|Running Achievements||I ran my first marathon in February 2011 in New Orleans, LA...The Rock and Roll New Orleans. So excited to qualify for Boston on my first marathon with a 3:47. I ran the Boston Marathon in 2012(year of extreme heat) finished in 3:54. I knew I could do better providing Mother Nature cooperated. So I ran my third marathon at the Army Marathon in Killeen, TX in Apr 2013. I Won 1st in the Masters and 5th female overall with a
time of 3:31 and a PR!! Ran a BQ too!! So I was going to Boston in 2014. I was entered and started my training. About 6 weeks into training shin splints hit. They didn't want to heal. Just had to take time off and let it heal. Sadly, I couldn't run Boston in 2014. So new goal...run a 4th marathon and qualify again. I ran the Kansas City Marathon in Oct 2014. It was a hilly one but I was extremely happy to BQ again. I finished in 3:37 and won 1st in my age group. I'm going to Boston 2016!! Update...I ran Boston 2016 and finished in 3:39:04! So excited to qualify for Boston 2017!!
I've entered many half marathons(PR 1:36), numerous 10 milers(PR1:11), 10ks (PR 43:15) and 5ks (PR 20:23).
