I ran a marathon. In the course of just one year, I went from pretty much being on the couch to running 26.2! In the spring of 09 I did the Boston Run to Remember half marathon, and for my fall marathon I completed the inaugural Santa Barbara International Marathon. I may be slow, 5 hours and 5 minutes was my marathon time, but I get there!

What goals should I set for 2010? I am thinking another marathon is in the mix, but probably not until fall. Can I break 4:30 by then?? ...

What goals should I set for 2010? I am thinking another marathon is in the mix, but probably not until fall. Can I break 4:30 by then?? For now, I will focus on losing 10 lbs, which I put off during my training since I wasn't sure how my body would react, and work on my running form to be more efficient and less injury prone. Once I get past the 10 lb weight loss maybe I will choose to go for another 5, depending on how I feel.

Shout out to all my online running friends since all my local friends think I am nuts for all the running I do! Shawn, Jason, Megan and Gordon all deserve special thanks! Check them out on podcasts here:

And special thanks to my husband Kenton, who ran by my side through the runs when running felt like a chore! Without his support I would not have earned the finisher's medal.
