I talk A LOT. I mean I am really quiet around some people, but once I am comfortable - brace yourself, I don't shut up! And I write just the same. A LOT. So I'm going to recap my running year as short and to the point as possible! Ha! Right.
First Run 5K - cold. icy. midnight.
Disney's Beauty & the Beast Royal Family 5K - mother/daughter walk. fun!!
Disney's Princess Half Marathon - hot. fun. memorable!
Shamrock 15K Challenge - rain. uphill. hell.
Corvallis Half Marathon - college campus. fabulous sprint to the finish.
Eugene Half Marathon - set a new PR with the help of Pre!
Hippie Chick Quarter Marathon - IT Band pain. good finish.
Seattle Rock'n'Roll Half Marathon - 8 leg injections. KT tape. Compression.
Lacamas Lake Half Marathon - the worst race ever. Hated it.
Disneyland Star Tours 5K - I missed my dear Rose. :(
Disneyland Half Marathon - EPIC. Team Jam was born!
Warrior Dash - I love mud.
Prefontaine Memorial 10K - puked at mile 4. ran awesome.
Portland Half Marathon - tested run/walk method. new PR.
Runaway Pumpkin Half Marathon - boring course. tears. costume.
Las Vegas Rock'n'Roll Half Marathon - awesome course!! pure chaos. collapse.
How's that for short and to the point?
5K = 3
10K = 1
15K = 1
Quarter Marathon = 1
Half Marathon = 9
Mud Run = 1
Next year is a new beginning with 3 races in 3 days. After that the REAL work begins and hopefully I can set myself a few new PRs!
And instead of filling this post with a bunch of photos, I created this little video. Have a looskie poo - you just might find yourself somewhere in there! Thank you all for helping me have such a memorable 2011!!
