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.

So I am pregnant again with our ninth child.  My brain can wrap around the number 9 for a lot of things...9 hours of sleep sounds good.  9 days of family vacation. 9 pancaes covered with butter and syrup.  9 children does not produce the same feeling..more'm really excited to meet this baby but I better not think about the fact that this is number's just a lot of kids.  Although I met a guy last week with 13 that said we were still single with only 9! 

I want to start blogging my diet to help myself watch my calorie intake and hopefully not overeat.  When I'm pregnant I need to eat a lot and sometimes go overboard.


Sunday breakfast: bowl oats, milk,agave, carob powder

lunch: 5 small pieces chicken on a bed of lettuce. 3 pieces apple

snack: 3 whole wheat waffles with pure maple syupr and a little butter

dinner: I was hungry I truly wasn't overeateing because I was still hungry after I finished....growth spurt..I"m watching for when I am not still hungry but keep eating anyway just because I like the taste.  10 pieces homemade pizza ..that's a new record. :)

bedtime snack: an orange and 1 slice apple with peanut butter

Congrats. I came from a family of 9 children. Can't imagine life without all 9 of us. God Bless you and Sasha.

I've met a lot of people from 9. It is really great for the kids...I just feel a little worn out but mostly I'm good. Thanks for the encouragement!
