I ran the Dino Half Marathon on May 14, 2016, in Vernal Utah this year, for the first time. I really enjoyed traveling out with my family and spending time with a few of my running friends.
Here we are on the bus getting to the start line.
Dino Half Marathon Finishers!
Nathan ran the 5K and did a great job! He placed 3rd in his age division and got a PR. His time was 32:24:7 for a pace of 10:27.
Sha and I ran together the whole time. I'm so grateful for her friendship and for her presence by my side for this race. It is so nice to have someone who can push me when I'm feeling weak.
We both PR'd. I ended up with a chip time of 1:52:41.1 for a pace of 8:36. I placed 5th in the F 35-39 division. The course was beautiful, but was much more of a gradual decline than I was anticipating with a lot of rolling hills.
Just before the finish line, Sha started sprinting and I, of course, had to keep up. My finish line photos are not pretty!! Next time I sprint, I'll have to remember to sprint pretty!
