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 …

Sunday Slog

Today, I couldn't take it. I needed to get outside and slog. I felt good, had energy, it was almost 50 degrees out, and I have not worked out all week. I needed to move!

I actually did over 5.90 miles, because the Garmin had me taking a shortcut on the track, which I didn't do. I slogged almost the whole time and only stopped right before mile 5 because I got a muscle cramp under my right collarbone. SO weird! But it sure felt good to move somewhere not on the greenbelt and somewhere not on a treadmill.

My mouth was ok and my stitches are healing and the swelling is going down and I can eat food, but can't really bite into anything.

Looks like I am back on the workout wagon this week!

Do you have any V-day plans this week? What are your workout plans this week?


  1. Nice work! I LOVE the look of all those laps on top of each other! No plans for VDay now but hopefully the hubby is planning something? What about you? Glad you're back on the workout wagon!

    1. I think seeing all the laps on the track via the garmin map is cool. You can see where I was having to switch lanes around the 10 other people using the track during the hour I was there.
