Virginia 10 Miler

Yesterday I headed to the start line of the Virginia 10 Miler to take on the most challenging course that I've ever raced... again! And I'm not being dramatic, in an article in the Lynchburg News and Advance this morning, course record holder and former Olympian Anne Audalin called it "one of the toughest road races in the nation." And yet, people come to tackle it year after year! Read on to find out why!

Frostbite 15K

A few weekends ago I laced up with my running partner to tackle the Frostbite 15K for our first race back together since the Richmond Marathon in November. I won't lie, I was a little nervous! I'd never run this one before, and I hadn't raced since the Rock N' Roll Half Marathon in December (which I PROMISE I'm going to review soon!!). So the thought of heading out for 9.3 miles without too much training was a little stressful. BUT, I was told there would be donuts at the end... so I figured what the hell, let's do this! Read on for my full review of this fun distance!

The Hokie Half Marathon

About two weeks ago, the bestie (and her hubs) and I road tripped it up to God's country... aka Blacksburg, VA for the Hokie Half. We had a blast, and it was a welcomed change of scenery from our normal routes in Richmond, especially now that marathon training has us running them over, and over, and over, and over! It was also a nice little step down mileage-wise in between 17 and 18 mile weeks. Read on for my full review of the race... and I hope it goes without saying, but GO HOKIES!!

James River Scramble 10K

On Saturday I ran in the James River Scramble 10K. I forgot I had signed up for this race (which is part of Dominion Riverrock) way back when and when I got the e-mail last week with instructions for packet pick-up I thought about just skipping it. Boy am I glad I didn't because this race was an absolute freaking BLAST!! Have you ever had so much fun while you're running that you literally just smile the entire time? Well that was me on Saturday morning running this trail race! Read on for my full review and make sure to check it out next year!
