Doggie Bones 5K-ish

This past Sunday I ran the Doggie Bones 5K for Nate’s Honor Animal Rescue, or should I say 5K-ish. That was the joke going around before the start of the race. They told us the courses were 5K-ish and 10K-ish. Well “ish” meant almost four miles. According to my Nike+ tracker the race was 3.79…

September Races

September brought two special races for me: Hockeytown 5K and Disneyland Paris Half Marathon. The Hockeytown 5K was the first race and it took place in Detroit, MI on September 10, 2016. When I signed up for this race I planned on using it to check my race pacing for the half marathon. However, I…

The Farewell Season…with a Run!

I don’t think it’s come up on my blog much, but I am a HUGE hockey fan. I grew up just outside of Detroit and spent my youth watching the Detroit Red Wings. This upcoming season in the NHL is there last at Joe Louis Arena, the arena I grew up going to. So when the organization announced a 5K run kicking off the farewell season with the finish line at center ice, I knew I had to sign up.

runDisney’s Virtual Races

runDisney announced their first virtual race series, and I got sucked in. First off, I’m sure many of you are asking what a virtual race is. Well, it’s a race that you get to run on your own time anywhere you want. This means whenever I feel the need to go out and run a…

Run for the Turtles 5K

Yesterday was the Run for the Turtles 5K, on Siesta Key. Between projects at work and commitments in the evening, I had not gone for a run in a really long time, so I figured this race was going to be rough. I ran it with one of my friends who has much longer legs…

Doggie Bones 5K

This morning I ran the Doggie Bones 5K, a fundraiser for Nate’s Honor Animal Rescue where I adopt my pups from. This was the first race of the year for me since I skipped out on Gasparilla. It was also my first 5K of the year, which is important because I want to get my…

2015 Turkey Trot

The tradition continued this year and I started my Thanksgiving with a 5K run over the Ringling bridge at the 2015 ALSO Youth Turkey Trot. This year my boyfriend ran it with me. This year my pace was a bit slower…it certainly didn’t feel that way. We finished in 36:02, which is almost three minutes…

Run for Tidewell Hospice

Yesterday I ran my eighth race of the year, the Run for Tidewell Hospice 5K. It was a nice, small local race that went through a neighborhood I didn’t even know existed. It was also a great temperature to run at, so that made it even better. I hadn’t really been running before this race…

5K SUP & Run

It’s been about a week since I completed the 5K SUP & Run race. Normally I write my recap posts a the day of the race or the day after, but this time I’m took a but longer because I need to digest what I had done. When I signed up to do a race…

SuperHero 5K

This morning I ran the SuperHero 5K to help raise awareness for foster care and adoption in the Sarasota area. There are two words I can use to describe this race for me: hot and unprepared. It had been two weeks since I ran…and those runs were at Orange Theory, so that’s not the same…

Run for the Turtles

Yesterday I ran the Run for the Turtles 5K on Siesta Key Beach. This was my first race on the beach. I’ve only run a couple of times on the beach as it is, so I was excited and nervous to do this race. It was fine running on the sand where it was wet…

Race Against the Clock: Frosty 5K

Yesterday I ran the Frosty 5K in Sarasota. It went well and I ended up finishing it in 33:18. It’s a little slower than last week’s 5K, but still right around my normal time for a 5K so I was happy with it. I was also happy because I started towards the front of the…
