As you can see, I really love racing the marathon. I have run a ton more 5k and 10ks but most of them were years ago and times would be irrelevant. Plus, I clearly excel in the longer distances. I like running, but hate racing 5ks. Probably because I suck at them, haha, but still. I am trying to get my 5k time under 20 minutes, which will be a must to achieve my final goal of qualifying for the Olympic Marathon Trials. I know I need to focus on shorter distances to build a better speed base. I’m a work in progress my friends 🙂

      • I will be running the half…. but I’m no where near your domination in distance running. I barely made seeded status! I’m working on it though… I’ve only got one marathon, two half’s and a couple years of running under my belt.

        • That sounds exactly like me when I first started running… you’ll be dominating the distance before you know it! I’m doing the 15k and 5k, so won’t be out there Sunday. E-mail me if you ever want to meet up for a run 🙂

  1. That makes me happy! Please do! I need running partners terribly… whenever I ask people to run with me they call me insane. You know how it is… I will have to take you up on that!

  2. Hi Heather!! Your blog is so motivating! I’ve actually been thinking of competing myself! I really appreciate what you do here. I would love your feedback on our blog and activewear line. I think it would resonate with you. Keep up the good work! <3
