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.

Last night I was up way too late with Holly.  We painted our toenails and watched Pirates of the Carribean 2.  Fun fun.  Plus I ate a whole bag of popcorn with minimal help from Holly.  So I wasn't feeling all that peppy this morning, but I cranked out a 5K in 33:03.  Part of it was with my son on his bike, and he had an asthma attack, so that slowed us way down for a while.

My little 2 year-old got his cast off yesterday!!!  Very weird.  His skin under the cast was all flaky and digusting, like he had leprosy or something.  Not to mention that his little arm looked quite crooked to me.  I thought something was seriously wrong, but the doctor was totally non-chalant about it all, in fact, he seemed quite amused by my mild freaking out.  Doctors!

Good job getting in the 3 milers lately. Sounds like you & Holly had too much fun last night (jealous) Best wishes for your little one's arm! I hope it continues to heal correctly, I'll keep him in my prayers. Enjoy your long weekend!

Painting toenails, cannot relate this to the tough as nails runner from the 5K last week. What happend to tough as nails, I guess, tough as toe nails. I have two girls, I could never relate to the girly things, dolls, etc.

Have a fun week.
