2024 Races

Green Bay half marathon
Green Bay, WI – 5/19/24

My 100th half marathon! It turned out to a be a pretty nice day, a little warm but otherwise good. I had the perfect Packers outfit (with cheesehead!).  Ran a 1:47:45.

Prairie Fire half marathon
Wichita, Kansas – 5/5/24

A bucket list race for me, and my 99th half marathon.  I had a “Sparky” outfit to match the race logo.  It was a good day for running, and I ran a 1:47:04.

London Marathon
London, England – 4/21/24

My first international marathon and fourth of the World Marathon Majors. I ran as Crowley from Good Omens. It was quite an experience, but I did have a rough last few miles.  My time was 4:12:51.

Cottontail Classic 10k
Madison, WI – 3/30/24

Always one of my favorites. I ran as a chocolate bunny with a bite out of it. Always a hilly and challenging race. I ran 46:53, 3rd woman overall.

Luck of the Irish 10k
Milwaukee, WI – 3/17/24

Last of the Winter Series races, it was very windy and cold. Right by Lake Michigan. I wore my pot of gold outfit, and ran 47:05.

Sand Hollow half marathon
Hurricane, UT- 3/9/24

Fun local race in Southern Utah, where I was visiting my mom. I ran a bit faster than last year, 1:44:33, and was first in my age group.

Cupid Shuffle 10k
Milwaukee, WI – 2/11/24

Part of the local winter run series, I wore my valentines outfit. I was 4th overall woman, 46:15.

Run Aruba half marathon
Aruba – 1/29/24

On a running vacation with Marathon Expeditions, did a half marathon along the beach and up to the lighthouse (twice!). It was hot, humid and windy, but still a lot of fun.  I wore my Ariel mermaid outfit that I had planned to use at Disneyland before I got sick.

Disney World Dopey Challenge (5k/10k/half/full)
Disney World, FL – 1/4-7/24

Second year in a row to do the Dopey Challenge. Walked/ran the 5k with my two granddaughters and their parents, as characters from Inside Out.  I was Chip with plush Dale for Suellen for the 10k, Beaker for the half (which was shortened to 7 miles due to storms), and a combo Mickey/Minnie Mouse outfit for the full.  I ran as Mickey the first half and Minnie for the second half.  I got to ride two roller coasters during the marathon, and bought a Mickey brownie at mile 25. I took a bite crossing the finish 🙂 

 New Years Day Dash 5 miler
Madison, WI – 1/1/24

Actually had good weather for this race this year, not below zero. I ran in our “new year, new ewe” sheep outfit.
