Good luck at the half this weekend. It is my favorite, if I did not have other plans I would be there for sure. Looks like you guys are going to get some good weather, too!

Thanks Kelli. You're not going to cancel your Boston marathon trip to come watch me finish the Salt Lake half? Gosh! Good luck to you (and Scott). Have a great time!!

If I had to choose between the races, I would pick the SL half, it is THE BEST!!!! But, for just this year, I chose Boston.

Enjoy that fun finish line, you will feel like a hero!
