Race Results

I used to track my training on websites such as DailyMile and Running Log, but have since started exclusively using Garmin Connect which makes it easy to track all those little running details and metrics, automatically.

2014, the year I completed the Twin Cities Marathon on a “long run” of 6 miles… (those pesky injuries might keep you from traditional training, but not always from a race for which you’ve already registered).

All of the races…
For a sport that is relatively low cost to enter into (good shoes, end of story), it can add up as you fall into the lure and comfort of moisture-wicking apparel, gadgets, more shoes,  and race registration. I ‘solved’ that issue by making running a priority (in theory and some practice that means I don’t spend a lot on other things) and working a couple weekends a month at a local running store. ATHLINKS is a neat website that provides any runner a comprehensive list of all their race results posted online (here is my list of results).
