Running update

I've been running 3 days a week for the past year.  I was lucky enough to be living in Columbus, Ga while my sister in law, Ruth, lived there two.  She is the greatest exercise partner.  You know, reliable, easy to talk to, exercise level equal, and she's one of my best friends.  I really thought I was in trouble when I moved away from Georgia and Ruth and back to Utah.  I've talked before about how impossible exercise is for me without a partner, and I was really worried.  Luckily Ruth ended up moved here too! There were a rough couple of weeks before she arrived, but thankfully we fell right back into our routine and it's been great.  Unfortunately between the move and the lack of partner for a couple of weeks, I didn't end up running the half marathon I was planning on running November 3.

But we've found another race to do, so I'll be running the St. George half marathon in January.  This is the race that I did 5 years ago that was my first half marathon.  It wasn't the best experience all around, and I'm hoping to redeem myself.
