After working for one of my sponsors at their booth during the Abilities Expo in downtown Los Angeles, I drug myself out of bed for an extremely early Sunday morning. My girlfriend and I had already set out most of our things the night before in preparation for the dreaded early alarm at 4:45am. I threw on my race gear and we checked out from or very posh room at the Luxe Hotel, packed up the truck and headed to Dodger’s Stadium.
Bright and early Thursday morning my girlfriend and I packed up our gear in the trusty Tundra and headed off on a grand adventure. With all of our camping gear, ample amounts of cold weather clothing (just in case), and our bikes, we headed off to Utah. More specifically, to Zion National Park to camp for a couple nights, play in the park, and race in the Zion Half Marathon put on by Vacation Races (www.VacationRaces.com).
