Asia's first marathon

Asia ran her first marathon on saturday!!! She is amazing. I don't know many 18yr olds that would put in the training that you need to do just to finish one of these. But she wanted to do something big after graduating from High school .

I loved training with her, mostly because we had time to talk and talk. And especially because she would be off to college the next year and I would be missing having her around.

We ran the Top Of Utah Marathon, it was perfect weather and a great course. I totally recommend this one. And Asia got in the top 20 for her age group!!!

This is us at mile 14... beautiful scenery all the way!!!!

thanks for being such a great example to me Asia!!!!

Dear Suzie,

My name is Julia Olsen. I am Jen Walker's sister and I just want to thank you for the influence you've had on my baby sister. She speaks the world of you. I hope to meet you someday. Also, she tells me that you are going to donate to the Festival of Trees and Lights to help benefit Down Syndrome. Thank you so much! What a great thing you are doing. Whenever I hear my daughter say new words and accomplish new tasks, I am grateful for generous people whose donations help her in many ways. Thanks again!

If you would like tax forms and/ or a receit, please let me know the retail value of your donation and where to send the forms.

Best Wishes,

Julia Olsen

Asia . . . you rock! Great job and thank you for inspiring me. I'm surprised Suzi will let me work with her despite my lack of running abilitites. I figure she runs enough for the both of us.
