Training Run Race (and giveaway winner)

Happy Friday y'all. I'm sure you are all dying to know my weekend race plans (and some of you are dying to know the giveaway winner). Well, most important things first. Me. This is my blog after all. As many of you know, May 15 was once the date that would mark my second marathon. Yes, the Ogden Marathon is tomorrow. No, I haven't decided to run it.

After deciding to change to the half marathon several months ago, my registration status never reflected the change and I couldn't get a response from anyone by phone or email about it, so I resigned myself to trying to run the full and then finally decided to not run it at all. Then a few weeks ago, I decided I would go pick up my race packet and get my t-shirt anyway and pulled up the web site to get details about the expo. On a whim, I checked my registration status again, and it showed me running the half. Finally. So tomorrow I am running the Ogden Half Marathon.

This will be my second half marathon. My third, the Utah Valley Half Marathon, is on June 12 and I really want to train well over the next four weeks so I can PR, so I am treating tomorrow's like a training run. I don't have a time goal and even considered taking my camera but decided it would probably be annoying to carry for two hours. For the record, my half marathon PR is 2:00:42.

Now enough about me. It's time for the giveaway winner. After consulting, the winner is:

Just send me (ihaverun[at]hotmail[dot]com) your name and email address and you will get an email about how to claim your prize!

RUN: I'm on the fence about the new shoes. I gave them a two mile test run yesterday and will give them another go next week. I'm almost wondering if they are too cushiony (not sure that's a word, but you know what I mean).


  1. Crazy!! I will have to start working on something to have printed! Thank you so much!

  2. Good luck tomorrow! Have a great run!!!!!

  3. Best of luck this weekend...I think doing one now and the second one in a few weeks should set you up nicely to PR.

  4. Have a great "training" run this weekend!

  5. Good luck at the half-marathon today!
