare your times to previous years on the same course.

After Mexico, I headed to Austin. Nick and I split up at the airport in Monterrey and I headed to Houston then Austin. I did not have a long layover in Houston and I was worried about getting through customs and to my next flight in time, but, it worked out OK.

As I mentioned in my previous blog post, Nick's friend Alan married his girlfriend Cordelia in Monterrey, Mexico July 1 and we were invited. They both live in Monterrey so this was not a "destination wedding" in Mexico.

Last week Nick and I went to Monterrey, Mexico for a wedding. When Nick was in college there were several students from Monterrey that went to Nick's college for a semester and Nick kept in touch with a few of them. One of these exchange students, Alan, was the one getting married. We met up with him and his now-wife, Cordelia, a few years ago in Chicago.
