Another New Year: 2015 Results & 2016 Goals

2015 was a great year for me for Health and Fitness.   I lost 20 lbs and I ended up doing 8 in person races (results listed below).  Mike and I signed up for Hogwarts running club, so I also ended up doing many “virtual races”, and even got my family to do our own little fun run for Thanksgiving.

2015 Race Results:

  • Resolution Run (5K) – Dec 31(2014) – This one was COLD and icy…so my time was not great 50 minutes roughly.
  • Unleash the She (10K) –  April 26 –  Rochester – DONE! Finish Time: 1:34:05
  • Med City Marathon Relay – (2nd leg – 7.2 miles)   May 24 Rochester Finish Time: 1:46:38(=
  • Hastings Glo Run (8K) July 16  -5 Miles Finish Time1:19:46
  • Med City Fall (10K – 6.21 miles) – Sept 20th – Rochester MN  – Finish Time 1:29:15
  • Women Run the Cities (10 Mile) – St Paul – Sept 27th – Finish Time 2:44:40
  • Monster Dash (13.1 Miles) – October 31 – St Paul – Finish Time 3:23:04
  • Choholic Frolic (5K) – St Paul – Finish Time 42:45


My Plans for 2016 are to transition over into doing a couple of Sprint Triathlons this summer.  I may end up doing more running in the fall again.  I do like doing races it keeps me motivated to keep moving.    2016 is off to a slow start for me because I have been derailed by illness.  I am starting to feel better though, so am hoping to get back into a normal training routine again soon so I will be ready for my first race.   Below is my list of in person races for the first part of this year.  I may do some additional runs in the Fall, and there may be a few more races thrown in of shorter distances.  This is what I have in my head so far.   I will still be doing virtual races as well.

2016 Goal Races:

  • Feb 21 – Disney Princess Half Marathon – (13.1M) – Feb 21 – Planned
  • March 5 – Hypothermic Half Marathon – (13.1M) – Rochester, MN – Planned
