Let’s Recap…


My first six months of blogging is in the books! It has been a success! I’ve learned lots of great information and I like almost all of you (that was a joke).

Here is a recap of the first half of the year:

January 2014

Chilly Chili 5k

Chilly Chili 5k

The temperature was in the single digits for the Chilly Chili 5k and the wind chill was well-below zero. As an added bonus, the roads were covered in snow. I managed to run 18:02 and that was good for 4th place.

February 2014

Lake Effect Half Marathon

The Lake Effect Half Marathon was held on a beautiful day. I got to meet fellow bloggers Hollie, Laura and Heather. I ran 1:15:55 – a half marathon personal best!

March 2014

Tipp Hill Shamrock Run

The Shamrock Run has always been a tough race for me. This year was no different – I think this pretty much sums it up:

April 2014

Dar 10K

The Dar 10K was held on a frigid day at the end of April. I came in 1st and this is how I felt:

May 2014

The Mountain Goat is always one of my favorites. This year I somehow managed to run 57:21!!

In June, I finished my first 50-miler.

Running 50 miles is a pretty great feeling…

Until you wake up the next day…

Anyhow, that’s it!

    Um WOW that first half of your year was incredible! I had some great things happen (first marathon and PRs YAY!) and then some bad things (tendonitis and now pinched nerves BOO.) I hope your second half of 2014 is just as grand!
