I have never done a race in Washington until this last Saturday and I am sure I will be back for more in the future after doing the beyond gorgeous RNR Seattle 1/2 Marathon.  The race started at 7 and we left the hotel at about 6:10 to walk a few blocks to the starting line (it gets light SOOO early in Seattle!).  It is so so so nice to be able to skip the whole ‘drive to the starting […]

The Marathon

The marathon.  It is kind of a beast:) What my face looked like for the majority of the second half of the race.  I am glad I am posting this for everyone to see.  Turns out that not every race is a good one:) As you can tell, things went downhill fast (NOT because my quad injury ((I took 5 weeks off from running leading up to the marathon to fix)) was hurting).  I would feel the area a little […]

Provo City Half Marathon Recap

I absolutely loved the Provo City 1/2 Marathon.  I will be back every year.  As much as I love traveling for races and seeing new areas, there is nothing like sleeping in your own bed on race night and running a course that you have done a million times in your training.  I woke up at 5 and quickly got dressed and triple checked that I had everything with me.  My dad drove and we went and picked up the […]

We met at 8 to get in a few miles of easy running (we got two in) and do other really cool things like pass around a bottle of 5 hour energy.  That stuff is the most disgusting thing I have ever tasted.   I ate a small bowl of cereal at around 7:40 and as I was leaving I spilled a diet coke that I had left on the counter from the day before all over the entire kitchen. […]

Total miles I ran—-> 24 Average pace for the 4 legs——>  7:15 ——————————– I knew I was going to have fun at the Vegas Ragnar but I really had no idea how much fun I would have.   First, let’s talk about the van.  Most teams with 12 members have two vans for the team and all of their gear.  We just had one huge one. Pros of one van:  I didn’t miss out on a thing.  I got to […]

Halloween 1/2 Marathon Recap.

October 27, 2013

The race didn’t start until 9 a.m. so it was kind of nice to ‘sleep in’ a little before getting out the door to race.  We met at the mall to jump on the busses and they took us to the canyon for the point to point course.  It was cold at the start but luckily we weren’t standing around for very long at before the gun went off.  The Provo Halloween 1/2 Marathon course changed about a week ago…. […]

Runner’s World 1/2 Marathon Race Recap

5ks and 10ks are fun (in a painful kind of way) but my true love is the 1/2 marathon.  I think it is the perfect race for me because it takes me about 6 miles to truly feel warmed up (I am a distance girl…sprinting is not my thang… I have been saying thang a little too much lately) and the recovery time after a 1/2 marathon is way faster than the recovery from the marathon (I still love the […]
