June 25th marked my 9th completed half marathon in Brooks Adrenaline shoes! The Seattle Rock n Roll Half Marathon is a course I know well from previous runs. The course is a near-straight shot from Tukwila to Seattle. This time I ran with my friend Marnie. It was her first half marathon and she participated as a fundraiser for cancer research. The finish time was one of my slowest at 2:26:45, but it was worth it to run with a friend on her first race.

The course for 2012 will be a loop course in Seattle – a nice change!

November 28, 2010 marked my 7th official half marathon in my favorite Brooks Adrenaline running shoes. One thing was different about this one, though: I walked it instead of running. Other than hiking, I don’t think I’ve ever walked 13.1 miles. Despite not running, my legs were still tired afterward! (more…)

Half marathon #6 for me was the Super Jock ‘n Jill Half Marathon in Woodinville on September 6, 2010 (in Brooks Adrenaline shoes, of course!!). The takeaways from this race were the oversized neon green race shirts and that the time was kept incorrectly. (more…)

I ran my first-ever trail run on August 7, 2010 in a rockin’ pair of Brooks Adrenaline ASR trail shoes: The Grand Ridge Trail Run half marathon! It took me an hour more than my usual half marathon time. The terrain was very steep and hilly – and dirty. I was probably one of the slowest people (not having trained for a trail run!) at 3:08:00, but it was a fun adventure and good excuse to relax for the rest of the day. : )

On June 26, I completed my 4th half marathon in my favorite Brooks Adrenaline running shoes: Rock n Roll Seattle Half Marathon. This was my second time running the event. This time, I participated with Tiffany, Ryan, and Olaf (full marathon). I came in at a time of 2:01:54. Last year, I ran the event with my awesome buddy Eric (see photo). It’s a fun community event, but the bands and the post-run schwag have never been very impressive. :/

On November 29, 2009, I ran my third half-marathon, the Seattle Marathon half (2:02:42). My first was the Kirkland Half Marathon (2:04:05) in May 2009, followed by the Rock n Roll Seattle half in June 2009. All of my runs have been done wearing my favorite Brooks Adrenaline running shoes. Brooks Adrenaline are the Best running shoe I have ever tried: they aren’t too narrow, they have nice support (and room for orthodics) and they are SO light weight!

It was difficult to train for the run due to our international business travel, and my coursework for the Master of Communication in Digital Media program at the University of Washington.

Fortunately, I had fun coworkers, Tiffany and Oona, to run with, despite the cold November weather. It is a notoriously hilly course, but we lucked out with mostly-dry weather. In previous years, there has been snow during this run!
