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

Long-Term Running Goals:

My daughter and I started our training for out Triathamom.  we swam in her pool, then we biked and ran.  I had to do Backstroke and side stroke because the front crawl hurts my chest and back.  I was very tired by the time we did the run and had to walk part of the time.

I ran a half a mile with Duke and then I went to our group run at the SJ soccer fields.  There were a lot of people there today.  We ran back and forth from 2200 through the park and our to redwood.  It was nice to visit with Eric and talk to the rest of the group before and after we started.

I ran a short run with Duke and then I met the group at the church by tithing hill.  There were about 10 people there today.  We ran along Lampton to the end and then turned around and headed back.

I rode my bike on my 6 mile course.  I rode down 114th to the river bottoms and then turned south and went up the hill by the church and then went south on Lampton to Sirmingo. Then I went east to 13th west and south to 126th and then west to redwood and then north back to 114th.  I rode as fast as I could and got a good workout.

I ran 1 mile with Duke and then went to the RUNGR8 run and ran 3.  Then I took my daughter Jenny to Olive Garden for her Birthday.  It was good.
