What I've been up to

I've been traveling a lot more with my current job than I did with my last one. In a nutshell, I put on entrepreneurial competitions. My company helps start-ups get funding. Our most popular event, called CrowdPitch, has 5-6 entrepreneurs present their business plans in front of an audience, as well as a panel of judges. The crowd and panel invest FUN money at the end with the company they liked best. Winner gets a prize package worth about $5,000.

I traveled down to Arizona for the second time to do a couple events. The first time around, I invited my parents. This time, in addition to my parents, I had by brother Dave and his wife, and my sister Jenny and her husband. It was a mini family reunion.

This is a shot of Dave & Julie we found in another blog post

I've really been taking my time getting back into shape. That translated into my second 5K of the summer. My time of 20:49 in the Alpine Days 5K was only good enough for 4th place in my age group. Some great runners came out.

Why even bother "hiding" your keys under the tire if you're gonna just do a half-assed job. They'd be better concealed in the ignition.

Deanna is back from nannying around the globe. We celebrated her birthday the other night at a park in Lindon. That's her niece Lola, not our love child.

Don't deny it, Shane.
Thanks so much for coming to the party!

Maybe someday we could go to one of your business events.
I updated my blog :)
