Utah Valley Marathon: Count Me In!



This newspaper ad has been hanging in my house for some time now as a constant reminder of my goal to run a marathon this summer in celebration of turning 30. Since I couldn't get into the Seattle Rock N Roll marathon, I have decided to do the Utah Valley Marathon. It is on June 13. Their slogan is "26.2 miles of the pain you love." I totally get that and can't wait. My 20 mile run is going to be this weekend. Wooohoooo. I'm actually really looking forward to it.

So are any other Utah girls running this marathon??

I'm Jealous...I've heard about the race and it seems like a great course. I'm in between just running a marathon and training for St. George so I can't do it this year...Maybe next. You'll have to let us know how it goes!

Good luck! I think that marathon running for birthdays is a great idea. But that's probably because I did it for my 30th too.

Hey I might be there to cheer! It will be the week between a Tri and Wasatch back so I think it will be wise for me to just cheer at this one :) Who know though!
