Provo River Half Marathon
August 12, 2006

We did it! My first half-marathon in 3 years and it felt great. We had a great race and finished 2 minutes earlier than in 2003. Go figure. The race started up at South Fork in Provo Canyon which can typically be really cold but the weather the day of the race was great. We kept a steady pace for most of the race and were able to finish strong. Around mile 12 is when the exhaustion started to take over but it wasn't anything we couldn't handle. It was awesome to have Mom, Tasha, Dale, Blake and Cade there at the end to cheer us on. I love that I could run 13.1 miles and it didn't kill me, I was still able to enjoy my Saturday shopping with Tasha.
Mile 12.5

My Dad and I have still been running everyday. We run from the mouth of Provo Canyon to a little past Canyon Glen each morning. It is 6 miles round trip. It is so pretty up there and for some reason the time goes by so much faster. I do enjoy working out first thing in the morning and not having to go after work. I don't know if we will do anymore races anytime soon but it is good to have a goal to work towards something.
