Revel Chilliwack Marathon 2019 Race Report

My Mom has been trying to qualify for Boston, and I’d always said that if she qualified, I’d register and run with her. Well, at the end of July, she did it!

Mesa-Phx Marathon 2018 Race Report

When she turned 60 in 2009, my Mom decided to run her first marathon. She finished in 5:03:39, just slightly slower than her 4:59:59 goal.

Harmon Lake Trail Marathon Race Report

Small races = friendly faces! This weekend Sara and I flew to North Dakota to meet my parents and run races associated with the Harmon Lake Trail Festival.
