There are only 10 days left to register for the Salt Lake City Marathon/Half Marathon/5K. The race is on Saturday, April 18th and the half and full marathons start at 7am. I'm crossing my fingers that the weather holds up. Last year when my sister-in-law, Allison, ran it the weather was perfect and I'm hoping we get the same luck this year. I ran the 5K in 2004 and loved it. The finish line is at the end of the Gateway. There is music, lots of people cheering. It's awesome and I guarantee if you do it, you will have a good time.
As for my half marathon training, I feel ready. I've had a couple really good long runs, met some short term goals, lost some weight and became healthier during this whole process. It's been a win-win situation. I'm already checking my calendar and planning for the next couple races this summer/fall. Thanks for all of your support over these past 9 1/2 months. I'm lucky to have such a great support system. I'm still throwing around the idea of a full marathon (26.2 miles) but don't know if my body is up for the challenge. My head is, for sure, now if I can just get my knees to agree with my head.
Back to the SLC races. Here is the registration link and hopefully we will see you there:
