Shamrock'n Half Marathon Race Recap 3/17/19

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

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!

Goal for Marathon #3 - Tunnel Light Marathon

Goal for Tunnel Light Marathon 2018
Yep, I'm still here. I know I have been totally slacking from the blog but ever since our trip to Europe it kinda just fell to the wayside. I had some posts set up especially weekly wraps of my workouts but I just never ended up finishing them, thus no posts. Anyhow, here I am in Seattle at the airport waiting for my friend to arrive and about to partake in my 3rd marathon, The Tunnel Light Marathon (on Sunday), and I figure I should post my goals.

Tunnel Light Marathon Training Week 7: 6/11-6/17

Week 7 of marathon training is in the books! Again I got in all my scheduled runs and workouts. It was the first week of the kiddos out of school. We didn't have any camps for them their first week out so it was nice not being on a set schedule. I got some things done that I had been meaning to do, so that was nice too. I also got my review of LocoModiv's Neo32 pack up on the blog and you can check that out here.

Here's a recap of what I did last week following Coach Dawn's plan:
