2016 was a huge year for us, we have been so blessed! “Be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.” 2 Chronicles 15:7 ♡
I started out the year running the Dopey Challenge in Disney. This was one of the best races I have ever ran. So much fun, I would do this challenge every year if I could. 48.6 miles in 4 days.
In February I ran back to back marathons with this crazy girl. Phoenix Marathon followed by the Little Rock Marathon.
In April we started our triathlon journey with a Spirt Tri.
I did the Flying Pig 4 Way Challenge with Extra Cheese + The Pump and Run. 5k, 10k, marathon, and a bench press challenge.
June was a busy month. We did an olympic distance tri and our first bike race, the Tulsa Tough. We also did a half Ironman.
70.3 miles in the hot, windy, and hilly Lubbock.
My first international race, the Lululemon half marathon in Vancouver, Canada. This was such a fun race!
October, we did our first Ironman!!!!! Whoa, so much hard work and training went into this.
140.6 miles of craziness. Louisville was tough and hilly but we got through and finished together.
“It may be impossible, nevertheless, God can do the impossible.” Luke 18:27
Ended the year with the Philly Marathon. I ran several local races that I did not include in this review. I can’t wait to see what 2017 has in store for me.
