I did it! When I decided to run the Utah Valley Half Marathon I thought I might be crazy, it had been years since I had been anything close to in shape and even longer since I had run in a race. But, I have been working hard on actually accomplishing my New Year’s Resolutions. So I stuck to it.
All the effort paid off! I felt great the entire time I was running. The worst part of the whole day was waiting up the canyon in the freezing cold with a bunch of strangers. Although the skies threatened rain the whole time, it only sprinkled a little bit about a mile in to the run.
