I completed my first marathon this weekend!

Hi Everyone,

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. Things have been pretty busy lately. My family and I just got back from Kelowna this weekend.

I have been running off and on for about 10 years and have ran a number of road and trail races. Well this weekend I ran my first marathon! It was a fantastic experience and I am looking forward to running a second one in May. I managed to complete the 42.2km (26.1 mile) course in 4 hours 35 minutes and 11 seconds. I was hoping for a 4:30 finish time but am very pleased with my results.

I couldn't have been as successful as I was if I wasn't surrounded by so many wonderful people. My family and friends have supported me in my marathon journey and I will be forever thankful for their love and support.

Talk to you all soon,


  1. Way to go Cat!!! Your time was AWESOME!!! I would love to run a marathon with you sometime! We are doing the Top of Utah again next September and maybe another one in the Spring.

    You are such an inspiration!!

  2. Thanks Robyn,

    I had so much fun. I would love to run with you too. It is always more fun to run with someone. It sure makes the time go faster. The scenery in the Top Of Utah marathon looked gorgeous. Might have to put that one on my to do list.
