Dino 1/2 Fun

Yesterday our amazing pacers paced the Dino 1/2 Marathon in Vernal, Utah and did a terrific job!  It was a beautiful morning, perfect weather, and we had a great time running a beautiful race course.  All of the pacers did great talking to the runners before the race and everyone stuck to their times and came so close to their pacing goals.  The winner that got closest to their time was our good friend and new pacer Niccole Webster, she got 2 hours on the dot and this was her 2nd time pacing!  She will be receiving her favorite candy bar this week :)  Steph and I did race recaps on our personal blogs if you'd like to check them out Steph's blog is runlilmamarun.blogspot.com and mine is feedingmyrunningaddiction.blogspot.com

 Tawnya and her friend Joanna, she won a free entry to the race through our blog!
 Steph paced Parker and Keli at this race last year and they were back to PR this year!
 Our crew before the race, lookin good!  Andy and Becky got on a later bus that was late to the start so we almost missed them, luckily the race director waited for their bus before we started!

Steph doing her pacing duties making sure we were right where we should be to finish in 1:40!
 Josh did awesome pacing 1:45
 Andy our 1:50 pacer and paceband guy, we're so grateful for him!
Becky our 1:55 pacer coming in looking great as usual!
 Our 2 hour pacer Niccole right on the 2 hour mark!
 Our 2:10 pacers Aimie and Trent, they skipped into the finish!
(I missed Tawnya the 2:20 pacer finish)
 Our 2:30 pacers Karrie and Garrett

All of our pacers did a great job and we're so grateful to everyone that traveled to Vernal for the race and did their best at pacing!

PRO Compression Giveaway

As many of you know we are pretty much obsessed with PRO Compression and they just so happen to be one of our awesome team sponsors!! We love their compression socks and wear them all of the time!  They are perfect for running in and for recovering from your runs or whatever else you do that involves socks!  They make marathon socks, mid socks, low socks, calf sleeves and arm sleeves.  They also have a variety of fun colors and designs.  And I shouldn't forget to mentions they sell shirts and visors too.  Jorge did some mountain biking in Moab in his PRO shirt.    

At the gym Steph and I (Holly) are known as the "Tall Sock Twins" because we wear our PRO Compression socks when we're lifting and running.
 This is a tall sock/low sock twins day!

 There is even a green that matches our pacing singlets, for now.  We are excited to get new ones printed up soon though :) These pics were taken after our first race as a team at the Dino 1/2 last year!! Aren't we awesome!?

Steph, Josh, Joanna and I after running the AF Half last year and rocking our favorite socks.  We'll pretend Joanna is wearing the right socks...we've converted her since this was taken, no worries!
