Did a 5K for the Ronald McDonald House. Ran 34 minutes and something.....My HM buddy and I did a 10K on our own prior to this one. Really fun because we ran the 5K with our friend - he had heart surgery this time last year - it was his first 5K and he ran the whole thing and came in 13th in his age group. HM coming up on Mother's Day. eeek!

I ran the Seaside Half Marathon in Ventura on Sunday. For an out and back course, you couldn't do much better. It followed the bike paths from the beach front and then along Rte.1 up the coast. You could watch surfers almost the whole way. It was well run and I have nothing but good things to say about the race. Even the parking situation wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be (I left before 10:00 and they didn't charge me anything at the lot.)

I was injured in my last race, and only really got back into training three weeks ago, but I had already paid so I decided to see how I would do. Not great. I need to run some shorter races to get my confidence back.

We haven't been using this thread lately (maybe due to frigid temps??), but we don't need to forget about it. I ran a 5 miler on New Years day. It was my comeback race after a year of fractured tibial plateau and a torn meniscus (surgery required). It was nowhere need the speed I once was, but it was as strong as I wanted to be. It was a good race. emoticon

Ran the Baltimore 5K Saturday in 30:56. Not a PR but not a bad time for how little I've been road running lately. I think I could have been up to a full minute faster if there hadn't been a *ton* of walkers who had started ahead of me and were walking 4 across in the middle of the road. I have nothing against people walking races but at least be considerate of faster participants and start at the back, stick to the sides, and don't walk in groups of more than 2 across. Dodging around all of them for the first mile was not fun.

Ran my first half marathon yesterday in Ocean City, NJ. Not only did I not stop running (no walk breaks) but I actually beat other racers in my age group! I've run a couple of 5ks, and finished dead last in my age group both times. My time for the race was 2:21:41, which would have been unfathomable for me a couple of years ago.

Do. Or do not. There is no "try."

If anyone needs proof that you can do it, take a look at my story.

I hated running--and sports, really, but I did get into athletics in junior high school because it was better than regular old P.E. But then, in high school, I only had to take one year of P.E. so I got that over with and quit sporty stuff for ever. I mean, I was in dance classes, but that was different. Very different.

When I was in my 20s and had access to an on-campus INDOOR track, I started walking a bit, and at one point, I thought, I'd better go ahead and start running, just to get my heart rate really up. (It made that after-workout cigarette that much better!) I started out running the curves of the track, and I ended up getting stress fractures in both legs, making it hard to walk for several months, painful for more than a year, and... well, my ankles still both carry fluid from that fiasco.

Fast forward several years, and I'm back to not getting my heart rate up with walking anymore. I've learned, by this point, about interval training, and I've seen success for those who followed the C25K-of-some-variety program, and I've read up on the program.

And I think, "Nah. If I can hurt myself so badly when I'm in my 20s, how much worse can I hurt myself in my 30s?" So I don't...

until the day I decide to go ahead and try, just for a little bit.

I try, and I try, and I try, and I don't know how people do it. Then, one day, I stop trying so hard. I run more slowly--like, walking speed. I concentrate on controlling my breathing, because that's what's really made it hard, was getting out of breath. And then I try, and I try, and I try.

I do a few 5Ks, and I enjoy them, even if I'm near the end, taking more breaks to walk than chances to run. I start running a little longer, now that breathing is easier and I've figured out (and read) that going slow doesn't hurt anything, and I decide to work on stamina first, speed later. I finally even get to a point where I don't have to think about my breathing, and I don't have to push myself... I run (no matter how slowly) until I NEED a break.

And yesterday, I ran a whole 5K for the first time ever! I really did! Yay, and WooHOO!

Ran my first ever 10k as the final leg of the OKC Memorial Marathon. My time was 1:15 and I am proud that I finished. Now I am looking for my next 10k in the fall to see if I can beat that time.

Completed my first timed 5k! Run for the Lakes. The weather was great with a few hills on the course. Unfortunately, it was also muddy so I felt my feet slip a bit on one of the hills. Finished in 28:17.

Sole of the City 10k in Baltimore 4/20/2013. Morning was a bit brisk but sun was out by the time we lined up at the start line. I had a hope of breaking 1:00 but bad stomach cramps in miles 2 and 3 slowed me down. Final time: 1:04 and change.

I'd totally do this race again. The course is nicely laid out through the Inner Harbor and the Federal Hill neighborhood. Some fun and not so fun hills (a 15% slope in the last half mile...evil). Totally awesome embroidered Underarmor jacket for the premium.

Run Your Heart Out 5k race on April 20th. Weather was cold! There were a few ice patches too. Not how I envisioned running my first 5k at the end of April but it was good. My 10 month old had been sick so I didn't get much sleep the night before the race.

My pace suffered due to the weather and lack of sleep but I still managed to finish in 37:25

"Run From Winter" 10k today (ironically, at 36 degrees - where the heck is Spring?!)

No matter - SMASHED my anticipated time of 9min/mi with an average 8.25/mile!

Also, my husband's first 10k and he totally beat his goal too! A great day for everyone.

5K Santa Run in the snow. Very appropriate weather but not the greatest for running in. 5th out of 17 with a time of 28 minutes something... I would expect to break 25 minutes on that course under normal conditions, but on snow I'm happy with that. (The winning time this year was about three minutes slower than last year, and it was the same winner.) I seem to have a niche at the moment where I can outrun the elite females, but I'm still quite a way off being elite for a male. (When I say "elite", of course what I really mean is the best runners who do the sort of small races I do. The serious elite probably concentrate on the bigger races so I wouldn't be up against them anyway. The real elite women would leave me far behind.)

I ran in a 5K race today, the Santa Shuffle!

The race kit was really good! Deodorant, a kickboxing dvd, iRun magazine, tickets for a Marlies (hockey) game, juice pop, hand sanitizer and a pencil.

It was a fundraiser for the Salvation Army.

Turkey Stampede

This race happens every year on Thanksgiving morning, it helps our local homeless shelter. I ran the 5K this year with my husband, it was a beautiful morning with higher than normal temps and I was so impressed with the number of people who showed up. I did not run my best time, nor did I try. This was the first 5K for my husband so I just ran with him and a friend and enjoyed the event. We are both looking forward to this race next year!

I love this race for the atmosphere. Everyone is in a good mood. There are always a number of people wearing silly costumes and all times are unofficial so its not crazy competitive. Course is pretty flat and very scenic. I've done this race 3x!

Yay! I want to do a Beat Beethoven! I think there's only been one in the UK so far and I'd love to organise the second. I'm doing a charity challenge over 50 days next spring and I'm thinking that would make a great finale.

I did a 3K race today, so only a short one but it was quite good fun. Again I found that pretty quickly I ended up running on my own, a long distance between me and the person in front, and another long distance to the person behind. I'd like more of an actual *race*, really - I'm paying to run with a load of other people but it doesn't really happen. After the first half a kilometre I'm just running solo. Anyway, I did 14:32, and it was a weak enough field for that to secure me third place. So I'm happy with that.

Ran the Race 2 the Summit HM on Saturday. 6 miles uphill, and 6 miles down, plus a little on the flat. Great race, felt strong throughout. Finished in 2:48, which isn't bad for me.

This morning as part of a Triathlon Training Camp weekend I am completing I ran the Mississippi River Run10K in Hannibal MO. My time was not what I was shooting for but this is a VERY hilly course and I did take 1 minute 30 off my time when I ran this race in 2009. So, I did live up to my motto: "Older, Lighter, Faster." My time was 52:51 an 8:31 pace. I got a medal as the second masters female and was 23rd overall. I am pleased.

I ran my 4th 5k on Friday night...
Tough run! It was a trail run, but probably half of it was on city streets and a road that ran through a cemetery and then a park. There were over 900 runners, 200+ under the age of 14!
It was very frustrating because most of them were messing around and to be quite honest, under foot.
emoticon
All 900+ of us had to go through a 1 person sized opening in a split rail fence! DOH!
Yup, had to wait my turn for that!
emoticon
The trail portion was on the side of a hill with roots and rocks...lol! It was crazy!
However:
My 5k time: 29:15.7
14th of 54 in the 40-44 Age Group (Yay me!!)
314th of 705 Overall (Yay me, again!)
My personal goal...to be in the top 50% and under 30 minutes!
Not too bad for someone that has been running for 3 months! Ha!!

So...emoticon

Today I completed my second 5K ever, and I managed to run the WHOLE thing, despite the temperature being in the eighties with a humidity of 62%. My time was 32:56, a record for me, and I ranked in the top half of both my age group (20-24) AND overall. I'm super happy about the whole experience.

You were brave! We looked at the dinner crowd at CBS and bailed. :) Ended up going up route 1 to find something to eat. I think it was one of the best organized races I've done, though. I'll definitely do it again.

Nice work JECKIE! Big deal on the time. YOU DID IT. It was HOT HOT HOT! I also thought challenging course- although most of it was flat- it really did not feel like it. I never felt comfortable the entire race. On the other side of it though, thought the race was well organized, GREAT chip timing at the start AND finish, great freebies,and overall never felt stressed- even though there were quite a few runners and walkers out for this. I would definitely do this again. I even brought a change of clothes and was daring- changed in the port o- potty-WAY away by the movie theatre side. It was actually clean, and I just quickly slipped on this cute easy dress, sprayed my hair, wiped my sweat off, and went out. Did the wine tasting at Tastings, had dinner there, and then checked out Toby Keith's bar. We had a margarita. I also caught the fireworks ! FUN ... Congrats girl!

I also ran the Gillette 10K. My time was no where near Marli's. ;) I came in at 1:27 (slower than my norm - I was helping a friend). It was ridiculously hot, and it took us 12 minutes to get TO the start line after the gun went off.

It was cool to hang out on the field afterward, though!

Ran the Gillette Race to the 50 10k. 48 flat- not a pr but close. Was 315th out of 2900, 11th out of 390 in my division. Not sure # female overall. Good pace but felt awful running it. The entire time pretty much. HOT, and just went out too fast as usual. Got trapped too far back. Oh well-loved the race experience and would do again!

Maybe so on the PRs! I have only TWO Mylie's! Granted I just started to run these Summer Good Times Last year. I always end up missing 2 so I end up falling out of contention for my age group. Right now- I am in second. Oh well- they are a lot of fun. I love the themes. I am running that 10k at Gillette Stadium this coming Tuesday so I am out for the free beer!

Gunfighter Stampede Half Marathon June 2nd (2 weeks after my last HM)

This was an inaugural off-road/cross country run that finished at the Snake River. The heat really got to me, along with some sandy parts of the road. Struggled quite a bit and there was some walking in there. Finished in 2:55:xx.

I ran a really small 5k this morning and won my age division. Even though I was the first female over age 16 to cross the finish line, it was a hollow victory because my time was 2 minutes slower than last week. :-P Anyways, 3.1 in 28:56 netted me a medal, so I'll take it.

Our next race is Everest at Disney World on May 5! :-) Can't wait!

Sat, Apr 14 - Nike She Runs LA 10k (80s Themed)
I signed up with a few friends, we wore our neon/tutus/lace gloves and had a blast. It was a friend's first race so we took it easy and had a lot of fun. She made it through and now we are all signed up for a Spartan Sprint :)

It began at 10am though which seemed pretty late but the weather was great, the race goodies were not really existent. We got the Hurley bracelets from the Nike Women's Marathon earlier this year but I would have preferred a Nike shirt - especially since those are particularly comfortable for me. Or maybe even a coupon. The bag was one I think they give to members of their training club. But no big deal, it was a fun race and it was to raise money for charity.

4 Mile Road Race in Salisbury, MA. It was pretty cold this morning but that's only because it's been so crazy warm lately. Race was well organized, great turn out, and I was happy with my results (PR for me!)

Race report- Meghan McCarthy 5k- very poorly organized- no real timers- OOF. I had my garmin- that said 23.14 for 3.14 miles. I have NO idea where I placed - nor in age category. Saw they had the age awards-40-59!!! Men and women combined? WTH? I understand- they ran the race/walk for a good cause- these were basically high school kids. As a runner though- huge let down when not properly timed nor the times recorded right. oH WELL- supported the cause - cancer research and had a good race.

Saturday, Mar 24th - Kacie's Run 5K, Carrollton, TX

This 5K is meant to raise money (and awarenss) for the school district's special olympics. Some people run it, some people walk it. I tried to run it as much as I could.

It was a beautiful morning. Sun shining, 65 with a light, cool breeze. Awesome weather for a run.

5K. My chip time was 35:39. New PR! I placed 20 out of 62 for females in my age group, and 224 out of 515 overall.

Ran the New Bedford Half Marathon yesterday. Nice day- sunny but a bit windy- near the ocean especially. Had a MUCH better race than my last one. 1:49 flat or a 8:20 pace. Felt good and know I could have pushed a bit harder so this result is great.
