Running Accomplishments:

I began running for my first time about 3 years ago. I remember calling everyone I knew the first time a ran 2 miles w/out stopping. I ran Mesa Falls half marathon @ 2:21 in fall 2009. I ran Salt Lake half marathon spring 2010 @ 1:54. Then I ran Missoula, MT full marathon summer 2010 @ 4:25. I was injured (IT Band) for Portland marathon (fall 2010) but went and picked up my packet anyway. Ran Ogden 4:26....

Short-Term Running Goals:

Over the next two years, I would like to improve my strenghth and speed.

Long-Term Running Goals:

I WILL qualify and run Boston before I turn 40. I just turned 36 this year ~ 


In May, 2013, I will have been married to my love, Rex, for 16years. And it just keeps getting better and better! Two beautiful daughters. Emma (8) and Ali (5). This is my ninth year teaching and I love that I get paid to do it! Running gives me energy, sanity and is simple joy for me.

Wow. I love this half marathon, I just was not in a good place to run it. i-t band issues on both legs, I have been batteling with my right leg and hamstring for about 4 weeks now. I was good the first five miles, then it went south from there. I had to stop and stretch every half mile after that. I tried to hobble/run for the remainder 8 miles...the last four were brutal. However, I do love running and will get to a better place. Just need time to heal and strengthen up. I think where my milage had been sooo low the last few weeks, I became too tight.

Here's to finishing, loving on Rex who ran the marathon and qualifed for Boston with a 3:11 finishing time.
