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.

Speed work, fastest time yet. 2.57 miles in 25 min.  speed ranged from 7.0 to 7.7 with walking breaks at 4.0.  Very happy, I am not sure I can go any faster.

I loved running outside!  I headed out the door in the dark with my reflective gear and got to see the sun come up.

Had a physical yesterday, looks like I am in really good health, she just mentioned that I should wear compression  socks while I work and run. I have only worn them for marathons, but I am going to take her advice and wear them more often.

 

I went faster than last week on my speed work, which I wasn't sure was possible. I ran 2.61 miles in 25 min. I think that is about a 9+ min. mile average.  Super good for me!
