What Happened?

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…..
