While driving to Park City with Les this morning, we decided that we are going to run the Grand Slam this summer. The schedule for 2009 is as follows:
2009 UTAH GRAND SLAM OFFICIAL FOUR MARATHONS
Ogden Marathon – May 16, 2009
Utah Valley Marathon – June 13, 2009
Park City Marathon – August 22, 2009
Top of Utah – September 19, 2009 – Alternate Marathon
St. George Marathon – October 3, 2009
I did the Grand Slam 2 years ago – but really hated the Deseret News Marathon. I was actually thinking of running the Utah Valley Marathon (I think this is its second year) – and hearing that it was on the list made this a no brainer.
I will push on Ogden and St. George and use Utah Valley and Park City as long training runs. It will be fun to try a new marathon this year – Utah Valley. Plus, it will give me a chance to visit with my dad.
