My first STGM is in the books! What a perfect day to run a marathon. Run was about as good as I could've hoped for with my training the last few months. The only real bummer about the race was getting a serious blister on the bottom of my left foot. I knew I was in trouble about 3-4 miles into the race! My foot was already aching so I was running in all kinds of positions. I didn't listen to the advice I got to take the first half of the race a little easier then the second half - it caught up to me. The wheels started to fall off around mile 18 and were off the last three. Here's the damage:

Mile 1 and 2 pretty strange running in the dark: 8:20, 8:34

Mile  3-7 feeling great except for the burning foot: 7:40, 7:41, 7:47, 7:36, 7:25

Mile 8 Veyo Hill: 8:51

Mile 9 -  11 roller ups tough section: 8:19, 8:17, 8:33

Mile 12 -  14 starting to think I pushed a bit to hard on the first half: 8:05, 7:40, 8:17

Mile 15 - 17 some needed down hill (legs starting to feel it): 7:38, 7:39, 7:52

Mile 18 -  23 Just trying to hold it together walking through the aid stations at this point to hyrate - starting to get a bit warm: 8:33, 8:46, 8:40, 8:16, 9:49, 8:59

Mile  24-26.25 my brother Anthony jumped in here and ran the rest of the way with me. I'm sure he was like what is wrong with you. He kept me from completly falling apart. 8:47, 9:08, 9:09, last .25 at 8:13 pace.

After the race had to jump in the car and head back home! The legs are starting to feel it, but all in all I would say - had a great time!!

An awesome morning run on the North Arm trail. Went to Wind surfer beach and back. A couple great things about this run - the weather, the trail, and it was my first serious run without the calf sleeve. My leg felt great.

It's SNOWING! so, another early morning Tm session. Incline 1.0. Nothing really good on that early. Even the music videos are lame'o. Hope the up-n-over is NOT to buried wiith snow.

Happy Halloween! - Well not the race I was hoping for - even though it was a great one. Took off way to fast so, about .7 up the 1st mile I new I was in trouble. Had to start the walk run method until I got to the top of the North Ogden pass. I Started over heating a bit and needed some water. Once I hit the top I took advantage of the downhill next two miles (6:48, 6:38) not sure what the last .6 was I forgot to stop the watch again.... Great times - even if my older brother beat me - it must be those new yellow shoes!
