Top of Utah Half Marathon


Well, this is the only picture Joe was able to get
from the race. Let me explain why. My family
was all gathered at the finish line waiting for
me to come across. Well, as I was about there
I noticed the only person I saw was Joe. Then
I saw Bekah and she looked a little distressed
but I didn't think much of it. I couldnt figure
out where everyone else was. About 15 min
before I came in there was a man who
had a heart attack 150 yards away from the
finish line. He collapsed right in front of my kids
my family, my friends. It was pretty awful
from what I heard. I had a friend there who
happened to be an emt and there was an er
nurse right there to. The started to do CPR
on him and couldn't get a pulse for about 10
minutes. Help finally arrived and they ended
up having to life flight him over to Odgen.
He is alright. Hence this picture no one was
at the finish line to snap one so they had to settle
for one was after. But, the good news is I
finished my race in 2 hours and 15 minutes.
I shaved 15 min. off my last year time. I was
pretty proud of myself!!!
