Your Race Recaps! (8/29)
I'm happy to feature another week of runners and their race reports. Whether they ran 5K or 47.5 miles or something in between, they inspired me to get outside and go for a run. I hope these race recaps do the same for you!
Age Groups Rock blogger, AJH, ran Zoe's 5K (VT) coming in 2nd for her age group. The race raises funds to make homes accessible for those who are handicapped. Recognized by another runner because of her blog, someone surprised her with a "Hi, Age Groups"!
Peanut Butter Runner blogger, Jen, completed the OrthoCarolina Classic 5K (NC). She ran negative splits, set a new PR and finished in 21:55.
Running the Race blogger, Karien, came in 2nd at the Marrick Trail 10K (South Africa) with a finish time of 52:37. Sounds like her double stroller training runs are paying off!
Why Mom Runs blogger, Cheryl, completed the Saunders at Rye Harbor 10K (NH) in 47:11 - a couple of minutes faster than her goal time!
Apple Crumbles blogger, Joanne, came in 1st place in her age group at the Turning Stone Half Marathon (NY) with a time of 1:42 and her husband came away with a PR.
Eat Spin Run Repeat blogger, Angela, ran the Lululemon SeaWheeze Half Marathon (Canada) in 1:30:32. See her recap for great ideas on where to eat in Vancouver and to read about Lululemon's pre-race sale.
JerBear Shares blogger, Jeri, ran the Go Far Woman Half Marathon (ND) in 2:09:05. It was her 23rd half marathon.
JoZak Runs blogger, Joasia, represented Scotland at the Pike's Peak Ascent Half Marathon (CO). Although she had just recently run a marathon at the Commonwealth Games in Scotland, she pushed through to the end and ran from Manitou Springs to the top of Pike's Peak with a 7815' elevation gain.
Fun Fit Mom blogger, Angela, ran the Santa Rosa Marathon (CA) and finished in 3:44:26 with a BQ. Visit her blog for details on how the race went, beginning with an earthquake in the morning.
Laces and Lattes blogger, Jessica, completed the EndurRun Marathon (Canada) in 3:21:36. Part of her incentive during the race was the Nutella her friend had waiting for her at the finish line!
Breathe Deeply and Smile blogger, Lauren, ran the Charles Street 12 Mile Race (MD) as a marathon goal paced training run. After 10 miles at goal pace, she picked up the pace and finished in 1:33:34.
Fuel Your Future with Tina blogger ran the Crim Festival 10 Mile Race (MI) in 58:55 and was the 15th female finisher. She's training for the Chicago Marathon in October.
NYC Running Mama blogger, Michelle, completed the 7.3 mile Falmouth Race (MA). She ran with Meb for part of the race and she finished in 50:28, which is a 7:13/mile pace.
