Race Report: Gorge Waterfalls 100k

I don't exactly know where to start with this race.  It didn't go the way that I had hoped it would.   I've been in my head a lot with this one, and unfortunately, I think that is also what influenced my race performance.  Either way, these are the ones that help you grow the most, … Continue reading Race Report: Gorge Waterfalls 100k

Race Report: Warner Robins Aviation Marathon

I started marathon training in November with the idea that I'd run sometime in January and try for a sub-3 hour marathon. My previous PR was a 3:24 from Boston, but my coach planted the seed that a sub-3 hour marathon was possible, and I couldn't resist.  She created an 8 week plan for me, … Continue reading Race Report: Warner Robins Aviation Marathon

Race Report: Yeti 100 Mile Endurance Run

I hardly even know where to begin with a race report for the Yeti 100 Mile Endurance Run, as the race started for me way before Friday September 30th.  One thing that I have learned in running 100 miles is that you get to know your strengths and weaknesses pretty intimately through the journey.  You … Continue reading Race Report: Yeti 100 Mile Endurance Run

Race Report: Hot to Trot 8 Hour Race

This will be my third race report in three weeks!  Races can be a great way to train for other goal races, and they can also serve as the perfect opportunity to connect with other runners. I really love running races, and I have to watch out or I'll sign up for everything that comes … Continue reading Race Report: Hot to Trot 8 Hour Race
