I started running a couple of years ago and in this blog post I said, "'ll never run a marathon or a half-marathon", but I guess as they say NEVER SAY NEVER because I have decided to give it a try. I decided I wasn't going to let my 60th birthday slow me down, so I decided it would be fun to do a half-marathon. I talked to Brent, and we decided that together we would take on the Utah Valley Half Marathon in June. (Now that I've said it, I'M SCARED)
I have signed up for the Half-Marathon training clinic her that begins in early March. Now it just needs to warm up a little so I can do it.
It's fun to realize that Thanksgiving 2009 I did a 5K with Stephen, Daphne, and Kiah,
and, last Mother's Day a couple of weeks before our Elder entered the MTC, we ran a 10K.
It will be fun to run with Brent. (As well, Macy is registered to do this run with one of her friends.)
A LONG SIDENOTE:
In most places the snow falls and then melts, NOT HERE--well, it does melt sometime in April ; ) Until then they have to find a way to get rid of the snow before it piles up like this:
Today when I went to the Post Office, I found these lined up in a row waiting for the trucks to come to take the snow away.
And these trucks take the snow and dump them out of the city.
I'm so glad the Groundhog saw his shadow--I'M READY FOR SPRING.
