With winter officially arriving, it’s been fun to look back on my Fall and (early) Winter race seasons. While I’m taking a couple weeks off this winter (which I’m in the midst of recovery right now) — Fall was fun, just as I trained for.
Since September, I’ve completed 9 races — 4 of those half marathons and 6 with close to 100% humidity. While the extended summer temps was a bear for outdoor races, I also started trail running, culminating into my most difficult (but most awesome!) race to date. Many of these races I intend to repeat in 2017, and overall I had positive experiences at each — you know, despite all that humidity.
In case you missed my recaps, here’s my list:
Madrid Miler 5-Mile Race
IMT Des Moines Half Marathon
To Grandmother’s House We Go Trail 10k
Hillbilly Hike Half
Living History Farms Race
Sycamore 8 Trail Race
The Hitchcock Experience 13.1
