St. George Marathon 2009

We did it again. First let me say congrats to Matt, who killed it again, my cousin Destiny, who completed here first marathon with an amazing time and a smile on her face the entire time, and to my good friend Lacey who was 2 months+ pregnant. You all inspire me. The weather was amazing, the terrain was beautiful, the race was awesome. My time was slow 4:37, but I beat my last years time by 2 minutes. I wish I was faster, and I'd like to blame it on my lack of time to train from the move, but maybe it's just a lack of commitment. Not sure, but I really only trained for 2 months. It's only been less than two weeks since the marathon , and as I drive around the city and track 26 miles in the car, I can't believe anyone runs 26 miles straight. But we did.

While in Utah, we also got to take the kids to Zions to climb around on someof the rocks.

You guys are so great! I feel awful that I didn't get to see you or hang out after the marathon! Happy to report that I am feeling good and everything is fine. I am no longer allowed to run, and I miss it! Almost as much as I miss our date nights. I'm still planning a trip to CALI in 2010...except we'll be a family of four by then!!
