Salt Lake City Marathon

We (Me, Chris, my husband, Mat, my brother in law and Moses from Vegas) are going to attempt the Salt Lake City Marathon Bike Tour on April 17, 2010.

They let bikers do the Marathon Route ahead of the runners. The requirement though is that you must finish the 25 mile course in 1hr45min or they will kick you off the course. There is some down hill to help out, but not a lot. I have been training for this. Cross your fingers for me. I think that would be so embarassing to get kicked off. Oh the shame! I will let you know how it goes.

See you on the streets of Salt Lake.


  1. That's an average of 14.2857 mph or 22.9906 kmh. Not a bad challenge at all for a footbiker.

    Draft off some of the tail end cyclists and stay relaxed and you'll beat the cut off point.

    Wishing you a strong tail wind.

    Thanks for your words of encouragement.
    Excellent show on the 12 hour solo. That is amazing.

  4. Thanks for your kind words.

    I have to say that Mario Reijne’s 24 hour solo is far more impressive though. I only just managed to do beat his 10 hour distance and he kept going for another 14 hours before stopping. I would have died. :-D

    The guy is a machine!
