Ogden Half Marathon

If you’ve been following my journey here on the blog or instagram, you know I’ve been training for a full marathon. I ran a half last month and had signed up for a full this month. A few weeks ago, I realized I wasn’t at all trained for my marathon like I should be. I hadn’t done any runs longer than my half marathon. Between working nights and having a baby that doesn’t sleep well at night, I’m pretty tired most of the time. My friend that I was running this race with talked me into running the half with her. We had to be a bit sneaky and got onto the half instead of the full marathon bus but we made it!

 

We decided instead of racing for time, we would make it fun and stop at every mile marker to take a picture. We ended up running the whole thing at about a 10:30 average pace so we weren’t too slow either. I’m thinking I’ll wait until the baby is a bit older to try to train for anything longer, but a half marathon is still a big accomplishment. ­čÖé

    Congrats! A half is still way more than I could do. You’ll get to do your full marathon when the time is right.

    A half marathon and then a marathon was my dream. But I think that dream is out due to my knee:( I may train and we’ll see because I can’t let that dream go. You are such an inspiration!

    How fun!!! My husband is currently training for a 30 mile trail run. Crazy I tell you! You did the right thing going for the half. It’s better to wait then to finish hurting and hating the journey. Congrats!

    A half marathon is a big accomplishment indeed! Especially with a baby and night work, whoohoo! I love that you stopped to take pictures at every mile. I’ll have to remember to do that if I am ever able to run a half marathon again.
