I'm 59, retired RN, happily married, Nana to 8 beautiful grandchildren.  Picked up running in 2005 at age 50, to stay healthy so I can take care of my hubby who has AVR and MVR in 2004 and End stage RF in 2014.  We have 6 children (1 daughter, 5 sons) who are kind, hardworking, caring, wonderful people... Wish they live closer to us!!!  :)  :)  :)

With Karen and Leslie on MCT.  Cold enough to see your breath, incredible sunrise, blue sky morning.  The Altra feels great on my feet with smooth strides.  6 miles in 57:38.  AP: 9:36.

Slept in the downstairs guest room; got 5.5 continuous sleep...very tired when Karen's text "kicked" me out of bed!  :p  Ran with Karen and Wendy on rail trail.  I was pathetically slow on the uphill.  Love the sunny blue sky.

Got 5 hours sleep, albeit broken up, was the most I've ever gotten lately! :)  Ran with Karen and Leslie for 3, then ran to pick up Amanda for 2, last 1 home by myself.  Was windy and cold at the start but the sun quickly warmed things up.
