Goal Type:

Half Marathon Finish

Running Accomplishments:

Maybe someday I'll have something noteworthy to post in this section. I have only completed three 5ks and a 5 miler; all at an average pace somewhere in the 9:00-9:30min/mile range

Painter's Half 2010 - 2:03:54 

Short-Term Running Goals:

Painter's Half Marathon - would like to keep an average pace of 9:00min/mile. 

Painter's Half - Went over my goal and finished in 2:03:54 :( It was my first half though.  I had a great time and learned what I need to work on.  

Salt Lake Half Marathon - would like to finish in under 2 hours. 

Long-Term Running Goals:

Would like to complete a full marathon in the fall of 2010 and finally conquer the Herriman Hill...to be honest, there are several hills in Herriman I'd love to conquer, but that one for sure!


I am a stay-at-home mother, married and have two young boys.

Total Distance

4 TM miles early this morning.  1 mile warmup at 6.0.  Miles 2 and 3 at 7.0 - this was easier than I thought it would be.  The first .5 miles was kind of rough and I was tempted to stop several times but once I got used to the pace, I really enjoyed myself! Hooray for no IT pain!

HOORAY FOR NO IT PAIN!!! Now, this post was a month ago, how are things going? I need to do better at checking in with everyone. Having a job has really affected my blogging!!!

How IS life Emily? I've been up in the cove running a few times and thought about you. Hope things are well.

Hey! Things are going great! I'm such a horrible blogger. I didn't blog for a while b/c my speed and distances were quite embarrasing. I've just fallen out of the habit and need to get back into it! I'm only running about 18-25 miles per week but I'm happy to say that I have had no IT pain since late last Spring. I'm hoping to run the Riverton Half this year and I'm signed up for Ragnar - Wasatch Back. How are things with you?! How's that sweet little baby of yours doing? Thanks so much for posting! I'll have to do better with blogging now that I know someone might actually read it :) Take care!

Hey Emily! Glad to hear you're doing great! Hurray for painfree running and some fun races to look forward to!

Life is good for me! Baby doesn't like to sleep much at night without being nursed back to sleep, but I'm getting used to it :)

The Riverton 1/2 will be a great race and Ragnar is always fun. I will have to bail on Ragnar again this year too, I will just be finishing up nursing baby and won't be able to leave that long. 2012 is ON for Ragnar though :)

I'm glad you got over the IT pain, it can be a bugger! Did you ever finish p90x? My hubby is on his last week this week. He is SO sick of it, but keeps doing the workouts.

Are you still running early morning? If you are we should get together some time and run. I need excuses to get up and out in the AM!

From Emily on Sun, Jan 23, 2011 at 01:10:12 from

Sorry I'm so slow to respond! Life has been crazy...sick kids, the beginning of tax season = too much work, sinus infection...NOT FUN!

I did finish P90X. I wanted to do another round of it, but after doing it twice, I kind of want something different. I don't know if I have time for much more than running though. I am still running early, but usually on the TM. My husband is doing a rotation right now that requires him to leave every morning at 6:30, even Saturday :( I don't know how early you could leave b/c of your baby, but if I ever get a morning with my husband here to watch the kids, I'll let you know so we can get together.

I hope you get some sleep soon. My kids were both that way, couldn't go back to sleep without being nursed. SO exhausting! Is he 7 months old now?

It was SO fun to see you this morning! Glad you are getting out and enjoying your runs - seemed like you had a HUGE following today :)
