The old lady blog

Yesterday I completed The Other Half Marathon in Moab (13.1 miles, WOOP!), and just walked (limped) in the door about an hour ago. Now I’m gathering up the family to head to the doctor to find out what happened to my right ankle at around mile nine. I’m going to see if they can X-ray [...]

Better watch his back

As Chuck gets older and weaker, I think Coco is getting ideas.

Mars

You (and I) can give Utah a hard time all we want, and it can sit back, laugh, point to this and say, “I have this. What do you have?”

One of the few drawbacks to the house we live in now is the absence of natural light, so it’s been hard to get great photos of the kids or the dogs while living here. Our old house was filled with light, so we could capture them spontaneously. Whereas here, if Marlo is doing something [...]

6.13 miles

Yesterday morning I took a run through the park in preparation for The Other Half Marathon in Moab this weekend. My trainer thought it’d be a good idea for me to get a race under my belt before the NYC Marathon to get a small sense of what I’m in for. Except I’ll be running [...]

Finding a problem where there is no problem

This morning as I drove Leta to school I looked in the rear view mirror to see a somber mood twisting the line of her mouth. It seemed much more sinister than a simple pout, so at a stop light I turned around, touched her leg and asked her if she was okay. She stuttered. [...]
