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 …

Another Race Registration

So, since I am sitting at home from work - another sick day, I can't help looking up race and running related stuff.

I registered for another race. I can't stop registering for races!

So, if all goes as planned, I will be doing a race every weekend in April.

I signed up for the Boise Glow 5k on April 6th.

I only decided to enter is because this is on a Saturday evening. And I love being able to run late races on weekends. I don't have to take time off from work on Friday night! Woot woot!

And it is a glow race. I get to dress up in glow in the dark body paint or glow sticks and stuff. How much fun does that sound?!?

Actually, I have wanted to wear one of these glow costumes but there are only so many Ghostland Observatory concerts that I can attend, which was one of the best live shows I have ever been to!

Have you ever ran a glow race? Do you have any fun glow in the dark costume ideas?


  1. A glow race sounds like a lot of fun, I have never run in one before. Looks like April will be a very busy month for you!

    1. April will be a good busy - 2 5ks, a half if I can get into registration & the 50k. And the glow race seriously sounds fun, doesn't it!?
