Charlotte Spartan Sprint

Charlotte Spartan Sprint

The Charlotte Spartan Sprint, by far one of the muddiest Spartans I’ve ever done! I had never raced in Charlotte before and I heard this was a runners course so I just had to do it! This race took place just outside of Charlotte at Porter Farms in Concord, North Carolina. It was quite the drive down there and took around 6 hours from Northern Virginia! My friends and I rented an Airbnb place for the weekend. This was my…

St. Mary’s Triathlon

St. Mary’s Triathlon

  My first Triathlon for the year took place on June 17th in St. Mary’s, Maryland! This was the first annual St. Mary’s Triathlon located in a former colonial town that was Maryland’s first colonial settlement and capital. This race sold out pretty early, so I was lucky to get a spot when I signed up for the waiting list! Over 600 athletes competed in this race for both the international and sprint triathlon (a sprint is half the distance of…

Rock ‘n’ Roll DC Half Marathon

Rock ‘n’ Roll DC Half Marathon

My first Half Marathon for the 2017 year and probably one of the coldest half marathons I’ve ever run! This was my second time running the Rock n’ Roll DC Half Marathon and I enjoyed last year’s race so I came back again this year! Packet Pick up was located at the same location at the DC Armory. I did not stay very long and briefly walked through everywhere. I was eager to get back home to make sure I…

Greek Peak Winter Spartan Sprint

Greek Peak Winter Spartan Sprint

The First ever US Spartan Winter Sprint! and boy was it a cold one!! I could not believe that Spartan decided to do a Winter race and I am glad I was able to participate in the first winter event! This race took place on March 4th at the Greek Peak Mountain Resort in upstate New York, located near Cortland. I carpooled with friends the day prior and finally learned the definition of a ‘snow squall’. You don’t see these very…

Savage Race Maryland

Savage Race Maryland

Savage Race Maryland! An OCR (obstacle course race) unlike any other race I’ve done! I have grown to love OCR’s and wanted to branch out to see what other obstacle course races had to offer. I had just recently placed as 4th overall female in the DC Spartan Sprint competitive division and was eager to compete in another OCR! A friend told me about Savage Race so I signed up for the pro division. Savage Race features 25+ obstacles with…

Massive Medal Half Marathon and CNU Alumni 5k

My second year running the Massive Medal Half Marathon! Last year’s race went really well and as a huge medal fanatic, I just had to come back for another massive medal! This time I signed up for the Captains Challenge which is running the Massive Medal Half Marathon and then the CNU Alumni 5k for a whopping 16.2 miles! It was very frigid out that morning. This was my first race this year that I ever ran in long sleeves and I…

Rock ‘n’ Roll Virginia Beach Half Marathon

Rock ‘n’ Roll Virginia Beach Half Marathon

Virginia Beach it’s good to be back! It has been a yearly tradition to have this race during Labor day weekend. I ran the Rock ‘N’ Roll Virginia Beach Half Marathon last year and was so frustrated that this race put me in crutches, so I made it a goal to come back this year injury free! (and thankfully I did just that!) I had just run the DC Spartan Sprint the weekend prior which was one of my best…
