I met Kory and Penny Parrish at Century HS and we drove to the start of the marathon course.  I knew I was going to be in trouble.  Here I was running with 2 people who have won the marathon here more than once.  We started out a bit faster than I wanted and Kory and Penny eventually pulled away from me around mile 10.

I ran my own pace to get my miles in and had a great morning.  It was 47 at the start and probably only 65 when we finished.  The Pocatello triathlon was going on so we saw lots of bikers on the last 2 miles to Century.

I ran 19.60 miles.
