New Years Resolution!!!!

Every year I try to challenge myself to be better than the previous year. I set goals, write them down, make a big effort until about mid February! This year I made 1 goal but didn't write it down-why have a visual reminder of a failed attempt? THEN I got a phone call from my dear sister, Margaret. She is younger than me-remember this. She told me that she had set a goal to run the 5k in the SLC Marathon. Her oldest daughter, Elle, is a runner and was going to run the 1/2 marathon (13.1 miles). Margaret said that our dad might run, too. He was a great runner in his "day". So I thought, "Why not?" So I told her I would run it, too. I have already done a couple of 5k races and so I have set a goal to run the 1/2 marathon with my cute, young niece! I bet she will leave me in the dust after 2 minutes! Right now she is running 10 minute miles, her 44 year old aunt is running 13 minute miles!!! Well, I have been training FAITHFULY! Just take a look at me now!

Yeah-I'm ready! Bring it!
