11 races completed in 2014!
(Five 5Ks, one 10K and five half marathons.)
1/12/14, Hot Chocolate 5K San Francisco
Ran for chocolate and had a great time doing it!
1/26/14, Jenny’s Light 5K
Fun run with my BFFs supporting another very good cause!
2/15/14, Bay Breeze 10K
Love Brazen races but my knee took me down at mile 1.35 so it’s now my slowest 10K to date. 1:05 finish. Boo.
3/23/14, Oakland Running Festival Marathon
INJURED, deferred to 2015.
4/4/14, Ragnar Relay, So Cal
INJURED, so unhappy about missing this one I could punch something.
4/13/14, Presidio 10
INJURED, love this race SO MUCH!!! Bummer.
4/27/14, San Luis Obispo (Half) Marathon
Injured, so with an 8 hour course limit, I walked SLO.
3:36 finish- a PR in half marathon walking!
5/18/14, Windsor Green Half Marathon
INJURED, so I basically just gave them $65. Fantastic.
6/22/14, See Jane Run 5K (Alameda)
First race since my injury and a
33:13 finish! MIRACLE!!!
7/27/14, The San Francisco Marathon (2nd half)
Despite my injury, I somehow pulled it together and ran/walked/crawled to the finish. (Don’t think I’ll ever look up my official finish time though because I really don’t want to know just how horribly I did!)
8/16/14, The Town’s Half Marathon
Inaugural race through Oakland, California, just healing from my injury so with a 3:00 time limit, I really struggled to get there in 2:52!
10/19/14, Nike Women’s Half Marathon SF
My first somewhat successful race in one whole year! Took it slow and easy and had a great time doing it, 3:03 finish.
11/8/14, Santa Barbara Half Marathon
Still healing so I ran as best I could, walked a lot, 80 degrees by 8am and I was pretty much done! Can’t write the recap as I don’t really feel like revisiting yet another race I feel I failed. My blog isn’t called WALKING4theReason, darn it.
3:12 finish and I hate that. Hmph.
11/16/14, Mustache Dache 5K San Francisco
Fun run through Golden Gate Park benefiting Movember and men’s health, such a great time! Head injury still healing so we ran/walked and happily enjoyed many post race beers! We got totally lost on the walk to the starting line so this was more like a 15K and after all those beers, I completely forget what our finish time was! Quite possibly 2 hours… 😉
