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.

Yummy evening run with James...please notice the mileSSSS I distance record this training cycle (hehe).  I felt much better than last night.  My left hip was niggling just a little when I first started, but it went away relatively quickly.  Felt that delicious runner's high around .75 and then again at the end.  It's like "I'm ALLLLLIIIIIIIIIVVVVVEEEEE!" and fully awake.  Nice.

Odd thought, I have noticed something kind of strange since I started running again: I seem to need to spit a lot more than I remember doing in the past when I ran.  Weird, huh?  I was thinking that maybe it is because this training cycle I've been almost always going with James, and James and I talk the whole way. And apparently talking a lot combined with pumping those lungs somehow equals a bunch of frothy bubbles in my mouth that I don't want to swallow. Talking a lot while running mimics rabies....a little.  Real, or not real?

hmmm, I don't talk and run much, so I'm not sure. I do sing sometimes. I'm certain someone will drive by me running and wonder why that crazy person is make that horrible noise while she runs. ha ha!

So, I'm contemplating keeping my pjs on ALL day today. No, I'm serious. Brandon won't be home until 9:30 tonight, and I have no travel plans. For some reason, after our phone conversation yesterday, I feel the need to confess this and add that I *have* showered. :)
