JAVELINA JUNDRED 100 MILES, Fountain Hills AZ 10/23/10 - Special Inspiration "my dad" will be cheering me on to the finish. When I was just a newborn my Dad was sent to the front lines of the Vietnam war. He bravely fought for our country for 2 years. He was a strong survivor that I am thankful for his strength to come home to me and be my father. When I'm struggling during a race I think of what he went through to get home safely to me, this get's me through many rough spots. "See you at the finish line Dad!"

Green Swamp 50 mile, Dade City Florida- 1st overall female!!! 10:49 February
Land between the Lakes- was going to run 38 mile, dropped to the marathon, twisted my knee. Luckily not major damage. March
Kettle Morraine 100K- paced myself poorly, would have been fine if it was a 50 mile race. Toughed it in to the finish.
Gnaw Bone, Indiana 50k- Finished 1st in my age group. I was going to run the 50 mile race, was pacing myself well but did not realize it was close to the cut-off. Missed it by a minute...but on that muddy course I didn't mind coming in to finish the 50k. Just meant I got to start partying early!
Devils Lake, Wisconsin 50 mile- I followed the course markers but someone had put 2 ribbons on a corner that they weren't suppose to be. Many people made the turn and started to run the course the wrong direction...a lot of them did run it backwards and were DQ. I realized my mistake and turned around. Ended up running about 56-58 miles that day. But finished!
Howl at the Moon 8 hour ultra, Danville IL- 39.98 miles. Finished 1st Master Female It was a very hot day and a lot of people were dropping out. I had to walk one entire lap. I was not digesting my water and my stomach blew up like I was pregnant. Finally I threw up gallons of red liquid. I thought I was done, but relieved from throwing up I started hammering out the miles again!
Marguette 50 mile, Michigan- 2nd overall female. Really beautiful course. I was running really well when I zoned out and kept following a logging trail for almost 3 miles...bummer...had to turn around and go back. I knew I had been 2nd female. I was glad when I found out I hadn't been passed.
Javelina Jundred 100 miles- 28:10 Awesome race- great day- fabulous pacers...party! It is possible to run 100 miles and enjoy it. Love this course!
I don't remember my times for all these. I will update later as I look them up. I'm just happy to be able to run them!
