I finally made it to Alaska to visit my cousins. My cousin recently deployed to Afghanistan, so he was MIA. But I did get to meet the newest addition to the family. I also made a running trip out of it that you can read here.

I flew in at midnight just before the summer solstice. This is what midnight looks like. It's such a trip to not see darkness.

Everyone eats reindeer. Poor reindeer.
 At a chocolate factory.
 At the zoo with my cousins.
 50 degrees on the first day of summer. Reminds me of Seattle.
 My cousin's baby, just 5 months old and playing with Seahawks toys. How can you not love that?
 Finishing the race. Really out of shape.
 Just before it started. Feeling good.
 Best running sign of the day.
During the race 

We actually had to hike part of the race and battle thousands of mosquitos. I have bites all over.
