View my Pikes Peak Ascent/Marathon results
Set state age group record for marathon when I was 18 (not many 18 year old girls running marathons in 1984!) Have run a few 50Ks and a couple of 50 milers.
What I like about trail/mountain running:
Much more challenging than roads...no cars and most of the time..very few people
Favorite running trail and why:
Rampart Res. ...very beautiful and peaceful just before daylight; it is especially breath-taking on a cold morning with about 6 inches of fresh white powder....
Favorite trail/mountain race and why:
Le Grizz 50 Miler in Kalispell, MT. A grass roots race with few people, a shot gun start, beautiful course, and minimally supported.
Best running experience:
It's always good...there might be days when I am tired or a bit overtrained, but the experience is always good. There has never been a moment at the end of a run when I wished I had not gone.
Worst running experience:
One a training run around Rampart Res. and being overtrained, I fell three times!
Neatest thing found on a run:
Running related bathroom stop story:
too many to list
Running pet peeves:
not being able to run 6 days a week; barking dogs that want to munch on my thigh
Something non running related that no one would guess about me:
my other spare time activity is quilting!
Other hobbies and interests:
quilting and graduate school
The main goal for 2012 is to run a 100K.
