Matt and I headed up to Logan Friday afternoon. Emily had her first overnighter without us at her grandparents' house. Thanks guys! We got there around 4, which was a little unusual for us because we are usually getting to the race location fairly late in the day and rushing to get everything done. So it was nice to get there a little early and have time to relax a little. We carbo-loaded at the Olive Garden (and we didn't even have to wait an hour for a table! We got right in!)
Then we went for a walk by the temple and around the Utah State campus.
We found this funny sign! Ha!
Here I am getting ready to start the race. It was pretty cold for the first hour or so, but the rest of the day was perfect!
|The start line. We were escorted out of town by motorcycle cops.|
They had lunch at Mile 58. Matt met me at this rest stop and had lunch with me. Here I am eating my lunch!
Here I am coming into the finish line. Honestly it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I felt better after this one than I did at the last one where I only did 60 miles.

P.S. Even though it was really nice to have a little weekend away without Emmy, we missed her and were so excited to see her when we got back. And she was so excited to see us too! It was pretty cute. But I think she had a good time at her grandparents' house.
