Goal Type:

5 K Finish

Running Accomplishments:

I've been running for the past 25 years.  I ran my first marathon at age 50 and have run 3 since then.  I run 5K's, 10K's and half-marathons.   I ran the Ogden Marathon in 2006 and finished in 4:35.  I won Thrid Place in my age group.

Three of my daughters and I ran the Ogden Half Marathon.  They did great and I was glad to just finish.  I ran the Riverton 1/2 marathon the end of March and pulled my hamstring and then got bursitis so I wasn't able to train as much as I wanted to.

I have slowed down a lot the past 10 years so my goal now is to keep running slow and steady until I die.  I also ride bikes and am as fast as my daughters.

We have now switched from Marathons to 1/2 marathons and Triathlons.  Last year Leslie and I did the Desert Sharks Triathlon and Daybreak.  I won first in my age group in both because there are not many people in my age group.

2010  Riverton Half Marathon 3rd in age group

Daybreak Triahtlon 2010 1st in age group

South Jordan Half Marathon 2010 1st in my age group

Riverton 10K 2010 1st in my age group

Vikingman Triathlon September 10 2010  Won 1st in my age because I was the only one in my age group

March 2011 Riverton 1/2 Marathon 1st in my age group and there were actually 6 people in my age group.



Short-Term Running Goals:

My daughters and I are starting to train for Triathlons, but would still like to run 2 half-marathons and 5K's and 10K's 


Riverton 1/2 Marathon  3rd in age

Daybreak Triathlon 1st in age

Hobblecreek 1/2 Marathon

Long-Term Running Goals:

Keep running, biking, swimming and stay fit until I'm 100 years old


I'm married, have 8 kids (7 daughters and one son) and 28 grandkids. I have a great supportive husband.  The grandsons and grand daughters are now tied at 14.  I have 2 grand daughters married and one going on a mission to Australia.

I was very tired this morning.  I had grandkids over for the weekend and we didn't get to bed until 11:45 last night.  Ben and I woke up a couple minutes late (4:35 instead of 4:30) so we didn't have time to walk as far.  Then I came home and cleaned before I called Leslie.  Leslie and I ran straight down 40th west to sky drive and back.  We went nice a slow because we were both tired.

Ben, Duke and I did our usual walk down 114th to the River Bottoms and back and then I met the BBK's a Bingham.  We first ran over to Templeview and ran around it about 4-5 times and then went to Bonanza and did it 3 time and then did Prospector.  We had a new girl come today named Cher.  She was slow like me so I had someone to talk to the whole time.  She had to leave a 6:30.  It was a good run and I was very tired afterwards.

Ben, Duke and I walked down to the light at the river bottoms at 4:30 this morning.  Then I made breakfast and cleaned the kitchen.  Then I did my leg weight/stomach exercises for the first time since my hand surgery 1 and 1/2 weeks ago.  You wouldn't think leg weight exercises would hurt my hand, but I hold 10# weights in my hands when I do the first two reps and 20# weights on the next two reps.  It only hurt my hand a little bit.  I decided to wait 1 more week before doing my pushups because I know they would hurt my hand.

Ben, Duke and I did our usual walk down to the light at the River Bottoms.  Then I filled my water bottle and headed out the door to meet the BBK's at the Tithing Hill church.  I got there just in time to do the 1 mile warmup.  We jogged through the Tithing Hill condo's and down the hill and then back up again.  I ran fast down the hill and by the time a ran back up was tired.  Melanie Steere was back after having her baby.  It was good to see her.  Rachel's friend Calvin was also here for the first time.  Then I went home and ate breakfast and made breakfast for Kent and then Called and woke Leslie up.  We did our usual daybreak run.  It didn't get me as tired today as it has the past two weeks.  Tomorrow at 5am we are headed to Fish Lake to visit our friends that have a cabin there so the only exercise I will be getting is when we go for walks with them.
