It’s actually been a week and a half since I ran this race but unfortunately I’m a little delayed with the race review! This race was one I had actually forgotten that I had signed up to, until I received the bib in the mail (thank gosh they mailed it out). Since I’m training for Honolulu, … More Running around the lake (Lake Macquarie Half Marathon Recap)
I entered the Gold Coast Half Marathon exactly 4 days after I returned from the US back in January. I blame the Dopey dredge but for some reason I decided to go after a Half PR – I knew I was better than my 2:54 previous best and naturally I didn’t beat it at either … More Gold Coast Half, achievement unlocked! (Race Recap)
I can’t believe I’m staring down my goal race, especially since I signed up a couple of days after I back from the January trip – July seemed so far away. Enlisting in the help of Sweat Tracker – they’ve made me a far more confident (and faster) runner – was by far the best … More The goal race approaches!!!
I must say, this weekend felt like the first race of 2016, although it’s completely not the case. With two half marathons in the same number of weeks, I can say IT’S SHOWTIME!!! I had sought out the help of Sweat Tracker to get my coaching right – so I was incredibly prepared on a training … More Bay to Bay to PR! (Race Recap)
Sitting here on Half Marathon eve I’ve got all these crazy thoughts running through my head. While my training has been relatively solid (with the exclusion of a wild weather weekend), doubt still creeps in. This morning I moved the legs over with the weekly run at parkrun, and felt really good – putting in … More Thoughts on Half Marathon Eve
I’ve gone and done it again. I’ve signed up for another race. This time in New Zealand. It was a wild and wet weekend, in fact so bad that everyone was advised to stay indoors and if you did go out, you really wouldn’t have gotten very far – we were all flooded in. So … More Auckland Half Marathon, I’m coming for you!!!
What an amazing weekend! The weather took a dramatic turn towards cold this week, which means it’s prime running weather. With 3 weeks until my first half marathon since January (and back from injury) and 5 weeks until my goal half (hoping for a big PR at that one) I went into this week’s 19k … More Battling the 19k
What’s one way to celebrate hitting a milestone race or crossing that must-have event off your bucket-list? Running for charity of course! For my first half I was able to connect with local charity The Cancer Council and hit a $350 goal. When I decided to run the marathon, I wanted to do something bigger and … More Why running for charity rocks!!
It may be almost mid-March but I’m getting my 2016 goals aligned and ready to roll out! I feel that the end of 2015 was geared so much towards January, that it left me with a little void once I was done. So what’s next? A little while ago I announced that I was running … More Goal setting: 2016 edition
So part 2 brings us up to the Half Marathon.. after 2 early mornings we came to the business end of the weekend. The big races! Half Marathon (AKA: All right, this is wearing thin & it’s foggy) – So this one I was going solo, which meant trying to not disrupt all … More The mammoth WDW Marathon Weekend recap – Part 2
