50 miles....

I have been kind of out of the Blogging scene for a week or so. I have had am bunch of family here from Utah for my daughters baptism. It was a great week (end) and I am so super sad to have them gone, but at the same time, I am ready to get my house back in order.
On Saturday my sister Maria (older by 16 months) ran her first 50 miler. She and her husband trained together and then they were able to finish this race together. It is called the Antelope Island 50.... or something like that. It is in Utah and I really wish I could have been there to run some of it with her and to be at the finish line cheering her on. She posted a video on her blog of them finishing, yep... I totally teared like a baby. I am so proud of them. They finished in 11 hours. I have to tell you that her husband, Jason, has only run 1 marathon, a couple of half's and now a 50 miler. They are so awesome. There 13 year old (almost) son ran the last 7 or 8 miles with them and now he wants to run a half marathon this August. How fun is it that their family is all getting involved and interested in running.
WAY TO GO MARIA AND JASON!

Wow! That is so inspiring. Do you think you'll ever run an ultra?

I love how running is contagious. My 8-year-old is training for a 5K that we are running together on April 19. Yesterday he ran 2 miles, first one in 9:24 and the second one in 12:57. (Lesson learned! Slow down, don't go out to fast!)

I have missed your blog posts!

Thx Janni, I wished you could have been there too. Since you are the one who got me into running distance in the first place. You were my inspiration and it is cool to be an inspiration to others in my family. Now Trevor and My SIL are going to run a half this summer.

WOW!! 50 miler!! I thought a marathon was pretty crazy :) Way to go maria and jason.

That is a very popular 50 miler. I would like to do it someday. That is great that they did it together. HAHA My wife has no interest in going that far with me. She sticks to the half marathons. No shame in that though.

Whoo Hooo! That's awesome!
