St. George Marathon
I am happy to announce that I was selected in the lottery to participate in the St. George Marathon this upcoming October 4. A marathon that is apparently suited to one of my best strengths (running downhill), St. George is one I am eagerly looking forward to running. So you can imagine I was quite pleased to see this today:
Here is a little sample of what I have in store for me. While there is indeed a massive downhill section to the race, I am quite aware of the doozy of an uphill at 7.5 and also again at 10. If I can get past those, a huge PR will be mine. Also, in the chart below, you will see the Ogden Marathon I will be doing next weekend as well as the Top Of Utah Marathon in Logan, UT which is also on my list of possibilities.
It will indeed be a challenge but one I am eager and ready to take on!
To those who were unfortunate enough to not make it in this year, I extend my condolences and hope you find a suitable fall alternative.
