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.

Blogging from New Mexico...the great "Land of Enchantment".  Also the land of mostly scraggly weeds, but awesome sunsets.  I love New Mexico.  I love the people, I love the rich culture.  Remind me to tell you all about the awesomeness of New Mexico someday.

We got in this evening, so it was night running, which is not unusual for me, but it IS unusual for me to run at night without James.  He stayed home to finish his master's thesis. I took our beloved distractions away for spring break with Grandma and Grandpa, who are most dear to me.

My parents live in a rural area and have a small farm, kind of like a petting zoo.  So for safety sake (there are a lot of feral dogs and stuff out here) I decided to run around their fields.  It turns out that it is exactly .25 miles around their field.  Crazy convenient, no?  They have two docile cows out there, who delighted in staring at me and intimidating me while I ran. Cows are not intrinsically scary unless you are really close to them.  They are soooo huge!  They are the brontosaurus of the farming world.  They look like they could accidentally inhale you if you were too close.  Overall, nice run, nice and cool, slight benefit of a little bit of rain to make the breathing feel good, but not enough to be annoying.

Nice job! I bet it was nice and quiet out there.
