Finishers "bling" at the Little Rock Marathon, March 4, 2012
I am a wife to Nigel, mother to Kirsten and Chelsea, and teacher to a couple hundred students at St Benedict High School!
I would like to use this site to motivate me to continue to work towards being - and staying - healthy!
My overall goal is to stay healthy for a very long time... :-)
Some new running goals for 2012:
#1 complete my first marathon!
March 4 - Little Rock Marathon
My time goal is to finish in about 6 hours, but in my heart I would like to go 5:30....
DONE!!! It took me 6 hrs and 30 mins, but it was fun running with a group of friends. Now I can set a goal for next time
#2 well, I haven't thought that far ahead yet.... Right now it would be to run a 2nd marathon in the fall! :-) I'll know more after my first one! :-)
I'm still on track for this too - White River Marathon in Arkansas on Nov 17, 2012
# update - I ran the Half Marathon. It was GREAT!
#3 Be a positive influence on the staff at my school. Continue to encourage them with their fitness goals through weekly "fit tips", goal setting "follow through", and once a week fitness workout ideas
Still working on this one...
I am a strong fit runner!
I train 3 days a week, each week, all year!
Mon or Tues - 5 - 6 miles
Thurs - stairs or hill workout
Sat - long run with my group - Memphis in Motion
I live and work in Memphis, TN.
Life is an adventure to experience everyday!

Hello, Molly! So good to hear from you! Yes, I do have goals. They are written down, I've made myself accountable, and after only 6 days, I already feel so much better! NO excuses anymore!
We will be back in St. John the last 2 weeks of March. That's a yearly thing. My son has moved to Winter Park, FL, so I've been visiting him a little, and Scott travels a lot now, and when I can, I go with him. Retirement is not boring.
Btw, Clay has an adorable condo for sale in Nashville. He's lowered the price quite a bit. Great neighborhood. If you know anyone interested in buying, please let me know.
Yes, the weather is nuts! It's still in the 60s here today, but the radar shows the rain almost on us, and then 40s rest of the week. I stayed outside most of last week and all day yesterday. It is mid-January and so strange. We'll probably have snow in March and April!
Jerome has invited me back to MIH, but I'm not going to make a decision about that until I've stayed really, really committed at least a month. The way it's going now, that won't be a problem.
So very good to hear from you! Lets stay in touch!

Thanks for reading and commenting on my blog. Yes, it's almost in my backyard. There are several different places where people can park, the closest for me is about 2.5 miles. Sometimes I just run there instead of driving.
