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.

5K in the morning with Christine.  I felt a little low on energy today, but still really enjoyed it.  Total time: 31:56 (10:18 pace).  I really need to adjust my sleeping schedule now that I'm running at the crack of dawn.  Naps have been amazingly hard to come by this week & I'm exhausted!

How do you like my dog?  I like him a lot.  The only real problem with him is that he is just a little too excited to see me in the morning, which has led to some unfortunate accidents.  Ew!

For the record, he is sporting headwear of obvious origins.  All part of my scheme to...try to... think like a...champion?  Yah, that's it.

I dedicated my run to Will this morning.

PS What is the story behind the "crumpy"?
