My twin sister Frances......


So I have never in my life gone more then a month or so with out seeing my twin sister Frances. We moved here to Ky in July and I have not seen Franny since then. So we are talking 3 and a half months here folks. That is a long time for us. But for those of you who only know me via the blog world, I will give you a bit of a back ground with the two of us.

Growing up we were completely different from each other. I was wild and outgoing, she was quiet and very shy. As we got older (just after high school) we started to not only get along, but want to hang out with each other. She got married about a year after High school and had a baby pretty quick. I was married about 6 months after Marcus was born. We had our little girls just 6 weeks apart, and they are best friends. They get along so well and they miss each other just as much as Franny and I do. We were in the room when we had our babies and we have been there for each other through out the years. I adore her, and she doesn't even know it.

Well, the reason I have decided to blog about her on my running blog instead of my family blog, is because while she is here, I will actually have someone to run with. I know, Yay for me. She is running a half marathon 4 days after she gets back to Utah. This will be her third and she ran them all this year. I am kind of hoping that maybe next year she will realize that she is capable of running a full. (wink wink)

So you are in good running shape now? Feet are good?

I always wanted a twin. Sounds like so much fun. I hope my girls (3.5 years apart) are close like you two some day.

Enjoy your run with your sis!

I noticed your marathon PR and you are CRAZY FAST. Is she fast like you?
