I can’t believe I’m training for a third marathon! We moved to Cincinnati over a year and a half, I’ve watched the marathon twice and ran the 10K last year, so I’d say it’s time I run the full marathon.
After finishing my last 2018 race, I thought it’d be a good idea to list out all the 2019 races I plan on clapping in. I mean participating in. 😛
Last Saturday I completed the Jingle Bell 5K my last race of 2018. Even though Becca and I said we were going to take it easy, we managed a 9:50 pace, my official time being 30:33. The race benefits the Arthritis Foundation and drew roughly 2000 runners. Or should I say 2000 santas? Seriously, there were…
I ran my first Thanksgiving Day 10K and set a new 10K PR! The weather was cool, the route was challenging and I felt strong.
The 2018 Indianapolis Monumental Marathon was last weekend. After 18 weeks of training, including a few half marathons, and the very anxious week before, it’s all over. It’s a weird feeling- I feel so accomplished but also sort of sad that it’s over.
The marathon countdown has begun!
After 18 weeks of marathon training, I’ve got a list of 26 things I’m going to do after the marathon!
I’m happy to report that I crushed the 2018 Queen Bee Half Marathon! I didn’t PR or anything, but I felt wonderful, had negative splits and finished strong.
Last weekend my friend Amy came into town and I made her run the 2018 Warrior Run 5k. Coming from Minnesota, where it was 40s and raining, Amy was shocked by Cincinnati’s humid and 80s weather. Nevertheless, she powered through all 3.1 miles and finished strong!
Last weekend I traveled to Napa, California with three girlfriends for the 2018 Napa Half Marathon. I’ll cut to the chase; I had a terrible run. More on why I sucked, a course review and the sweet swag!
