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…

Jingle Bell 5K

Last night I ran the Jingle Bell 5K to benefit the Arthritis Foundation. We formed a team at work, so I decided to join it. Plus, I needed to do a 3 mile run on Friday for my training program, so why not do a 5K?! I really enjoyed this race. We started out in downtown…

Turkey Trotting

It’s that time of the year again. The day that we give thanks, spending time with family, eat lots of food, and…run a race. This morning I did the Sarasota Turkey Trot again. Just one of many Turkey Trots around the country. It’s a great way to start out Thanksgiving, and then you don’t have…

Sarasota Turkey Trot

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! On Thanksgiving Day all across the U.S., cities have annual Turkey Trot 5K races. Today I did my first Turkey Trot in Sarasota, FL. And for Florida, it was chilly. It was only 45 degrees when the race started. I was excited to get running because I was so cold waiting around….

Ice Cream Social 5K

This morning I ran the NYCRUNS Ice Cream Social 5K on New York’s Roosevelt Island. It went extremely well for no training…and by no training, I mean no running for three weeks. I ran it with my friend and co-work Amanda. We finished in 31:36. Not bad at all. The course was beautiful. Roosevelt Island…

Riverside Park 5K

This morning my roommate and I went up to Manhattan Valley (by the Upper West Side) to run the NYCRUNS Riverside Park 5K. She’s currently training for her second half marathon and as part of that training she needed to run a 5K this weekend, so I decided to do it with her. We headed…

First NYC Race

In a week and a half I will be running my first race in New York City. My roommate is currently training for her second half marathon and as part of her program she needs to do a 5K race, so I’m going to do it with her. On March 16 we will be running…

Royal Family 5K

A year ago I ran my first 5K. It just so happened to be the Tangled Royal Family 5K is DisneyWorld. Well this weekend I returned to Disney and ran the Mickey and Minnie Royal Family 5K. I can hardly call it a run though. Sine doing the 5K and the half marathon last year,…

First Run of February

About half way through the month I finally got my butt to the gym for a run. Good since I’m doing the Mickey and Minnie 5K on Saturday. Although, I’m running with my 8 year old cousins, so I won’t be running like I normally do. Anyways, for not running for a couple of weeks,…

End of the Year Summary

Wow…today is the last day of 2012. This was the first year that I was back in the swing of working out, so I think it’s a good time to recap and summarize. In my last post a mentioned a few highlights, but I’m going to mention them again (in more detail). My New Year’s…

The Color Run

Yesterday I ran in The Color Run: Cincinnati with my boyfriend.  I’ve know a few people that have done it before and everyone said it was so much fun, but honestly, I don’t see what all the hype it about. So The Color Run is a 5K where at each kilometer a different color powder/paint…

Ready for More Races!
