Race recap: Labor Day 10K 2022

It has been a blazing hot summer in Colorado. Labor Day weekend was no exception! There were 3 distances available: half marathon, 10K, and 5K. The 10K started right when it was just cool enough but on the brink of heating up. Thankfully I dressed to what the weather would have been at my anticipated … Continue reading Race recap: Labor Day 10K 2022

Race Recap: Seaside Half Marathon 2022

Seaside was my 54th lifetime half marathon. I don't think you can ever really go wrong with a race on/near a beach, especially in California when the weather is so consistent year round. Something I need to remember, though, is that a race on the beach always starts off VERY cold. Bring a windbreaker or … Continue reading Race Recap: Seaside Half Marathon 2022

Race Recap: Surf City Half Marathon 2022

Surf City was my 53rd lifetime half marathon. This race came on the heels of my first 50K, which was an incredible experience. After that, I felt a little lost and wasn't sure what kind of goals to set or what to focus on. This is mainly because I am starting IVF up again, which … Continue reading Race Recap: Surf City Half Marathon 2022

Race Recap: Go Short, Go Long, Go Very Long 50K 2022

This was my very first 50K! And I finished standing upright! This was supposed to be my last big hurrah before restarting the IVF process again. I am so happy I did this race and am so happy with my performance. This was about as close to a perfect race as it comes. This never … Continue reading Race Recap: Go Short, Go Long, Go Very Long 50K 2022

Race recap: Seattle Marathon 2021

This was my first marathon back since Honolulu 2018! Marathons are very intimidating. My shorter Dopey training runs have been mostly okay. The longer ones have not gone very smoothly but I've gotten my miles in. Seattle has been much colder than Colorado or New Mexico, so I was a little worried about the weather … Continue reading Race recap: Seattle Marathon 2021

Race recap: Rock n Roll San Diego Half Marathon 2021

This was my first "real" race in awhile, and my first Rock n Roll race since Las Vegas 2019. I know that I had completed a few other races towards the beginning of my Dopey training journey, but I didn't take them all too seriously. The data points didn't mean as much since I was … Continue reading Race recap: Rock n Roll San Diego Half Marathon 2021

Race recap: Hot Chocolate Denver 15K 2021

Hot Chocolate races are one of my favorite race circuits around...that's why I'm a race ambassador for them. I run a LOT of races (as you can see from my blog) and they are superior in almost every way. Where else will you get all of these things included with registration?
