AF Canyon Half x3

 Fathers Day Weekend, Scott and I ran the
AF Canyon Half Marathon for the 3rd year in a row.  
Anyone who has done this race knows that it is the best race around.....
so well organized and super fast course.

When we went to packet pick up they had a poster center where the boys were able to make signs, which they had a blast doing.  Autumn and my dad also ran the race and Dakota was sure to put their names on his sign too.

 Race morning kicked off with a 4:30 AM bus ride up the canyon!  Always the worst part,
but it was nice having an early race start.... 
before the heat kicked in. 

For the past 2 years I have been trying to break 1 hour and 50 minutes.  I was finally able to accomplish this and came in with a time of 1 hour and 43 minutes.  I was thrilled!!!!
There was no way I could have done it without Scott, he really is my best running partner.  No matter what, he always stays with me and it seems like it is always easier with someone next to you, even if we don't say a word to each other the entire time!
It is annoying though that he doesn't even train and mile and can run just as fast :-)
