My family went up to Ogden this weekend for the Ogden Marathon. We stayed at the Best Western Hotel, and they had this nice park with a pond, fish, waterfall, etc. We didn't have a lot of time Friday night because we got there kind of late. We just went to the Union Station to pick up my race packet, then had dinner at a restaurant by the hotel, then went behind the hotel so the kids could see the fish, eat their suckers, etc.

Here are the crowds the morning of the race. It was FREEZING! I had sweats on and I was shivering to death! The start is near Huntsville.

These fire barrels were so wonderful! What a brilliant idea. They had a bunch of them scattered all over the field. It felt SO nice to be able to get warm!

And here I am finishing.

I'd have to say this course is my new favorite! It was gorgeous country and mountain scenery. There was hardly any uphill. LOTS of flat and downhill, especially near the end when you need it! My time (not including potty breaks), was 3:55:38, and my "official" chip time is 4:01:38. It was a great day, and I'm looking forward to doing that one again someday. Now I think I'll give my body a break for a while!

you are amazing. I could believe I was reading you were doing another one. But you're trained for it and could do it where I couldn't. Great job on your time!!

Way to go, yet again! Wahoo! Love the pictures of the kids eating their suckers- so genuine! Good time on your marathon, did Trinidee cry this time over the medal?
