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.

Hi guys!  No, I am not running.  I am doing yoga these days.  Not only do I REALLY not want to run while pregnant, but I have been expressly forbidden to run by my OBGYN because of specific risk factors (however,  I will admit that I am happy to ignore my OB's advice when they tell me something I do NOT want to agree with, such as only eating protein for breakfast, but whatever.)

But I miss you.  What a great group of people are on this blog, and it's so nice and easy to leave comments!  None of this trying to figure out the what-the-heck letters are that are all squished up, like you have to do on 

But just a quick note to let you know what I am up to:  No good, of course, but also I am starting to "show" and look ridiculous in my yoga class.  What are you gonna do?  Pregnant warrior pose, that's a good one.  Pregnant star, that's my favorite. My fondest hope for this pregnancy is that I not become too big of a whale.  Don't laugh.  This is what happened to me last time:

There's only one baby in there.  Really.

So anything more normal lookin' than that in 4 more months will be considerred progress.  Right now I am at the "beluga" stage.  Next comes the narwhal, the elephant seal, and the orca stage.  I'm good with that.  I just want to steer clear of the "record setting grey whale" stage, if at all possible.  We'll see, I guess.

If any of you are curious as to what the heck I am up to these days, please see the family blog that I just barely started at  I'd love to hear from my virtual running buddies!

I think I better start tracking my exercise.  I find myself missing days all the time for no good reason, and then wondering why I gained 2 pounds in 1 week.

Today I did a harder yoga class than usual and I pushed myself a little too hard.  I almost threw up/fainted.  I gotta remember to just take it easy and finish the class sometimes.  Sooooo many one-armed side planks.  My obliques are gonna have something to say about it tomorrow.

Interestingly and unrelated, a week ago I had a Dr. appt. and my blood pressure was 105/45.  That is definitely a low low number on bottom for me.  Wonder if this has something to do with why I feel really faint sometimes.  Before pregancy the bottom number was 60.  Anybody have a clue as to what is going on here?
