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 …

iAM Fusion Awards

So, I may have mentioned this a few times in the few times I have been posting here, but there was an award I was nominated for.

Saturday was the big day of knowing if I won or not!

I was nominated for the Boise iAM Fusion awards for Top Athlete.

Serious. Top Athlete. Fo realz. That's my name there!

Yes, there was a Red Carpet walk.

 I took this very serious. The BF was not as excited as I was. Obviously.

I don't think the BF really wanted to take MY pic. Very unflattering.
Got my hair did. Made the BF buy a new suit. I have been getting my nails done in preparation for the big night.

I was hoping having an aisle seat was going to be lucky. Easy to jump and run down to the stage and get my award...

My view for a few hours...
After hours of being nervous, I didn't win. I'm sure I was 2nd place. I had fun and it was super exciting to have been nominated. Thank you to all who voted and you all have a year to prep your voting fingers for next year. ;-)

Now, I'll work on my beer drinking abilities with some increased running mileage in the days, weeks and months ahead. I did tell you I have another marathon SOON, right? :-)


Tell me something good that happened over the weekend? Any races coming up soon for you?


  1. Bummer you didn't win but it looks like it was a really fun night anyway! I ran RnR Chi last Sunday and didn't die. Very proud. HA!
