Race Day...

I loved the Salt Lake City Marathon. It has honestly been one of the best races I have done to date. There was eager fans cheering everyone on the whole way, which was really nice to see as a runner the support along the way.

Of course the preparation wasn't where I would have liked to be. All in all tough the race went really smooth. I ran the whole 13.1 miles never stopping unless for a potty break which I thought was great, since I only had run up to 10 miles in training. I had long decided that this race was more or less going to be just something to enjoy. I went in with that idea only because I felt I was extremely under prepared and knowing myself(I am an extremely competitive person) I would have been really disappointed if I didn't do as great as I though I could have. So most of you would have found in running trying to keep others motivated and getting to know other runners. It was fun to feel like I had plenty of energy for myself and for others. Towards the last stretch of the race I found plenty of ladies that packed together and all helped one another make it to the finish line.

Over all I can say it wont be the best time I will ever run a race in, but it will be one of the most memorable. Thanks for all of you who came and supported me, I cant tell you how much that meant to have you there. Below are a couple pictures.

Almost to the finish.

It looks as though I will be doing this 1/2 marathon on Saturday.... Ask me if I am ready and I will tell you absolutely not.. the longest I have ran is 10 miles. But for the sake of friends and the $70.00 it was to enter I will run/ walk or run really slowly!! ha ha. So wish me luck, and I hope I survive.

Just in case...

Just in case any of you were wondering where Rand is putting his blog posts... Apparently my dear sweet husband started his own. He is too good for our blog together (although I am the primary publisher on here regardless) ha ha.. So without further to do here is where you call can find Rand when he decides to do a post or two.

Happy Easter...

A little craft you can make if you are one of those amazing creative types.... I on the other hand would break the egg in the process of removing the yoke first.... probably multiple times. So if you are crafty and have many talents, go to town doing it perfect and amazing each time. If you are looking for me I will be in the kitchen trying to master this skill.....
