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....

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

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.

Ran Iron Rim (or Blackhawk Estates) with Rex, Alana, Glen and some other gal that is FAST. Rex ran ahead, Alana ran with fast girl and Glen stayed back and ran my slow pace climbing up the hills for four miles. Wow, that was a push for me, but I ended up averaging a 9:19 pace overall. Happy to push myself and will bring my water belt next time for sure!

Ran in new shoes today thinking the pain I felt on the top of my foot yesterday (for the last half mile) was due to needing new shoes. It is my right foot and I was able to run about 1.35 on it this morning until the sharp pain on the top of my foot came back. It felt as though I shouldn't step down to hard or I would break something. Sounds like possible small stress fracture??? I walked back, and felt it the entire way home. After sitting for a cup of coffee on the deck, I was able to walk without feeling it at all. I will take some rest time, hoping to heal whatever is going on. I am trying hard to listen to my body in efforts of being a life long runner :)
