Lori and Marinda, I have to confess, I didn't get my 30 miles in this week. I spent all day preparing my Relief Society Lesson and never found time for a run. I am a little disappointed, but next week my goal is 35miles. To make up for my laziness this week. I have to say i am so proud of how hard everyone is training you guys are an awesome team! Keep it up, it's almost game time!

With all these new course changes (thats about to drive me crazy! I train for hills and get distance, I train for distance and get hills, now I have both hopefully it won't change again)!!! Anyway we decided to move around some of the leg assignments, see below:
LEG #1 - KIM
LEG #2 - VAL
LEG #3 - LORI
LEG #4 - MOLLY
LEG #5 - ZAHLORE
LEG #6 - EMILEE
When you get a chance, look over your legs to see if this is okay. If you want to change, get with that person and work out a trade. I hope this is okay with everyone!!
I look so forward to meeting you all! I'm excited to run with Zahlore again, you are hilarious!

Last, but not least, Course Map update. If you haven't heard the course map has changed a bit. It really hasn't affected van 2, but van 1, just a little bit. Leg 1 not much, but a little more difficult. Leg 2 easier - Leg 3 a little more diff. Leg 4no change, and Leg 5 HARDER. So if any of you would like to switch, contact that person. Kim would like more miles if she could get them. She is leg 2. Just look it over, talk it over, and let Lori "Sexy Legs" Nelson and I know.
Thanks again guys for making this possible. If I wouldn't have found a team,,,,well,,, I guess I would've been running with the Joe City crew. No, but I am so excited and I hope you all are too. Keep up the training, we are almost there.

(She may be going to her class reunion instead. Crazy I know! Does anyone go to those anymore? J/Kiddin')
So far we are full, in less someone drops out.
The Shirts we ordered are for Del Sol and Wasatch. We will let you know the cost once we find out ourselves. Thanks!
Oh, and to all you that are posting on the blog WOOOHOOO you guys ROCK! Last year it was basically Kar and I making fun of each other.
One more thing let me know who is planning on stay the night in Mesa Saturday. I am getting rooms. I am staying. I am planning on PARTYING (Alcohol free of course) with my sistas, and the rest of the UTAH GANG. I"ll be seeing you soon!
Woooo hooo this is Las Tres Chicas okay it's Emilee or Em is what she gets called, our mom, who ran the 5K in St. George and Me, Kim (When we were in St. George running the half marathon) Our mom is 66 and she is awesome she got 2nd place in her division which she calls old. she wanted to celebrate the 3 of us running and said that she bought us the twinner shirts so that we would be able to run really fast. This is after the race so we have that beautiful after race glow (NOT!) So this be us!!!
I have a question can someone put the list of who is on for the Wasatch Back. I know with Em leaving it creates a space and I know 2 girls in my neighborhood who would LOVE to run with us if there is the need so just let me know. My friend Kandice is running the wasatch back with us and she is awesome we actually run by her house in Morgan. Can you say hot showers?
Okay here is my challenge question: Who wants to run the Ogden Marathon May 16th. I thought it would be a great way to break in my aaaahhh having to turn 40 in May. I am nervous but I know my mentality is weaker than my physical so maybe I can get the two of them to get along. Anyway, it is cheaper if you register before Jan. 31st the race is May 16th so I think I am going to go for it. A bunch of runners I have talked to said its an excellent race to start off with so aaaaah here I go!
Thank you for getting the shirts that is great. I was kind of hoping for tube tops but I guess we can still look sexy in tanks (just kidding) I already love you all!
I am not fast either and everytime I think I am really getting faster I read the blog and get smashed. O'well I am just going to do my best and have a whole lot of fun.

Molly good to see you on here. I was so happy to see you had joined us. It is so fun to put a name to a face. Keep us updated. Sounds like your training is going well. I totally understand, finding hills here in Tucson is not an easy task either. My hills are little bumps in the road.
Katrina, did you get my evite to be an Author on here? If so get on here girl! If not let me know. I will send you another one. Can't wait to see you again. It's been awhile. Well I am putting some pictures on from our Wasatch race to get you all Pumped UP! Can't Wait! Happy Training to you!!!!

I don't think the link to my page worked out at the end of that last post.
Try this: www.astoldbymolly.blogspot.com
I can usually be found hanging out around there. Come stop by and drop a line if you get time in between those weekly tempos and speed sessions.
Thanks, again for having me on the team. I've already told Val; but I am a little nervous about my preformance compared to you other runner logging ten-plus miles a day. I run to maintain my sanity and jean size. But I will always do my best and am so excited for the big day.

I went ahead and booked our rooms. To get this price I had to pay in advance. The price per person is $19.20. I was planning on collecting the money when we checked in, but I had to pay now. If you could send the money when you get a chance that would be great. I looked at the reviews and all 9 people said the rooms were kind of small, but Very clean. This was the least expensive place I could find, without staying in a dive. Thanks-Sarah
P.S. HAPPY TRAINING!!! Oh one more thing I emailed you the itinerary if you want to check it out.
This is for DEL SOL.

Molly - LEG 4
Val - LEG 5
Emmily - LEG 6
Amy - LEG 7

Nikki - LEG 9
Raquel - LEG 10
Sarah - LEG 11
Karleen - LEG 12
Here are the leg assign. If anyone is not happy with their leg, contact the person you would like to trade with. Keep in mind any leg you have is going to take training. There is really not an easy leg on this new course. But don't let that sike you out. As long as you are trying to run 5-6 days of week you should do fine.
Also I think the best place to meet is in Phoenix. We need to leave extra vehicles there, because that is where the race ends. We can leave vehicles with family that live down there. I am getting rooms in Prescott. They will cost us approximately $25 a piece. The cost of the Vans will be $20 a piece. We will split the cost of gas, and not sure how much that will be. Hopefully the gas prices will continue dropping. If you have any questions please contact me. 520 572-9191 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Please continue to check your email and our team blog for more details. Thanks again for joining me on this adventure. Yes, I know it seems like alot of work, but it is SOOOOO worth it. I promise you will have fun!
One more thing, you girls from Utah are probably going to want to stay the night in phoenix before heading home. If my husband makes it home from Maryland, I might just stay too.
