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.

The morning dragged me out for my first run in years.  The weather was SOOOO perfect.  Cool, with a slight breeze.  I remembered how much I used to love running, and how much I miss the awesomeness of the FRB and the wonderful maniacs on it.  I ran and walked intermittently for about 30 min.  Felt good! (Even though I started breathing super hard after like 10 steps.)

Welcome back to running! Good to hear from you again! How is James?

Hey Jeff! Thanks. James is usually pretty good, although he is sick as a dog today. He's had a recurring foot injury that interferes with running, though.

Ah, so THIS is what you did. Nice! Congratulations!

Laura has come running twice, we throw the kids' shoes on and Brianna in the jogging stroller. Very fun to go as a family.

Lybi- Brent says you're awesome, so I've got to agree. What a beautiful photo!! Congrats on taking that big first step back.

Mike, this is all your wife's fault. She had to go and inspire me, didn't she?

Brent, thanks for the welcome! It's good to be back.

Hey Pirate-lady-with-the-awesome-head-dress! Thanks! Your hat could inspire movies, nay, trilogies!!!
