Hi everyone!

This is my introduction for my Ragnar team. My name is Mindy Heaton. This is my cute little family. My husband Michael & I have been married for 16 years. We have one daughter named Aubeny who is 13. I coudn't figure out how to rotate the picture so we are sideways. : )

This is a picture of a 10k race I ran in May 2009. In November of 2008 I suffered a dibilitating stroke, which left me paralized and unable to speak. I made an amazing recovery. So at my 6 month "strokiversary" I celebrated by running this race.

I am going back to school at Utah State University majoring in human movement science. Someday I hope to work in the area of stroke rehab helping other stroke victims. I work at Nibley Elementary as a Literacy Aide teaching children how to read. It is a great job!

That is a little information about me. I'm excited to run Ragner!

It will be an adventure! : )

Happy New Year!

I can't believe the year is almost over. How time flies! This is a quick post to let you know how we are doing.

Michael still works for JBS (formerly EA Miller). It graveyards but it is a good job. His health is good, 31/2 years out from his last bout of cancer. Yay!

Aubeny is 12 and in 7th grade. She loves to dance! She is on the competition team & will be doing a solo again this year.
I still work at Nibley Elementary as a Literacy Aide. I just completed my first post-stroke semester at USU. It was challenging but fun. I ended with an A-, A- & a B. I also passed math! The new year hold more adventures for all of us. It's sure to be fun and exciting! We hope everyone has a very happy new year!

On the 4th of July my sister Fiauna & I decided we were going to run in a race together. So we woke up bright and early, I picked her up at
6 A.M.
and headed to Lewiston, Utah. We ran the 5K part of the Lewiston Patriot Border Run. She totally beat me!
That's okay I'm just glad I am able to run. It was really fun!

School's out for the SUMMER!!!!!

Hi this is Aubeny again. It's summer time! I have gone swimming three times already! I can't get enough of swimming! One bad thing is I'm sun burned really bad on my shoulders. But I'm going to have a fun summer anyway.

A look from the INSIDE!

Last week I had a CT Scan to check my stint and this is actually my head. I couldn't figure out how to rotate the picture so it's sideways. Everything looks good, but they are worried about the end of the stint because it narrows. The doctors are going to keep an eye on it for now. It's amazing what they are able to do now. I'm so glad to be living right now! : )
