Ogden Marathon

A quick Race report about the Ogden Marathon. I had hopes of a PR at Ogden and went out hard and ready to do just that. I was 1:51 at the half and felt real good till about 22 and then, I just didn't have the legs. I know my weakness was lack of speedwork and know what I need to do. That is the challenge I have as I train for the Wasatch 100 I have to balance the long and slow with the short and faster. So I have a plan in mind and we will see if I reap the benefits. Ogden is a great race and course. The weather was perfect and I am happy with a 4:02, I was 4:05 last year so improvement is improvement. I will post some photos as I get them.


  1. Hey Troy,

    It looks like you're training hard for Wasatch Back! The race is very challenging, but it is so much fun.

    I just wanted to mention that Operation Kids is the official charity of Ragnar. 100% of all donations will go to Best Buddies in Utah.

    Each team who raises $360 will receive a Best Buddies "I See You" bracelet with their race packet on race day, and will achieve the Ragnar Raiser distinction. That will allow 12 Best Buddies pairs to participate in the 5k walk/run next spring.

    Each team who raises $4,500 will receive the Best Buddies bracelet, enable 12 Best Buddies pairs to participate in the walk/run and will provide the seed funding to open a school chapter, as well as achieving Ragnar Life Changer status.

    The team who raises the most money will receive a voucher for a team entry into any Ragnar Relay in the next 12 months (including Wasatch Back 2010). You can donate at

    We hope your team has a blast out there and feel free to stop by Operation Kids booths at the race.

    We’ll see you and your team out there!

    -Operation Kids

  2. My work bud and manager is running Ragnar with his family team in Utah. I've been semi-coaching him. :)
