SLC Marathon Here I Come!

I did it! I took the plunge. I am going to run a 5K in the Salt Lake City Marathon Circuit. OK, I know that it is not a marathon but I am getting ready for a future half marathon and possibly a Ragnar (neighbor has a group and will see if there are any spots). I also want to do the Crazy Bob's Bar Gutsman. This is a 11 mile run up the Farmington Canyon.

I am running 7.5 per day (6 days a week). I run this in about 1 hour 10 minutes. Not bad. First few weeks I was trying to get my milage up. Now I am focusing on getting my speed up. Then I will go back to distance. I don't know if I am training right but oh well! I am new to this. This is the first time I have had a chance to do this--Not Pregnant anymore . Seems I was always prego in the past. Wish me luck!

  1. Good luck to you! Thank you for your comments. I started running in 2005. My first run was 1 lap around the HS track. I thought I was going to die. 6 weeks later I ran my first 5K and ran the entire way! I finished in 36 minutes, so pretty slow. But I was OK with that. Since then I have run over 20 races with the 1/2 being my longest distance. I trained for ST George Marathon last year and had to drop out after my 20 mile training run due to an injury - had surgery a month later. Yuck! Way to go - I love to hear of new runners. I will be in the 5K as well, my first run since my surgery. I wish you all the luck and you will do great! Keep running!
