Well today was the Salt Lake City marathon and half marathon race. A few months ago Doug's sister Brooke suggested that the three of us train for the half marathon. Every week we would increase our mileage by 1 mile and today was the final run...13.1 miles! Doug, Brooke and I ran the entire way, except for Doug's potty break at mile 5. There were many a times during the past three months where we didn't feel like running and would rather stay at home and relax, but I must say that it did feel very good to accomplish this today and it was all worth it. So I guess it was worth all the hard work and training.
Here we were a little chilly before the race got started. They had everyone take trax to the starting line by the U of U... It was a packed full trax.
In case you are wondering, Doug did get the fastest time because he sprinting at the end. But I was happy to see that he only beat us by seconds. His time was 2:09:15 and Brook and I tied for 2:09:51. Happy exercising to all!
