Run happy and healthy all the days of my life. Be an example and inspiration to my family.
I'm 62, retired RN, happily married, nana to 11 beautiful grandchildren, mother to 6 children (1 daughter, 5 sons) who are kind, hardworking, caring, wonderful people! Wish they live closer!!! :) :) :)
Picked up running in 2005 at age 50, to stay healthy so I can take care of my husband who had endocarditis resulting in AVR and MVR in 2004, end stage renal failure in 2014, kidney transplant on Dec 30, 2015. Six months after the kidney transplant, we discovered that he has a rare auto-immune disease that was probably triggered in 2004 with then the undiagnosed infective endocarditis. The doctors had to make up a name for this rare disease, Monoclono Gammopathy with Renal Significance (MGRS). It is not curable. After desperately trying different chemotherapies, the doctor finally found one immuno-therapy, Daratumamab, that works to treat the MGRS. It is a miracle!!!
Grateful for the gift of life, blessings, dear friends and loved ones!!! Thankful for the ability to move, walk, jog, and yes run!!!!
Walked with Wendy and Karen who ran the Big Cottonwood Marathon last Sat.
First day working as ordinance worker in the Mt Timpanogos Temple from 10a to 5p. Lots of walking, standing, going up and down flights of stairs...my dogs are tired! :)

Mrs. Smooth, go to the http://huntsvilleutahmarathon.com site and view the complete marathon course in about 5 minutes....This course is nothing like Nebo. It may start at over 9000' but I don't see any sever down hill. I'm really getting excited to run this marathon. Tomorrow (Friday) I am going to go drive the course and maybe get out of the car and run a mile or two. As of this hour the weather gypsies are saying an overnight low of 39* and a daytime high of 63*. I don't see anything wrong with that......

Have fun at the Full Monte. I'll be sending you good vibes as I go out for my morning run. That's exciting that you are working as an ordinance worker now.

I bet you are the cutest Temple worker there. My mom works there on Thursday, she's pretty cute too. Oh how I miss living near a temple. I need to get to UT to get a sessions done.
