So it’s been April since I added a post to this site. That is crazy, and I am a little embarrassed that it has been that long.
I have been busy making 2016 EPIC, a year that I won’t forget, ever.
In April I busy preparing for the Lincoln, NE Half Marathon, a Bucket List race for me because I could finish on the 50 yard line of Memorial Stadium. I had a blast, not just because I ran in Lincoln, I was able to meet many members of the local RWB teams and made some new friends. This was also a PR for me, finishing in less that 2.5 hours.
I last talked about considering taking on 50k or 50 miles, wondering if I had lost my mind. I ran that event, the Eagle Up Ultra in Canal Fulton, OH. I completed the 50 mile distance, it was hard but I DID IT!!
9 days later I ran a PR at the 5k distance on the 4th of July. What?!?!
I also ran Ragnar Great River with a new team. Ran the Ragnar leg, double medal for me.
I ran the NewBo 10k this year, instead of the half only because it was 6 days before my second marathon. Running a small event Apple Dumpling Day Races, with a friend who would be completing her first marathon.
Five weeks later, I ran the Des Moines IMT Marathon, it was hot, humid & hilly. Once again, I got it done.
I have one more marathon left, more on that later, it’s special.
I am also in the beginning stages of planning what to run in 2017. I am not sure how on earth anything can be more EPIC that 2016…..
