Frederick Half Marathon


Finally got to my first half marathon post-baby. The weather was perfect and Frederick is a nice town. It was pretty good course with some hills, because yes, Maryland. The worst was there was a decent one in the last half mile…I just didn’t have the oomph for that one. I might have kept running …

It was their 5th anniversary and we had a good run. The weather was pretty good and although we were slow from lack of training it turned out better than I thought.

Nike Women’s Marathon – San Fran Day 3

Jean and I around mile 12

Wake up around 5 and start pre-race routine. Worry you forgot something, meet Jean at 6:15. Start run at 7…or more like 7:25. Run, bob and weave, walk, Run, Run.

Geist Half 2011

Me and Jean post run

Knobstone Trail Run

Indianapolis Marathon Relay

Jean needed a 4th person for her co-worker relay team, Homecare Hotties. I had the first leg and she had the last one. While we were chatting after my leg, she missed the bus to the relay spot. So we went on a journey to find it. No problem…then I made her take a picture …
