Matt ran a marathon a couple of years ago and when he finished he said he would NEVER, EVER, EVER run one again. Well, he lied. We got two passes for the Ogden marathon (which is so hard to get into these days without a connection). I wanted one but since I was due at the end of April a marathon 4 weeks later wasn't going to happen so Matt decided he would do it. He took one pass and gave the other to his co-resident at work. He trained so hard and cut his time by 30 minutes. Part of his training was a 16 mile trail run on Antelope Island. It ended up being a beautiful March day and he didn't get attacked by a buffalo. The day of the Ogden marathon in May it started raining the day before and never stopped. It was a long and cold 26 miles but he did it (and beat his time). It was an adventure getting the kids there and keeping dry. But we loved seeing him cross the finish line. Once again after he finished he said he was done running full marathons. Given how much time he spent training for this one, I am ok with that!!
