Half marathon number TEN! CHECK. I was really happy about this one. For some reason, the number 10 felt like such a milestone that I really wanted to just enjoy this race and not put any pressure on myself for time goals. This was my second time running the SF half; I had an absolute ball … More San Francisco Half Marathon ’18 race recap
This marathon was unlike any other for me. As I’m sitting down and writing out the details, it’s a bit hard this time to recall the race since it all just kind of flew by. I usually have a dramatic story to tell, complete with overcoming “hitting the wall” and learning approximately 15 life lesson … More California International Marathon race recap
This race completely exceeded my expectations, and I think it’s because I entered it having zero. I signed up for the race 5 days before as a way to liven up my usual long run, and also to hopefully get some motivation for the California International Marathon (CIM) in 4 weeks, and boy did it … More Golden Gate Half Marathon race recap
This race was one of my favorites. It was my 8th half marathon in the books, but 1st one outside of NYC (I really venture far for halfs as you can tell 😉 ) and I thought it was such a treat to run my new home city in the biggest race of the year. … More San Francisco Half Marathon race recap
This was a race of many “firsts” for me: 1) first race in California 2) first trail race and 3) first relay race! I signed up with the Golden Gate Running Club with two girls I met during the one training run I attended a few weeks ago (I’ve been delinquent with attendance since, but … More Brazen Dirty Dozen 6-Hour Relay race recap
And just like that, marathon number 4 is complete! Buckle up and get ready for a lengthy post to recap this roller coaster of a race and weekend 🙂 Day before race day: travel + site seeing Friday started off with a road trip to Newport, Rhode Island. 4 hours, a few Kelly Roberts podcasts, and approximately … More Newport Marathon race weekend and recap
My heart is so full. This race was exactly the race I needed for that mid-marathon cycle inspiration. Final time: 1 hr 57 min 37 sec – A NEW PR!!! (previously 1:58.33 from 1.5 years ago). My expectations for this race were somewhat scattered beforehand. It’s the halfway point in my marathon training cycle, so I … More Central Park Half Marathon race recap – new PR!!
This season of fall running all led up to this one race – the NYCRuns Falling Leaves Half Marathon in Flushing Meadows Corona Park! Overall, it was an AWESOME time, and I’m super happy with the race! Day Before Carbo-loading started early. I bought a huge plate of pasta at Harry’s Italian at work – … More Falling Leaves Half Marathon race recap
This was hands down one of the funnest races I’ve ever done! I don’t have my official time yet, but I came in around 4 hours. It’s crazy that this race took almost as long as a marathon, but I definitely felt easier on my body (not to say it wasn’t still super painful!). Day … More Jersey City Triathlon race recap
This past Sunday, I swam for the first time in open water! It was the experience of a lifetime. Everything from being surrounded by beauty, the friendly staff, and an amazing race myself…I am completely hooked on open water swimming 🙂 The morning started at 5am. I set my alarm EXTRA early to be able to take the subway…but … More Coney Island Open Water 2-Miler race recap – 3rd Overall Female!!
