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 …

Gortons Seafood 30-Day Realistic Resolution Challenge & Giveaway!

This post is sponsored by Gorton's and no other compensation was given.

The next 6 months, I am determined to get down to XXX weight. I want to lose XX pounds. (I don't wanna say numbers just in case another competitor is tracking my progress... see previous post for details...) I have been eating extremely clean the last couple of days as I've never really had a very clean diet in the last couple years of running. Hence why I'm a little soft around the middle after all these years...

But as of January 3rd, I'm clean eating. Healthy carbs, plenty of veggies, and lean, healthy protein.

Dinner!!!! #nom
My dinner isn't just boring chicken breast and spinach salad. Nope. I have spinach, quinoa, roasted veggies, and Gorton's Simply Bake Salmon on my plate.

My dinner made me very happy. The salmon was really, really good. Even though it is pretty clean, I don't dread putting it into my mouth even though it is healthy! You know how unpleasant some clean meals are. I know that there has to be a lot of people out there who want to do something healthy as one of their New Years Resolutions.

Gortons has teamed up with SparkPeople for the Realistic Resolution Challenge.
