Here's a more in depth look at the year in review:
The second of the race series 5K I felt very strong throughout and finished just shy of my earlier in the season PB. Coach Michelle told me if it had been a straighter course I'd surely have seen a PB.
HALF MARATHON / RELAY:
Despite swearing on the STWM course that I was done with half marathons after three strikes in 2016, I've put a lot of thought into what I think it would take for me to achieve one. I've looked into the different courses and will try just one more (I know, a runner's famous last words) as a goal race. I will also be doing the Niagara Falls Women's Half Marathon, but this will be an event that is focused on women and friends and the amazing race course. I'm also an ambassador which makes it so fun to really learn about a race! I'm totally excited to be part of a team of 12 runners doing a two day, one night relay from Cobourg to Niagara Falls with the Ragnar Series.
10K, 8K & 5K:
I'm hoping to take on the 8K and 5K distances again this year. I've looked at a few races and have a couple possibles narrowed down. I've also accepted an ambassadorship for the Achilles 5K, so again, maybe "We'll see" what happens!
10K? This is my most raced and possibly most struggled with distance. I know it takes a certain course and the right day for me to have a chance at ever improving my current PB.
Short and sweet:
Just after posting this recap I signed up to be an Ontario Master's Athlete. The season starts with indoor track and field races. Last winter I had the chance to watch and cheer for Michelle as she raced this series and even broke an amazing record! Let's just say it was the inspiration I needed to sign up myself. This is all very new, so we will see how it goes!
And of course still organizing and participating in tons of fun runs and events with the amazing JPsTeam!
