I started running at age 40 (14 years ago!)  I am married to Harold, he is a super supportive husband and we enjoy running and biking the trails along the Wasatch Front together. Between us we have 7 children and 9 grandchildren.  I am really having fun trying new races in scenic parts of Utah, I am a newbie in the ultrarunning world, I am slow, but love everything about it!  I have a lot to learn,but I am enjoying the journey.

Total Distance

Took Odee over the the Old Mill pond ( I found out the real name is Spencer Pond, but I don't know Spencer, so I will continue to call it the Old Mill pond). I came home and dragged my feet, the weather looked so dreary and cold, finally got my sorry butt out the door and did 6 miles along Danish Road and up to Wasatch Blvd.  The temp. was great for running, but now I would like a little sunshine thank you very much.

Sat. we leave for Southern Utah for our big family backpacking trip.  Peek-a-boo, Spooky and Coyote Gulch.  I think I will finally get my sunshine!

Have fun on your trip! That sounds fun!!!

oh yes! The trip will have LOTS of sunshine. I keep seeing the forecast for the next week going up and up with few clouds and even hitting 80! I can't wait!!

Nice work on the miles despite the dragging...I can sympathize WAY too much with that today :)
