My friend Jenn over at RunninMyMouth.com and I run a LOT of races together every year. I’m not an especially good runner, or a fast runner, but I do it anyway. Here I will update my results each time I complete a run. You can see an up-to-date list of my upcoming runs off to the right in the sidebar.
Our race calendars start in the fall and end in the summer. Race events are displayed in descending order.
3/17/12 – Kiss Me I’m Irish!
I felt pretty good during this run, but poor Jenn had cracked ribs and STILL ran it!
3/4/12 – Petco 5k9 (Run Walk Wag)
The dogs loved this run! Maybe we should run with them more often…
Distance: 5k (3.12 miles)
1/15/12 – PF Chang’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon (Half)
This was my first ever half marathon, and it was a bit rough. We trained for a few months before (we kind of trailed off in December) but my knee wasn’t prepared and gave out at mile 4. BOO. I pretty much limped a run-walk-run from there to the end. BUT, it was still cool to be able to say I did it!
Distance: 13.1 miles (Half Marathon)
10/8/11 – Frank Kush Das Foot Race
After running this run in terrible heat in 2010, we almost didn’t run this one again. However, the weather was much cooler – I was even a little chilly! I almost bit it just a minute into the run when a kid stepped on the back of my foot and tripped me up. Faceplanting would have sucked, but I managed to recover and not get trampled. And, while it wasn’t much of an improvement, we did beat the previous year’s time of 1:06:04!
Distance: 5 miles
9/24/11 – Dirty 6 Mud Run
This was my first ever obstacle-style run and it is run as a team, the point of which is to encourage each other along the way and help each other finish. It was pretty hot, but it was a good time until I started having knee problems at the end. I barely crossed the finish line, and was of course last, for our team Cirque de Sore Legs. Despite that though, it definitely fostered a desire to do more mud runs!
Distance: 6 Miles
