  • Des Moines Half Marathon

    October 20, 2010

    This October I ran a half marathon in Des Moines, IA.  If you know anything about Iowa it’s that the weather doesn’t always want to cooperate but on the morning of October 17 the skies were clear and the sun was shining.  I’d like to say that I’m a natural runner and it was an easy race for me but I’d be lying. It was a beautiful run but it was a hard run and I was happy to see the finish line.

  • Half Marathon

    September 28, 2009

    As many of you know, Dusty ran two marathons a few years back and it has always been a goal of mine to run a half marathon. This September I finally did it and am proud to say that I finished in a faster time than I had hoped for. I would like to thank Doreen, Jane, Sara, Rod, Suzane, Les, Stefanie, Keely, Alyssa (who ran the first 10K with me), and of course Dusty for coming to cheer me on. People have told me that it’s such a boost to have family and friends on the sidelines and it truly was for me. Everyone time I would see a familiar face I could feel the difference. A couple friends and I will be starting to train for the Lincoln Half Marathon, which will be in May. Wish me luck!
