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.

It has been a week since my 50k, I really enjoyed taking a week off of all exercise, especially since we have had snow most every day and wind.  I did a 5 mile run thru the neighborhood, it is still snowing, so it wasn't very enjoyable, my quads are still very tight.  I think it will take me acouple of weeks to get back into the swing of things.

I got up at 6:00am this morning and drove up to the Smiths on Wasatch and Bengal and started my run to the Porter Rockwell trail.  Ardie met me in Draper and we ran and chatted for an hour.  Great morning, nice to feel the legs are strong and healthy again.

I don't have another race until August. I am going to do the Jordonelle Triathlon with Harold.  Ardath reminded me to take it easy and not do such high miles and do more cross training. Good idea.  The pool will open the end of the month and I will start doing laps to get ready for the tri.

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!

What a differance a day makes.  Today is gorgous, I should have gone to the rec  center for my cross training but went outside and did a nice run to start my day.  I am getting all the loose ends taken care of for my back packing trip today.

Happy Thursday!

I ran from my house over to the rec center and did the CHRC 5K route.  Nice morning, I think Spring is finally here.  Tomorrow morning we head out off to Torrey and then on to our backpacking trip!

Camped at the Peekaboo trail head and woke up early to hike Peekaboo and Spooky.  It was nice to beat the crowds.  Do not try and do this hike after 10:00am, it is too crowded.

I got in late last night and didn't write much about my backpacking trip.  We had a great time, Coyote Gulch is so beautiful. It was fun to enjoy it with my family.  I hope to go down there again soon.  My sister-in-law from California decided this is something she really wants to do more of, my hubby really enjoyed it too, we are going to try and see if we can get in another backpacking trip in around the Bryce or Red Canyon area before the summer is up.

I was wide awake at 5:20, so got up and did 6 miles and saw the sun come up.  No stiffness or soreness at all after the trip.

This is turning out to be a pretty wimpy week. I had bad Charlie Horse last night and was still pretty sore this morning, just took Odee for a walk around the pond.  Oh, well.....

It is my cross training day, but got up at 5:15 and decided it was going to be a running day, I am glad I am not on a rigid schedule.

Got up to run at 7:00am this morning, I think I do better starting earlier and watching the sun come up.

I was going to run with Maurine this morning, but cancelled last night because of the weather report.  I got up before 5:00am and realized it wasn't raining so got in a quick 5 miles, it was pretty cold.

Ran to LCC, off to help J and P clean their new rental, golf, and grilling burgers in the back yard.

Happy Memorial Day!
