Hypothermic Half-Lethbridge, AB
Saturday, March 2nd, 2013
An 11 mile race down in the coulees. 1:36:43. Good solid start to the year, especially considering that I had been sick the past week!
Trailbreaker Half Marathon-Waukesha, WI
Saturday, April 6th, 2013
Got to run back in Wisconsin while home for Easter. Low elevation is my friend, because I got my PR of 1:52:53!!! That broke my previous best of 1:54:19 and the was from May 2010!
Ten Mile Road Race-Lethbridge, AB
Saturday, April 13th, 2013
The weather couldn’t have been any more perfect! Even with the ridiculous hill climb put of the river bottom, I felt strong throughout the whole race. Finished 2nd place in my division, female 20-29, with a time of 1:23:14.
Medicine Hat College Rattler Run-Medicine Hat, AB
Saturday, April 27th, 2013
Super windy day!! A race held at Medicine Hat College that features a 3, 5, and 10km. The weather was also unseasonably warm—72 degrees according to my car! I ran my PR in a 10km with 48:38:05! Got 1st in my age group of 26-35. Fantastic day!
Saturday, May 11th, 2013
First ever obstacle race! 4.9 miles of woods, mountains, hills, obstacles, burpees and mud! Finished in 1:50:06. Definitely sore today!
Woody’s RV Red Deer Half Marathon-Red Deer, AB
Sunday, May 19th, 2013
A new PR! And I didn’t just break it….I demolished it! My previous best was when my fuel was cheese and beer during the Trailbreaker Half in Wisconsin. I finished this race strong with a 1:47:22!!!!!
Scotiabank Calgary Marathon-Centaur Subaru Half Marathon-Calgary, AB
Sunday, May 26th, 2013
My first ever back-back half marathon race weekends…1:54:22. Lets say it could have gone worse! Happy I finished strong and I love the newly acquired bling!
Coulee Cactus Crawl 20 Miler-Lethbridge, AB
Saturday, June 1st, 2013
My first ever trail race. Ended up being 21.5 miles, about 35 km. Hardest race I have ever run! Great experience! 4:56:32
Millarville “Run to the Farmer’s Market” Half Marathon-Millarville, AB
Saturday, June 15th, 2013
Started off the first mile way to fast, then my mind started playing games with me. Got my act together on the last 6 miles and finished strong with 1:52:10!
Spartan Sprint-Calgary, AB
Sunday, August 18th, 2013
Did this race with the hubby! A 5km distance, which was appreciated as my body was still in vacation mode…had gotten back from a 16 day trip two days prior! 54:04 was my official time for this obstacle course 5km!
Edmonton Half Marathon-Edmonton, AB
Sunday, August 25th, 2013
First big race since my septoplasty and it went well! Maybe going to the Edmonton Mall waterpark the day before hindered me a bit, but my 1:51:58 finish on this fast and flat course is my current second personal best time!
Spartan Race Super Spartan-Red Deer, AB
Saturday, September 7th, 2013
What an awesome race weekend. This Super Spartan distance was more my cup of tea than the shorter ones we did earlier this year. 13 km long, finished in 1:27:46, and was most proud of the fact that I was able to do the monkey bars!
Lethbridge Regional Police Services Half Marathon for Special Olympics-Lethbridge, AB
Saturday, September 14th, 2013
The conditions were in my favour—cool morning, no major uphill climbs, a steep hill down to the river bottom near dreaded mile 9-10, and my home turf…this all helped me make a new PR of 1:46:42!
Spartan Race Beast-Sun Peaks, BC
Saturday, September 28th, 2013
What a race! The weather was cold, rainy and snowy…take that and the elevation plus obstacles and we had a hell of a time! 3:33:28 later, and my first Spartan Beast was complete!
Spartan Race Sprint-Sun Peaks, BC
Sunday, September 29th, 2013.
Waking up to do the 5km after doing the Beast the day before was tough. And it turned out this 5km was actually closer to 7km+! 1:32:14 was what it took!
Grizzly Ultra Marathon & Relay
Sunday, October 13th, 2013
I was out for a killing today, and am super proud of my showing as the Leg 1 runner! At about 9 miles (14km) in length, leg 1 was the longest of the five relay legs, which totaled 50km. I ran in a 1:13:20, and completely surprised myself! I will have our official relay time later, but it was around 6:10. Such a great race, great experience, and great confidence booster.
Bare Bones Run Half Marathon-Lethbridge, AB
Sunday, October 20, 2013. 9:00 am
Holy crap. I did not expect to make a MAJOR PR at this race. With the huge hill up to Scenic drive that encompasses 3/4 of a mile and the winding of the river bottom, I didn’t think it was achievable. I had a lady to pace off of and just had Disney Corral placement on my mind. I rocked out a 1:41:07 and finished 2nd for women overall! I think I can get in the 1:40s if I am on a flat course for sure!
University of Lethbridge Pre-Med Club “Hoof It” Run-Lethbridge, AB
Saturday, October 26th, 2013
A small race put on by the Pre-Med Club at the University….I went out with not sure what to expect. There was a 5km race too, but only 18 in the 10km! A warm October morning brought some challenges, but not as much as the hill at the end! I ended with a personal best 10km time of 46:32!
Walt Disney World Wine & Dine Half Marathon-Orlando, FL
Saturday, November 9th, 2013
A fantastic RunDisney “Runner’s Night Out”race experience”. As a Disney parks fan since 1991, this first RunDisney race will always be special. Got a solid 1:44:33 and am so pleased. It was fantastic…..every last part. What I could say right here does not say enough…..read my posts!
Runners Soul Claus Cause 10km
Saturday, November 16th, 2013
I guess local Lethbridge races are where it is at for me…..perfect weather (30 degree Fahrenheit), overcast, no hills, river bottom trails I have ran numerous times before…this all added up to be my fastest 10km to date! I ran a 45:37! I placed 1st overall out of 55 female runners! I can’t believe how much time I have dropped over the past year+….last August my PR in a 10km was 50:26!
Santa Shuffle 5km-Lethbridge, AB
Saturday, December 7, 2013
Not a chipped time event, just a 5 km fun run….and thank god. It was -18 degrees Fahrenheit in the AM and I looked ridiculous. My eyelashes were almost frozen shut, and I am not joking!
Brita Resolution 5km Run-Lethbridge, AB
Tuesday, December 31st, 2013. 6:00 pm
a 5 km fun run put on nationwide by Running Room. Ran in 15 degree Fahrenheit weather with my good friend Kelly. A fun way to start our New Years Eve!
