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 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!

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 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 …
