Out with the Old 10k
Las Vegas, NV – 12/18/21

We were in Vegas so we had to find a race! This one used recycled bibs and medals from previous races, so we had running skirts and tops we made from recycled race shirts.  It was a perfect morning, I ran a 45:14 (slightly short course) and was first woman overall.

Key West Duathlon
Key West, FL – 12/4/21

A trip down to warmer weather in the south! It was a beautiful morning for running and biking. It was a 1 mile run, 10 mile bike and 5k run. I finished in 1:03:36, and second overall woman.

Pumpkin Pie 10k
Denver, CO – 11/20/21

Was visiting family in Colorado, so we had to do a turkey trot! We dressed in our finest pumpkin pie themed outfits.  I ran 47:02, and was first in my age group.


Madison Half Marathon
Madison, WI – 11/14/21

Ran just for fun, it was a cold and windy day but not as bad as predicted. I ran in my Glinda the Good Witch outfit, complete with bubble gun. The bubbles worked  all the way to the finish! Final time, 1:49:37.

Door County Half Marathon
Peninsula State Park, WI – 10/30/21

Beautiful race on the door county peninsula, fall colors and great weather.  I ran a 1:45:23, which I was quite happy with.

Grand Canyon Rim 2 Rim
Grand Canyon, AZ – 10/11/21

Not a race, but an epic day nonetheless. I ran from the north rim of the Grand Canyon, down to the Colorado River, and then hiked up the other side to the south rim.  25 miles and it took about 6 and a half hours moving time (8-9 hours with stops and photos).  An amazing experience.

Ziegler Wine 5k

It was my wife’s 65th birthday and I ran/walked the 5K with her and then we had wine!

Ironman 70.3 World Championships
St George, Utah – 9/18/21

Just a crazy race. Rain, wind, hail, and then some heat on the run. And hills. Lots of hills. I’d trained a long time for this one, and it blew up pretty spectacularly on the run.  Ended up walking a good portion of the last 10 miles, and had the longest half iron time of my career, 6:25:22. I did get to high five my mom as I ran down the finish chute and she was cheering me.

Sputnikfest 5k

Fun little 5k I ran with my wife. We wore Jane and Judy Jetson costumes to be part of the space theme.
