2021 run for the elk half marathon finish line

2021 Run for the Elk Half Marathon

Last weekend was the 2021 Run for the Elk half marathon in Emporium, PA. I’ve recently thought about how cool it would be do run a half or full marathon in all 50 states. This race was state number 10. Full race recap below.

2021 Edgewood 5k and FCC3

The last 5k I ran was the virtual Vikings 5K last fall. The last 5k I ran in-person was the 2019 Jingle Bell 5k! It was nice to “race” this short distance again. In July I ran the 2021 Edgewood 5k and FCC3. Here is a quick recap for two quick races- and by quick…

2021 Louisville Sprint Triathlon

In preparation for the Half Ironman OH in July, I signed up for the 2021 Louisville Sprint Triathlon with a bunch of friends. Here’s how it went, what I learned and what I’ll do different next time. If there is a next time…

2021 Carmel Half Marathon

Last Saturday I ran the 2021 Carmel Half Marathon in Carmel, IN. It felt amazing to be racing in-person again and to feel all the good running vibes. I hope that all races can (safely) get back to being in-person soon. Let’s talk about the course, swag and how the race went for me.

2021 Carmel Half Marathon + Other Races This Year

It’s still weird to write 2021. The number just looks weird, right? Anyway, I just signed up for the 2021 Carmel Half Marathon! It’s supposedly going to be an in-person race! With mask requirements (except during the race), limited spots, and staggered start times, I’m confident it’ll be a safe race.

Fall 2020 Virtual Race Recaps

Virtual races have done a mediocre job at keeping me active without our normal training group runs. I compiled a list of my 2020 virtual race recaps from this fall. Including opinions of the routes I selected, the swag and overall race management. Train on!

2020 Fall Virtual Races

Since basically all in-person races in 2020 have been cancelled, I’ve resolved to a bunch of fall virtual races. It’s good to have something to work toward, other than post-run donuts! Although they were definitely a motivating factor last weekend.

2020 Ironman Ohio 70.3 Cancelled | Now What?

It’s official, the 2020 Ironman Ohio 70.3 is cancelled. I’m honestly more relieved that I am bummed out. This is week 14 of a 20 week training plan. I was not confident that I could get the swim speed and endurance in just 6 weeks. We were given a few alternate races later this year,…
