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.

Kim and I took Odee and Ziggy to dog lake, the dogs were in heaven, Ziggy is a wonderful trail dog, she makes Odee look old and tired.  She pranced the whole way, I wish I could put a garmin on her, I bet she did 20 miles.  They played in the lake and then we went to Lone Star for fish tacos.  Yay for summmer.

Started at Puke Hill ran to Desolation Lake and down to Mill D.  We had a car parked acouple miles down the road to give us a few more miles.  The early morning temp was 55 and it stayed nice and cool thru the whole run.

I always love to find a new trail.  We did Hugh's Canyon to the waterfall. Nice short hike. I actually ran 2 miles before we hiked, to give me 5 miles.

I actually did a 12 plus mile bike ride with Harold this morning, and did the bike/run conversion, I can not believe how hard it is for me to bike, I wonder if it is my body or in my head.  I tried riding with him acouple of days ago and road my bike up 2 miles to the mouth of BCC and told him to go on and I turned around and went home exhausted.  Today we rode up to  the mouth of BCC and I was fine ( I am actually riding Harold's  Kona Mountain Bike, so that makes it a little tougher) anyway, I rode with him along Wasatch Blvd to about 45th South and turned around.  It was not that bad, it would be fun to see the differance on a women's road bike.  Tomorrow we are going to try and go a little further.  Kind of a nice change.

One mile of barefoot running in the park ( I am reading Born to Run....SO AMAZING!)  I loved it!  Then a 4 mile hike to the SLC Overlook on the Desolation trail. We saw a rattlesnake on the trail that even rattled for us.  Very cool.

CRAZY!!!  Gary and Ernie and I met at Rattlesnake Gulch, about 15 min. into our run I spotted an another rattlesnake in the middle of the trail, I was in front, screamed, swore and then jumped off the trail.  The snake slithered away and we kept going.  We ran up to Elbow Fork and back.  On the way back we took off our shoes and enjoyed the stream at the Churchfork junction. Awesome morning.
