Salt Lake City Bike Tour and Marathon

Salt Lake City Bike Tour and Marathon

This year was the tenth annual Salt Lake Bike Tour, which corresponds with the annual Salt Lake Marathon. Colton, his dad, and I signed up to be Bike Marshals in the bike tour. Basically we wear vests and if someone needs help with a flat or gets hurt, we help them. At four in the morning, we woke up and drove to the start. The bike tour covers the same course as the marathon, and the course, when we’d done it before, was mostly downhill. This year however, there were little spurts of uphills. They wouldn’t have been too bad, but I decided to sign up for this marathon and bike it completely cold; the last time I’d been on a bike was last September. Brilliant idea, yes? I seem to have many lofty fitness goals that I don’t train for…
