Your Race Recaps: 8/15



Here's a new round-up of race reports from all over the world. Congrats to these runners who put so much work into training and crossed the finish lines!

5K:

A Change of Pace blogger, Ben, ran in the Deanna Rose Farmstead Stampede 5K (KS), along with his professor, in 25:55. Looks like he's getting a good start at becoming  a morning person since he was up at 3:45 on race morning!

Arkansas Runner Mom blogger, Tia, was the first female finisher in the Back to School 5K (KY) 19:30. That's a 6:17/mile average pace. It was a family day for her with family members running and spectating on race day.

10K:

Hungry Healthy Happy blogger, Dannii, ran the Race for Life (UK) and raised money for cancer research. With her goal of running 40 races before she turns 40, she's off to a great start.

Half Marathon:

50 Half Marathons in 50 States blogger, Becka, ran the Beaver Creek Trail Half Marathon (CO) in 2:54:25. One of the perks was free race photos, which may become more common in the future according to this article.

On the Run Oregon Blog, Jessica, tells what it was like running the Eugene Half Marathon. This recap is especially interesting if you're thinking about running the Eugene half or the full in the future.

Marathon:

Jozakruns blogger, Joasia, completed the marathon at the Commonwealth Games in Scotland. She proudly ran for Scotland and finished in 2:45:29, coming in as the 3rd female from Scotland.

For the Love of Running blogger, Sarah, completed the Eugene Marathon (OR) in 3:31:15 with an 2 minute PR. She hopes to finish in under 3:30 when she runs the Las Vegas RnR Marathon in November.
