Moonlight Run 10km

Saturday, March 17th, 2018

Lethbridge, Alberta

My first race of 2018 and I’d say my first big race postpartum. Our long winter made for interesting conditions, but I fought hard and managed a 47:13! This was good enough to get 3rd in the 30-34 age group. I was 3/28 in age group, 11/188 gender and 45/377 overall.

Close to 5 months postpartum!

Kodiak 10/4 Road Race

Saturday, April 7th, 2018

Lethbridge, Alberta

In the latest edition of “The Never Ending Winter” I chose to run the 10 mile road race. My goal with sub 1:20 (8:00 min/mi pace) and I was very close with a 1:20.39. With the small turnout due to weather, I snagged 2/5 in the 30-39 Age Group, 2/16 Female and 10/38 overall! The $50 gift certificate I earned will go towards a new pair of shoes for Berlin Marathon training!

Star Wars 10km & Half Marathon

Saturday, April 21st & Sunday, April 22nd

Walt Disney World, Florida

Double race weekend and I went out with big goals. Exceeded my 10km goal with a finish time of 44:58. This was good enough for 2/940 in 30-34, 10/6005 women and 70/10925 overall. In the half, I was a bit slower than my goal (probably due to pushing hard the day before and also the humidity) but still ran a 1:50.35. I was 16/1447 in division, 67/8153 gender and 437/15100 overall. I earned the Kessel Run medal for doing the Virtual Half and also earned the Dark Order Challenge medal.

Woody’s RV Red Deer Half Marathon

Sunday, May 20th, 2018

Red Deer, AB

Set out a lofty goal back in January to run this race in the 1:40s. Had some trouble midway through with my calves still feeling super tight and not wanting to move. Had a second wind the last 5km of the race and was able to finish strong with a 1:42.28, which happens to be my second best race time at this event (the year I went to Boston I even ran 4 minutes slower than this!). Finished 55/446 overall, 7/88 in age group of 30-34 and 14/240 females.
