154 Jacksonville Bank Marathon 12/29/13 Jacksonville FL 5:55:12 Marathon 231     4/ 6 Down pour rain, weak right ankle, pulled left groin, and sciatica problem. I was nervous about a "DNF". I stayed with 6 hours Pacer, Susan Kolbinsky from the start to mile 25. I felt good and picked up my pace at the end. We were doing one minute run and one minute walk. We were running at the consistent pace. I really enjoyed the wonderful experience on the last marathon of the year.
153 Intertrust Cayman Island Marathon 12/01/13 Georgetown CYM 6:26:10 Marathon 29       It was super sunny hot humid marathon. Only 95+ marathoner. It was very lonely on the second half. the Race Organizer did a great job, water and aid station every mile. They were super enthusiastic. My right ankle hurted at mile 6 and was not running rather than hopping. The Biker/Volunteer contacted Red Cross Medical Staff at Mile 10 to help me. It was disappointed that the Medical Staff was totally unprepared to assist me. I was NOT a happy camper. I completed the whole marathon without any ankle support. I am very grateful to John, a Volunteer biked on the course with a Cooler, hanged out iced cold bottled water to runner. He biked with me for the last 5 miles to the Finish Line and provided me with the iced cold water. I would went off the course the last 2 miles if I didn't have him watched over me. He is a Life Saver!

151 Dublin Marathon 10/28/13 Dublin IRL 6:03:10 Marathon 17618       So happy the weather was better than forecasted the day before the marathon. NO Rain! It was so windy and chilly. Great support!

Loved Dublin, Irish, Music and Dance! Loved Guinness!
150 Poznan Marathon 10/13/13 Poznan POL 5:41:30 Marathon 230     3 Awesome! Happy with the orgazation. It was tough at 41K with uphill and cobbled stone course. Placed 3rd in my age group, 65-69. Missed standing on the podium. Received a lovely trophy, fuel belt, and a running book. I didn't think I would place my age. From now on, I will check it the result, because not many 65+ are running marathon. Race start and finish in front of our hotel-Sheraton Poznan Hotel. Loved the second time visiting the City. The whole City catered to marathoners. Love to return and run the 20th edition in 2019. Would love to win my age group, 70-75.
149 Kosice Peace Marathon 10/06/13 Kosice SVK 5:27:14 Marathon F98     5 I was concerned about the cut-off time at 32K. I ran so well and was 34 minutes ahead of the cut-off time. This was my PR of this year. It was a well-marked and well-supported marathon. Loved the marathon, the City, and the People. This is the oldest marathon in Europe, the 90th. The marathon is a National Pride to the People. It is the Best Marathon in Europe! I will be back to run at their 100th edition. Hope I will win my age group at 70-79.
148 Omaha Marathon 09/22/13 Omaha NE 6:41:22 Marathon 4840     2/ 2 It was an ultra for me. I ran 29.5 miles. I made a wrong turn, spent 20 minutes begging volunteer and Policeman to drive me to the spot. It went to dead ears. I turned around and ran back, went through 10K check point twice. It was the worst marathon of my marathon 144. I'm happy to get my NE done! I would be first in my age if I didn't ran the extra 3.3 miles. :-(

Thanks to spectator yelled out. Reported to RD, Charles about this. They will make effort to have a Course Marshall on that spot - three ways traffic poses risk to runners and sign was hidden underneath of a Status in this busy intersection. They did a great job for their first year. Love small race and only cater to marathoners. Well done! I'm happy to finish under 6 hours. I'm still hurting from herniated disc injury.

140 Brighton Marathon 04/14/13 Brighton GBR 5:46:19 Marathon         Great organization, lots crowd support, nice course along the Coast most of the time. Reminds me of Reykjavik Marathon in Iceland. Enjoyed our B & B very much. Ran almost two minutes faster on mile 26 because the crowd support.

134 JFK 50 mile 11/17/12 Hagerstown MD   34 mi         I was mentally and physically not prepared for the JFK 50 miler. I was running too many marathons, and didn't have time to train. My ankles were always weak. I still have a sciatica problem on my right side, my right leg and foot is still numb, so once my right ankle twisted and fell, it just kept falling. I twisted my right ankle and fell 12 times on the Appalachian Trail. I thought I knew the course description, but I was so naive about the AT. My left ankle twisted a couple of times, but I didn't fall. I was so frustrated and scared. My confidence was shrinking. My body was so intense, and just kept falling. I really appreciated all the runners who were so supportive to me on the Trail. On the Tow Path, many were so encouraging. At mile 30, I was so sleepy and just wanted to stop and curl up and go to sleep. My body was not willing to move. By the time, I told myself to get moving at mile 32, it was too late to meet the cut off time at mile 34, Weverton, and took a DNF. I swore that I wouldn't never run the JFK again. I am not a Trail Runner, and I don't like the trails.

129 Chicago Marathon 10/07/12 Chicago IL 6:26:58 Marathon J35219 36431 16089 131 I enjoyed Chicago Marathon the second time around after six years. My time was two hours slower than last time. I was happy that I finished it, and NO pain. I enjoyed making friends and socialized with other runners from different countries. I was frustrated with my injury. Most of all, I was not happy about my performance the past two years. I hope to return in 2018, at age 70, to set my new age PR.
128 Maine Marathon 09/30/12 Portland ME   Marathon         D.N.S. Canceled due to sciatica pain.
127 New Hampshire Marathon 09/29/12 Bristol NH 7:17:37 Marathon 19       It was the most humbling marathon experience! Under the worried eyes of my mother, sisters, a friend/massage therapist and my husband, I ran the 20th New Hampshire Marathon. I said to myself, I will give it a try, I will stop if I am in pain. No big deal. I mentioned to the RD that I will be participating the marathon with hiking poles. He assured me that there is no time limit, it is a friendly small race, and they help every one to achieve their goal. Race day was cool and cloudy, a perfect day for a marathon and to go for a PR. The course was very hilly, lots of winding up and down hills, steep hills, and no spectators. My body was tight and uncomfortable in the morning, the hiking poles reminded me not to run, only walk, use them to support me on the up and down hills, and to rest if I was in pain. The downside of the poles was that I didn't have free hands for water and refuel. I had to lay down the polesto get water and fuel. I jogged a little on down hills. Felt great. I was very careful, not to trip over the poles. At mile 26 there was a steep uphill, then a sharp right turn, then a slide down hill. I got so emotional at the last 0.2 mile, my eyes got wet, and could not hold back the tears. I could hear cheering by the race organizers and RD, a sharp right turn, 200 meters to the finish line, I held the poles under my arm pit, and jogged to the finish line. It was the longest marathon that I ever ran. It was the most spiritual marathon in my marathon journey.
126 Omaha Marathon 09/23/12 Omaha NE   Marathon         D.N.S. Canceled due to sciatica pain.
125 American Discovery Trail Marathon 09/03/12 Colorado Springs CO 6:23:03 Marathon         It was one of my worst marathons. I was tired, my body ached all over, didn't like to run on the trail with rocks and sand. Stopped several times to take the rock out of my shoes. It got hot and dusty. The course was tough with step uphills and downhills. I'm happy to finish it!

123 The Friendly Massey Marathon 07/15/12 Massey ON 5:57:53 Marathon 738     1 It was a long tiring drive. We stayed one night in Toronto both ways. There was very heavy traffic in Toronto! It was the most friendly and well organized marathon. It was hot, humid and sunny. It was itching with several mosquito bites. I placed first in my age group, 60 - 69. I received a lovely handmade wooden stool and a large jug of Canadian maple syrup. I enjoyed meeting new marathon friends includeing the Female Overall Winner, Betty Annala, and her friend, Karen Dahl. They were inspired by me, I started running at almost age 50, with my first marathon at age 52, and now at age 64 I have run 121 marathons. Karen gave me a lovely beaded necklace with a running girl pendent and a charms bracelet with running girl. Karen is doing a lot of charity work to help children in Kenya by selling her beaded jewelry.
