Running: A Year Later

Wow, I can't believe it has been a year since I have written! I loved looking back through the archives and seeing how far my running has come.

The highlight of my running year in 2011? My first full marathon! Des Moines in 4:09:18. I was incredibly proud of my time considering I didn't actually sign up until about a month prior...

Another exciting highlight was my first relay race, Market to Market. A 78 mile run from Omaha to Lincoln. I was part of a team of 6 who all took turns running incredibly fast legs. I ran an average of 3 speedy 5ks right in a row!

I ran my second half marathon in my goal time under two hours: 1:54:28. I was elated, especially after a disappointing first half (Lincoln) in 2:01. In my defense, I was quite sick on the course.

I PR'd in my second 5k: 22:16. It was a fun, fast race. I also placed in 3 5ks this year!
