Races, Records, and my #1 Fan

(after the Laughlin Half in March 2008)

Scott might not love running ... but at least he supports my habits.

January 18, 2008 - 12 mile training run. My house to Scott's home in Sandy. Scott and I had just met at work on Monday, and we (me and shalece) needed a place to run that Friday, so of course his house seems like a good destination.

April 19, 2008 - SLC Marathon & and our 2nd date. I wasn't hobbling too bad yet, but I was moving pretty slowly in and out of the car.

June 21-22, 2008 - Ragnar Relay. He was one of our team's volunteers. We were a little late signing up, so he was stuck with the midnight to 6 am shift, on a road out in the middle of no where. Thanks.

June 23, 2008 - my birthday. All I wanted was for him to run 5 miles with me. He did. And I'm pretty sure he hated most of it.

August 30, 2008 - Salt Lake 1/2 Marathon & Relay (East & Immigration Canyon) Bright and early, Scott was there at the finish line.

September 27, 2008 - U of U Alumni Run (we're not utes, just cheap - we had a free entrance). Our 1st 5K! We were flying ...9 min mile pace :)

December 31, 2008 - my annual beat the New Year run. I made it just in time for a new years kiss.

March 28, 2009 - Laughlin Half Marathon. Scott and I drove to Vegas and I ran with Katherine in her very first race. Scott woke up at 5 am to drive with us to the start line. And was there at the end with water and my camera. What a cheerleader!

April 18, 2009 - Emily and I went out for the SLC 1/2 this past weekend. Scott was busy with finals and couldn't make it. But I dedicated a mile to him. But it was the first race Em and I have done together. And we both set PR's, running 1.43.36, 7:54 mile splits. We were excited!

Thanks for being there Scott. (maybe next time you'll be there through the whole race - running with me)


  1. It's good to have a supportive spouse. Matt has NO desire to do a fun run with me. We've walked a few Turkey Trots during our Dallas days, but he is there is full-force, kids and all, when I've really wanted to do a race (which are few and far between at this stage in my life)

  2. Congrats on the PR - that's awesome!
