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 …

Three Things Thursday

1. I didn't make it to Whole Foods yesterday. But I did go today. Can I say I was disappointed? Maybe I am a spoiled brat, spoiled by the super nice, and huge, Pearl District PDX and the downtown Seattle Whole Foods. I did spend $50 on 6 items. I grabbed 2 bags of coffee, and one of those was decaf. Ugh. THAT was an accident! But since our coffee pot makes 2 pots a day, for 2 people - and that is not including the what out espresso machines put out, a little decaf won't hurt us.

The Rain Forest Blend that I opened as soon as I got home was surprisingly good, and there is a good chance I will be getting more.
Thumbs Up

2. I slogged 3 miles this afternoon. Either it was the wind, or the crappy sleep I got last night (I guess that is what I get for such good sleep the night before) I really had a hard time. Maybe it was hard because I have spent so much time on the treddy and not much time outdoors. Whatever it was, I was very slow,  but got it done.


3. I have signed up for Daily Vitamin F Thanksgiving 5K virtual run. I am not on cooking on T-day, I plan on cooking on Black Friday, so I will have time to get a little sweat on next Thursday. Sweat with us!

  1. I ran about 7 ish miles today- First speed workout for me since March! It was awesome. Not running a turkey trot since I will be at the Oregon Coast, but I will go running before stuffing my face. :-)
