crazy?

#7: I do things just for a thrill.  Some people get their thrills from sky diving, base jumping, flying an airplane, or driving really fast.  I get a thrill from participating in races that are more than I am trained for.  It helps me feel youthful because I can still do it!  So far, I have got a thrill from:

running 3 half marathons:

Canyonlands in Moab:

Park City Half (I don’t have a picture from this one oddly.  It was the prettiest half I’ve run!  Cecilie showed up after to greet me at the finish line)

Country Music Half in Nashville, TN:

 
Also, I’ve run a marathon of which I have pictures, and can’t find them…
After I moved to Atlanta I ran a relay with some friends:
And one time I did a sprint triathalon.  I certainly don’t have pictures to show for that one, but I did it with Gina Henderson and Robin Taylor. It was fun!  I’d definitely do another of those.  Except that I got kicked in the head multiple times during the swim, and I almost drowned in front of the lifeguard who did nothing…
And I also did a century ride with Torey.  Seriously, I would LOVE to get into biking!  All the equipment (namely the bike) is so expensive…
This fall I am doing another relay.  It should be a good time!!!

    So many good memories of Laura growing up. Yes, Apollo 13 must have been run at least 100 times. Laura is an orderly girl. I can’t believe the marathons and long distance bike rides with little training!!!
    Go, girl, go!!

    Lucky you’re still alive. IT’s safer to get thrills from dreaming at night, or as you used to call them: mare nights…….

    Perhaps the prior Cecilie comment was written by Dad? Yes Laura, you’re crazy.

    This post makes my knees hurt from thinking about running! The marathon was so painful!
