I am alive and crazy-

 I AM alive...
I must be crazy!  I swore I hated running got into cycling and LOVED it still do. However I am scared for my life riding here Oregon...yes is it considered VERY bike friendly. I swear that the roads here have zero shoulder, no bike lane and the speed limit is like 50 MPH everywhere...  Because I really love my husband and kids I find myself not wanting to ride here, for fear I will never return.  Plus it's not the same riding without my Utah BFFs. So I have done the unthinkable and signed up for a 10k....I specifically remember pulling out of my half. I wrote there I was hoping to have running be my passion, however right now it isn't! WELL I am hoping that it can be my passion again because as Brittany Spears says OOPS I did it again.... 
 I signed up for another 10k!!! BOOM August 10th I will rock the Huckleberry Half and 10k. Will I be as fast as I was 3 years ago probably not, will I finish? Absolutely! Have I talked my friends into doing it too? You betcha MOTIVATION in numbers! 
Bigfoot medal
 Did this medal have anything to do with it? Totally! Look how cute it is. eeek!

So far I am 2 days into my training!
 I ran 2 SLOW miles yesterday and swam tonight for 25 minutes for my cross training!

Wish me luck!

HELLOOOOOOO!!!! Fun to see you back on this blog. Good luck with running (you know how I feel about it). I MISS CYCLING WITH YOU!! I'm pretty sure you need to move back to Utah.
