What a beautiful day in Ogden, UT for a marathon!
A race, that last year was easily one of the worst marathon experiences of all time, to yesterday, being one of my favorite marathons ran to date. The morning was pretty chilly after we got off the bus at the starting line, but it was less crowded in the waiting area around the fires than in previous years. Might of had something to do with the last few years weather being unpredictable, cold, rainy, and very comparable to the Armageddon.
My wife and I were able to start and finish this marathon together, finishing with a time of 4:04:01. We stopped and took a few pictures along the way, ran at a pace to hold a conversation, and were able to actually enjoy the views without huffing and puffing and hitting a wall while attempting to set a PR or BQ. At the finish line, we jumped into the air and landed on the finish pad at the same time. Hopefully the photographers at the finish line were able to capture this special moment for us. Below is the photo our family was able to take of the two of us finishing.
Home run Ogden, thanks for the memories.
