Layton Marathon

After the race. Jamie (Justin's sister) ran the half marathon

So I normally don't blog about me and only me, but on this one I had too. At the beginning of the summer I told myself that by the end of the summer that I was going to run a 10k. For a little history, I am not a runner, never have been, and at the time I couldn't even run a mile without dying. I could walk but not run. So when I set this goal I knew that it wasn't going to be easy. During the summer I had worked up to running 7.5 miles and thought that the 10k would be a breeze tell about 5 weeks before the race my knee started bothering me and I could barley run a mile and had to stop cause my knee hurt so bad. I went into the doc and got a steroid injected into my knee and about 1 week before the race I was able to start running again. So I was out of practice and was nervous that I wasn't going to be able to run the whole thing. Well I did it!!! It was such an accomplishment for me. The only bad thing was that I got mixed up on what time the race started and showed up 15 min after the 10k started so I had to start with the 5k runners which started 20 min after I was supposed to and just kept going. So my time that they have is 20 min longer then what I really ran it in which sucks but I at least know what my real time was. I ran it in 1 hour 1 min and 54 secs which is 9.74 min miles. Not to bad! It was great to have my family cheering me on at the finish line. Thanks for all of the support!! Now I'm training to run a half marathon! I really am liking this running thing and I'm glad that I set this goal. It really is an adrenaline rush and I wouldn't have accomplished any of this if I hadn't!
