Hawaii with the Piggotts

Spending time with the Piggott's

Big Finish!

Ogden Marathon 2011

We were able to go to Ogden, Utah on May 21st so that I could participate in my first full (26.2 miles) marathon. What an experience! I finished in 4 hours 45 minutes with no less than 7 bathroom stops, but I felt good at the finish line and I couldn't have done it without my sweet Alan helping me with my training and preparing. Alan ran the first half of the marathon with me and then hopped on a bus to greet me at the finish line. I didn't realize we would be so emotional, but it was and I was so happy to be at the finish line and still standing and feeling good. Thanks to our friends the Astin's for motivating me and doing the marathon also. This picture is of Marilyn Gerrard. She ran half of the marathon too. It was fun to be with our friends. After the marathon we were able to go to Kristi Astin and Jarom Zimmerman's wedding. It felt good to run 26 miles and then get dressed up for the wedding! We have the best friends and truly enjoyed our time together!Way to go Randy! Nice winter gloves.
Awesome Wendy! She even finished strong despite cramps in her calves starting at mile 8!
The weather was picture perfect and it felt so good to be done!
