Epic Rock Tahoe Half Marathon Race Recap

Epic Rock Tahoe Half Marathon Race Recap
Last month I ran the Epic Rock Tahoe Half MarathonIf you recall, back in March I wrote a post about being a part of the #sweatpink team and the 5 things I was looking forward to for this race. You can check out that post hereIt was a lot more challenging course-wise for me but other than that it did not disappoint. One of the best things that I enjoyed about this race was meeting and hanging out with the Sweatpink/Fitapproach crew!

Yosemite Half Marathon Race Recap 5/11/19

Yosemite Half Marathon Race Recap 5/11/19
Wow! The Yosemite Half Marathon course put on by Vacation Races is a fast one! I ran this last month with my sister and some friends and it was a PR for all of us. Well for one it was her first half so she automatically PR'd but for the rest, we PR'd significantly. :) It was so much fun and a great racecation getaway!

Shamrock'n Half Marathon Race Recap 3/17/19
I ran the Shamrock'n Half Marathon in Sacramento on St. Patrick's Day this year. It was my first time racing it and it went great! I did run the race last year with a friend for fun, you can read last year's recap here. For this one, I wanted to race it and my goal was to get under 1:50 (my previous PR was 1:50:24).

Davis Stampede 5K Race Recap 2/24/19

Davis Stampede 5K Race Recap
Last month I ran the Davis Stampede 5K. It was my first time this year racing a 5K since last summer (Womens Fitness Festival 5K). I don't run a lot of 5K's so I knew it was going to be interesting. My goal this time was to get sub 24 and with the help of Coach Dawn and more speed work, I got it! :)

2018 Year in Running Review

2018 Year in Running Review
It's been another amazing year! I didn't run as many races as last year, I think one less but again it was a great year. You can check out what I did in 2017 here. 2018 came with more PR's and even a Boston qualifying time. I'm so thankful and grateful for everything that made this year go so well.

California International Marathon Race Recap 12/2/18

California International Marathon Race Recap 12/2/18
Happy New Year! This recap is pretty late, but as always better late than never. I ran CIM as my 4th marathon earlier this month. It was my second time running this run. You can check out last year's recap here. This year it wasn't a goal race for me so I figured I'd run with a coworker as it was going to be her first. Turned out to be a pretty fun run until I got calf cramps but we'll get to that later.

Turkey Trot on the Ranch 5K Race Recap 11/22/18
I ran the Turkey Trot on the Ranch 5K in Rancho Mission Viejo, on Thanksgiving day with my 9 year old son and my 11 year old nephew and it was a great race! I'm so glad my sister-in-law mentioned there was a 5k on Thanksgiving and that both boys were up for it because we all ended up with PR's. :)

Run The Parkway 20 Miler Race Recap 11/4/18

Run The Parkway 20 Miler Race Recap 11/4/18
I ran the Parkway 20 miler earlier this month as a training run for the California International Marathon or CIM. It was my second time running it as I ran it last year as well. You can check out last year's recap here. I enjoy this run because it is the best way to get 20 miles in if you are training for the CIM.

Tunnel Light Marathon Race Recap 9/16/18

Tunnel Light Marathon Race Recap 9/16/18
I pulled it off! I ran my 3rd marathon and came away with a PR and BQ at the Tunnel Light Marathon! Sorry for the late recap. Yes, it's been over a month since the marathon but I figure it's better to post late rather than not at all. Anyway, the race was held in Washington State and is a point to point course starting at the Hyak parking lot near Snoqualmie Pass ending in North Bend. If you read my goals for the race, I had to run a hard race to get my A goal but I got my B goal and am very happy with it!
