Teton Dam Marathon Review

On the 2nd of June, I woke up at 4am to make a 3 hour drive to eastern Idaho for the Teton Dam Marathon. I did the 5K.

Did I mention I woke up at 4am to make a 3 hour drive. Yeah, not the best idea for legs to be in PR shape. My leggies were stiff and at 1100 more feet of elevation then at home, it was a slow trot for sure. No PR attempt this trot, that's for sure.

I woke up at 4am (my normal wake up time is 8am - 10am depending on the day) so that early is  painful. I had everything all packed and ready the evening before- brekky, post-race clothes, snacks, and a full tank of gas for the long drive. All I had to do was make coffee and head out. I didn't even brush my teeth before I left. Coffee first.

The drive was nice and not a lot of traffic for a Saturday morning. I don't know the last time I have been to Rexburg, but it was easy to find the race start. I thought the race started at 8am, but that was the 10K. The 5K started at 8:30am and I got there to get my bib at …

2011 Christmas Run Packet Pick-Up

Today was one of those super cray-cray days where I ALMOST forgot to pick up my race packet for the Christmas Run tomorrow morning.

I got busy with end of the school year things, grocery shopping things, and going to the post office.

Then I remembered, Hey it's 3pm. The race packet pick-up starts at 3.

The BF and I raced over to the Boise High cafeteria to get my number. Thank goodness there wasn't a whole lot of people there.
They made you look for your race number on a print out on one side of the room. Then go over to the other side of the room and get your race number. Then stand in line for your goodie bag, then shirt, then gloves.

The goodie bag included a free haircut coupon that expires Jan. 31, 2012 at SportClips. The BF is pleased about that. And a free ice cream coupon at a sweet shoppe called Goodys. They make good egg creams. Yum.
Shirt is long sleeved and 100% cotton. (Ugh) It has some glitter sparkles on it for snow on the design. Which doesn't make up for the fact that it's 100% cotton. But it is cute. And there are little gloves that we got too. One hand green, one hand red. If the BF would have signed up we would have had 2 of each. They were handing out jingle bells too. I took one but I won't wear it because it isn't jingly enough.

I barely had enough time today to get everything ready for tomorrow morning before I had to go to work today. All my clothes are set out. I have my Garmin charged and ready for 2.5 miles and my bib all set up on my Race Lite Go.

Just in case anyone wants to torture themselves with the Seattle Marathon in 2012, I did get an email today from the Seattle Marathon with a code for $5-$10 off race fees for the 2012 race.  This code works until Feb. 18. 2012. The code is 12TAKE10

Here is the Christmas Run Race Review.
