Saturday, May 4, 2013 marked the third time I have run the Cap City Half Marathon and the 13th Half Marathon I have run over the past 4 years. This year the Cap City course was a little different than it was in years past. This change was made before the Boston Bombings, though there [...]
Half marathon #11 is in the bag! This race also happened to be the first of 6 half marathons that I have on my race schedule this year. Xenia, Ohio is roughly an hour and 20 minutes away from Fleet Feet Columbus, where I met up with 5 Run DMC girls to head out.

The race didn’t start until 11 AM, which is perfect for the day after New Year’s Eve. I made sure to hit the hay early, but did partake in my share of wine [...]

I DID IT! Shiny new PR (personal record) for me! I finished the race in 1:57:31 yesterday – my previous PR was 2:01:22 in the same race in 2009. I don’t think I have ever [...]
