Prairie Dog 10k Race Report

When I found out I was pregnant with Sweet Pea in June 2011, my first thought was “Yay!” My second thought was, “Shit, this is not going to be the summer I break 47 minutes in the 10k.” I was right. I spent that summer being bloated and nauseated as a little human began to […]

Race Report: Wobble Gobble 5k

The morning started like any other race morning, with two packets; a square packet of Quaker Instant Oatmeal and a rectangular, tube-like packet of Starbucks Via. Unlike a usual morning, I Instagrammed my breakfast. I spent a moment wondering if I was a loser or a cliche or both because really? Choosing a cool filter […]

Race Report: RBVFC Firefightin’ 5k

Summer vacation is for drinking homemade sangria in a red Solo cup on the beach, going out for Soft Serve while the sky turns pink, building epic sandcastles, jumping waves, happy hour on the third floor deck, and racing at sea level. My family (including my parents, my sister, her family, and one of my cousins and her […]

Race Report: 2016 Longmont Outdoor Divas Sprint Triathlon

Overheard at the Outdoor Divas Sprint Triathlon this Sunday… I found the best kombucha bar in the Highlands. Putting on a wetsuit is like putting on a wedding dress. You’re like “Please, zip! Please, zip!” All she ate was sandwiches and mac and cheese, for, like, every meal.   I can’t help noticing these things, I’m a chronic […]

Race Report: 2015 Newman YMCA Turkey Run 5k

I ran the Newman YMCA Turkey Run 5k on Thanksgiving day in Seekonk, MA. It was my first race after I spent the better part of this year injured and unable to commit to any running beyond a 30 minute run-walk. I have felt really crazy over the past few weeks, mainly due to normal […]

Race Report: Ralston Creek 5k

Sunday morning I ran the Ralston Creek 5k. I was originally signed up for the half marathon, but I had to take a break from running, starting just after Thanksgiving because of an injury. I finally got back to running just about six weeks before race day. I entertained the idea of gutting out an entire […]

Race Report: Panicking Poultry 5k 2014

My goal for the Panicking Poultry was simply to run faster than I did at the last 5k I did. Considering how horrible I felt and how hot it was for the last one, I knew that unless many things were to go wrong, I was almost guaranteed to have a better race. And if […]

Race Report: Aetna Park to Park 10 Miler 2013

If your idea of the perfect late summer morning is running ten meandering miles through the parks and tree lined neighborhoods of Denver, empty of cars, devoid of off-leash dogs, in the company of hundreds of other runners, then we should be best friends. Or running partners at the very least. Because I can think […]

Race Report: Arnold Mills Four Miler

I put this race on my calendar because… well, why not run a race at sea level? The Arnold Mills Four Miler takes place in the small town of Cumberland, Rhode Island every fourth of July. It’s simple, it’s well run, and it’s close enough to my parents’ house, where I was visiting. I ran […]

Race Report: Urban 10 Miler

I was at a party the night before this race and I met some women who told me they got into running recently because bike racing was starting to be too much pressure. So we got to chatting and I mentioned I had this race the next day and they were asking me about the […]
