Guess Who's Running Another Half-Marathon

That's right, yours truly. I'm nuts, but don't care who knows it. I have a new neighbor, her name is Lanaya and we decided it would be a glorious adventure to run a half-marathon together. I'm all about goal setting and achieving. We're running the American Fork Half, which should be gorgeous in June when we run the darn thing.

I'd like to give a shout-out to my old running buddy (Julie Bagley--who is having a baby girl in April) and tell her that I will be thinking about her the whole time I'm training for this race! We ran the Utah Valley Half-Marathon together and I couldn't have asked for a better running partner.

Oh, don't mind my freaky long alien hands

Anywho. I'm also probably going to sign up for the Dirty Dash run with Lanaya as well to get ready for the Half-Marathon. I've always wondered what it was like to run through a big pile of mud. We shall see. I'm on a running kick. Maybe I should just get a dog instead of being crazy and running super strenuous races.

The one crawling through the mud, is my awesome sis-in-law who ran the Dirty Dash, she's hardcore people!

Back to Anatomy and Micro.

Marci this is AWESOME!! You go girl. I love when people force themselves to train for this kinda stuff- it really forces us to challenge ourselves and grow. I just started walking/running again this week and it is tough trying to get back into when you've stopped for so long. But even after two times, it already feels better and that "therapy" feeling is coming back :)

I love your little blog. You're such a cute lil house wife!

Jonno said...

Ah! Sorry, this is Nancy :) Although I'm SURE if jonno was here he'd say he loves you and supports you too!!!

Julie: I miss you more, but I get to see you soon. Yay!

Jonno, ahem, I mean, Nancy-dear: I was like...."Jon? He just said that he loves my cute little blog? I guess that sounds like Jon?" Then, I read the second comment, and I was all, "OHH, it's Nancy, it all makes sense now!" I just love you and totally agree. It's tough, but worth it to push yourself. You brighten my day!

E: My "amazing" hands thank you graciously. :)
