Davis Moonlight Run 5K with the Fam 7/13/19

Davis Moonlight Run 5K with the Fam
This post is long overdue but I wanted to get it done before I posted about my marathon (Tunnel Light) I did last weekend. In July, I ran the Davis Moonlight run with my 8 year old. The whole fam ran the 5k but Hubby and my other son ran ahead of us. It turned out to be a great night of running for the whole fam!

Revel Mt. Hood Marathon Race Recap 6/29/19

Revel Mt. Hood Marathon Race Recap
I ran Revel Mt. Hood Marathon last month and what a race! Another fast downhill course that came with a surprising fast PR and Boston qualifying time for me! I still can't believe the time I ran on this beautiful course that started at Timberline lodge right on Mt. Hood in Oregon and finished at the Rainbow Trout Farm.

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!

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. :)
