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 …

Hot Chocolate Pics

I have good, very good, running related news I want to share with you. But it is going to have to wait until next week. :-)

It may or may not be the biggest deal of my 2013 and it does change up what races I will be doing for the rest of the year. I was planning running a marathon in Nevada in March, but that is going to be a back  burner deal for now.

Anyways, next Friday there will be a bloggy update with my good news. :-)

But I DO want to share with you today one of my favorite pics from the Hot Chocolate Run 5K from December.

Don't mind my wonky claw hand. I was getting ready to High 5 at the finish line. I don't know if it is the rare smile on my face, or my hair blowing back, but wow-check out the FROST on my headband!

 Right at the start.

This had to have been near the start since we were so close together. 

Nope, this I think was the turnaround because my gloves came off at the 1st mile.

 I am concentrating real hard here. And I have my glove on so this was near the start.

And I think this pic is right before the lady stopped in front of me. See how close we all were in the pack?

Anyways, the top pic is my fave pic.

Anything fun planned for this weekend?
