In the past 6 weeks I have run 2 full marathons, and the Wasatch Back Ragnar Relay.
The first was Ogden. Training was rough! I got ITBS in the middle of my training, and I doubted whether or not I would even be able to make it to the start. This was nothing new. I pushed forward. My Aunt Kathy passed away a week and a half before the race. I was overcome with grief- I would rather cry than run. My heart had moved from my goals, to much more important things. Come race day, as I was riding up on the bus I was so humbled as I thought about the task that was before me. I was going to run a full marathon! One day, I wouldn't be able to do this anymore- that wasn't that day. No matter my goal time, I was happy and humbled to finish. I ran a 3:38:52, 4 minutes off my goal time. I ran into the finish with Annie, and I wouldn't have changed a single moment of the race.
