Crazy Weekend!

I would have to say that this past weekend was pretty eventful. First off, I finally graduated! Yes, technically  I have been done with school since December, but I was finally able to walk during UVU's spring graduation ceremony on Friday.

The next great thing I was able to do this weekend was run the Thanksgiving Point Half Marathon. I was pretty worried after I found out that it was supposed to be 31 degrees and snowing the morning of the race, and the thought of not doing the race at all crossed my mind. Despite all that, I decided to give it a try, and it ended up being so great! Todd was a great coach, and helped me get ready for the race. I was so lucky to have him there with me, I don't think I could have done it without him ;-)

The course was a lot tougher than I had anticipated- there were so many hills! But I made it through, and now I can't wait to run the Kanosh 5k and the Red Rock Relay later this year! Yay!

Stretching in the only dry spot we could find  

Waiting to start the race!

Crossing the finish line! I made it!


  1. Congrats and Congrats!! I did a half marathon a couple years ago and it was a lot harder than I thought too. Way to go!!

  2. I love this post. I love your graduation and your wicked sweet running skills. I love your sexy stretching and Todd's tough coaching.


  3. I was registered for a half marathon last August and never ended up doing it, or even training for it for that matter :) I still want to do one though some day. You are my hero!

  4. Yay! I'm glad you had such a good weekend! Good job on the run...I'm glad the weather wasn't too bad. Woo hoo! Thanks for the info on the flights...I have seen that deal, we just need it to go through July and we will buy them:)

  5. Looked cold but good for you! You are motivating me to start running alot more.
