Phoenix half marathon

Yep, we did it. Jumped in and ran the Phoenix half without paying. But hey, I would have gladly paid for it, but they sold out a month and a half ago.
This was the BEST half I've ever done! The course was almost entirely down hill, nice, decently staffed, and the finish line goodies were amazing. I wouldn't know since I didn't pay, but apparently the goodie bags that were given at number pick ups were pretty sweet too.

So I got a PR of 1:48:49! I'm very happy with that, especially considering my legs are still tired from the Ultra Ragnar last weekend. But this is all in the name of training for the Utah Valley Marathon in June where I'm hoping I can do it under 4:00.

And IRONMAN... training starts in a month!! Right when final prep, and paper writing will be in full swing. :(
Oh, and if you didn't hear about Ironman New Zealand this weekend, it was postponed a day due to a storm, and then they were only able to offer a 70.3 to the athletes. I have a friend who went down there for that. I'm crossing my fingers that nothing like that happens to us!!


  1. Congrats Kristin! I think you are in prime condition for Ironman! So happy for you. I hope you stay injury free. I was supposed to do that race but I just ASSUMED it was on a sunday. I had a jammed packed Saturday of family events.

    Keep up the good work!

  2. You are awesome! I think you'll be great for Ironman. I'm glad that you're legs/feet are healthy again. :)
