Support or Peer Pressure?

At the race expo on Friday night there was a booth to sign up for the Utah Valley Marathon.  We had been discussing the race a little on the ride down so we stopped at the booth to watch the video and check out the course.  I might have put a little pressure on the girls to sign up - at least for the half marathon so I wouldn't be alone.  A few of them were thinking about it seriously and since it was cheaper to sign up there they did it.  Somehow 3 of the girls ended up signing up for the full marathon. I even said something to the effect of "I don't know what just happened but I LOVE IT!!"

I couldn't be happier!  I love running with the girls.  After all, misery loves company!  Now 5 of the 12 people from our Ragnar team will be running a marathon the week before Wasatch Back next June.

P.S. I can't even walk today because my quads hurt so bad.  Note to self: ice bath and roller no matter what after a steep downhill half marathon!! But the good news is that if I can keep up my training up and the pace I ran for 13 more miles I will get my qualification time and I still have 7 months to go before the race.
