Salt Lake City Marathon....

So as some of you might know I have been training to run a half marathon for a while now. I started running last summer just to get in shape and have something to do with my sister in law. Well a while after that we started running some little races and then decided we wanted to run a half marathon. Well we finally did it yesterday in salt lake. We drove down with our hubbies on friday night, and then got up at 5:30 in the morning on saturday to be at the starting line by 7:00. The area that we ran through was gorgeous. I felt really good through the whole race other than noticing a difference in the elevation....I felt a little more short of breath in the beginning of the race than I normally do when I run. Anyway we ended up finishing the 13.1 mile half marathon in 2 hrs. and 7 minutes. It was so awesome. After wards we went and ate some lunch and made our way back to boise. I thought I might be a little sore, but not that bad because I have run long runs before while I was training and not had that much trouble with being sore....man was I wrong. I feel like an old woman walking around today. That's ok though it was so worth it.

Myca I don't think I knew you were running. I kind of think all runners are a little insane because I'm so not a runner. I'm so proud of you!
