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.

Slow milesFast milesTotal Distance

1.2 REALLY  slow miles with my 2, 4, and 6 year old (the 2 year old does about .2 of that).

1.8 Slow miles on the treadmill.

1.6 pounds lost this week.  5.6 total.  So now I am finally lower than pre-running weight.  (For some reason I gained 4-5 lbs. the first month after I started running.)

I'm getting to bed slightly late, but not enough to actually follow through with the heinous consequences I set up for myself.  : )

1 easy mile tomorrow and then my 5 K on Sat.  (1st one in 12 years!)

I just have to say that I am sooo proud of my star piano student.  He just passed off his level 6 requirements for the DVMTA Achievement Day and got a huge trophy.  Good job Runner's High James!

Good luck on the 5k. I'll be thinking about you!

Heber! You got my email! I'm gonna miss you all at the reunion next week. We'll survive, though. What are you up to with your running?

Brent, I'll keep sending out those ocmments as fast as I can. : )

James said something to Sasha about running the 10 miler in friend and I are planning on running it...really slow(well I'll run slow and she may pick it up at the end...she's kind of crazy that way) I thought you guys were coming up in July for a renunion...was it June?

From Lybi on Sat, May 26, 2007 at 00:02:26

Yep it's June--what is it, 2 weeks away? Wow, Cool! I'll see you there! I'll be shepherding 3 little boys at the finish line.
