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.

Had a great run on the Crest, it was so beautiful today, nice and cool, the early morning temp was 46.  My son Tracey joined me for the first time and did great.  We had a group of 8, 3 bikers, 5 runners and Tracey got to Big Water first.  Very cool.  I hope I can do another fall run before it snows.  Laurie and I ran down the Canyon to get the extra miles.

up Bengal to Wasatch Blvd and down Fort Union.

I am so excited to be pacing from Lambs to Big Water at the Wasatch 100.  Only about 10 miles, so there is no pressure, it will just be a blast.  Maurine is doing Brighton to the finish, 25 miles that is brutal.  I can't wait!!!!!!!

My runner I was going to pace had to drop out due to medical problems, so I called Maurine and said we should go run on the course a bit and cheer on the runners.  We drove to Big Water up Millcreek and followed the course to the spine above Desolation Lake.  We started running at about 3:00. We didn't start seeing runners until after we turned around.  Nick was in first place, another Nick in second place and Anthony in third.  It was a blast!!!

Hiked the Narrows, loved it, but I got chilled to the bone, I was the only one out of our party of 6, not sure why my body reacted this way, I actually turned around to come back early. Next time I will have more layers and neoprene soxs.  Who would have thought you would be cold with a high in St. George of 99?  Crazy.

Taper time for St.George!  I just did muscle-up this morning!

 Kind of funny that we were in St. George last weekend and will be there next weekend and then again afew weeks later for the Mesquite Half.  My cousin gave us a key to their "second" home in St. George, it is really nice to have our own little place to get away to.  Thank you Shawnie! I think we will be spending alot of time in St. George this winter!
