Category: My Race Reports


This didn’t go quite like I’d planned but good enough to place 6th/166 in the 40-49 age group & 229th/1545 overall! Plan was 23:50–wanted to improve upon my 5k time 2 weeks ago of 24:25…had a stellar pace going out of the gate & into the second mile & then I got the worst side stitch EVER & that sucker… Read more →


My legs are officially toast! Yesterdays’ 5k definitely put a damper on my performance today…shins were so sore when my feet hit the floor this morning & they never really loosened up. My body & heart wanted to rock this course today but my legs had other plans. I had to walk many times, even on a few of the… Read more →


Talk about close!!  As I make my comeback, my only goal for today was to squeak back under 2:00 for the 1/2 & worry about getting back down to where I was later down the road.  I didn’t go whole-hog since I had to proceed gingerly about how I planted my boo boo foot with each stride (even though 2… Read more →

440th female out of approx 4302

Now this race was FUN!!  No stress, no expectations, just hoping not to fall, get mud in my eyes or get an infection from the nasty water!!  I exceeded my expectations for this event & was pleasantly surprised with how well I placed in my age group, gender & overall, considering I really wasn’t going all out & that I’d walked most of the VERY uphill, first mile!  I recruited my husband as well as a bunch of friends to partake in the madness with me & we together, rented a lodge with pool not far from the course & turned this into an adult party weekend!  Here’s the standings:
