It's been years since Marathon Girl has run a marathon since having lots of kids tends to get in the way of something that can take three months of more to train for. But now that we've finished growing our family, she's been training hard for her next race. Today, however, she ran the Big Cottonwood Marathon and finished in a time of 3:50:56. It wasn't quite as fast as she was hoping for but was happy with the results considering she had a baby nine months ago.
We're in the process of planning her next race. Her goal will be to Boston Qualify and run the Boston Marathon in 2018. For me, it was great to see the smile on her face again as she crossed the finish line.
