St. George marathon day. First, I want to join the bloggers in thanking Clyde and Mik'L for the great blogger party last night. It was fun to finally put some faces with some blogger names.
Day of the race- my marathon was TOU 3 weeks ago, I was just here to cheer and help. I got dropped off at mile 16, ran to 17, then cheered on the first 30 or so runners. When Cody showed up, I picked up with him and ran almost the whole way to the finish. I have to say, it is much more enjoyable to run the last 9 miles of a marathon when you haven't done the first 17. It was tons of fun to see all the bloggers at the finish line- many of them set PR's, some by 10-20 minutes. Awesome. Congrats especially to my previous pacers, Paul and Logan, for qualifying for the Olympic Trials. It is well deserved and the result of many, many hours of hard work (or, in Paul's case, many, many hours of naps). Nice job!
