Halfsies











I did it!!!! The long awaited day arrived! The Teton Dam Marathon has been looming over my head since we signed up for it back in April. I had doubts at times that I'd be able to pull off running 13 miles...but I did it!!! Saturday June 14th arrived and the weather was perfect. We ate a sturdy breakfast of oatmeal and a banana and heading off to the starting line. I ran the entire thing and finished in 2:09. My girlfriends and I finished within minutes of each other and then we milked the marathon for all it's worth by eating all the watermelon, bananas, oranges, jamba juice, and great harvest bread I could down. We also waited in a long line for a massage that was well worth it. I HAVE to do a half marathon again. I'm hooked.
