Personal:

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.

I have been slacking posting my miles on the blog, so I caught up and will try and be better. I miss not reading every one's posts.

I did 3 miles speed work on the treadmill and then 3.5 outside.  

Signed up yesterday for the Bryce Canyon Half and signed up a couple of days ago for the Red Mountain 50k. I have about 8 races on my calendar, hope to find a few more to fill up my year.

4 miles with the SLC training group.  12:50 min pace, felt good, we did hills today. I am excited Trish signed up to do Bryce Canyon with me. Ardath is doing it as well, so it will be great fun!  I have been running with a French woman, Natalie, we both have the same pace. She is hooking me up with her friend who works at a vein clinic to measure me and get me some good running tights, Natalie and the workers at the running store took a look at my legs and were surprised that I have run for 16 years on these veiny legs without proper support, they said it will make a huge difference.  I also bought new Mizuno shoes, I had worn mine down and have callouses on the outside of my feet.  I guess I need to take better care of my body and feet and get the right gear.  It was a great morning, great new friends and learning a lot.

6 miles on the treadmill, pushing hard, only a 1 min. walking break, kept up  a 12 min. pace.  The SLC running group is motivating me to work a little harder. I feel great!

Woke up to a storm, ran 4 miles on the treadmill and then when the storm cleared I did 4 outside.  Right on target for Red Mountain in April.
