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.

2 miles with James in the PM.  We were so giddy tonight.  We kept laughing and horsing around.  Actually, James was the one horsing around and I was just laughing.  He teases me about my perception of the many "uphill" portions (I think I can tell if it's uphill, even when most scientific instruments probably are not sensitive enough to detect them.  I'm amazing that way. *snort*).  And I pester him about trying to crush my spirit by tending to run just 2 feet in front of me.  It's like he's an old fashioned hubby who wants his wife to walk behind him and only look at the ground and stuff.  That's why I have to occasionally attack him on our run, to assert understand, I'm sure.

You know what? I think I am quite measurablely happier since I started running again.  : ))))  But then again, really good things keep happening.  James just finished his master's thesis tonight.  Yea!  Only the verbal defense left, which is nothing by comparison.  PLUS today I got like 900 square feet of free laminate flooring.  It is really light wood, ash, I think...soooo pretty.  I am very excited to use it to replace the carpet in the bedrooms.  It should make it much nicer for my asthmatic children--fewer allergens, you know.  Not to mention how much easier it is to clean up in the middle of the night in case the kids ralph on it.  (No one can ever accuse me of not being practical!)  But I digress...

My thesis statement for this day is that it was AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWESOME!!!  Hope you having a great day too, dear reader.

That is an amazing deal on the flooring. I was thinking yesterday "If I had tile or something other than carpet through out, my floors would be easier to clean" (I was thinking this while I was actually scrubbing said carpet).

I think I can tell when I'm going up hill as well, even if I'm really going downhill. Brandon likes to laugh at me about it. But when I'm pushing the double stroller I *KnoW* when I'm going uphill... no mistake. ha ha!

Way to go on your 2 miles! You are doing AwEsOmE
