Jeff Galloway 13.1 Half Marathon & Barb’s 5k
Atlanta, GA 12/12/15 & 12/13/15
I ran the 5k on Saturday and “raced’ the half on Sunday. Warm and humid, and hilly, plus coming off a cold earlier in the week meant a pretty ugly race. My time was 1:43:17.
Arlington Turkey Trot
Arlington, TX 11/26/15
Our holiday tradition! We always find a turkey trot to do, this was a flat but warm race. I was 7th woman and first in my age group. Couldn’t quite break 21 minutes, made it in 21:13.

Big Cottonwood Half Marathon
Salt Lake City, UT 5/9/2015
3000 feet of descent over 13.1 miles! Blew away my half marathon PR, in 1:27:09. The downhills really beat up my legs the couple days after, but it was worth it. 8th woman overall and 1st in my age group.
Lake Monona 20k
Madison, WI 5/2/2015
A great local race, very challenging hilly and scenic course. It’s always my birthday weekend, it seems. I was about 40 seconds slower than last year, at 1:29:36. 2nd place in my age group, the woman who beat me by 6 seconds this year, also beat me by 5 seconds last year!

Cottontail Classic 10k
Madison, WI 4/4/2015
Couldn’t resist a local bunny-themed Easter race! I did not eat chocolate or peeps mid-race, although they were offered. I ran a 40:27, which placed me 2nd overall and 1st woman. I should mention, Jackie Hering, local pro-triathlete and winner of the Ironman Wisconsin, ran the first 5 miles with me (at an easy pace for her!) and took pity on me in the end. 🙂
Lost Pines Trail Half Marathon
Bastrop, TX 3/7/2015
