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 Weather Gods Smiled On Me Today

Were you in Boise this afternoon? Did you see the weather?!?!




52 degrees! Perfect!

I had some brainy thought to go slog 13 miles in the great weather on the greenbelt. Yeah, didn't really work out as I planned.

But I did my first long run in a month since the marathon. Yay to me!


How long did you wait to do a long run after your marathon?
