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.

26.2 Stickers

Do you have a 26.2 (or whatever your preferred race) on your car? I got one the other day and it is going on my car! Click the link, you can get one too.

Maybe I should hit up a training run down Overland or something sometime this spring. Sidewalks, almost the whole way.

Do you have a 26.2 sticker? Does what you have accomplished running just amaze you sometimes?
