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

Long-Term Running Goals:

I ran a half a mile with Duke before I went to run group.  For our group we met at Rivrton High.  We did our 2 mile loop through the neighborhood and then I ran 2 miles on the track.  Then we did another short run in the neighborhood.  This is the farthest I've run in about 6 months.

I rode my bike on my 6 mile route.  I ride from my house east to the River Bottom and then then turn south, ride up the hill and then ride through Lampton to Sir Mingo and then out to 13th west and south to 126th then west to Redwood and north to 114th.  It takes me about 23 minutes because I ride as fast as I can.  I get a good workout.

I ran half a mile with Duke and then met the run group and ran 5 with them.  I was very slow but I made it.

I rode my bike on my 6 mile course.  Then I went with 3 of my daughters and grandkids to Liberty Park.  It was a lot of fun watching all the grandkids play in the little river and the splash pad.

I slept at Leslie's to take care of the triplets in the night.  In the morning after we fed them Christine came over and we put them in the strollers and went running with them.  Christine pushed the double stroller, Leslie pushed the singele stroller and I just ran.  I was able to stay up with them since they were pushing strollers.  After about 1.5 miles we had to walk the rest of the way because Leslie's knee started to hurt a little bit.  It has been hurting since the Riverton 10K so she has been taking it easy.
