Introduction I'm a 43 year old mom of two and wife of one (no polygamy here). Running and I fell in love in September 2008 when I started training for my first marathon. I'd never even run a half before, but doing things in the "correct" order is over-rated. I completed the Rock 'n Roll Phoenix Marathon (4:03) in January '09 and haven't stopped running since. That is until I was sidelined with a stress fracture injury in 9/09 while training for my second marathon. I triumphed over the damn injury and was able to BQ at the Colorado Marathon in May 2010. I'm a good (although sometimes irreverent) mother to two good kids - Sam (12) & Emma (9). My husband, Ken, is about as good as they come. He is many things I am not - laid back, disciplined, rationale, computer-smart. I refuse to let fear get in the way of me doing the things I want to do. What's next? Running stage one of the TransRockies Run with Dean Karnazes as my partner in August and skydiving for the first time in September...the sky's the limit, right?
