RACE #165: Howloween Half Marathon

[CLICK HERE FOR MY SOJO HALF RACE REPORT] After getting home from the SoJo Half I had an agenda — get some food and take a nap. Unfortunately, I only succeeded in one of those two. I didn’t get the nap I wanted. But, after some steak and eggs I was pretty much good to go for my second race. This was the second time that I’ve done the Howloween Half. The last time it…

I am soooooo close to my goal …

Wow. After this past weekend’s race — I realized that I am only 19 races away from my goal! NINETEEN! I’m in the TEENS! Time flies so fast. It’s hard to believe that I’ve been doing this now for over six years. But, it’s also hard to believe that I am reaching this 10 year goal — three years early! Who would have thought? Who would have imagined the experiences I’ve had, races I’ve run…

Look I’m an Ambassador!

I’m kind of excited. Well, actually … REALLY, REALLY, REALLY … excited. I got word yesterday that I was named one of seven ambassadors for the Extra Mile Racing company here in Utah.

Fartlek Friday XLV: This is (unfortunately) Halloween

I am not going to lie, I am going to hate seeing October come to an end. It’s been a fun and eventful month. I’ve ran the St. George Marathon, paced the Pink Series Half in Park City, swept both Haunted Half races in SLC and Provo and the Howloween Half last weekend after running the Provo Haunted Half earlier in the morning. It’s really been a fun month of running. And, now it’s over….

I did it! I did it! Two Half Marathons in one day!

I love these little challenges. Back in July, I ran back-to-back half marathons that I dubbed an “All-Night Marathon.” I am not sure if there’s really a special name you would call this feat? Maybe, stupid? lol … okay, no. But, close. I ended up running the Haunted Half in Provo in the morning and then the Howloween Half Marathon back in Provo later that night. There was about a five hour rest period between races…
