A couple of years ago I started running with the Generation Gap running group. They all run marathons, lots of marathons. It only took a few months of running with them to be convinced that I needed to run a marathon (Top of Utah). That was almost 2 years ago. After not running a marathon last year, I decided to kick off this year's racing season with the Ogden marathon. Utah weather is so crazy, and we had tons of rain the week of the marathon. I was so nervous about the weather and what I was going to wear(probably not the thing I should have been most worried about). We could not have asked for better weather. It was the perfect day. The course is beautiful, and I loved it. 26.2 miles is kind of long, but I did it! Now I'm wondering what in the world made me think 3 marathons in one year would be a good idea.

at the finish line
Kelly came and ran the last 3 miles with me. I was so happy to see her and have some company for the last few miles.
Becca and I went together. It was great having a friend before the race especially since I didn't run into any of my other friends that were running.


  1. Alright you are wonder woman! Marathons, that is some craziness. Congrats a million times over. That is huge!

  2. That's awesome! How are your knees? Mine have been acting up so I haven't done any extensive running in a while. Just jogging/speed walking with the baby stroller. I won't if I could do a marathon that way... :-)

  3. Congrats! I found your blog from Marianne's. What other marathon's are you doing this year!?

  4. Wahoo! Congrats Aubrey. What an accomplishment. Good luck with the other two marathons. Come run the Provo River Half on Aug. 7. That's what I'm training for this spring/summer.
