Pacer Report: 2013 SLO Marathon

Last year I was a spectator at the SLO Marathon and immediately put it on my list of marathons I wanted to run.  Not only is it in San Luis Obispo – where I went to college and very close to where I grew up – but it was a very well organized, small town […]

Race Report: 2013 Gorge Waterfall 50k

At the end of 2012 when browsing around for fun races to run, the Gorge Waterfall 50k caught my attention and I couldn’t stop thinking about it.  I mean, pictures of running by and behind amazing waterfalls in Oregon will do that to a girl.  After a couple of persuasive gchats and texts with Jojo, […]

Race Report: 2013 Way Too Cool 50k

In 2012 I ran Way Too Cool 50k as my first official ultra, but mostly it was a long training run for AR50.  I still remember driving back from Auburn that day, so happy, excited and floating around on a runner’s high.  There wasn’t a doubt in my mind that I would put in for […]

Race Report: 2013 ITR Lake Chabot 30k

I was really excited for the Inside Trail Racing Lake Chabot race this year.  I ran it last year and loved the course, plus this year so many friends were going to be there! Chris and I made the easy drive over to Lake Chabot and met up with a bunch of friends before the […]

Race Report: 2013 ITR Fort Ord 50k

Back when I was scouring the Inside Trail site for what races I wanted to run in 2013, this race very much jumped out at me.  I had never been running at Fort Ord, and really had no idea what to expect in terms of terrain, but new trails always sound like a good idea […]

Race Report: 2013 Brazen NYD Half Marathon

Lake Chabot this morning. I just got back from a beautiful morning run with Jess around Lake Chabot and realized that my race report from the New Years Day race around this lake was still sitting in draft form in Windows Live Writer.  So, before I get wrapped up in writing about my Mt. Diablo […]

Race Report: 2012 ITR Rodeo Beach 30k

I am a little tardy with this race report, you know since this race happened way back in 2012. I didn’t want to end my year of running in the Marin Headlands with a DNF.  I had my eye on this race for a few months, and once I knew I was in good shape […]

Race Report: 2012 TNF50 DNF

2012 has been a year of firsts for me.  I ran my first ultra-marathon.  I ran my first 50 miler.  I dealt with my first running injury.  I fell head over heals in love with trail running.  And now, I have my first big DNF. This is not the race report I want to be […]

Race Report: ITR Mt. Tam 50k

I have a lot of runs and training to catch up on, but I just have to sit down and write this race report while it’s very fresh in my head. When I made my training plan for The North Face 50M, I was able to rely a lot on things I learned from training […]

Race Report: 2012 ITR Folsom Lake 50k

I was really excited going into this race.  After a number of weekends of solo long runs, I was excited for both the race atmosphere and the change of scenery in trails.  This would also be my first ultra of this training cycle and only my second “official” 50k.  Saturday I ran 23 solo miles […]
