Goal Type:

Marathon Finish

Running Accomplishments:


1 mile:  6:31

5K:  23:37

Half Marathon: 2:04

My first post-high school 5K, in which I thought I was going to die

The first time I won my age division.  Yippee!

My first half marathon, in which I attack Sasha

The time I beat my high school PR for the 5K (as a 31 year-old mommy of 3!)

My first 5K barefooted


Short-Term Running Goals:

I'm just getting back into running after a long break to have my last child.  I would like to race some 10Ks, a half, and a marathon in the next 2 years.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Be the oldest woman to complete a marathon.  Yea!  But hopefully I will also complete some BEFORE I geezer up, like, before I'm 40 for sure.  I think it would be fun to dress up really strange for marathons, like impersonating celebrities and stuff.  Except I don't really like celebrities, as a rule, so maybe I'll have to stick to the age old question of ninja, or pirate.  I say ninja. *Hyah!*


I am happily married to James W (Cool Runnings). We have 3 boys and 1 opinionated little girl.  I love reading and I'm also a news junkie.  I am a stinker.

You know what healthy food I've disovered that I like?  Kidney beans.  They've got a lot of protein and fiber, so that's a plus.  Almost makes up for the fact that I hate 2 really heatlhy foods: celery and canned tuna fish.  What exactly is the point of celery?  It is 90% strings that get caught in your teeth.  And the flavor is shudder-worthy.  And the tradegy of canning sad!  A nice seared tuna fillet is one of the finest things this world has to offer.  But stick that poor thing in a can and it putrifies, it disgusts!  It gets put into nasty casseroles and forced down the throat of children everywhere.  I'm sorry, I'm being negative.  It is okay if you like canned tuna.  Just don't, you know, BREATHE on me right after you eat it.  Or if you are Grant, for the love of decency, DON'T blow your tuna burp right in my face as I am inhaling.   Little brothers...

i miss you are so..I don't know..great. If I told you that Sasha himself never eats celery and picks it out if I put some in his food. He thinks he's allergic to it..maybe you are too..:) that would be a great reason to never eat it again! How are your kiddos?
