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 was supposed to meet Gary and Ernie at the Park n Ride by Millcreek Canyon, but they got stuck in road construction traffic and told me to go ahead. Odee and I drove to Rattlesnake Gulch and ran the Pipeline to Churchfork and back.  Beautiful morning. I saw the guys on my way back.

Lisa and I ran from the mouth of LCC to the Porter Rockwell trail, Harold drove the car to the Draper Park and road south on his bike, nice way to start the day. Now it is off to the Farmer's market and Costco.

Beautiful hike from Mormon Flats towards Big Mountain, a great hike for dogs, Odee was in heaven with all the river crossings and walking thru the streams.  Thanks Ardie for the good idea and the diet coke at the Jeremy Ranch Gas station, it isn't hard to make us happy.

I did my Old Mill route, past the Cottonbottom, the pond and up to  the mouth of BCC.  Feeling a little sluggish, but I think it was due to a funny stomach yesterday and very little food.

I have felt a little "funny" these last few days, so I took it easy and did a 3 mile hike up Millcreek with Odee.  It is so beautiful in the early morning. Ardie gave me money to pay half of an annual pass and the booth hadn't opened up yet, it is burning a hole in my fuel belt.

Ran up to the mouth of BCC and back. 

I have decided to run the Goblin Valley 50K this year instead of the Pony Express 50 miler, I am  not up for 50 miles right now and it has been making me crazy thinking about it.  Goblin Valley is tons of fun and of course some of you will be there, so it will be a party!!!!  Harold can mountain bike part of it, so he is happy too.  Now I am getting super excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Decided at the last minute to try the Crest even though we heard it wasn't quite ready.  Gary and Ernie joined us to scout out the trail, it was gorgous, it was about 95% clear of snow.  I knew the Millcreek road was closed, but I still made plans to have Harold meet us at the parking lot at Big Water, duh......  so we had to run down to the road closure, so there you have it 16 plus miles. Not as much traffic as usual, it is probably because of the road closure.  Ernie is a born trail runner, he lead the entire way, he looks like a dear prancing, effortless.  Great morning, now off to Snowbird.
