Ran my 7th half this morning, this Rio Grande Half. It was a great run! I tried to keep in my mind that it was just my training run for this week but I still wanted to do well. I got a PR, by about 2 minutes and it felt like I definitely wasn't maxed out. That speed work and marathon training is making a difference. You can see me towards the back in this video, wearing teal and white. I always start towards the back, passing people feels better than them passing me.๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿฅˆ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ˜

Finished my first 50k!(Actually32.8 miles!) I'm so excited! It actually felt stronger than I thought I would. My training wasn't what I wanted it to be. But I think the other races I did helped. Now to work on my time.๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ฃ

Hey all! Finished my 4th race for this season. Ran my third half marathon for this fall, the Albuquerque Half. It usually takes place in spring but had been postponed since spring of 2020. I came in 4th in my age group. On top of the half, I ran a couple miles before which was a great warm up and then a very slow 5 miles after for a total of 20 miles, my last 20 mile run for this season. Now I'll taper before I run and Lord willing finish my first 50k at the end of this month. It was also fun getting an extra challenge medal since I finished both the Chips and Salsa Half and Albuquerque Half. It was a beautiful autumn day for some running!


Finished my 8th marathon today! Slow time but just praising God that I could be there and finish, being only 8 weeks out from testing positive for you know what. Over 60,000 steps today! I'm going to sleep now.๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜ด

Been a while! But I'm still running! Loved running among the balloons this morning, so beautiful. 12 miles with ABQ USAFIT. Tapering for Duke City.
2 weeks until marathon #8. I didnt know if I'd get to run it being only 6 weeks out from "the Rona." Praising God for a quick recovery!

This was my running space for this last week! Love, love running on the beach. This one is so beautiful. We stayed in a gorgeous beach house on St. Joe Beach in Florida. So many examples of the beauty of God's creation. Was such a blessed week with my husband and sweet fellowship with great friends from church. Also enjoyed my first experience of kayaking in the ocean, so fun!

So. Yes my marathon last Saturday was virtual. And yes it was my worst time out of my 7 marathons. But I was excited to learn that I came in 2nd in my age group! Got some special things in the mail today for my age group placement. Very fun!

Hi everyone! Sorry I'm so bad about updates, life is busy! So this month I participated in all 4 distances of the Shiprock virtual races. Did pretty good in all of them so far. I ran the marathon today, my 7th! It was completely solo and hard! I got my slowest time. But I pushed through when my brain said to quit because it was just virtual, Thanks to a daughter's text at just the right moment and knowing that I had family and friends waiting at home for me to finish. I'm excited over all that I completed another marathon. And for placing pretty well in the other distances. A few pics from today and how I placed in the other distances.

Hi Everyone! Sorry it took me so long between posts. This is an update on things. It's a little long, thanks for watching and for your support!


A couple of not terrific videos from this morning's snowy run. But decided to post them anyway.๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŒจโ„โ˜ƒ๏ธ

Was surprised this morning to wake up to a little white on the ground and good snow falling. Made for a fun different run. I love running in the snow, its so peaceful and quiet. Of course this afternoon the sun is out and the snow is gone. But thats fine, I like running in it but don't really like having it around very long knowing family has to be out driving in it.


Happy Thanksgiving to you all! I have so many blessings to be grateful for everyday. Truly thanking God for them all today.
Enjoyed starting this beautiful day with a 5 mile run, now to finish up the cooking. Hope your day is abundantly blessed!

Building weekly miles back up the last couple weeks. I've been taking advantage of living very close to Albuquerque's west mesa and have been exploring some petroglyph trials as well as mesa trails. Wound up on a new path today with a great view of ABQ, the Rio Grande Valley and the Sandia and Manzano Mountains, along with some great clouds. Very blessed!

Nice to be back to trail running after finishing my marathon a couple weeks ago. Trial will be my focus for the next 5-6 months. The Bosque was so nice and peaceful and found some fall color left.

Heading to bed finally. Super tired of course. Over 57,000 steps today. Definitely need some of Mikayah's magnesium body butter!

Completed my 6th marathon today! Very excited! (Even though I did not even come close to that goal time I told you about).

Got my last 20 mile run in for this training round. Took another 13 minutes off my time which makes me feel much better about being able to finish near my goal time. Now its time to taper. Getting excited to try for a new PR. No matter what is going on around us, we just have to keep going strong for the Lord!

2nd 20 miler done. 13 minutes faster than the first with negative splits the last 5 miles. Felt good with energy to spare. Seemed foggy at first but then saw the pink sun and wondered if it was smoke even though we couldn't smell any. Passed the Bueno Foods plant gearing up to roast some more green chile. Temps were great starting at 49. Getting excited for my 6th marathon.

Early morning long run with the group. First 20 miler done for this training round. So thankful it stayed cool up until the last few miles and for getting these 20 done strong. Got my pink drink and my bacon egg bites from Starbucks after, definitely starting to become a habit.๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜Š


12 miles along the Bosque today with me running group. Beautiful morning! God is so good! Pouring out His Grace and peace upon us! Next week 18.


Loving my summer runs! Love seeing the sunflowers, this one especially with the morning glory wrapped around it against the beautiful blue sky.

Beautiful morning, nice 10 mile trail run. First run in with a snake for this season, not great pics but did get these two after quickly having to dodge around him. And I just love the trumpet vines in bloom!


I finished the virtual marathon that I told you about earlier in the week! It was my 5th full marathon. So loved having my son with me the last 6 miles, such a blessing and a help. Also got my second best time even though the course I mapped out had plenty of hills. You can't really avoid that on the westside of Albuquerque. So glad to have finished, Praise You Lord!

The tomb is empty, Jesus is alive! He is the only way to have true and eternal forgiveness, and true Joy and Peace. During such times as this, with so much fear and uncertainty, run to the Lord Jesus! He will give you peace and joy and strength. Happy Resurrection Day! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’œ

Long trail run today. Explored new trails in the Bosque. Beautiful morning. Just keep on running. And trusting the Lord with the future. No one can have true peace except in the Lord Jesus Christ. Go enjoy the great outdoors and fresh air.๐Ÿ™‚

Ran my first official trail race this morning. Not super difficult but definitely had steep hills, lots of sand, and some narrow trails. Unexpectedly got first in my age group, very excited about that! Great way to turn 53.

Sorry I've been MIA on posting lately! Going to try to pick it up again. Got some new stuff in the works. Some new nutrition certifications and working on starting online training.
But for today, A great overcast morning to run 15 miles. Ran from home up on to the West Mesa and out to the volcanoes. Nice temp in the low 40's, got home before the rain started. Ran some great trails with sand in places and lava rock in other. Got some nice hills in. Great training run for the new Shiprock trail course.

So I finished that 3rd 10k race this morning. The course was measured out too long and there was confusion about where to turn around. Because of that I did not get a PR but I does look like I finished second in my age group. Overall, it was a fun race with great swag. A fun hoody and a great snow globe finishers medal. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿฅ‡

Starting to add more trail running. Found these off the path up by Boca Negra.
They were fun to find, like finding little treasures. Thanks to whoever brightened the path with them.


Hi Peeps.๐Ÿ˜Š Yesterday I ran my second of three 10k's that I signed up for for Nov. And Dec. I achieved my goal of running a 10k in under an hour. Ran it in 59:30 and came in 3rd place for my age group. I'm excited! But I still have one more next Saturday. I'm going to try to PR again and it would be really fun to place again. So far two races, two pr's, and two times placing for my age group, want to make that 3 out of 3.
