Las Vegas Rock and Roll Marathon 12/04/11 Las Vegas WA 3:29 Marathon   341/ 3766 39 10 This was a fun trip and was really awesome running at night down the strip. It just got kind of crazy when the marathoners joined the half marathoners.

Love seeing all the Marathon Maniacs out there. Enjoyed the carpool with Phil, Eivind, Spooner, and Randy. Plus, the Thai food afterwards was the best!! A classic marathon for the Pacific Northwest.
Seattle Marathon 11/28/10 Seattle WA 3:37:53 Marathon     58/ 849 14/ 147 Another Seattle Marathon under my belt. So thankful for the beautiful weather! Loved the pizza at Zeeks with the Maniacs!
Seafair Marathon 07/09/06   WA 3:38 Marathon     18   18th woman. Didn't look at my watch until the last 3 miles which is very unusual for me!
Boston Marathon 04/20/15 Boston MA 3:38:22 Marathon 14983 12883/ 26610 3961/ 12022 595/ 1985 I tried something different on this one. I ran using my heart rate only. I didn't even look at my pace or time until the end of the marathon. Using the results from a VO2 Max Test I ran the first hour at a 140ish heart rate and then bumped up from there every hour. I have to say I felt so great doing it this way and could have gone out dancing afterward but I also ran my slowest marathon since a long time and my slowest Boston time (out of 4). The weather was also wet...rainy, windy, and a bit nippy. It didn't slow the crowds down though! Went with Phil, Sierra, Jennifer, Rhett, & Chase Elton. Had a blast!
Portland Marathon 10/01/06 Portland OR 3:39 Marathon          
Seattle Marathon 11/25/12 Seattle WA 3:41:14 Marathon         Was very happy to complete 3 marathons in 4 days and finish with this one being my fastest out of the 3. Thanks Doug Mowbray for hanging with me during the first half. The last half I just let it go and ran it as hard as the legs could. Great advice from Tony Seabolt. Had a great time and feel awesome to accomplish this goal.

Tacoma City Marathon 05/03/15 Tacoma WA 3:49:33 Marathon 519       Was the 3:50 (8:45 pace) PACER. Always enjoy this marathon and all the diversity we get to run through. Paul Grove ran we me the entire time and we chatted up a storm from start to finish. We took a few others with us as well. A great day weather wise, sunny but not too hot or cold. Looking forward to it again next year.
Ghost of Seattle 11/24/12 Seatte WA 3:50 Marathon         2nd marathon in 3 days. Felt pretty good and was able to pick it up the last half which I was very happy about. Had never done this course and really enjoy the course and support. Loved being able to eat all the yummy food at the end and ice the legs in Lake WA.

Ironman Cour d'alene 06/27/10   ID 3:54 Marathon         Always a challenge to run a marathon after that 112 mile bike ride!
In Unity We Run 11/02/13 Kent WA 3:54:22 Marathon   10/ 62 2   This was a very WINDY marathon. Toward the end the winds got up to 58 mph. It was difficult even running in a straight line! There were also branches coming off of the trees overhead and dust flying in my eyes. What made it fun though was running the way out with Phil and then running the rest of the marathon with Mark and Eivind. I also got to see many of the regulars out there which always makes it fun. At least we missed the rain!!
Tacoma City Marathon 05/04/14 Tacoma WA 3:55 Marathon         Was the 3:55 PACER. Love pacing this run and hope to do it again next year!!
Tacoma City Marathon 05/05/13 Tacoma WA 3:55 Marathon         2nd year pacing the 3:55 marathon. Did this one on the new course. Weather was a warm one; near 80 degrees when we finished! Loved all the maniacs out there and happy to be part of this amazing marathon. :-)

Loop the Lake 12/29/12 Renton WA 4:07 Marathon         A great training run put on by The Balanced Athlete. Enjoyed seeing all maniacs out there and a great way to finish off the 2012 season.
Waddle Waddle 11/22/12 Seattle WA 4:07 Marathon         Help back on this one since it was the first time I was trying 3 marathons in 4 days. My run time was 3:55 but took a little longer on the breaks.
Seattle Marathon 11/26/06 Seattle WA 4:09 Marathon         First time I tried the run/walk method with a friend. Couldn't stand it! Ended up just running it out hard in the end but couldn't make up that much time.
Ironman St. George 05/07/11 St. George UT 4:19 Marathon         The most hilliest marathon I have ever done. Not too much fun after a 1.2 mile swim and a 112 mile bike ride! Not to mention the close to 100 degrees temp!
Mt. Si Ultra Marathon 04/19/09 North Bend WA 4:31 Marathon     3    
Madison Marathon 07/28/13 Ennis MT 4:33 Marathon 248 15/ 74 3/ 24   This marathon is the Highest Road Marathon in America and perhaps the world. Approximately 9,600 feet. Was in an open field on a dirt road with lots of rollers. Was one of the most unique and challenging marathons I had ever done. I won't forget this one anytime soon!!

Gorge Waterfalls 03/30/13 Columbia River Gorge OR 5:59:15 50 km   162/ 281     This was a challenging run! Lots of up hills and down hills that killed my legs. Definitely was beautiful but I sure was sore for awhile after this one.
