I have a thing for matching people.  Brooks made it possible for me to do so at a race so as you can guess, I was pretty happy about that.   I woke up at 5:40, ate a bagel, changed and met the girls at 6 o’clock in the lobby.  We walked to the starting line (a little less than a mile from our hotel) and went into the VIP tent for a little while.  I ate some grapes there […]

My alarm clock went off at 4 a.m. Saturday morning (even though I could have sworn it went off at least 10 times throughout the night because I kept on waking up, jumping out of bed and thinking I was late to the race) and I started getting ready.  I decided to play it safe and wear a long sleeve shirt and capris, I threw on a hat and drove the 15 minutes to where the busses were.  When I […]

I’ll have my race recap up tomorrow morning!  It was a beautiful course and I definitely want to run the Ogden 1/2 Marathon again.   It ended up raining pretty hard from start to finish so… As I was running along the course I decided to come up with ten great things about running in the rain because it seems as though the rain is following me around from race to race.  Here are some really great things about running […]

This is going to be a long one. I had a lot of time on the airplane and also a lot of endorphins while writing this after a weekend of marathoning and girls’ trip fun. We fit 6 people into one hotel room while in Boston.  The night before the race all of us girls were in a really silly mood and ended up laughing for an hour straight so we did go into the race with some sore abs. […]

It had been a long time since my last race.  Over 4 months.  When I don’t race often I kind of forget how to do it and I get really nervous.  I decided to make the decision last second to run this race, to just not overthink it and have fun.   My alarm went off at 6:45 and we were on the bus at 7:30.  I had some Powerade, a white bagel and a honeystinger waffle (my favorite) on […]

If you think after reading this recap that I am beyond in love and borderline obsessed with the St. George Marathon—>  good job because you understood exactly what I am trying to convey in this post.   One thing that did go so very wrong—>  my wireless headphones would not turn on.  At mile 8 when I went to turn them on to help me get up the huge hill they just wouldn’t work.  I even tested them the night […]

I have never done a race in Washington until this last Saturday and I am sure I will be back for more in the future after doing the beyond gorgeous RNR Seattle 1/2 Marathon.  The race started at 7 and we left the hotel at about 6:10 to walk a few blocks to the starting line (it gets light SOOO early in Seattle!).  It is so so so nice to be able to skip the whole ‘drive to the starting […]
