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

Long-Term Running Goals:

Met the group at Centennial Park.  We ran through the subdivision and out to 3600 W and then south past the cemetery and across the street to another subdivision.  We ran around the block in the subdivision a few times and then went back out to 3600 west and south to 134th and then east until we got back to the street by the park.  I was so slow that I couldn't tell where to turn but Peggy came back for me a couple of times.  I really appreciated that.  I was very dead at the end.  It was very hot and muggy.

Shannon and I did our usual 8 mile ride on our bikes.  We did it in under 30 minutes.  Then I ate breakfast and called Leslie and then rode to her house (3.1 miles away) and then we did a 5 mile bike ride and I rode back home.  Then I weeded and now I am going to index and then clean the house.

I did my leg weight/stomach exercises along with pushups and then Duke and I went to Leslie's to run.  We only did 3 miles but it really killed me.  I will sure be glad for cool weather.

Shannon and I rode our regular 8 mile route and we did it in under 30 minutes.  After my bike ride my Husband Kent made me breakfast for my Birthday.  Then I called Leslie and woke her up and rode my bike to her house.  Then we did our usual 5 mile route and I rode back home.  Then I did my arm weight exercises and cleaned up. Then my son Ben took me to lunch.

Shannon and I did our long bike ride today.  It was a fun ride.  Then I went to Leslie's and she and I ran 8 miles.  I had to walk off and on the last 4 miles, but I made it.
