Race

Rock the Bay sprint triathlon

Did my annual multisport event to maintain triathlete status. Up to this point, I had not swam since the last triathlon, biked a total of about 20 miles in the last 6 months, and have only done treadmill running as part of Orange Theory workouts a few times per week since January. This was to … Continue reading »

Spring Sprint Triathlon

Decided to try to do at least one race per year, preferable a triathlon, most preferably a short one. Two weeks prior to race race day, a stomach bug hit, which was followed up with a head and chest cold (that was not quite over for the event) for the week before, requiring amoxicillin and … Continue reading »

Raptor Ridge 1/2 marathon (again)

I would say I was just recovering from the Stairway to Heaven when this race rolled around, so I tried to be reasonable about goals. Then it was raining on race day. So, I was pretty happy that I was able to negative split the course and come in just under two hours.  There’s not … Continue reading »

Stairway to Heaven 1/2 Marathon

Still high from my win at the Solana Beach duathlon, I was fairly optimistic about this daunting half marathon. There are a lot of very steep hills on this course and the course record is 1:49 and change.  If you know anything about half marathons, then you know that is not a particularly fast time, … Continue reading »

Solana Beach Duathlon

I wanted to be sure that I got a multi-sport event in this year, and since it has been more than 2 years since I’ve done any swimming, a duathlon seemed like the smart choice.  Also, not wanting to have to travel to race, just about the only option was the Solana Beach sprint duathlon … Continue reading »

Wild Horse half marathon

No excuses this time! I felt (and was) prepared for this race and it went very well! The weather stayed relatively cool and it was overcast the entire time I was running, so that was an added benefit. In typical fashion, I did start out too fast, but was able to dial it back a … Continue reading »

Foxy half marathon (again)

Apparently this site is running the risk of turning  into the excuse-blog, but here goes anyway. Food poisoning a week before the race really set me back.  I had done a long run that previous Sunday, then ate something bad for brunch and was laid up in bed most of the week.  It wasn’t until the … Continue reading »

SD50 Trail Marathon

I’ve been slow to post this one because there are no pictures from the event. Frowny face! Also, I’m not that pumped about the race.   It was fine and all and I did probably slightly better than I thought I would, but this was the race that was supposed to be a 50 miler … Continue reading »

Lake Hodges 50K

I’ve been procrastinating about posting this one and it seems like it’s never going to happen the way I want with the detail I usually try to put in, so here’s a rough draft of the race: HR a bit high in the morning. Intestinal distress the previous night.  16 miles in, was ready to … Continue reading »

Raptor Ridge 1/2 marathon

After the NYC Marathon, I took quite a bit of time off to recover and then ease back into running. With the birth of my son in March, competition has definitely taken a back seat (and I’m fine with that). But, I still have the SD50 on my radar and am entered into the race … Continue reading »
