On Sat Mar 10, 2018, I ran my first 100km trail race and placed 5th for females and 10th overall, shattering my goal of breaking 15 hours with an official time of 13 hours, 48 minutes, and 34 seconds! It was in San Angelo, TX, hosted by Trail Racing Over Texas (TROT) at the San… Continue reading My First 100km Trail Run
So as you may know, this weekend I competed in and completed my first ever 100km race in Trail Racing Over Texas’s Crazy Desert Trail Run in San Angelo State Park! It was totally epic and I am planning a hugely thorough blog post devoted to it that will cover my nutrition before/during/after the race,… Continue reading Guest Blog Posts: From My 100km Race Crew!

According to my RunKeepeer, I’ve put in more than 1,400 miles on the pavement since I made… Continue reading Coming Soon: 50 miles

That’s the kind of race you try to survive. 5 days and I finally feel fully recovered from one of the most difficult, yet incredible runs of my life thus far – one that I am certain will remain in this elite category of races for the rest of my days: The Tejas Trails… Continue reading My Second Ultramarathon
What an awesome weekend! The Knights won yet another Regional title and I survived yet another marathon! I’m going go ahead to put this marathon in the ‘Bad@$$ Category’ on my resume. Seriously, it was crazy. Sadly, I have hardly any race pics because my phone was triple zip-locked in my hydration vest due to the… Continue reading 2016 San Antonio Marathon
