Carerra de los Muertos: Chicago, IL. November 3, 2012. TIME: 20:35.
This is one of my favorite annual 5k’s. I got my second skull award and enjoyed seeing the “team Latino” contingent of our “Bootleg Runner’s Coalition” Mens division race and dance to The Percolator.
The Mount Greenwood 5k: Mount Greenwood, IL. September 22, 2012. 20:41 First Place Female. I ran this with several co-workers, for some it was their first race!
Minoqua No Frills Marathon: September 2, 2012 TIME: 3:35:14 My favorite marathon course to date (Boston notwithstanding). Also, the time flew by and I followed my performance plan pretty closely, two firsts for the marathon distance that feel like a milestone.
Waterfall Glen Xtreme 10: Waterfall Glen Forest Preserve, July 21, 2012. Not my fastest race, but the first time I’ve ever felt in total control. I had a plan and I didn’t vary at all.
Firecracker 5k: Thomaston, ME. July 4, 2012 The Pik Quick brown bag of treats didn’t last the ride back to my Aunt and Uncle’s cottage. PR, and broke 20 for the first time: 19:51
Jim Gibbons 5k:
The North Shore Half Marathon: Highland Park, IL. June 10, 2012 Not my best, not my worst: 1:38:50
- United Run For The Zoo 10K: Chicago, IL. June 03, 2012 : worst feeling 10k in memory. I was on day two of a flu-virus or something. It was not fun. This course is weird and slightly dangerous (crosses over itself), and the volunteers were super rude at packet pick-up. Probably should have ditched. 45:34 … felt like 2 hours.
THE Boston Marathon: April 16, 2012 done…holy hell.
