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 …

Semi-Wordless Wednesday

Hooray for hump day. I am soooo looking forward to Friday.

I got some BSN goodies from Fitfluential and BSN. As I taper, I think the Cellmass will be good for me since I have 20-ish days before my big day. I love the Dessert just because of the name. I made a pudding instead of a shake out of it today and it was pretty tasty.

Vodka. Peeps. In fridge. Today. For weekend. For post-race drinkie. Yay!

Today's 4 mile sweaty slog
I finally figured out how to see my current pace while I run. I was looking at the time of day, overall pace and distance with the lap pace (I have it set for every mile) popping up every lap/mile. To figure it out, all I did was read the instructions. Which does help when you are mildly a technophobe. Or in my case, lazy. Now, I really love my watch.

Planning your weekend out yet? Running? Racing? Anything good happening this week?


  1. Wait, so what do you do with the vodka and the Peeps?
