Prs:

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!*

Personal:

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.

Nice, cool run.  Yummy.  I am starting to feel the enjoyment of running...how it wakes you up and gets you to really breathe for pretty much the only time all day.  I am really savoring the cool because I know full well what is coming in the next few months in Mesa, AZ:  90 degrees. Even at 5 am!  Oh, well....90 degrees is a great temperature for the cultivation of self mastery, no doubt.

I smelled the skunk again tonight, in a different place.  I think I've got a dang skunk stalker!  A skulker! Tomorrow will be our last encounter, Saturday we go home.

You're doing so awesome, Lybi!! I'm so impressed you're going everyday - skunk notwithstanding! :) By the way, I watched Fat, Sick, and Dying tonight like you recommended. Very inspiring! I can see why you immediately bought a juicer. hehe
