After coming sooo close to Qualifying for the Boston marathon at the St. George Marathon; I decided to jump into another one FAST so we signed up for the Phoenix Marathon in February
Well, training wasn't the best, my body wasn't ready to jump back into intense training and I got a stress fracture in my foot ;(
Determined to still race since we already paid for it (of course we would still run!) I did most of my training miles on the bike and wished for the best
My friends sent me this good luck basket...yep, they are the best!
The best part of traveling to Phoenix meant being with family!...cute Georgia!Matt is a natural with kids!
Matt came in at 3:21...not his best race but it was solid considering his training
My goal was to finish without too much pain...My legs cramped up at mile 11 but I had no pain in my foot so I kept going...it was slow but I finished with a 4:27 Waaay off BQ time but that's ok ;)
It was a beautiful day and a nice weekend getaway from the cold, gray winter in Utah!
We were lucky enough to spend the last night with family in the BEAUTIFUL Arizona weather!
