Provo, UT

Maggie and I woke up at 3:30am (BLECH!) and drove to Provo to get on a bus to drive up the canyon to run 13.1 miles back down to the city. Why?! I guess we love running or something.
It's so fun to run half-marathons with Maggie cause we talk the whole way. Half-marathons are nice that way cause I don't feel pressure about a time. We kept a good pace and I was very pleased that I wasn't sore or anything the next day. We came in at 1:58.
I was pretty disappointed in the race organization though. Besides the start and finish lines, there were ZERO port-a-potties during the race. Very frustrating. When we were out of the canyon and headed toward the finish line in the city there were hardly any people out to support the racers. It's like Provo didn't even know there was a race going on. All good though, Maggie and I high-fived and ate a bagel at Einsteins and called it a morning.
