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 my dog up on the trails, it was freezing.  Only saw a few deer hunters today and they were just sitting in their trucks, but again no deer.  Poor deer hunters:(  I felt pretty crappy today, tired legs, sciatic hurt as well as down that hammy and my right foot has been sore.  I probably could go on but I won't.

Arg. 2nd time writing this so I am not going to write as much.  Basically did 3x1 miles on the road with the first having the most downhill, the 2nd being the toughest and the 3rd half flat and half downhill.  Had a good run and felt better than yesterday.

Met a friend I haven't ran with for a long time,  it was so good to run and chat with her.  We did a loop from her house that has quite a bit of uphill in it.  Felt good.

Met at Rebecca's to run with the girls, we started pretty quickly and the pace never slowed much.  Didn't feel all that well.

Just to let you all know that the race started 1 hour late, I was running in a costume that was very confining, and I felt pretty aweful the whole race.  But I did have parts that I had fun and it was fun up at the start hanging out in the lodge and chatting with people.  It was a cold morning so I didn't venture out for a warmup, just started the race.  I was feeling like my fuel and fluids where gone and the water stops where no good for getting water, the cups where bad and the cold made it hard to hold on to the cups.  The first 4.5 where a steep down and then you have a little bit of up hill before you get on the path for a nice gentle down hill.

6-7:24 I felt the worst through 5.5-7.  I wanted to stop and be done, really I did I saw my mom and almost turned back and got a ride.  I feel like I am running a 10 min mile and am a little light headed.

10-7:17 See JeffL and was glad to have him to carry me in.

I am not disappointed because I felt pretty bad and thought I was going to end up running a 1:40 so a 1:30 was a lot better. 

*update-so it looks like they didn't get Mary ann in the results so that bumped me down a spot ending up with 5 place overall and 2nd in my age group.
