2011That was a good running year for me, I learned so much.
It was my 2nd year of running and racing and I feel like I have made progress. That is a good feeling.
17 Races this year:
- 5K: 6
- 10K: 6
- Half Marathon: 5
- I improved my times in all 3 distances.
- Dean Karnazes
- Jeff Galloway
- Drew Carey
- Keith Urban
Race: I ran my first Half Marathon! I made a lot of mistakes, wrong clothes, wrong shoes, wrong fuel, wrong pace, you name it I did it... but I finished.
Races: 10K in Pasadena and
I ran with Dean Karnazes 5k that ended up being 8k because we got lost in the trail!
This was a great experience! What an inspiration this guy is!
Race: Susan G Komen 5k Race for the Cure.
Saddest month of 2011.
This guy ruined my monthand I cried.............
but I am over it now. Be afraid of the Blue Machine....
WE still have THE Sportsman of the year and Arizona still has...hmmm whiskers? Meow!
Race: 10k Race Seal Beach
and I went to the Royal Wedding...
just kidding...I had to decline: no babysitter...they were crushed of course.
Race: Half Marathon #2: OC Half Marathon.
Took 7 minutes off my first one. I did a lot better in every aspects of the race compare to what I had done in Carlsbad except for the finish....I ended up in the Medic tent...
I celebrated 10 yrs of being married to Bill and I tried my wedding dress on...turns out it was a bit big!!
I went back home to Quebec!
Race: La Descente Royale 10k (pics here.) That was my 10K PR. 1:00:00. I am still chasing a sub 1h...2012 goal....This was my first time racing in my hometown, my family was there and I ran with one of my best friend..it was really nice!
I had my 25th High School Reunion in Quebec. That was a awesome night! I am so happy I went!

Oh! Remember the family I mentioned in my previous post? I found them yesterday!
I got to give them all the groceries that we bought for them!
I was so happy to be able to do that. It is a good feeling to help people even if it is just a little.
