St. George 1/2 Marathon

January 18, 2014

Well my girls were up at 5:30 this morning. I think the whole hotel room was way exciting for them. So the morning began for the 1/2 marathon race. I am so appreciative for my friend Amber D. for sharing her room with the girls and I! It did make it a lot easier to not have to get the kids up at 4 and drive to St. George this morning. Corom and Mike left at 4:45 a.m. to meet up and run the 5k… Corom was driving and was, of course, pulled over…

Thank goodness he was given a warning… We met at the starting line at 8:15. Corom pushed the girls in our 4 kid stroller for the 5k…

He did well and the girls love it! The 1/2 marathon started 10 minutes after. The first 7 1/2 miles was all up hill. There would be a hill and a little down, then another long uphill, with a little down, etc. From 7 1/2 to 8.25 was a steep down. We ended up on a bike trail and ran the rest on the trail. It was mostly flat. At mile 9 I started to struggle! About the 10 mile marker, I took a Gu with caffeine in it. That helped me to finish the rest of the race. (I took a Gu at mile 5). I finished the race with a 1:22.11.

I was tired coming down that last stretch! I did get a little boost of energy when I saw Corom and the kids (that is my youngest out in the road).

Oh on a side note… Corom bought those pants for me… Thanks Corom! 🙂 I took 3rd behind Kassi and Sierra. I know Kassi well… She is an amazing runner!!! Very strong and works hard. I ran a total of 16 miles today. 2 mile warmup with Amber D, Amber A, and Kassi and then a 1 1/2 mile cool down with Amber D. I then ran a half a mile with my girls in their Tuff Kids 1/2 mile race. They loved it… They got their own medal!

Amber D ran really well… She had a 10 min PR from last year! She Rama 1:38. I had to give her a little shout out! Great job!
We loaded up and drove home… Much better coming home (a lot of potty stops)! Corom dropped me off at the Clarion Gardens and I worked there until 9:45 p.m. There was a wedding tonight and we served a ice cream bar. It was a lot of fun…

Back at home, Corom had quite the mess to clean up… Our 2nd child threw up all the candy she ate (Corom’s fault :))…

(Sorry to descriptive)…. And our youngest had an accident in her pants and he only wishes it was just pee. 🙂 I came home and the Fullmer’s came down and we watched a movie. Fun times! I’m tired now.
