I've been running since I was nine.  I'm married to a fellow runner who inspires and supports me.  We have two children:  Cole (4) and Lily (18 mos.)  I help Bill Cobler coach cross country at East High School.

I ran the TOSH Jordan River Half Marathon as a tempo run today. My goal was 6:30 average. I hit it pretty close. I need to learn to focus a lot better in the later miles of a race. My stomach wasn't happy. I had one quick pit stop. I also missed where the course went under a bridge and had to backtrack. Oh well! Good effort, and I got a little money for the morning. I don't feel anywhere close to being ready for a marathon, but efforts like today will help! I think sub-2:50 is a good goal for TOU.
