2013 Race Recap #13in2013

Compiling this post made me so sad with all the photos of me & Karyn in the first half of the year. But at least I had 3 races at the end of the year with the Brick City Running Tribe. Then I have guilt because I don't show up for Tuesday night runs in the winter. Not too much guilt though, and I'm not the only one. ;) Oh, and I will get to run my first race of 2014 with Karyn. FYI - this isn't an indepth review of each race. It's mainly a list with times and photos. ;) 1. 2/2/2013 6th Annual Anderson Creek Club 10k - 1:21:51 1-ACC-10K It was so freaking cold. It didn't get above freezing until after I had gotten Starbucks AFTER the race. Run for Sherry (didn't count this one with the races) Picture 24 This was a training run, and pretty sure it was the 9 miler where I limped home with a blister. 2. 2/23/2013 Miles for Missions 5k - 37:00 26362_547702178604129_1447354034_n It poured down rain the whole race. At least it was in the 40sF. ;) 3. 3/17/2013 - Tobacco Trail Half Marathon - 3:20:53 4-ATT-Half Halfs. Where I run slower than walkers. lol. 4. 4/13/2013 - Rabbit Run 5k - 40:06:38 First run of the year without Karyn. She was in Charlotte running a half. I was sick. Again. 5. 4/28/2013 - Sanford FitnessFest 10k - 1:19:18 I came in dead last. 6. 5/18/2013 - The Ninja Challenge Obstacle 5K - 1:27:52 photo(1) I flat out skipped the last obstacle without attempting it. 7. 5/25/2013 - Someone Special Like Me 5k - 40:52 972364_587372364637110_532879231_n Cold in May. Much like this past weekend where it was mid-70s right before Christmas. 8. 6/27/2013 - Esprit de She Cary, NC 5k - 39:27 It was so hot and so humid. 9. 7/28/2013 - Running Mad 2013 Summer Virtual Half Marathon - 3:14:18 I finished this strictly on technicality. By that I mean I combined 2 or 3 bad training runs to add up to 13.1 miles. The rules allowed it. Stop judging me. My life fell apart in July. ;) 10. 8/24/2013 - CARA Run for Their Lives 10k - 1:24:11 11-CARA-10k I was much faster last year. See the last sentence of #9. Ride Out Cancer Virtual 50k photo3-smaller This wasn't a run. Obviously. lol I did this instead of the trail marathon I signed up for, changed to a half, and then just didn't do. Was probably another result of the last sentence of #9. But I enjoyed 31 miles of biking. 11. 11/9/2013 - Run to Reclaim 5k - 36:42 12-RuntoReclaim-5k This was unplanned, but Karyn talked me into doing this one while she did a 5k supporting orphans in Memphis. Our way of running together virtually. And it was a great race. 12. 11/16/2013 - The Dynamic Duel Canada vs USA Virtual 5k - 44:02 (3.4 mi) 13-DynamicDuel-Virtual5k This was Molly's doing. I miss running with her too. :( And this 5k was 5.4 miles. Just because. ;) 13. 11/23/2013 - Gerome's Victory 5k Run/Walk - 37:21 1477935_10152454565858849_2071057164_n This was my last race before I bought new shoes. I felt really good during this one until that hill by Roses. 14. 12/7/2013 - Reindeer Fun Run 12ks of Christmas - 1:41:08 15-ReindeerRun12k Cold & rainy, but I was not dead last even though they tore down the race as the last 3 of us were struggling in. I am still waiting on 2 medals, but here is my 2013 bling rack. Karyn made me this to show off my bling and bibs. Once the remaining medals arrive, there will be a big photo with all the bibs. Because that's how I roll. lol Bling
