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 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.

2020 Valentine’s Hearts “R” Running 5K

I didn’t realize the 2020 Valentine’s Hearts “R” Running 5K was the weekend after the Cyclones 10K when I signed up. I don’t think anyone would suggest running races back-to-back weekends. Not to mention running 7+ snowy miles and swimming 1000+ yards the day before. But that didn’t seem to effect our performance…

2019 Jingle Bell 5K

2019 Jingle Bell 5K

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.

2019 Queen Bee Half Marathon

The past weekend was the 2019 Queen Bee Half Marathon in Cincinnati. I had been really bummed about not getting into Chicago, but was grateful to be able to run this fun race again. The week leading up to the race I was traveling for work. I missed a few of my runs and didn’t…

2019 Hudy 14K Race Recap

This past weekend was the 2019 Hudy 14K race downtown Cincinnati. Compared to last year’s race, this run was hot and humid! So it’s no surprise my pace was slower, but I was still happy with a 1:32 finish with a pace of 10:37. Plus, what better excuse to wear my beer socks and pose…
