|Before the start of the Utah Marathon and Fittest State Festival|
|Andrea, Kevin, and Allie finishing the 5K|
Over the weekend we ran in the Utah Fittest State Festival. I ran the Half-Marathon / 5K double dipper w/ about a half-hour rest between races (not as fun as it sounds!), while Andrea put on a racing bib for the first time in almost 3 months - pacing a friend (who was also doing the Half/5K double) in the 5K.
Our full race recaps are here: Jake - Andrea
It was a fun morning and a good workout for both of us. I'm slowly but surely getting back to 100%... not quite fully recovered from the TOU Marathon yet (the hammy that I pulled during that race is still a bit of a nuisance). Andrea is starting to build her mileage back up, and is on the upswing from a annoying string of injuries.
For a first year event, the Utah Marathon did a nice job. Tough courses, but that's a nice change of pace from all the downhill events we have in Utah. My race recap above shows the elevation profile of both races.
