pure insanity...

Yes. I have reached complete insanity. I took Keith's marathon challenge back in April and surprised myself when I actually followed through with it on Saturday. The TOP of UTAH MARATHON! Keith, his dad Michael, and I made the trek up to Logan to run the race of a lifetime... (for me atleast). This was Michael's 2nd and Keith's 3rd - but the slowest they've ever run because I made them hang back with my short legs. The best news of all is... I FINISHED! 5 hours and 49 minutes later, we crossed the finish line! No, i take it back... the very best news of the day was that after burning 3,000+ calories, I really could eat WHATEVER I wanted. Weeee.

Walking it off at mile 15...
Chuggin' the Gatorade.

We did it! 
...and will probably never do it again!
