On September 26th I ran the 2021 Chicago Half Marathon. It wasn’t my fastest race, but it was really enjoyable. Plus, it checked off another state, #11 on my list.
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.
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…
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…
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!
