Hello Everyone

My name is Tancy Eyre and I'm 36 years old. I grew up as the youngest of 11 kids in the little town of Richfield Utah. (I have 8 sisters whos names all begin with the letter "T" and thus the unusual name of "Tancy.") As a freshman in highschool I had a crush on a senior who I later married when we both met up a BYU many years later. We lived in Missouri and Michigan for about 10 years while my husband was in school, but moved back to Utah in 2005 when we got tired of taking all of our vacations to come home and visit family. We now live in Salem, Utah (just south of Provo) and we have 4 kids, 2 boys & 2 girls, ages 12 to 5 who we love to pieces.

I started running about six years ago when I was sure I needed an to be medicated for anxiety. Not only did running calm my nerves, but it opened many doors for me, "The Wasatch Back" being one of them. I am excited to meet all of you!

Our kids are the exact same ages and gender. We'd have lots to talk about if we were in the same van. It will be great to meet you! : )

We're on the verge of getting to know each other much, MUCH better (my apologies in advance for anything I might say or do while grumpy, hot, hungry or tired).

So glad to meet you on paper... can't wait for the real thing!
