Champions!

The day has come and gone and the Bear Lake races were a giant success! The scenery was beautiful, the weather was perfect, and the relaxing night before the race was fantastic! Jake, Trent, and I headed up to the lake Friday afternoon. Trent ran the full marathon, Jake the 1/2 marathon, and I ran the 10K (which ended up being 7.1 miles instead of 6.2!) Trent is the ultimate CHAMPION! He won the entire marathon. Good work Trent! Jake is a champion because he got second place in his age division. And, well, I am a champion because I actually finished my race, even with an extra mile added in there! ;)
I was so excited to pick up my first ever race packet! So, I had to document the occasion with a picture.
Here is Jake racing to the finish line.
Trent a few steps from Victory!
All of us at after the races. I am surrounded by winners!
We call him "Andy Bernard"

You can see Trent's little head poking out. He came back to the hotel, went right to the bed, and stayed like this until it was his turn to shower!
Since I had a picture of everyone else in the hotel room after the race I HAD to get one of me. Not too cute.
The two champions with their trophy's. Trent is actually going to get a plaque and check in the mail for being the overall winner. Nice!

It was a real fun time and I can now understand why people like to run races. Well, actually, I still don't understand what possesses a person to run an entire marathon, but maybe I could see myself running a half some day. It was a good time and I am already looking forward to next year!

Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there, especially, Trent, the ultimate champion when it comes to running and being a husband and a father.

AWESOME! I can't believe you all did it. And a HUGE congrats to Trent for winning the whole thing. What a neat accomplishment! Wow! Way to go Jake for finishing second.
I'm with Heidi, I can't believe you were able to train with all your kids. I only have one and can't get off my duff.
Are Jacob's nipples bleeding in that pic? Ouch! That hurts just looking at it.

I'm so proud of all you wonderful running people! I really look up to all of you. I'm thinking I might try and run a 5k sometime! I don't know, if I get accepted to the biggest loser, I might actually have a chance!

Wowsers! Way to go! That's really impressive and I bet it felt great after all was said and done. :)

Dayna said...

Congratulations Trent! That is awesome! You're better than me Amy, but hopefully after this pregnancy I'll be able to get into running. Good Job! By the way Amy, you are looking really good.

Annie said...

Go Jensens! How awesome is that that Trent WON the marathon?! Seriously so cool! And, Jake busting out 2nd place in his division and you running 7.1 miles when you're expecting to run 6.2?!! You people make me feel like a loser. But, way to go! Maybe BK and I will join the ranks and run it next year. (The 10K, that is! :))

p.s. Can't get over the Andy Bernard pic. Hilarious.

melissa said...
