Running Accomplishments:

Prs:

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!*

Personal:

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.

I was tired tonight before starting my run. 

I could've been OCD about running a little more to get to 2, but I decided to be OCD about not running past my house instead.  : ) 

I slowed waaaay down the last half mile or so.

Wow, what a boring entry.  Here's a couple little fun facts that are interesting but also kind of disturbing (sorry, I've been reading CNN):

1.  Yesterday my 2 year old pulled off the tail of my leopard gecko that I LOVE and I was so upset about it (she's not even allowed in that room) that I couldn't sleep last night.  : (  Poor Vixo!

2.  I have a dentist appointment today and I am seriously considering going in my pajamas just because I'm tired.  I figure at least the dentist is getting paid...

I like that you are not OCD about your running like most of us runners. Way to stay under two, more power to you.

Poor gecko. Hopefully you went to the dentist in your PJs.

I totally went in my pajamas. It was great. Actually, it really was. The world would be a kinder place if people hung out in comfy jammies more.
