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 …

Congratulations Mr. Groundhog!

As of 2:30am, when I finished my 3 treadmill miles, it is snowing. Congratulations to Mr. Groundhog for predicting correctly the few extra weeks of winter. 

 That is the ground and it has snow falling on it.

Today was tiring. After a dental appointment to take out half my stitches that came loose, I went shopping at Winco for coffee creamer. The most important thing in my kitchen besides the coffee and coffee pots. I found Dragonfruit, which the BF has been wanting for so long, and I got 6. Thought that it would make his V-day a little bit more special. I gave him his presents last week when they came in the mail - goodies from Dean & Deluca. Being the great gift giver that he is, I got a "Happy Tuesday" and a "Happy Valentines Day." Words. My BF is so romantic.

 I wanted to do a little bit more then 3. I can't remember how many are on my schedule, but I am so tired. I had to nap before work this afternoon and after a pot of coffee, I yawned all night long. I did the 1st 2 miles at 4.9 and no incline, but needed to stop and run to the pottie. Tummy ache. Then I was able to slog through the 3rd mile varying the incline from -3 to +6 at 4.9. The higher you go the tougher it is. I know. Duh. But sometimes the brain and the legs forget when you don't do push yourself for a few weeks.  
Have you ever tried Dragonfruit before? I have yet to try it but I am excited!
