Top Of Utah Half Marathon

This last Saturday I ran the Logan half marathon with my two running buddies Mistee and Jana. This was the first time that I had friends running with me, which made the whole experience so much better. The first four miles were a little more painful than usual since I was nursing a broken rib which made breathing a bit more difficult. I think that it just went numb after a while, or I just stopped paying attention because it didn't hurt for the rest of the race. My time was 1 hour 44 minutes... I was hoping to make this a faster time than my last, but I'm just glad I could run it at all after breaking my rib the week before. The best part of it all was my Judd and my baby girl waiting for me at the end. Mistee and Jana did really well for thier first half marathon. Can't wait to run some more! I forgot how addicting racing was.

I was pretty proud of myself for running a stupid 5k 2 months post baby and look at you.....a freakin half marathon with a broken rib!

Congrats Leslie! You should not worry about beating your previous time. There's no doubt you would have beaten it without a broken rib. BTW, you're one strong runner, mentally and physically.
