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 …

New Running Swag

Who doesn't love new running things?! I finally got around to getting TWO new sports bras that I think that I like. I needed them. I was on my last good bra!

I got a Moving Comfort Fiona. I bought a Vixen last year and never really liked it. I never liked how unflattering the Juno and Jubralee looked on me. I didn't bounce, I just never liked how they looked on me. Which is silly. No one is looking at it when I am running.

 But I think that I am happy with the Fiona. So far after a couple short runs with it, no complaints!

I also picked up a New Balance Shockingly Unshocking. I love their bra names.

It is almost exactly like the Fiona, right down to the inside band. Crazy. I got it on a crazy clearance price at Sports Authority. It is a band size smaller then what I would have even looked at but it was $15 off then the price I thought it was marked at.

I also got a pair of Fit Plus Wear Sound Solution Capris to try out. They gave me a pair to try out and tell you all about them, so disclaimer - this section is sponsored by them.

I usually don't wear plain capris because I like the camouflage factor of wearing a skirt/skort. Skirts hide my tummy roll a bit better and some of the embarrassing sweat marks that happen in certain places.

And when I run, I usually just carry my phone in my hand because it hasn't been hot enough to wear a hydration pack, and I have not been putting in the miles needed for one. Plus my newer phone is a bit too big for the waist belt I had used the last couple of summers. But my phone is always covered in salt and sunscreen afterwards.

But these capris are changing my mind on how I feel. They have a LARGE hidden inside hip pocket to safely and comfortably carry your phone without needed a pack or belt. It's a sweatproof pocket.

Phones are heavy and sometimes even my house keys make my skirts hang off my waist low. These capris don't do that. They stay put. I ran with my keys and cell in the pocket with no problem!

And the compression factor is nice. Since I am an Apple shape, some compression shorts give me way more muffin top then I would like. These capris compress pretty comfortably all around, and not restrict to the point where I got the muffin top thing going on and chafe and can't make a full breath. These hide my tummy but they feel like regular workout capris. These are now my new favorite leggings! I feel that these are true to size. I picked a Large without measuring myself and they fit nicely.
