I decided to join to hold myself accountable for my training and because I love learning from others running experiences.  I just started running a little over a year ago and have a lot to learn.  I work fulltime as a Manager of Telecommunications for Intermountain Healthcare and go to school online through Weber State University.  If you want to know more check out my blog:

I absolutely love this race and think it is so cool that they put it on each year.  It has become a tradition to run it every year with my sister and this year Amber was making the big jump from the 5K to the 10K.  I was really excited for her and yesterdays race was all about her.

After my failed run Sat I had quite low expectations for my own performance.  I just wanted to have fun and run at a pace comfortable enough as to not aggravate my feet.  The 10K course is really hard in my opinion and I am very happy with how I ran.  The start was a little chaotic as Carina and I were kind of stuck in the middle of the pack and I may have started my watch late because I had no real idea the race was starting.  But my watch measured 6.11 mi at 38:58 (6:22 pace), official time may have me over 39 I am not really sure.  Splits were:  6:13, 6:30, 7:02, 6:28, 6:11, 5:55, 5:46. <----pretty good example of terrible pacing but that hill+headwind at mile 3 really was hard!

Highlights of the race/day:

  • Finally meeting Carina in person!  So fun to warm up/cool down and chat with her a bit.  What an incredible women and runner she is.
  • My angel JulieC showing up on the bike at mile 2.5 and riding with me for a lot of the race.  I was not talking back as much as usual but I was loving her stories. :)
  • Meeting Brandon's little boy who totally rocked the 5k and then coached his little brother through the 1 miler.  What a little stud!
  • Getting beat by a 15 year old!  That kid was legit.....every time I surged close to him he would surge harder.  Sheesh I was totally impressed.
  • Seeing my Dad at mi 6 marker and yelling at me to pick it up and beat the kid!  I was trying....
  • My sister absolutely rocking the race.  She ran 55:28 and surged so hard at the end Carina, Spence, and I could barely keep up.  It was really really exciting and the greatest part about it is she loved it and now wants to do a half marathon.

It was really just a great day and seeing so many of my friends and having my family there at the was just perfect.  I know I am completely cheesy but I just really love running.  This race was good to pull me out of my funk and put things into perspective.
