About to sign for the tetons
 

Your girl is going to sign up for another half marathon. Maybe two. One of them is a definite the other one is a giant question mark. As some of you may know My Dad went ahead and signed up for the Tetons half and some of you thought he was crazy because of the fact that he just got over covid. Well, let me tell you he's doing just fine and it's not until next Summer so he has plenty of time to get back to where he wants to be for this race. Not only that but it's not supposed to be strenuous (unlike the Yellowstone one which was strenuous and pretty difficult) and is supposed to be relatively flat. 

In turn, I am also going to sign up for the Tetons here in the next few weeks. Considering that I told myself last time I wouldn't do it again I think maybe the distance has gotten to me a little. Doing 13 miles and training for it is a feat in itself and when I finished the Yellowstone half I actually felt good about it. My feet were destroyed from the terrain so I will definitely be investing in trail shoes for this next one just in case so I don't have to face months of recovery for my feet and only my feet.  

In terms of recovery from Covid and getting ready for this race, I think it just depends on how you handle the recovery. When I got covid I wasn't fully adjusted to the hills in the area so it took more time than normal for me to run and feel good about it again but within about three weeks not only had I gotten past the difficulty of the hills but also recovered from Covid completely and was seeing improvement again in my time. In turn, I think that this race is going to be amazing and I think that my Dad and I will do super well in this race despite the fact that we both caught the virus and had some trouble with recovery. 

Plus I mean it's the Tetons. How can you complain about a view like that for the entire race? I'm certainly excited to take part, push myself and just have a fun time out in the west.
