Race: St George Marathon (26.2 Miles) 04:42:31, Place overall: 2838, Place in age division: 29

The 42nd annual Running of the St George Marathon, at St George Utah, and my 14th St Geo Marathon and my 59th Marathon overall. It was a cold rainy overcast Marathon day, not the worst, not the best, just a stroll in the cold & rain. Decided early to run the entire marathon w/Troy for moral support. The 10 year club banquet was great and there were so many of my past and present friends in attendance. Now it’s time to get recovered and ready for the University of Utah Homecoming 5k on the 20th of October!
