2017 Race Round Up

2017 was a big year of races for me. Not that a ran a ton of races, I only ran three (plus a fun run) and I ran a couple more races in 2016 and 2015. But I got a new half marathon PR and ran my first full marathon. So here’s a round up of my races from 2017!

Lake Minnetonka Half Marathon

This was my first race of the year and it was a great way to kick off my racing year! I used a heart rate training program and got a 10 minute PR, plus it gave me something to keep my mind off the fact that my wedding was quickly approaching.

Bear Water Run 20 Miler

Four months after the Lake Minnetonka Half, I ran my second race of the year. This was my longest race distance to that point (although not my longest run) and I used it as a prep race for the Twin Cities Marathon.

And rounding out my races in 2017 was the Twin Cities Marathon! My first marathon and my A race for the year.

(Bonus) Social Ciderwerks Fun Run

Six days after the Twin Cities Marathon, I was back out and running! Mike and I love the Brewery Running Series runs.
