In August I raced…
who was there: Livvy & Me
what was my time & pace: 1 hour, 25 minutes, 42 seconds @ 8:37 pace
where the race was: York County Heritage Rail Trail
when did the race happen: August 27, 2016
why the race was awesome: I clinched 2nd place for my age group! I won my very own 2nd place beer glass. It’s kind of funny since I don’t even drink beer. And, this was a 10 mile personal record (PR) for me.
how many miles: 10 long, flat miles
In September I raced…
who was there: Sandy & Me
what was my time & pace: 25 minutes, 13 seconds @ 8:04 pace
where the race was: New Hope, PA (Run Now, Wine Later)
when did the race happen: September 18, 2016
why the race was awesome: It was a *short* race and we were served wine and o’dourves after our race. I ran this race last year and both years I had the exact same time. Just think that’s kind of interesting.
how many miles: 3.1 miles (5K)
In October I raced…
who was there: Sandy & Me
what was my time & pace: 1 hour, 49 minutes, 25 seconds @ 8:20 pace. Yes, I crushed it!
where the race was: Hershey, PA
when did the race happen: October 16, 2016
why the race was awesome: I set another 1/2 marathon personal record (PR) for myself and came in 13th for my age group! The course was hilly, but I pushed myself and can’t even believe I achieved another PR.
how many miles: 13.1 miles (1/2 marathon)
And in November I will race again (Turkey Trot 5k),
but in December I will rest!

Wow! I love this!! The stats make it so interesting to compare. Happy Turkey Trot!!!
I’m tired reading this! I’m sticking with yoga for the time being and I give you a WHOLE lot of credit. Enjoy your December rest!
Any race that involves wine has got my vote! What a fun recap of all of your accomplishments, but I agree with Melanie — I’m tired just from reading this! Whew!!
Great times! It’s been a long time since I signed up for a race, but you make me want to decide on one to run soon!
I’ve been a runner off and on since high school. It’s such a great way to exercise, I love it! However, now that I’m older, I’m so much slower than I used to be! But I still get out there when I can! Congrats on your races! Those are some great times!
Great accomplishments. Congratulations.
Doesn’t it feel so awesome to complete things like this ?!
Congrats on those PRs. I love the structure you chose to share the races. Will you really rest in December? Come to Seattle, we have the Jingle Bell Run in December!
Oh, and in case you’re interested, another dog book in my WTR (want to read) stack is Friendship Followed Me home.
Sorry, it’s WHEN Friendship Followed Me Home.
Sounds like you had some awesome races! Congrats!
