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 …

Shizits Getting Serious

I was filling out my Leave Request form for the days I needed off of work for all the races I have planned for February  March, and April. Since I work until 1:30am on Friday nights, and most races are Saturday mornings, I have to either take Friday off, or just work a few hours, going home at 9pm, with a goal to getting to sleep around 10pm.

April is looking to be a race every weekend?! I got 3 of the 4 weekends blocked out for races, and 2 of the registrations already taken care of.

Just waiting for one registration to open up on Feb 18th... It's is up to you to guess which one. It's a big deal and I wanna get in.

Maybe I should consider doing the High Speed Pursuit to fill up the weekend I don't have anything planned?

High Speed Pursuit
But as I was lining up my days needed off, I noticed that the 50K I have been training for finally has the registrations finally open.


I am the very first person to register for this race, too!

I got my Race Manual already printed out and studying it very carefully.

I'm not sniffing the paper. I am posing. 
Shizits just got real up in heres.

PS. Thank you to everyone that emailed telling my local running store that I should be the Inspirational Runner of the Year. I <3 you all.
