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.

Well, shoot!  I've suffered a slight setback in the way of a frozen bottle of pop falling out of the freezer and landing on my big toe.  Soooo painful!  I'm pretty sure the neighbors must have thought I was being tortured. I thought for sure the bone was broken into 10 billion bits, but the x-rays show that my bones are stronger than adamantium, apparently.  But there is a slight risk of compantmental syndrome because of all the swelling (it is quite swollen!).  When I am on my feet for too long my toe gets all tingly and kind of numb.  I would like to avoid having my toe sliced open, so I am going to have to keep off my feet for a few days...

But I did do the upside-down bicycle for 25 min.!  Does that count as cross training?!?

Enjoy running, my friends!  I'm not jealous. : (

Oh no! Sorry about your toe. I'm glad you'll take it easy to prevent further damage.

Yes, upside down bike counts, I guess - what the heck? hard cardio always counts.

A chill just went down my body. I'm having sympathy pains. Hope you heal soon. P.S. upside-down bicycle will give you gas. But I'm sure you already know that.
