Hartford Half Marathon Oct 8, 2022
Another half marathon in the books! Signed up late but supporting the Academy of General Dentistry Foundation is a very worthy mission ! I stayed in my zones well throughout. It was exciting to see how my rowing training translated into an amazing time. 5th in age and my time was a 1:44 under a 8 min Mile pace. I met so many amazing people today on this team. Yo-yo and her friends and Sarita’s family and fellow AGD Supporters! What a great weekend. Thank you to all my donors. My fundraising efforts totaled $650! So many successes at this race!
Loved wearing my Picky Bar gear and being fueled by the bars as I made my way to my first summit since my accident in the PNW. I was with my sister in law (Sara) and amazing big brother Gavin as we made our way to Mailbox Peak in North Bend, WA. We just caught a gorgeous view of Mt Rainier and were eager to make our way to the snowy summit before we ran a trail marathon back to our car. Thank you Picky team for being part of my recovery encouragement - so thankful to be part of the AmBADASSador crew!
This is me and "Siri" last summer. I named my bike after Siri Lindley after hearing her interview in a podcast last fall. I was inspired by her to take a leap of faith and leave my running career behind and give my everything to become the first Finnish triathlete in the Olympics. So pretty much the day after listening to that podcast I went and bought my first road bike and the rest is history!
