Race Recap: Louisiana Half Marathon 2019

This race recap was a long time coming! My schedule has been completely swamped and I haven't had the time to update my blog. But, better late than never. The Louisiana Marathon and half were incredible. You MUST MUST MUST do this race if you are looking to complete the 50 states challenge. The people …

Training Recap: Week 6+7+8+9 Escape from Alcatraz

I just wrapped up month 2 of my 5-month training plan. Something that I am learning is that following a training plan is becoming very difficult for me! I've been incorporating a lot of Orangetheory into my routine -- about 3-4 sessions a week, at the expense of my running training, but what has been …

Training Recap: Week 1+2 Escape from Alcatraz

I've been wanting to race in the Escape from Alcatraz triathlon for years. I think I learned about it during my first year of training for a triathlon. When I researched bucket list races, this came up as one of the top contenders. As soon as I went to the website to register for it, …

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. …

Another DNS, A Run Streak…And Ramping Up for Honolulu

A few days after my last post, there was a sudden change in plans. We ended up not making it to the start line at the Rocking Chocolate Half Marathon, and I never made it to the start line for the Desert's Edge Sprint Triathlon either. That makes two triathlon DNSs (did not start) this …

My Birthday Wish, My Team on TV, Compromise, And More…

So far I've totally failed at my resolution to run twice this week before the long run. I aimed to run last night, and again this morning, and again during the day...and it didn't happen. Going to aim to run at least a few miles tomorrow before my internship and to run again on Friday …
