My Lucky Seven 2014 Races

With only a few weeks left in 2014, I’ve been reflecting on the year and starting to make plans for 2015. Today’s Tuesdays On The Run theme is “Show Off Your Bling,” so what better time to bask in the glow of my 2014 races? 

2014 Races
This year turned out to be a really great year of running for me. I became involved with Moms Run This Town and met women who would brave the cold and the rain for company on long runs. They taught me how great track workouts can be and even made hill repeats fun. I didn’t have to take any time off for injuries, and I ran seven great races.

I started the year with a bang earning a PR at the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run, and went on to earn course PRs at the GW Parkway Classic, Lawyers Have Heart 10K, and Army 10 Miler! I shook up my routine with Ragnar training, and ended up loving the Ragnar craziness so much that I’ve already signed up for a 2015 team! 

My first race on the calendar for 2015 is the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run on April 12 (have you entered the lottery yet?), followed two weeks later by the GW Parkway Classic. I know I can’t count on another year of PRs, but I am counting on another great year of running. 

Was 2014 a good year for you? 

What are you looking forward to in 2015?

  1. 2014 was a rough year….lots of races, lots of deferrments and a few DNS. A rough marathon too. I’m hoping to turn all of that around this year!

  2. Congrats on a great year of running!! Your medals look great! I signed up for the lottery for the Cherry Blossom, hoping that I’ll get in–first timer! I’m so envious of you doing Ragnar–that’s definitely a dream of mine!

    Yay for a great year! 2014 was awesome for the first half and then kind of fell apart, but I have no one to blame but myself LOL. Fingers crossed I’ll be running Cherry Blossom and then GW…

    Yay you! Such a great year of running!

    2014 was an AWESOME year for me since I quit my job and launched my own business. I am grateful every single day when I wake up and have my own business to attend to. Nutrition and fitness have moved to the sidelines a little, so that’s one of the things I’m looking forward to improving on in the new year!

    Congrats on a great year!! 2014 was good to me. If you asked me this time last year where I would be running wise – I would have never imagined how I progressed to this point.
