2008 The Other Half Marathon (Moab, UT)

Date: October 19, 2008

Time: 00:00:00

This is one of two races I have signed up for but never got to complete. (The other one was in April 2008–The Salt Lake City Half–due to a knee injury).

After training for the “The Other Half” half marathon all summer long, I couldn’t run the race due to what the ER doctor in Moab said was “not bronchitis, not pneumonia, not the flu, but some sort of nasty upper respiratory virus”. (A later check up by my personal doctor confirmed pneumonia).

We still managed to make the best of a family weekend. The kids enjoyed the hotel pool, we spent Saturday afternoon at Arches National Park, and I kept the race jacket even though I didn’t run the race.  Oh well. Some things just can’t be controlled.
