My name is Kelly and I am a blog slacker

I have been a total blog slacker. There has been a lot of things going on and my mind has just been other places. Matt's dad died last Friday of Colon Cancer. He died peacefully with all of his family at his bedside at their ranch. He was a wonderful man with a great sense of humor. He will be missed by all. His funeral is tomorrow and we will celebrate his life.

My running is going well. I have slowly eased back into training and I am feeling quite good. I think I'm getting my MOJO back. Finally. I have also been getting some swimming in too, and that makes me feel good. On Saturday my friend Tom Crull from Dallas will be here to run the S.F. 12 hour run at Crissy Field. I am excited to see him as it has been a while since our paths have crossed. When I ran the rim to rim to rim at the Grand Canyon, he ran the rim to rim. Wow, that was 6 months ago!

I want to concentrate on getting in great shape and in keeping healthy. I will be seeing a couple of specialist regarding my recent illness after Wasatch and I hope to get some answers. In the meantime, I am committed to eating well and taking good care of myself. Winter is coming and that means less daylight for training and more cold, rainy days that can make getting outside running or swimming more of a chore. I will remain committed and motivated. I am pacing my good friend Suzanna at Hurt 100 in January so that is more reason to get out there and get my body hard. I have got to be at the top of my game to pace her, and I will be. I hope everyone who reads my blog is committed to getting in better shape this winter. We all know that getting in shape can be hard, but once you have made exercise a habit and a priority, it is so much easier to get out there and do it. With that said, Get out there and JUST DO IT!!
