Running Accomplishments:

I ran the Top of Utah Marathon in 4:43 after having my third child the year before. 5 K in 24:19, 10 K in 53 minutes pregnant. Survived personal training from my lovable but slightly overbearing husband Sasha for more than 8 years!!

Short-Term Running Goals:

Break 23:45 in the 5k.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Stay thin and full of energy.

Not be an embarassment to my family full of world class athletes.


Madly in love with Sasha. We have been married since 1996 and have been blessed with seven of the most adorable and talented children : Benjamin, Jennifer, Julia, and Joseph, Jacob, William and Stephen.

All of our children have run in at least one race, including Jacob and William who did it inside the womb. I enjoy various non-running activities such as: baking, sewing, playing organ, piano and flute, painting, and playing with our  vivacious children.

My REAL time was more like 51:18 but I had a little problem at the end of my run.

If you don't like potty humor don't read this but this is what happened.  I was about 3 mins away from the house in running time when ,.whoa..I had to go. This kind of thing almost never happens to almost 15 years of running I have very few memories.  I actually said a small prayer that I would make it home because there was no privacy for me anywhere and it was going to be a seriously huge mess to clean up..sorry...but it is true.  So I decided to walk and that made it a little bit easier but it took every bit of my mental will power to force myself to wait until I got home.  On the hill going up I saw three old ladies in my neighborhood coming down. I caught part of their conversation and I kid you not this is what one cute little old lady said, ..."and it stops diarrhea immediately..." then they went on to talk about other things.  Was that an answer to my prayer to help me "stop" it from coming and make it home..I don't know but I did think it was a pretty funny coincidence. 

I did make it home and felt sorry for my hubby who deals with issues like that on almost a daily basis...

Food intake:

Breafast: same..oats, pb, carob powder, agave milk

Lunch: steamed potatoes, brocolli, with pesto, ketchup, feta cheese and veganaise

Dinner: 4 pieces french toast on whole wheat with pure maple syrup

Snack: 2 pieces fresh strawberry pie with a generous dollop of homemade whipping cream.

I was tempted to eat another piece but I didn't.  :) Fresh strawberry pie is a great way to celebrate the beginning of spring. My kids and I just LOVE making it together.  :) :)
