January 21 – #TwitterRoadRace (Virtual 5K)- 30:45

           I did this run on my treadmill, why is treadmill running so hard for me?! Ugh. Oh well, fun to think of others running today too in this virtual race.


April – CBI Hustle For Hunger 5km – 27:17

Unprepared for a short, fast race! A fun run with former co-workers, lots of  visiting.

May 29 – Saskatchewan Marathon 10 km – 56:38 (51st of 241 females age 20-29) **Personal Best!**

As a newbie runner this was my first 10 km race.  It was an amazing experience to run with so many other runners along such a beautiful route.

June 18 – Bridge City Boogie 5 km – 25:25

This would be a new personal best for me in the 5km… however… it wasn’t a certified course and my GPS said the route was only 4.85 km… so I don’t count it as my best, just aim to beat it on a certified course next time!

July – Discovery Dash

               This was a fun event for kids to promote physical activity.  My 3 kids, aged 23 months, 23 months and 3 at the time had a blast running in their 50m event and getting their medals afterwards. My 3 year old daughter also ran in the mile and was the youngest runner to actually complete the race. She was the last one out there but was adamant that she was doing all her laps to finish.  I walked beside her as she jogged and all the volunteers gave her a standing ovation at the finish line. She can’t wait for “her race” next year!

August 14 – River Run Classic 5 km – 25:24 **Personal Best!** (6th of 21 females age 20-29)

Did it! Certified course and beat my Boogie time! Hooray! This still stands as my 5km best time.

September 24 – Miles For Smiles 5 km – 25:40

            I did some hardcore speedwork in preparation for this race in a quest to come in under 25 minutes.  In the end I was burnt out and over trained.  I went out way too fast and it killed me.  I know now that trying to fit in such serious runs during harvest time on a farm just doesn’t work. I still enjoyed this race and appreciate everyone who pledged me to help raise money for the Children’s Hospital of Saskatchewan.  This is a charity near and dear to my heart!

November 1 – Day Of The Dead Fun Run 10 km – 1:17:20

This was not only my first trail run ever, but also my first trail race, and it was run AT NIGHT! Runners all wore headlamps and the course was lit with glow sticks. The course wound around through the trees, resulting in runners’ lights bobbing past 5 feet away, even though they were on a completely different section of the course.  I couldn’t believe how slow I had to go just to keep my footing in the dark, but this race was a blast and I can’t wait for next year!


August 15 – River Run Classic 5 km – 25:55 (4th of 29 females age 20-29)  **Personal Best!**

             My first race! I was ecstatic at the finish line.  This was my first running event and I couldn’t believe how much faster I could run in a race than in training.  Such a happy memory!

September – Miles For Smiles 5 km
