The Dam Marathon

Marathon Girl is amazing. Despite high winds, she ran 14 miles on Saturday as part of her training for her first marathon in two years. She didn’t complain once about the weather. All she talked about was how nice it felt run long distances again.

Right now her plan is to run the small but scenic Teton Dam Marathon (herby referred to as The Dam Marathon) in June and the St. George marathon in October (cross your fingers that she gets on the winning side of the marathon lottery.)

Her pace is very good considering she hasn’t done much long distance running the last two years because of pregnancy. Right now she could easily quality to run the Boston Marathon in 2008. If her body is doing well, she might even run another between St. George and Boston and are considering some warm January out of state options.

Until then, Marathon Girl is running, running, running. And the kids and myself are doing our best to keep up with her.
