D runs her first marathon!

Yes, that slug coming down the finish way is me!! On April 21, 2007 D finished the Salt Lake Marathon. I always said I'd never do it, but somehow decided it just one of those things everyone should do at least once in their life. Originally I was training for the Moab 1/2 marathon. After running in from that, Jay asked me if I could've kept running another 13.1 miles to 26.2. I thought, "i've trained this far, I might as well keep on going." I highly recommend the Moab 1/2. It's beautiful, still challenging, and you recover a lot faster than the full marathon! The lottery for the moab 1/2 is in November for any of you that want to run it with me next March! I'm undecided if I will do the Salt Lake Marathon next year...

My close V High School friend Heather from California ran the Salt Lake Marathon also. She's fast~ qualified for the Boston Marathon. My time (4:26) qualified me to watch it on T.V.

Good for you! You are my hero. I have to agree that I don't think I will ever be interested in running a marathon...but you never know. I did the triple crown of running here in Louisville this year-I never thought I would want to do that either, but I'm so glad I did. I may consider the Moab 1/2 marathon. Hmmmmmm.

I am SO glad you have a blog!! When I found out about this blogging thing, you were one of the first people I thought of that should have one. Now, you just need to post more! I miss you and am SO proud of you running the marathon. I hope you all are doing great!
