2013 Race Schedule

8 Jan


(Pic from Laurel Run Park)

Just want to put this in writing – then maybe I’ll do it. 🙂 Found these races on both runtricities.org and http://www.trailrunnermag.com/. Some of these links are race entry forms if you’re in the area . . . bet you’ll beat me!

4/6 Power to the Tower Trail Run 21k (I really want to do the 50k but I don’t know that I can build up that much mileage that quickly given how stupid sick I’ve been)

4/20 Laurel Run Ascent 11 mile (Totally my favorite run from last year — crazy 5.5 mi uphill then the same down — though if it’s like the other trail races i’ve run, 11 miles is an estimate. most are off by .5-1 mile!)

7/7 Harbison Half Marathon Trail (Columbia, SC – this one depends on a lot. like am i really going to travel to SC for a race? I bet it will be hot hot hot — seriously, July in SC. What am I thinking? my sister lives there though so childcare is built in . . . )

7/16 Wolf Run 7 mile (missed this one last year due to vacation; I heard mixed reviews)

8/31 Iron Mountain 30M (missed this one last year. long story)

9/14 Bays Mt Trail Race 15 mile (missed this one last year)


No more races

12 Aug

Ran a 10k last night. I so wanted to run a sub 1 hour 10k. It’s so possible but for some reason I CAN”T DO IT and it’s taking the fun out of running that I fail at goals. So, for now, other than the Iron Mountain 16 miler on Sept 1, no more races. BTW i fully expect to DNF at the 16 miler. I haven’t been running much – I teach 3 bootcamps a week and 1 pilates and I just HATE HATE HATE running on the treadmill so I was undertrained for a 10k . . . 16 miles is not going to be pretty.

Chasing Snakes 10k

17 Mar

10k the morning! Time last year: 1:05 ave. pace: 10:30
Goal: <;1:00
May the road rise up to meet you!


Edited: I fell apart during this race. and forgot about all the damn hills. Ave pace: 9:56 finish: 1:01:43 which is faster than last year (and I threw up).

Long run

17 Feb

So I signed up for a 10 miler on Sat 2/25. Haven’t done double digits since, oh, Sept.

Today: 7.1 1:20! YEA! Admittedly walked some but I was on a treadmill. But yea I did it!

Happy Friday, y’all!
