Personal:

Happily married with one kid. Chemical engineer. Although I've always maintained a healthy level of fitness, I didn't pick up running until junior year at BYU. Now I live in Idaho, where I leave for work at 5am and don't get home until 5:40pm. I try to get a short run in during lunch time at work and then a little something else after work. Some might call that a weekend warrior, but I make an honest effort during the week as well. Say hello!

2 mile warm up, then 45 minutes at M pace (7:30/mi). Felt pretty good, but I'm definitely not ready to run a marathon right now. Good thing it's not until October!

In other news, I signed up for the Idaho Falls Half (July 28). Happy to support Westside Elementary while trying out my first Idaho race. It's weird that I've been in Idaho for over 2 years and haven't participated in a race other than a fun run yet...
