The Year In Review

This post has been in the works for quite some time and I’m excited to have the opportunity to give you a peak at what happened in 2016. This year has been an incredible year of races. Many firsts and accomplishments, but I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the support of my friends, my family and this amazing running community. I’m warning you…it’s long, but so many memories to share so you can see just how this year unfolded.

It was a big year. It was my best year of racing to date ending up with a PR in the half and the full. Don’t get me wrong the road was bumpy at times. A lot of sweat, many tears and a lot of self doubt. Through it all….it was a year that I will never forget.

In summary…here are the totals:

5K – 4
6K – 2
10K – 4
Half – 6
10 Miler – 1
5 Miler – 1
12 Miler – 1
Tri – 1
Duathlon – 2
