Hello! This is just a review of all the races I have run, as well as any upcoming races I have planned!

A few notes:

  • I am not a particularly fast runner and I am not a long distance runner. Running is very hard for me because I have a lot of problems with my calves. (I have been diagnosed with compartment syndrome which is a fancy way of saying that running makes my calves extremely tight and short of surgery there isn’t too much I can do about it.)
  • I know that I will never be extremely fast or a marathon runner, and that it 100% fine with me. I do what I can and I am proud of what I do.
  • I run because it makes me happy and keeps me healthy.

    I noticed you forgot (or purposely omitted) the 2010 Muddy Buddy and Monster Dash (aka worst race ever).

    • I know! I didn’t have the blog then!! Maybe I could just add pictures. I actually totally forgot about the Monster Dash. I don’t think we even have one picture from that day!
