Race Recap: Martian Invasion of Races Virtual Half Marathon 2020

People ask me all the time about my best race experiences. I have too many great races to talk about that I usually have to lump them in different categories. I don't often get asked about my least favorite races, or my worst races. Now I can confidently say that the virtual half marathon I… Continue reading Race Recap: Martian Invasion of Races Virtual Half Marathon 2020

Race Recap: Covid 25k

When 2020 started, or as my sister would say "in the before times", my goal for this year was to see if I could run a marathon in 5 hours or less. It was a steep, but not unreasonable goal for me. My current best marathon was at the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon in November 2019… Continue reading Race Recap: Covid 25k

Race Recap: Greater Midland Dow RunWalk 10k 2019

After accomplishing a couple of incredible PRs in the half marathon distance, I decided to "seek discomfort" (as my friend Katelyn puts it) and push to get a 10k PR. The 10k is my least favorite race distance. It is too short to take it easy, and a long distance to go all out. It… Continue reading Race Recap: Greater Midland Dow RunWalk 10k 2019

Race Recap: Winterlaufe 8k 2019

Wow guys. I must be busy... since I just noticed that I never wrote a recap for the Winterlaufe 8k that happened at the beginning of the month! Geez.

Race Recap: Dashing Through the Snow & Fire 5k 2018

For the first time in a few years I won't be running our local Christmas 5k. And since I have been keeping my "run a race every month" streak going strong for almost four years now, I wasn't going to let December bring me down! December races are a little challenging to find... apparently not… Continue reading Race Recap: Dashing Through the Snow & Fire 5k 2018
