2017 Running Race Report

2017 Race Results here — better late than never, not a lot of narrative, but some great photos and fun memories!  It was a crazy year because of dropping out of Boston because of my knee (DNS).  I put it together training and kept it light but fun.  My focus was on cross country to finish the year, but had an amazing race at both Mt Washington and Bridge of Flowers.  I love to post race results because they motivate me for the future.  2018 is shaping up to be my year!

\”People need to get to their start line.  You are not fixed by events that happen in your life.  Whatever that start line may be you need to get again, have fun and go out and do it”  – MacKenzie Gray, Boston Marathon 2014

Highlight of the year was my 1st place finish for the New England USTAF Cross Country Series for my age group.  I was dedicated to trail running and showing up strong each event, and not tripping!  All in all 2017 was a good year, shorter runs and not as much mileage, but still some great results and team fun with the Western Mass Distance Project

Love the holiday spirit – love this team – love this community. I talked to a girl at the beginning of the race that commented how she loves seeing us all in uniform and you can tell that the positive vibe we share in this running community really makes a difference. I am a proud wolf today. Thanks for being you — all of you. \"\"<3 Happy Holidays!
