RACE #100: South Davis Handcart Days Half Marathon

WOW. What an experience. What a race. What a moment. Even after a couple days as I write down my thoughts and feelings I am in awe of the support and celebration I received throughout the race and at the finish line. It really still feels surreal.

A couple years ago 2013 was my fastest running year. No marathons, just half marathons. And, I averaged between 2:10-2:25 depending on the course and weekend. I even set my current PR at the Nebo Half (2:08). Life was good….
