As you all know I had originally planned to run the full marathon on April 18th, but then I was presented with the opportunity to run the Ragnar Zion’s Trail Series April 24th-25th and I just couldn’t pass it up so I dropped down to the half so that I can do both! Yay!
After my train ride home I went to Cafe Rio for a chicken salad, then went home ate, stretched, showered and then took a nap. It was an amazing day!
My time was 2:19:43, I came out too fast and paid for it in the end, but I tried not to let that bother me too much. I had an amazing time and really enjoyed the race and running through Memory Grove and finishing at our amazing Downtown Library, it is a really beautiful library.
This week I have Ragnar and I am so excited, this will definitely be a first for me, my first trail race, my first Ragnar trail series and a first for running through Zions. I can’t wait!
My training for the Big Cottonwood Canyon Marathon starts May 10th, the day after my Goldilocks Half Marathon! I have a new training strategy that I am excited to share with you I just have to work out a few tweaks
Have a good Wednesday! I will be sure to take plenty of pictures for you! .
