Your Race Recaps! 9/5


From the 5k to the 50K, these runners pushed themselves through the pain, the heat and the sand to cross the finish lines. Thank you for inspiring me, runners!

5K:

Eat Host Run Style blogger, Sun, completed the Lake Country 5K (WI) in 19:40. Not only was that a PR finish, she was 2nd in her age group.

10K:

Life Between the Miles blogger, Sara, completed the XTerra Hodges Hoedown trail 10K race (MA). Even on a sore ankle, she finished in 1 hour and came in 2nd in the 20-39 age group.

Half Marathon:

50 Half Marathons in 50 States blogger, Rebecca, completed the Bergen Peak Trail Race in Evergreen, CO. This was her 115th half marathon and she finished in 3:14:36.

Back at Square Zero blogger, Abby, completed the Virginia Beach Rock 'n Roll Half (VA) in 2:26:26 and shared details about running the race and the advantages of being on Team Chocolate Milk.

Fairy Tales and Fitness bloggers, Lacey and Miranda, both completed the Virginia Beach Rock 'n Roll Half (VA). Read their recap for information on the expo and the Beach Mile race held the day before.

Glitter and Dust blogger, Kristen, was the first female overall, a first for her, in the Sunriver Half Marathon (near Bend, OR). She finished in 1:38:04 after completing a triathlon only a couple of weeks ago.

Marathon:

50 After 40 blogger, Jim, completed the Pocatello Marathon (ID) in 3:26:51. This was a rough race for him, but as always, he wrote a complete review of the race, which is helpful if you're considering running this one.

50K:

Run to Munch blogger, Liana, completed the TARC Summer Classic 50K Trail Race (MA) with trail sections along the Charles River. She finished in 6:54:47 with a PR.

    1. I'm guessing that as the weather cools down in the U.S., it will be even easier to find more recaps. I don't know how everyone manages all of these hot weather races and fast times!
