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:

LocoMödiv Gear Untrakt Backpack Review

LocoMödiv Gear Untrakt Backpack Review
I was provided the opportunity to receive this product without charge in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.    

I had been thinking about getting a new backpack, especially one that would be able to carry my laptop around in. LocoMödiv Gear is different from other bags due to their straps. The straps make the pack customizable which is really neat! I was able to choose any bag from their site and my needing a backpack with a padded computer sleeve made the choice easier. I ended up with the Neo32 Pack.

Kaiser Permanente Women's Fitness Festival 5K Race Recap 6/3/18
This was my second time running the Kaiser Permanente Women's Fitness Festival. Last year I ran my fastest 5K time. You can check out last year's recap here. This year I was hoping to beat last year's time since training had been going well but unfortunately the stars did not align on race day.
