Vernal run!  I did not have my Garmin so I used a simple watch to time my run.  I ran for an hour and I am guessing I ran around 7.

Beautiful run in the Uintah Basin at elevation.

5.1 miles on 41 minutes outside.

Spin class.

5 miles on the TM in 42 minutes.

I am so tired today!  I could barely spin without falling asleep today.  I have found that my body is now on automatic pilot when it works out.  It just knows what to do when all circuits of energy are down.

I have mixed emotions about my race performance today.  I will point out some of those feelings.

A.  I felt like I could have done better.

B.  I recently came off of an injury and I have not put in my maxed out effort, as far as mileage is concerned.

C.  I am truly thankful that I was actually able to run today.  A few months ago I did not even consider doing this race.

D.  Friends.  As I race I was cheered on by David and my brother Riley.  It felt good to run and be recognized.  I also loved seeing RAD in her AWESOME shirt. 

E.  I have so much to improve on before the Ogden half.

F.  So dang happy I was not doing the full.

G.  So dang happy I don't have a full marathon on my schedule right now.

Details:  I slept on my brother's love sac last night and probably totaled 4 hours of sleep.  Waited for Trax to pick me up at the Energy Solutions arena for about 20 minutes.  I had a friend there running the full marathon and we were able to chat a little about what he was about to experience.  Rode the crowded Trax train up to the U.  Got to the start and met David at the bridge.  We were able to use a bathroom in the ROTC training center and avoided the porta chaos all together!  Started the race too fast like I usually do, and found my pace at about mile 5.  

I think the best part of the race was David following me on his bike cheering for me!  He is COOL.  There was also a guy on the side of the road cooking bacon at about mile 8.  YUM.  I love random things you see while you run races.  Pretty sure the bacon boy is at the top of the 'random list.'

I talked to RAD at the finish and admired her prego shirt.  The shirt read "If you think I am having fun, I am not!  The fun part was seven months ago!"  She only continues to kick trash in my book!  If I ever have children she told me I could borrow her shirt. :)  

The volunteers were great, post race fuel was awesome, but picking up your race bag at the finish was a joke!  My brother and I also stuck around the Gateway and watched the marathon finishers come in.  I continue to be inspired at races and my running addiction only worsens with each race I do.  

Came home and swam a mile. :)

As for sleep...Who needs it?

I went BaNdIdO today at a local race.  I wanted to get some decent miles in and figured I could do so with other runners.  First year for this race and they had a great turn out.  I have no clue where I would have finished.  Top 10 ladies maybe?  I don't know.

Comparing this race to last week I felt a lot better.  Sleeping throughout the week makes a big difference in the way I feel when I run.  At the end of the race I still had energy unlike last week.  Race speed is still not where I would like it to be, but that will come.  

 This course was also a lot more difficult than the SLC half in my opinion.  A lot of steep inclines up and down the golf course and switch backs through the gardens.  Beautiful run and I might consider racing it next year.  I also ran with Melanie B until mile 8.  I lost her there due to stopping at the POPs. 

Went to the LC for a 1 mile swim.
