Accident prone...

Thursday Workout:
8 miles
21 degrees- almost felt like summer after the weather we've been having.

I appreciate the feedback on the running mileage.
Also for reminding me that I AM a runner.
It's not so much that I don't think I am a real "runner"
I just still feel like a beginner- which I am.
The longer miles feel good and make me happy. :)

I THINK I will attempt to incorporate a training plan w/ speed work.
AFTER Goofy, that is.

I don't plan on doing any races shorter than the half marathon in 2012.
I'm just not a 5k runner.  Though I would love to be.

I have the Utah Valley Marathon in June...
and I would love to do it in under 3:40.
(Maybe even 3:35, but it scares me to even write that).
I did it in 3:44 this year.
I think I will have to do speed work to get there.
So I will try.

Now for pictures not related to running.

My poor little accident prone middle child.
You know... the one that did this:

and THIS:
All in one year.

They called me from school and told me she fell on the playground.
I went to get her and found this:
Poor little face.

We went out to lunch to make her feel better.
Then we went home...
where, within 5 minutes, she ran her head into a doorknob.
Really hard.

Girlfriend looks like she's been beaten up.
Her birthday is Saturday AND we are getting pictures done.

What a fun memory this will be.


  1. Oh my gosh, those pictures are so, so sad! That's funny that pictures are coming up. You will always be able to look back and laugh.

  2. Sagie! Poor little beat up Princess, and so close to her birthday too:( Give her a hug and a happy birthday from me on the day- as usual her card will be completely late. Oops.
    I have no doubt that you will meet your UVM goal, you've got the super dedication!

  3. omg poor thing...those photos just look painful!

  4. Just found your blog- I'm so impressed that you only started running a year ago, you are speedy! I love finding other moms who run! :)
