My Marathon Crew

Here we are at the early morning start of the SLC 2010 marathon. From the left are my oldest daughter Erin, my wonderful neighbor and Michael's best friend's mom Shauna, my third daughter Lauren, me, 17 year old son Matt, and 14 year old son Morgan. Lauren, Matt and Morgan ran the half and Erin, Shauna, and I did the full. This was Shauna's first full and Lauren's first half and they both blew me away with their determination. We all managed personal best times for our events and I'm quite sure we all felt another tall strong boy running along with us. I hope to participate in this event every year until I have to be pushed in a wheelchair.


  1. Gail,
    Congratulations on another great accomplishment. You really inspire me!

  2. Gail, congrats on another marathon! Every time I WALK 2.5 miles in my neighborhood I think about you RUNNING 5 miles before teaching all day -- and around the same boring block at that! You are an inspiration not only for your exquisite needlework skills, but also for your amazing strength in the face of adversity. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Michael must be so proud of his mom.
