Well, this is officially the first post to our blog. I'm sure we'll try to put some other extraordinary events from the last several months up here soon. But, I thought I'd start off with our weekend in St. George, UT.
Audra and I have been training for the St. George Marathon for the last four months and it has been terribly miserable. Personally, I don't know why I did it because I hated every minute of it. That being said, I think I'll do it again next year. I know I can put together a better time. I finished a minute over 4 hours and Audra came hobbling in about 18 minutes later. I think we'd both agree that it was probably the hardest physical activity that we've ever done.
All in all it was a fun experience, except for the people that kept saying, "Only a couple more miles!", and that number two I did at mile 23. If it weren't for that, I believe I would have achieved my goal of a time under four hours.
In case you're wondering, Audra and I are on the left and my sister, Sarah, and her hubby, Jon are with us. Several members of my family ran and are now experiencing the post-marathon immobility phase. Walking has never hurt so much.
