Top of Utah Marathon


The Top of Utah Marathon was a great experience. It was so great having most of our family there (Caleb had 2 soccer games in Idaho) I finished my first Marathon in 4:09. Kevin and Shanna Duke were great hosts(thanks guys). I hit a major wall @ mile 17 but thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The absolute best part was seeing Nanette and the girls at the finish line. No major injuries and amazing scenery along the way. I'm hoping to do the SLC marathon with Matt and Shane. Nanette, Hannah & Caleb may do the 5k. I saw a bumper sticker that weekend that said, "running a marathon is cheaper than psychotherapy". After the year we have had I may need to run several more.

Wow, John! I wish I had half the endurance you do. I get tired just going up and down the stairs these days. I really need to get in shape. Of course then again, round is a shape, right!

Hi Nanette and Jon! What a cute family you have. Time has passed quickly hasn't it? I'm so excited to have found your blog. We need to catch up somehow and get together...
