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 …

Why Didn't I Get Popsicles?

I don't know why I didn't just get popsicles at at the store? Maybe because all my nice mouth numbing was starting to wear off and I have an achy head.

Just had 3 hours of some dental work done. Dentist said its not an oral surgery because I wasn't being put to sleep. But if there is cutting and stitches involved, I say surgery. This was a planned thing for some gum receding that is happening on a tooth. I have stitches on the roof of my mouth and stitches at the bottom half of my mouth. Girlfriend is waiting for the Vicodin to kick in!

I think this is great for the weight that I want to lose. I can't open my mouth to eat anything. I forgot popsicles at the store. But I am eating the hell out of Kozy Shack & chicken broth. Straight out of the container of course.

Good news- hopefully I will lose weight. And I have 2 nights off of work.
Bad news- I can't run or exercise for a few days.And I don't have a pureed bacon popsicle.

What soft foods do you like to eat after having dental stuff done? I got apple sauce, pudding and broth. Looking forward to Fro-yo tonight.
