RACING!

In 2022, I am focusing on paddling big miles in the Boundary Waters Canoe Wilderness. I am excited for some various races despite this, including some hopefully speedy, relatively short running races. And, of course, why not spice up adventure stand up paddleboard training with some paddle races! I’m very excited!

Brewhouse Triathlon Race Report

Race Date: Sunday, August 7, 2022 – 8:30am Another Brewhouse. I feel like I get pretty nervous or anxious before Brewhouse most years, almost like a dread.

Vatten Paddlar Race Report

Saturday, June 9, 2022 – 9am I was discouraged at the start line to see so few stand up paddleboards, but excited to try to compete and do by best. I signed up for the Vatten Paddlar 5 Mile paddle race in hopes that it’d be a fun training for the Boundary Waters traverse – […]

Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon Race Report

Race Day: Saturday, June 18, 2022 – 6am Another one. This is such a fun race and it was highly anticipated for me. It is crazy to think that this was the first race I really signed up for way back in 2008 (for the 2009 version). I thought many times during my training cycle […]

Terribly Tough 10k Race Report

Race Date: Sunday, October 17, 2021 – 9:30am At the starting line of the Terribly Tough 10k, the very next morning after a solid yet taxing win at Wild Duluth 100k, I was finally sure that I would be able to make the distance. I didn’t know for sure if I’d run the whole way, […]
