Summer and some advice

Summer flew by, there was lots of running and some racing.  Not any fantastic running, mostly easy miles as the past couple of months have been filled with really low energy and heavy legs, more on that in a minute.
A few race pics from some fun races :)
 Freedom festival 10k 7-4-12, knowing I had a half 3 days later I gave it a good effort but did not push hard so that I had something left for Saturday.  Surprisingly I still got 3rd in my age group. 43:39

My sister in law Heather and I after the race :)

Hobbler Half Marathon 7-7-12, beautiful course and weather :)  My legs were tired from some hard running during the week but I did the best I could and enjoyed it.  I ended up 4th female and 1st in my age group.  1:32:43

Heather and I again :)

 Some beautiful runs during the summer months!  St. George, Utah.  Hot but beautiful!
shadows mean sun :)

Preview of Hood to Coast post coming soon!!

Lastly If any of you have any advice on anemia I would love to hear it.  I have been struggling with really low energy and finally went to the doctor to get my labs done.  Yep, anemic, now what?  At least there is an explanation for why I have had no energy!


  1. I am anemic and take an iron supplement once a day. Glad that you got it covered out so that you can start getting back some energy.

  2. Sorry to hear you are anemic! But I guess it is good to know why your energy is lacking. Do you ever drink green smoothies? Maybe a smoothie with some orange juice as a base (since vitamin C helps with iron absorption) and lots of spinach? If you also add a frozen banana or other frozen fruit, it will still taste delicious while hopefully getting you lots of iron.

  3. You are amazing! Great racing! I started taking an iron pill and a calcium w/ vitamin D every day and I think it has made a huge difference. Good luck- I hope you start to feel better.
