2019 Races

Southern Utah Half Marathon
St George, UT – 4/13/2019

Visiting family in St George, and I found this great half marathon. Beautiful scenery down through the red rocks and the Virgin River, downhill (especially the first 3 miles), and fast. The weather was perfect, and I ran very well. Final time 1:37:19, good for 1st women’s masters and 8th overall woman.

Shamrock Shuffle 10k
Madison, WI – 3/16/2019

Definitely a yearly tradition, the local 10k near St Patrick’s Day. We had several people from the company I work for (Fetch Rewards) running, so I had some running shirts made for us. I had a good run, 45:51, first in my age group and 10th woman overall.

Snowshoe Scurry 10k
Madison, WI – 2/3/2019

After a week in the sun, back to cold Wisconsin, where I ran a snowshoe 10k. It was actually 40 degrees, so wore a skirt. I was dressed a penguin, as one does.

Caribbean Running Cruise
1/25/2019 – 2/1/2019

An awesome 7 day cruise through the western Caribbean, on the Royal Caribbean’s Symphony of the Seas. I ran a 5k in Miami, a 5k on the ship, a crazy hilly trail run in Roatan, Honduras, a 10k in Costa Maya, and a 10k in the Bahamas. Lots of sun and running, it was the best.

Disney World Marathon
Orlando, FL 1/13/2019

The final race of the Dopey Challenge! I was pretty sore from running the 10k hard and the half marathon a little harder than I should have, but I just wanted to enjoy the race and get lots of pictures. I think I had 30 photo stops during the race, I hit every official one plus a few more. The best was the stop with Judy Hopps, who matched my costume. She was so excited when she saw me! My final time was 4:20:31.

Disney World Half Marathon
Orlando, FL 1/12/2019

My goal for this and the marathon were to take it easy and do all the character photo stops. I think I ended up with 18-20 photos by the time I was done! My Oswald the Lucky Rabbit costume ran great, and got lots of cheers. I ran a 1:57:26.

Disney World 10k
Orlando, FL 1/11/2019

I raced this one, as Suellen wasn’t feeling well and I couldn’t run it with her. I stopped for 4-5 character photos and still ran a 47:21, good enough to win my age group! I was Minnie Mouse for this race:

Disney World 5k
Orlando, FL 1/10/2019

Walked this with Suellen, just for fun. It was the first race of the Dopey Challenge for me. We wore our Jungle Cruise skipper costumes, which were quite the hit!

Snowshoe Scurry 10k
Verona, WI 1/5/2019

Sadly, no snow, so it was a trail run. I did this as a warmup for the Disney races, and came in 2nd woman overall (it was a pretty small race).L
