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 …

Brick Saturday

Today was a #SweatPink Saturday.

Got my Sweat Pink tank on and went out for a short run. Just 6 miles. Took my handheld with me and had it filled with a sample pack of Gu grape Roktane. Tasted really sweet and more like Kool-Aid then a sports drink. I would use this again, but need just plain water to drink too and not just this stuff.
My running pace was pretty good. About 12 min/miles. My legs felt good and recovered. Ignore the last couple of splits. I guess I had my Garmin on when I thought it was off.

I got home and the BF was getting ready for a bike ride. Did I want to go to? Yes! So I did a short bike ride with him after I changed clothes. It was getting cooler out, and it was windy, so we just did almost 9 miles.

We were going to walk up to Tablerock today, but family dinner plans are getting in the way with that.

I will be having a couple of giveaways coming up very soon!

On a side note, my phone had a few apps upgrade this weekend and now, I can't use Twitter or Foursquare on my phone. If you notice I am a little quiet on both, well, it is the upgrades not working with my phone as they should. I usually use Twitter on my phone since it works better then my comp - my computers are dinosaurs.

Did you run or race this weekend? How did it go? It seems like everyone in the bloggy world did awesome in Eugene. Congrats!
