I Did It!!!


So I finally started a blog and I ran my first marathon yesterday! I have wanted to run one for years and the time was finally right. Mike is done with residency which gave me more time to train and I am not pregnant. So in January I decided to run the Salt Lake marathon. It was a good and challenging experience! I am glad I did it and I will probably have a few less toenails in a couple of days! Oh well, a small price to pay for being able to check that off my list of things that I want to do in my life. Will I run another you ask? Maybe, I qualified for the Boston marathon with my time so we will see what life has in store. I also made the news which was pretty funny, they had a shot of me with my arms in the air, crossing the finish line. My kids got a kick out of their Mom being on tv. Thank you to all my family and friends for their support and encouragement. Everyone believed that I could do it which made it easier to do! I am also excited to join the blogging world! I have been a little scared that it would be difficult but thanks to my sister-in-law Mandie I am now confident that I can do it! Hopefully this will be a way for me to journal the happenings in our lives and keep in better touch with all of you.

That is so cool that you ran a marathon. Amy and Sarah and I did a half marathon 2 years ago, but I don't think I could ever do a full one. You are my idol.
