Teton Dam Marathon, Yellowstone, and Grand Tetons 2007
I ran the
Teton Dam Marathon
on June 9, 2007 with Laura and Steven Shea to celebrate Laura's birthday. I ran 03:28:46.94 and Laura ran 03:32:19.99, personal records for both of us. Then we and some other of their family saw Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks until June 12.
