If you are visiting from Runners’ Lounge, just check out the training segment (video number three). This is a quick (and funny) what not to do when training for your distance races. If you are preparing for your first long race and want a little knowledge about what it’s like (if you are slow and under trained), you can check out my other videos on this post and this post.
For the rest of you, just a warning before watching. All of these are kind of offensive. I sing in two of them (and it’s awful, out of breath, out of tune singing) and swear in one, and there’s a crazy old guy dancing in another. If you don’t want to watch them, that’s okay. They give even me nightmares. Although, the “training” video is pretty funny.
Here we all are, the morning after; exhausted from both the race and our crazy hike after it (yes…we thought hiking to Delicate Arch would be a good idea).
Anne’s parents are my favorite. Seriously. They were fabulous for the marathon (the full in St. George) and it was so fun to drive up to Anne’s house and see this sign in the window! Thank you! Thank you!
And with that, I end my half-marathon posts (I still have some Moab stuff). I hope you have enjoyed the video journey of an under trained runner. If this has not convinced you to train before attempting distance races, I’m not sure what would. Although, hopefully, you can tell that I was enjoying myself.
Glad you finished your marathon. Video journaling is a great idea.
Am smiling at the videos. Thanks for sharing them and the whole race experience.
seriously, it was like i was really there. i know those races, chloe. the ones you are just glad they are over. way to go!
What, you guys went hiking afterwards? That is INSANE.And your hoodies at the end seriously rock.
congrats to you. Anyone who runs that distance for that long rocks. I can’t believe you went hiking after. I would have been in bed for about a week.
What a great race report! Loved the videos.
Wow…impressive! The fact that you did the race AND had the wherewithall to record funny videos in the middle? Fabulous.
You’re enjoyable. I love the videos. I am even thinking maybe I don’t want the self-confidence to dance by myself in the middle of strangers….
Awesome! You guys so rock for finishing it and making me realize that it will be fun even if I am not as prepared as I think I should be in April! And hiking right after-wow. That sign is awesome too!
Pretty sure my marathon report is not going to be anywhere near that interesting. 😉 Congrats on getting it done.
