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.

Evening.  Crappy run.  I wanted to do my 2 mile tempo run tonight.  I missed my last two bc of serious sleep deprivation related to kiddos.  1 mile to warm up at 11:15 pace.  Then I started my tempo. I started off really good, felt pretty good.  Ran the 1st mile in about 8:40.  Did not feel all that fast to me.  (My last tempo run was at 9:00 pace, but it was WAY hot compared to tonight.)  However, when the Garmin beeped the mile split, I unexplicably found myself walking.   Very odd.  I walked about .25 and then started up again.  Ran the next mile about 8:40 too, although I don't have an accurate time bc of stopping for darn stop lights. 

Well, I guess it wasn't that crappy.  In fact, it was a pretty good clip for me.  I just wish I hadn't stopped in the middle.  Maybe I'll have to try again later this week.

Holly's house is almost exactly 2 miles from my house.  I see a very good possibility for a 6 miler one of these days.  2 miles down, 2 with the Holl-ster, and 2 back home.
