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 …

Birthday Presents

My birthday is in a few weeks. I am a pretty easy person to get a present for. I am pretty vocal about things that I want. I don't appreciate the BF buying me alcohol for my birthday and xmas but if it's cool if someone else does that.

Being a runner, anything running related is welcomed.

I got asked if registration to the Redfish Lake Lodge Memorial Run would be a great gift idea for me.

Heck yea! Memorial day weekend in the mountains! Double heck yea if that birthday present even includes a night at Redfish Lodge too!

This idea got me looking into other May races too that I would like to do.

CDA Marathon would be awesome & it is the Sunday after Redfish.
Coeur d'Alene Marathon
And if the birthday gift included a night at The Coeur d'Alene Resort - Heck Yea!

And I know this isn't a May race but still be cool anyways - Dynamite Half Marathon & 5K

"Party On The Run" - Yes, please!

Have you ever been given a gift of a race registration? I never expected to do a Memorial Day Weekend race, but it looks like I get to!


  1. I think a race entry would be a great gift!! I always prefer experiences to actual things!

  2. I have never thought about it, but that would be an AWESOME gift!!!
