Moab 1/2 Marathon

So I spent this weekend in Moab, Utah running the half marathon with a couple of girl friends. Moab is one of the most scenic places you could ever visit, and the canyon that you run down is spectacular! I really do love this race. I post my miles and times on Fast Running Blog and trust me there are some fast runners posting their times and miles on this blog. Of all the bloggers that participated in the Moab 1/2 I was the slowest... so humiliateing :( I'm probably an embarrasment to the blog. I really don't know what has been up with me lately, if it's age, or that I'm not training effectivly. But I seem to be slowing down considerable and it's making me a bit sad. Also when I participate in running events, I have a hard time pushing myself I think the way others do. Don't get me wrong, I run hard, but not usually until I know that I will make it to the finish line. I don't trust my body, my training, or something. The thoughts of running til I puke don't make me want to run, so I usully hold back until the last few miles before I pick up my pace a bit. I was able to pass quite a few people at the end, but still ended about 5 minutes slower then last year.

New Fairy

My brother-in-law is one of my biggest fans :) The fairy that is in my profile picture was made for him and his wife. They have been asking for another one for a I figured I should get myself busy and do it. I really like 1940 style pin-up art, and thought I would like to try something along that style. She is kind-of a cross between action hero body and pin-up body. Will have to see how she evolves. Sorry for the picture quality... I will try to get some better shots of her as I go. But I would like to know what you think of her so far :)
