Utah's Toughest 10K

I ran Utah's Toughest 10K at Soldier Hollow on Saturday. Before we started we were able to talk to one of the race directors. She told us that the course was difficult, but beautiful, and that the pace was 10 minutes slower than your average flat 10K pace. I'm glad she told me this because I had grossly underestimated the course. It was much more difficult than I had anticipated,but lucky for me I had an incredible running partner to help push me along. My friend Darcy Haas ran by my side the entire time, and I was able to finish the race in 58:32.2. I placed 2nd in my division (women ages 25-29) and 10th overall in women. Not bad for my second race! I'm excited to keep training harder and become a more competitive runner.

Competition? I didn't realize that that was part of racing. I'm always just bringing up the end of the pack. You ROCK.

I'm with Nicki; I thought the point of those races was to cheat death and crawl across the finish line. Go you for enjoying and excelling! P.S. Can we have a playdate at your house?

Are you kidding me? I can't believe how you have taken off and are running like the wind. Good for you.
