I am married with 3 lovely children 22, 14, and 8 and a dog named Koda.  Love to run and be outside.  I believe that if you think you can do it and you work hard enough any thing is possible.   Life flashes by in the blink of an eye, enjoy it while it last and remember there is a lot more to life than running.

Took the dog up on the same trail that I did last week.  Weather was perfect, I love this kind of weather.  I wish it would last for months.  Felt pretty good and the back felt ok, a little bit of soreness but not as bad as it was.

Got up and met with Marie and Rebecca.  We did a nice little loop from Maries house.  Then I came home and did 2.5 with the dog.  Went to Dr. Brady yesterday and had the sacrum area worked again.  It was sore but feeling better.  Still not to the point where I can do anything big.

My whole back was killing me by the end of the day yesterday.  I was gong to met withe Michelle and the gang but canceled because my back was really worring me.  I iced it and scraped it the best that I could and had my husband work on it some.  I also took some IB because I just feels so inflamed everywhere (my whole back just felt on fire) ecp. down in the sacral area.  I woke up with it feeling better, definatly not 100% but the pain is less.  I wanted to get in at least 8 a day this week but that is not going to happen and what I have learned about the back is you DON'T push it or is just does not get better.  So I took the dog out for 2 miles and it didn't seem to make it worse.  I also have been doing alot of yoga and stretching.  I just want to take advatage of this beautiful fall weather and spend hours up on the trails, but oh well.

PM did the bike for 25 mins.  Abs/back

Got up this morning with no pain in my back, that doesn't happen very often even when I am not having problems with it.  I wasn't sure if I wanted to run because I didn't want the pain to come back.  But I met Marie, Rebecca and a new girl, Melody this morning.  Marie only wanted a short run because her foot has been bothering her so she just went 3 and then me and Rebecca added on some more.  The back felt pretty good, the best it has felt in a while, it is alitte sore after but not bad.  I had my husband work on it again plus I scraped it yesterday, and more IB.

Got a massage last night, she did a lot of scraping.  I didn't feel that great when I got up this morining.  But I took the dog up on the trails.  Was nice up there.  Back is sore still but I think alot of it is form the scraping.  I am really hoping it will get better soon.  I want to start running some decent mileage, even if it is just in the 40-50's.  But won't make any goals until the back is better.

Met with Marie, Rebecca, and Melody this morning and went to the Mouth of Provo canyon.  We saw Becca and her friend and talked them into coming up the canyon with us.  Then another girl that Marie knew named Julie ran on us so she joined as well.  We tured around after a couple of miles and Julie came with us, she does most of her training on her own and wants people to run with so I think she will start coming with us.  Back felt pretty good and I wanted to go more but didn't want to over do it so I didn't.  I even felt decent enough at the end to run a couple of 7:30's.

I am very happy I was able to get in 6 days this week.  Even if the mileage isn't that much.
