As many of you know I am part of the Run Your Race Pacers of Utah. Jorge is El' Presidente, Holly is the CNO and I am the COO of RYR, we came up with that just now. I am getting so excited about the upcoming race season. I can’t believe that our first race is only 7 weeks away. The Dino Half Marathon is in Vernal. We paced this race last year and everyone loved it. It runs down Dry Fork Canyon which is beautiful.
Sadly I don't have any pictures of Dry Fork Canyon, but I do have this little beauty. Welcome to the gun show, we've got fun in games ;)
I won't tell you how many attempts it took us to get a pic with both of us in the air...we're special!
This is a smaller race, which I love. I don’t know if you’ve ever done a Runtastic Events Race but they are always awesome. We will be pacing all of their races which include:
Dino Half Marathon May 3rd
Timpanogos Half Marathon July 19th
Nebo Half Marathon Sept 6th
If you want to know where all the cool kids will be, I just told you. I love racing and trying to hit a goal but there is something wonderful about helping others achieve their goals. Plus, it takes the pressure off of having to PR. As a runner you figure out pretty dang quick that every race can’t be a PR, which at times can be quite disheartening. For some people if they can’t “race” a race then they just don’t do it. Not me, I love getting ready to pace a race knowing that I actually get to enjoy the run. I get to take it a bit slower than I normally would. I get to chat and enjoy the scenery. Last year one of my favorite pacing experiences was at the Dino Half, where I ran with a couple doing their first half marathon. It was awesome!
I have race reviews of all the above races, you should check them out.
I think it would be wise if you signed up for one or ALL of these races...right now. If you do 3 of the above mentioned races you earn yourself a special medal.
I'll let you go now, I know you have things to do like sign up for a race or 5 :)
