Snow Canyon Half Marathon

 We had the GREATEST weekend!!  On Friday we loaded up the truck and took off on a 6 1/2 hour drive to Southern Utah.  Ryan and I registered to run the Snow Canyon Half Marathon and the boys were signed up to run the tuff kids 1 mile run.  We met up with my sister and her family (2 of her kids ran the '1 mile' run too).  My parents also made the drive down from Northern Utah to meet us. We also got to spend some quality time with my Grandma, Aunt and her kids!

Friday night we ate some DELICIOUS pizza from Pier 49 and picked up all the race packets.

The race was beautiful!!  I ran it 5 whole seconds faster than last year :)...1:52.20  I thought I'd do better than that, but started feeling sick around mile 7....SO I didn't finish as strong as I would have liked to...but still it was SO awesome!  Ryan did AWESOME and finished his 1st half in just over 2 hours...2:01.48!!  I think he is hooked and can't wait to run this one again next year :)

The boys and their 2 cousins ran the '1 mile' race that turned into 2 miles.  I guess there was a mix up with the volunteers at the 1/2 mile turn around, so they ended up turning around at one mile.  All the boys (13, 11, 8, 7, and 5) all ran 2 miles, but luckily the little girl cousin (4) got turned around at the right distance.  It's a good thing too, somehow she didn't make it to the race with running shoes and ran in her Toms and got blisters :(  Jake took 1st place overall in that race.

I was going to post a picture of all the runners together, but the only picture that my husband emailed me that I could open was the one of just our family...above. 
Pin It!
