Provo River Half Marathon

I completed my first race on saturday!! It was the Provo River Half Marathon; 13.1 miles beginning at South Fork and ending behind the Wynnsong Theaters. It was so much fun!!

Ella Bella patiently awaiting mommy's arrival; it was a very cold morning!

Boo munching, waiting for mom

Greeting my fam after the race.

I had a lot of fun doing this. I couldn't get anyone to do it with me, so I did it all alone!! One day I'm going to get Jake addicted to running. One day. Atleast when our kids are older so we can train together--right now I need a sitter!

The scenery was BEAUTIFUL. We are so blessed to live by our majestic mountains!! The route went right past Bridal Veil Falls; it was seriously so pretty. And I must say that I did better than I thought I was going to do. I ran it in 1 hour 40 minutes, and out of over 3,000 runners I came in #193. Not too shabby for this mommy of 2!! Let me also mention that I am EXTREMELY SORE!! My calves hurt so bad today I can barely walk. Aaah, but it's such a great feeling:) After the race there was a live band and a pancakes and fruit breakfast. It was delicious!

Halli couldn't bring herself to put down the watermelon to take a picture.....this girl loves her food!!

Next up: THE BIG ONE. Stay tuned to see if I survive......

Way to go!!! I'm so jealous. I wish I could go running but the thought of pushing a jogging stroller just doesn't appeal to me. Is the big one a full marathon?!

Patti said...'re amazing!! I can honestly say you didn't get your running skills from me!

Love ya, Mom

I am sooo proud of you. You are like the energizer bunny. You are awesome. I am sorry I didn't do it with you but I would have saw the waterfall and stopped for a rest@!

Michelle and Caleb said...

Good job on the run. i'm sorry that no one would do it with you. Next year I will do it with you. But I love that your dad bought a pony for the girls. To cute!

HOLY COW!!! OOPPS I mean Holy Horse and a short one at that. Nice job on the run. Why didn't you ask if I wanted to run it with you, I would of in a heart beat. Probably would of skipped a few heart beats while doing it but I would of ran it with you. The 5k's are getting to easy. See you guys at the cabin, bring your running shoes.

Good for you.

Way to go Tandi! I would have loved to do it with you! But Considering I have just gotten back into running since I have had my little dude it propbably wouldn't have been a good idea! I probably would have passed out! Maybe next year:)

Way to go! I am so impressed!

Kim said...

Tandi you did awesome!!! I think it is great that you are keeping yourself so fit and so darn cute. Your family is adorable and I love to look at your blog. I snuck in through Charayyes. Take care and keep up the running. You inspire me to start, and maybe in a couple of years:) I will run with you.
