I’ve been doing triathlons, running races, and assorted swim/bike/run events for years and despite a significant decrease in events since having kids, it’s still something I really enjoy. There are a handful of races that I never wrote about, but for the most part this is also an accurate reflection of events I’ve done over the years. (Most of the pre-2008 lists are incomplete.)
- Aliens vs. Astronauts 5K (3/19/16)
Found out in late December 2014 that I was pregnant and due in September so once again, racing was non-existent.
- Yuri’s Night 5K (4/18/15)
More unforeseen circumstances derailed my running plans in the second half of the year.
- St. Thomas 5K (10/4/14) – Emma’s 1st Kid’s K! – Didn’t blog about my run.
- Lunar Rendezvous 5K (7/19/14)
- Yuri’s Night 5K (4/5/14) – Didn’t blog.
Making a slow (um, REAL slow) but determined return to racing…
- Clear Lake International Sprint Tri (8/24/13)
- Sylvan Beach Sprint Triathlon (6/9/13)
- TriGirl Super Sprint (5/12/13)
- Seabrook Lucky Trails Marathon Relay (3/17/13)
Found out at the beginning of December 2011 that I was pregnant and due in August! So racing in 2012 was pretty sparse.
- Space City 10-Miler Relay (10/14/12)
- Yuri’s Night 5K (4/7/12) – Walked it since I was pregnant. Didn’t blog about it.
Not a great year due to several unforeseen circumstances, but any year that involves races is still a good one!
- RunGirl Half Marathon – Relay (12/11/11) – Speed-walked my half of the race since I’d found out only a week before that I was pregnant!
- Y Freedom Sprint Tri (6/26/11)
- Sylvan Beach Du (6/12/11)
- Silverlake Sprint Tri (5/15/11)
- Yuri’s Night 5K (4/16/11)
- Aramco Houston Half Marathon (1/30/11)
The first part of the year was average, but in September I started training with the goal of setting a new half marathon PR at the Houston Half Marathon in January 2011. It was the first time in a couple years that I’d seriously trained for anything. Little did I know I’d totally smash my old PR almost 2 months ahead of schedule!

Between planning a wedding and building a house, my participation in races suffered. I had an annoying number of DNS (did not start) races, but managed to cross a few finish lines.
- USA Space City 10-Miler Relay (10/11/09)
- Y Freedom Sprint Tri (6/28/09)
- Yuri’s Night 5K (4/4/09)
- Rockets Run 5K (1/31/09)
- Aramco Houston Half Marathon (1/18/09)
This was unquestionably the best year of my triathlon career, both in terms of number of races and order of finish, and I’d love to repeat it sometime.
