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 …

Things Going On- Random Post

Whew. We made it to the middle of the week. It is all downhill to the weekend from here!

I was going to run today, but the BF rented the Human Centipede II last night, and I am going to have to upload it to my computer to watch it later before it is due. I made him watch the 1st Human Centipede video because all of my friends (who are guys) were talking about it. Then South Park did an episode on it. I had to keep my BF up to date to what us young whipper snappers are talking about.

Oh, I am also not running today because I want to update my resume. There is one job that I want to apply for. If you know of any companies (running and fitness related companies would be awesome!) lemme know. :-)

And I won't run tomorrow because girlfriend needs to get her hair did. I usually don't wait longer then 8 weeks between visits, but I had to change my last appointment because of my Stanley half marathon interfered. So it has to have been 12 weeks. Eek! I am in need of a hair cut - so bad!

If you follow me on Twitter, you may have noticed that I was picked for the Mizuno Mezamashii Project. I think that their marketing plan is smart. Send shoes to those who are going to use social media to talk about the shoes, Mizuno brand, and the project.

I got my shoes last night. I should have called in sick to work to go for a run in them. I won't run in them until Friday.

The shoes that I got for the Project was the Wave Inspire 8. The pink highlight color is called Sangria.

I didn't get a choice of styles because the Inspire 8's are what they had in my size. The shoes seem to fit ok. I have never ran in Muzuno's before. I am not crazy about the color. I do not like white shoes. Do. Not. Like. I bet running in them will be ok because they retail for $114.99.

Shoe color is important to me.

Rocking my Robie Creek socks.
 I think if I throw some #SweatPink laces in them, it will be ok.

Speaking of Sweat Pink...

Fit Approach is starting a Sweat Pink Race Program. And I am going to sign up. You can sign up until July 6th, 2012. Cost is $35.
Whenever possible, Sweat Pink teams will meet up at local races; if you’re representing Sweat Pink solo, then you’ll still have a whole community cheering you on and celebrating your success virtually!The program includes:
  • A cute, wicking Sweat Pink tank or tee
  • A drink pink wineglass, for toasting each other after the race. We’ll send you a sweat pink wineglass so you can properly celebrate. 
  • Team Pink buttons. To pin on your shirt, your gym bag, or your biggest fans. 
  • A team fundraising page. We’ve created a fundraising page for the Sweat Pink team. We’ll vote on which charity or organization to support, and we can all fundraise as much or as little as we want. No minimums, no maximums. 
  • Shoelaces. But you already knew that, didn’t you? ;)
To sign up and Sweat Pink with me, Register and Sign up here. Pick Sweat Pink Race Program from the drop down menu.

Have you watched the Human Centipede? Did you sign up for an invite for Mezamashii? How often do you get your hair cut/colored?


  1. Hi! Just found your blog- im a brand new sweat pink ambassador :)

    I love the shoes you chose.. I also got selected and got the wave elixir 7's which are a dream to run in.

    I wait too many months between hair cuts.. Its emabarassing.

  2. Pink laces will fix them, don't you worry :) I love Mizuno because they are the first shoes I got fitted for that actually worked in fixing my knee pain and rolling in feet (I forget the precise model now, but I think it may be there most supportive). I was in them for 3 years and then switched to a different brand this year for 'variety' (and if I'm honest, some colour :P) but will be going back for my next pair!

    1. The shoes feel fine, but I just don't like the color. I will put my pink laces in there for sure!

  3. The Mezamashii project sounds VERY cool. I signed up for it, but I highly doubt I will get selected. I have heard wonderful things about Mizuno shoes and would totally love to try them out. You are lucky- congrats! :-)
