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.
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.
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!
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.
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,…
I haven’t completed a duathlon race since 2016! The Esprit de She Lakeville Duathlon was a 2 mile run – 12 mile bike – 2 mile run. I loved that race and completed it two years in a row. It had the best swag!
How are you surviving COVID-19? It’s a crazy time, no? For normalcy’s sake, I figured I’d do a currently post. I haven’t done one since last October! Who’s ready to see what I’m cooking, baking, and how training is going?
I can’t keep it a secret anymore, I’m registered for the 2020 Ironman Ohio 70.3! More on why, what a half Ironman consists of, and the training plan I’m following in this blog post.
Last weekend Nolan and I ran the 2020 Cyclone’s 10K in downtown Cincinnati. It was our first race of 2020 and Nolan’s first 10K race.
Over the weekend Nolan and I ran the 2019 Jingle Bell 5K in Covington, KY. It was Nolan’s target race from his couch-to-5K training. After running the Thanksgiving 5K in 33:33, his goal was to run it faster than 33:33.
