This picture is from the Georgetown Idaho Springs Half Marathon. It was a great race, finished in 2 hours 12 min. Much improved from the Moab 1/2 in took me like 2 hours and 40 min. I did have a concussion the week before but that still is a yucky time. Venessa(the gal on the left) had only been training for like a month and she kept up and did awesome!!!

This is from the Cabbage Head Duathlon. It was a 5K run 20K bike 5K run. Amber, Carrie, Erin, and I did it together. My first 5k I ran an 8 1/2 min mile!!! The second 5K I had a side ache and barely made it over the finish line.

As many of you know I am a runner, not very fast but I have improved over the past 10 years. I used to run a 12 minute mile...I know PATHETIC!! But I run between a 9 and 9 1/2 minute mile. I competed in several different races this summer. Mostly I enter these races just so I have a goal in sight. I need something to keep me focused and on track. My good friend Carrie has been my running buddy, and I probably would not have done all the races we did without having a friend to come along...although she always kicks my butt:) I did a 10K , 2 1/2 marathons, and a duathlon.
Now a group of 12 ladies, me included are going to be doing the Wasatch Back Relay next June. It is 188 miles through the moutains. This should be a lot of fun!! I won't start really training till spring but it will give me a goal to stay in shape ocer the holidays!! We are putting together a running blog for our team and I will post it soon.

Hey, I train about a 12 minute mile. I can go a little faster under pressure. My goal is to get under 10 someday. I would love to do that dualathlon. Are you doing it again next year? We are doing the Aspen 1/2 in a couple of weeks.
