Dam Marathon

Last weekend I ran my 2nd 5k at the Teton Dam Marathon in Rexburg Idaho. It was a doosie. The first 1.1 miles was all up hill and just as I finished running a little down hill I noticed another hill..what..then when I reached the top of that one I saw that after I ran down the hill and had to go up another, thank goodness that was the last one. What was nice as I reached the top of my last hill there was the Rexburg temple, it was a good boost of energy I needed to finish the race. About a mile and a half was up hill and the rest was down hill. The only flat part was the very end through the shoot. Surprisingly enough I beat my SLC marathon time by 4 min. I will say thank goodness for the down hill I was running 11:30 min. miles..I will tell you I do not do that. Not yet...but very soon I hope.

Jana and the kids were nice enough to walk me to my start line and wait for me to start. She of course took some pictures..by the way I totally need a tan. This is my right before the race.

Jeff Ran the 10k and took first for is age group..Go Reffy!! Here we are at the finish!
Josh, Payton, Jana, and Jeff who pushed Grace ran the family fun run..1 mile. Josh amazed me and did it in 6:30 min..I was completely shocked. You can here my surprise on the video. Payton did it in 8:15 pretty dang awesome for a 6 year old. He has such determination was he sees the finish I love it. Jeff and Jana came in right after payton. They both did awesome!! There are videos of this all in Jana's blog go check it out.

PS.. I Couldn't get the video of my finish to work..if your lucky I will try to get it to work later.

You amaze me! I hate to run. Hate it. I'd be lucky to do a 15 min. mile. For me it would be a Dam* Marathon :)

You're so awesome! 4 minutes faster? Wow. I just commited to climbing Mt. St. Helens with my dad and siblings in August. What am I thinking?! I'm so not ready, and super scared my legs, my lungs, or my heart will give out on me. Or, maybe all three! Oh dear!
