Guys, I don't even know who I am anymore. I ran 8 races this year! That's more races than ever! I wasn't racing the races. By I ran them all the same.
Here are some fun facts about the races...
1. Every race was a trail race.
2. The distances ranged from 15k-20 miles.
3. I ran races in three different states.
4. I ran a race on my 36th birthday.
5. I got my first post race massage.
6. One race had a crazy guy with a gun threatening runners.
There are four more races I am thinking about doing to finish off the year. The Hex Hollow Half (registered), Williamsport Trail Half Marathon, and The Dirty Bird (either the 15k or 30k distances), and The Naked Nick (25k distance).
Since I am registered for Hex Hollow, I will definitely do it unless for some reason by body is telling me NO. The other two will be last minute decisions!
Lately, I have only liked racing at the last minute. Less pressure!

It was fun to go back and look at my times and see how well I did compared to others. I'm proud that I can usually place well even if I'm just running for "fun" and didn't really train! I guess that's easier for me to do these days in a trail race than a road race.
How many races did you run this year?
Any races coming up?
