I have fun every time I run, and have recently overcome the "I can't go fast anymore" hurdle.  I'm having fun going faster and working towards becoming even faster.  

I have raised two running children, one competitive and one not.

I have learned to run in ice and snow and I don't complain. 

Short-Term Running Goals:

Work towards a faster marathon by Spring 2012.

Get my 5K down to 21:30. 

Place in my division at duathlon and triathlon.

Train for biathlon.



Long-Term Running Goals:

Joining Forrest Gump



I'm a 52 year old mom of two ex homeschooled teenagers. They both think I'm nuts.

Downhill skiing in the morning, just because we had a little fresh snow.  We get incredibly heavy, wet powder often, and this was definitely heavy and wet!  It was fun for about three hours, then I quit and put on the skate ski gear for an hour and a half.  I worked especially hard on uphill technique, so it turned into more of a workout than I intended.
