And The Winners Are..

The Thanksgiving Point Half Marathon.
I will be running this with my mom, ON HER BIRTHDAY, April 30th. I absolutely cannot wait to do this with her. It will be a very special experience.

Utah Valley Full Marathon. This marathon sounds absolutely amazing! The scenery is going to be so incredible. It goes past rivers and lakes, through mountains and canyons, etc. It is also known to be a very fast course. Perfect for a P.R. I am pretty nervous, because I am running for time, but it makes it all the more exciting.

Just 6 days after the marathon, I will be participating in the Ragnar, June 17-18. as mentioned in the previous post. The timing isn't the greatest with the marathon, but it will be fine. I will just have to adjust my training accordingly.

And there you have it! 2 years ago, I spent the month of June sick and on the couch with mono and severe blood loss as a result of losing our precious baby. Last June, I spent the month having a baby (which was a miracle and a gift) and figuring out his protien condition, while saying goodbye to my dear grandpa who passed away that same week, while packing up for a big and very hard move. This June, I will be running a Marathon and the Ragnar! What a month! I wonder if my parents knew what they were in for when they gave me my middle name...June.

Let the training begin!

HOLY CRAZY RUNNING WOMAN! I'm trying to get up the courage for a half marathon this summer in England, and you've now inspired me to really go for it.

You're awesome! And kinda crazy.
