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


 

Personal:

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

Russian champion tries Crocs, commits to racing a marathon in them

Nikolay Chavkin in the video below did 3x1000, first two in Adidas carbon-fiber models, the last one in Crocs. Surprised by the result (2:52, 2:52, 2:50) with the fastest interval done in Crocs, he committed to racing a marathon in Crocs if the video gets 42K likes and 195 comments (for 42 km 195 m, the marathon distance). Nikolay's current marathon PR is 2:14:00. The video was created by a Russian sporting goods store chain. Their moto is "more sports - brighter life", which we think is wonderful, and also deserves a Like. If you want to see a fast marathon in Crocs, go to the video and click the Like button. And make sure to share it with your friends.

Went downhill skiing with the family and then for a run with my daughter in the woods near our cabin.  Deliciously dry and cold!

Long easy run.  I haven't run longer than an hour and a half since my fifty miler, and I thought I deserved a real long run!  Still nice and dry and cold.

 We are still at the cabin and I am sleeping soooo much!  Can't believe it, but it feels great.

Downhill skiing in the morning!  Crazy wet and windy!  After we got thoroughly soaked, we headed back down the mountain to the cabin.  While the sauna was getting hot, I ran in the woods.
