Goal Type:

Marathon Finish

Running Accomplishments:

Still learning- just got my 1st 5K masters in February and ran my 1st 1/2 marathon then too- Mercedes in Birmingham, AL. 

Short-Term Running Goals:

I would like to get my 5K time at least in 24 minutes and run my first marathon.

 

Long-Term Running Goals:

Be a good role model to my girls and to my students.  To be a good supporter of husband's endeavours- he is a top-notch runner.

Personal:

I am married to Jon Elmore who ran in high school and college, but wasn't a runner when we met.  He started back in his late 30's and is awesome:  Boston Marathon, ultras, state 1 mile record, etc.  He coaches our girls' track team.  He and the girls inspired me to get involved with running.  The first time I ran a 1 mile fun run I just prayed to keep up!

The weather held up through the race, but then had a short down pour.  I had wanted to have a PR, but still did my best yet on this course- better by almost 4 minutes from last year!  I started out to fast and the humidity started getting to me about the time we crossed back over the overpass.  My PR for an 8K is 43:14 and I was hoping for 42:59 this time, but hope to PR next weekend in Jesse Owens 10K.

It rained and stormed during the school day (enough so that we had a tornado warning), but it moved quickly through without major damage.  The sun came out just when school got out.  I got a quick 4 in with Brother before church.  At first he pulled me and then I pulled him.
