Race recap: Utah Valley 10K 2021

Similarly to the race the night before, this race was HOT HOT HOT! The photos are very misleading. There were gorgeous blue skies but the air was definitely heavy and dewy. The 10K was a point-to-point course. It required a bus ride to the start line. Thankfully my group stayed at a hotel near the …

Race Recap: Honolulu Marathon 2018

One of my favorite states of all time...Hawaii! When I first heard of the Honolulu Marathon, there were a few things that drew me in: 1) a marathon in paradise and 2) no time limit! (A back-of-packer like me needs all the time she can get.) The Honolulu Marathon is in December, which is a …

Race Recap: Rock n Roll Denver Half Marathon 2018

This is my third time running the Rock n Roll Denver half marathon. However, this was the first time I didn't live a block away from the start line! Over the weekend, I received a lovely nuun shipment! I added a few extra flavors to my standards: watermelon and tropical fruit. Together, they taste like …

Race Recap: Rock n Roll Savannah Half Marathon 2018

I had been wanting to run Rock n Roll Savannah since 2012. It was one of the first races I registered for when I bought my first tour pass. My goal was always to run the full marathon, but I came up very short on training time. My longest run had been 17 miles on …

Race Recap: Rock n Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon 2018

Las Vegas is a fun city. It is more fun in November when you get to run on the Las Vegas Strip in the evening! I've generally had a pretty good time at this race in the past, but the day before the race I came down with a cold. It was such bad timing …

Race Recap: Hot Chocolate 15K Denver 2018

This was single-handly one of the most fun races I've done...ever! The Hot Chocolate series is a multi-city race circuit that includes 5K and 15K distances. I wish they actually went up to the half marathon distance, but I can see how these distances actually make the race more approachable and fun. My husband was …

Race Recap: Rock n Roll San Antonio Half Marathon 2018

I’ve ran a few races in Texas, but this was probably the first one that actually went well! Because of my previous trips, I didn’t go in expecting much, and I left the race really happy with everything. It was a big change from my previous performances in Texas! It was a quick turnaround trip. …

Desert’s Edge Make-up Sprint Tri 2018

I had a DNS (did not start) earlier this season for a sprint triathlon. This was already a downgrade from the half ironman for which I was training. There were a lot of things out of my control that required that I pull out of the event, and the race director was nice enough to …

Race Recap: Rock n Roll Montreal Half Marathon 2018

There is something so special about international races. Perhaps it's because I'm out of my element, or because some of the street signs are in a foreign language. It's just far enough away from home to make it feel special again. This race took me to...Canada! The journey to Canada took about six hours from …
