So, I thought that I ran in some half marathon races in 2011 and 2012, but I can’t find any proof of that. The only race I know I participated in was the Loveland, Colorado, Mud Brigade (held at The Ranch) with these fabulous girls. It has become somewhat of a tradition now among us. The actual running distance is only a 5K, but the obstacles and mud make it quite a fun challenge! I know I was continuing to run three or four times a week, but, yeah, I wasn’t really racing back then. I was working on strengthening my upper body and core and was lifting three times a week. I would typically run for about 35 minutes and then do upper body and call it good with about 60 minutes of exercise. Maybe 90 on a good day.
We had so much fun the first year, that we decided to do it again the following year.
This fabulous group of women ran it in 2014 as well, but I was unable to run that year with them due to another commitment.
My story continues with my next entry: Moab Canyonlands Half Marathons 2013-2015.
