I feel all pretentious having a blog. Like everyone wants to hear about me and my boring day. Unfortunately you will have to hear about me, because Kelli is making me post something.
Here is a picture from my half marathon two weekends ago (March 24). I ran it with two girls in my ward. Erin, me, Jamila (we did not coordinate the pink, it just happened--By the way, this picture was taken after the race so we were all sweaty and tired.) I later found out there were a whole lot of other people from our ward running it. My goal time was 2:15:00, but I ran it in 2:03:41. I loved it!! I had bought some new running shoes (actually 2 pairs) the night before at the expo where I picked up my racing packet. I decided that I was going to wear them in the race, which is never highly looked upon, but I didn't care. My mentality was, It's only 13 miles. I got a few blisters, but I was going to get some either way. My next half marathon is in September in Virginia Beach and my goal time for that one is 1:50:00.
I only have 2 1/2 weeks until the Salt Lake Marathon. I'm excited and scared.....a little more scared than excited, though. Hopefully that will change soon. I got my marathon shoes in the mail last week. (I had ordered these before I went to the half marathon expo and bought the other two) They are gorgeous!!! If I get the iPod shuffle that I want they should match perfectly. I'm will be breaking them in the next few weeks. I'm excited to go back to Utah, and get away from here! Which reminds me, Steve is dating someone. A girl he works with at Sky Box. And....she's Mormon. He needs a swift kick in the buttocks. And I'd be happy to be the one to give it to him. Today I made the reservation for the pre-marathon dinner that we are having at Thaifoon. It should be a pretty good turn out. Around 20+ people. (Jake has not yet responded--also, someone who needs a swift kick in the buttocks.)
Well, I think that's about it for now. I can't wait to see what all of you post and to know how everything is going. Love ya
Aloha! Bon Voyage! and Alaska!
