My last race for 2014 brought me to an army post here in the Baltimore area: Fort Meade. I decided on a nice, short 5K because with a marathon and half marathon preceding the month of December, I wanted to take it easy distance-wise. I didn’t have much of a goal for this race other than to go all out and try to PR my 5K race time
Extremely late race recap. Between the holidays and some mental health struggles it took me forever to compile this.
For November’s race I signed up for runDisney’s Avengers Super Hero Half Marathon. This was a new race in the runDisney series and it sold out within 1:48 after registration opened. runDisney races have become extremely popular in the last 3 years so it’s no surprise that a new race would sell out quickly. This race took place at Disneyland in Anaheim, CA. I took the opportunity to make this race a time to take a small vacation to California, my home state.
Last race of the year! Reindeer 5K. Official time – 22:08. Finished my 2014 run goal! #12racesin12months #5K #pacepr #december
I had mentioned to my mother that I was saving up to run the King Crab Challenge in 2015. It’s the only scheduled race I have for next year since I need to back down on the number of events I register for. Living on one income means making some sacrifices and after the nice, active year I’ve had, I don’t mind. My husband and I agreed on one major event a year and I chose this one. My mother surprised me by paying for my registration as my Christmas gift. I’m truly fortunate to have such supportive family members.
