RACING!

2020 is a new year of racing and a new opportunity to have fun with friends! I hope to give speed work a shot and go after some short, fast road PRs that I have out there. Namely, 5k, half marathon, and 5 mile races in preparation for my A-goal of the year. That goal is to set a course record at the Brewhouse Sprint Tri. To do that, I’ll have to be in great running shape, but also good enough swimming and biking shape to put together a complete race.

Other than that, racing goals for 2020 include doing as many different types of races as possible. I would love to do trail and road running, short and long, triathlon, inline skating, gravel bike, and would be especially excited to find a paddleboard race.

Frozen 4 Hour Race Report

Race Date: Saturday, February 22, 2020 – 9am There was excitement at the start line for the four hour loop race. I don’t think many people had done a fixed time winter trail run before. It was my birthday. I think that might have been a first for me, too, racing on my birthday. Either […]

Vasaloppet 42k Classic Race Report

Race Date: Saturday, February 8, 2020 – 10:00am I felt somehow calm at the start line, despite the fact that it was really crazy… I was about to begin a really long ski, a ski race in fact, with many others around me, after less than a month of learning and training!? What else but […]

Northwoods Winter Marathon Race Report

Race Date: Saturday, January 4, 2020 – 9:30am After very challenging conditions one year prior, I was certain by race week that the trail surface at this year’s Northwoods would be prime. All it takes is one day to totally destroy or totally repair the trails in winter but the forecast looked prime and things […]

Ultimate Wildman Challenge Race Report

Wild Duluth 100k Race Day: Saturday, October 19 – 6am Terribly Tough 10k Race Day: Sunday, October 20 – 9:30am I had a pit in my stomach in the dark, headlamp shining, as I stood with 80 other runners at the start line of the Wild Duluth 100k. Sure, I was a bit nervous. 100 […]

Brewhouse Triathlon Race Report

Race Date: Sunday, August 4, 2019 – 8:30am I strolled up to the race venue at beautiful Island Lake outside of Duluth with a bit more than an hour before race time. It was nervewracking to feel late! I felt confident in my abilities to win this race for the 8th time and just wanted […]
