Salmon Falls 50K Race Recap 2/29/20

Salmon Falls 50K Race Recap 2/29/20
I ran my first 50k (31 miles!) over a month ago. I am so bad about doing my race recaps right after the race but with what is going on in the world right now, I can't say that I don't have the time to write this up. I hope everyone is being safe and staying home with Covid-19 out there. 

As to my recap, I ran the Salmon Falls 50k and it was a great first ultra marathon! I finished so I'm happy.

Fenix HM50R Multipurpose LED Headlamp 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 not worn a headlamp for running in a while. The one that I used (around 6-7 years ago) was pretty heavy and gave me a headache when I ran. I figured it was time to give another headlamp a shot and when I was given the opportunity to try the Fenix HM50R headlamp I couldn't say no. Especially since I knew that the Fenix brand was great having already reviewed their Fenix CL30R Camping Lantern, the brightest lantern I've ever owned. You can check out that review here.

Davis Turkey Trot 5K w/ the Fam 11/23/19

Here's another very late race recap but I figure it's better late than never. I ran the Davis Turkey Trot 5K with my 8 year old. Hubby ran it too but raced it on his own. The Turkey trot 5K was a great race for us! It's my second time doing the race. I ran it with my eldest son in 2016 and you can read the recap here. It was so fun to run it with my youngest this time and he definitely surprised me at the finish on this one. :)

Tunnel Light Marathon Race Recap 9/15/19

I ran my 6th marathon at the Tunnel Light Marathon in North Bend, WA in September (yes, this post is way late but I actually wrote it up at the airport but never posted it due to not getting the pics organized). It was my second time running this course. I ran it last year and you can check out my recap here. It was great because my sister and friend Lenora ran it again too. This was my backup race in case I didn't qualify for Boston at Revel Mt. Hood marathon. I was hoping I could qualify again since this race counts for 2020 and 2021 but mentally I wasn't in the race. However both my sister and Lenora wanted to qualify so it turned out to be an exciting race for them!
