We had run the California International Marathon together in 2009, but then a hurricane and a broken leg prevented us from running the New York City Marathon together in 2012 and 2013. My Mom had completed CIM in 5:03 and New York […]

2015 Colfax 5K Race Report

My third 5K of the year was two years to the day after the knee injury that lead to my surgery. I’m definitely feeling like a strong runner again! I had a pretty high mileage week and this definitely wasn’t an important race for me – I told Sara I didn’t really plan to push. Of course, that never actually […]

Pikes Peak Marathon 2014 Race Report

I’m back! The Pikes Peak Marathon in 2012 was the last marathon I ran before I had to undergo knee surgery in June 2013, and it was great to be able to toe the line at the 2014 event. Sure, perhaps not the most prudent comeback race, but it just seemed right. If you’re going to come back to marathoning, […]

Although the speed isn’t back yet, the drive to race is! Today I ran the Garden of the Gods Ten Mile Run with Erin. She suggested it in the middle of the week and I decided I may as well as I really like running down by the Springs. However as the weekend drew closer I got a bit more […]
