Follow me on my road to fitness… Because it's all about the journey, not the destination.

Race Results

I’m not a fast runner.  I’m never going to win any races.  But that’s not why I run.

I love to run.  It’s a great stress reliever.  And there is absolutely no better feeling than crossing the finish line of a race.  My favorite race is the Half Marathon.  I completed my 5th and best Half this year.

This is my friend Nanya and I after the Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon on 4/1/12.  Time: 2:16:01

Location Race Time Time of Day Pace Between Overall Place Division Place Sex Place
Time 2:16:01 9:48:35 11:05 1386/2620 102/212 596/1447
10K Split 59:47 8:32:20 9:38 1140/2620 78/212 458/1447
ChipStart 2:15 7:32:34 1764/2619 132/212 895/1446

(An entire 5 minutes faster than my last best Half, which was also my flattest Half, and Knoxville is extremely hilly).

My favorite Half so far was the Rock N’ Roll Virginia Beach.  Yes, it’s HOT!  But when you cross the finish line and you’re standing on the beach, it’s sooooo worth it!!  The only other Half I’ve run is the Country Music Marathon in Nashville, TN.  That was fun, but VERY crowded.

    Your site is great 🙂 Small suggestion though, when you add a link (such as to blogs you follow) have it open in a new window- as you never want viewers to leave your website as it’s much harder to come back to. Otherwise from that, v cool!

  2. Thank you so much!! I appreciate the suggestion!!
