Short-Term Running Goals:

I had a third daughter in March 2015 and am now trying to work my way back into running shape. I ran through most of my pregnancy and hope I can bounce back quickly. This year will be a building year with some races sprinkled in later in the summer. I'm excited to get back into it again!

Personal:

I'm married to my great husband Riley Cook. He helps me accomplish my running goals. We have 3 daughters Evelyn, Hannah, and Nora. I'm also excited to be running for Utahrunning.com.

I ran my first race since my 2nd baby and I was overall pretty happy with my outcome. It's been awhile since I ran under 7 minute pace so my legs had a hard time getting going. My watch measured 3.24 at the end so I figured out online with my average pace of 6:47, I ran about 21:04 for 3.1. That's a good start for me. Hopefully I can continue to improve. I was the 4th female overall and first in my age group. The first two runners were really fast I wasn't expecting to compete or be up with them at all. But during the race I went back and forth with the 3rd place girl. I passed her about 1 mile into the race and thought she was way behind me, and then I let myself relax a little too much and she passed me with a mile to go and I couldn't catch her again. But i'm happy with my time. I ended up getting 8 miles in for the day too.
