2016 Races

What a year of racing it has been! I honestly cannot believe I picked up running a little over four years ago. AND LOOK WHERE IT HAS TAKEN ME! Not only have I been able to see some amazing places (this year had me running from Seattle to Big Sur, Vancouver to Vegas, Napa to Utah and all over Southern California), I have met some of the coolest cats around... many of which I am honored to call FRIENDS! I am BEYOND BLESSED to have found something I LOVE to do and hope I am able to do it for many, many, MANY years to come! [PS If you missed any of the recaps, feel free to click the name of the race below and it will link you directly to the post.]

February 7th - Cardiff Kook 10K

February 14th - Los Angeles Marathon

February 27th - Phoenix Marathon

April 1st-2nd - Ultra SoCal Rangar

April 3rd - Carlsbad 5000

August 6th - Balboa Park 8-Miler

September 3rd - Disneyland 10K

September 4th - Disneyland Half Marathon

September 11th - Santa Monica Classic 10K

October 2nd - St. George Marathon

I ran two 5Ks, five 10Ks, one 8-miler, ten Half Marathons, four Full Marathons and one ultra relay race. Not only did I run a Boston Qualifying marathon time (a HUGE PR), but I also PR'ed my 10K and Half Marathon distances! This was an AMAZING racing year for me (even if it is ending on a painful note)! Here's to 2017 being just as FANTASTIC! 

How'd racing go for YOU in 2016?

Congrats on all of your accomplishments - especially the BQ! Here's hoping for helpful info when you visit the doctor that will make this upcoming year a healthy one!
