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 …

The Weekend In Pictures


 Before I headed out on the trail.

 Homestead Trail on Saturday. It was quite windy!

 I also checked this out too, and I am trying to finish reading it in 1 day.

Sunday I had to get a treadmill run in at the BSU rec. Just 6 miles today. 

What did you do this weekend? What book are you reading right now? Have you watched any good movies that I should check out?

  2. I was kind of a bum all weekend for the most part. Getting packed and stuff ready to go to Oregon on Wednesday to visit my family. I am reading the Stephanie Plum series right now. They are quick reads. I am on book 9 of 19.

  3. Those trails look amazing! My husband and I have talked about moving to ID. when he retires, so beautiful. I'm sorry things are tough right now (I read your comment on my blog, RunWiki) Going out on a trail run like this is not the answer to all of life's stresses but it does help, yes? Sometimes just seeing something beautiful...
