Race PRs

Back in 2015 I wrote a post listing my race PRs. I've thought of writing an updated post multiple times and swore I had. But when I searched back through I couldn't find one, so I'd say it's about time to update that post! I listed pregnant and postpartum PRs in that post because that was the phase of life I was in, but I'm not going to include them here. Although I'm proud of what I was able to do while pregnant and soon after giving birth, those times won't change because I'll never be back there. So I'll let them be documented in that old post. This fall season I'm hoping to update my 10k and 15k PRs. I feel like I'm stronger and in better shape than I was in 2016, but so far my speedwork hasn't exactly shown that. Although my tempos are faster than what I was running back then. So we'll see what this fall season has in store! I'm excited to ramp up and kick off the racing season here in a couple weeks at the Corndog Challenge 5k.

18:27 Cross Country (2007 MSSU Stampede)
19:18 Road (2019 St. Patrick's Day 5k)

41:49 (2016 Zoo Run 10k)

1:05:19 (2016 Tulsa Run)
Fun fact: The Tulsa Run gives out special mugs for women who finish under 70 minutes and men who finish under 60. I've run the race 3 times and won 3 mugs. I plan to make that 4 this year and maybe can even pull off a PR!

Half Marathon:
1:30:41 (2019 Golden Driller Half Marathon)

3:25:27 (2018 Route 66 Marathon)

Official Beer Mile:
8:42 (2019 Rootin Tootin Beer Mile)

Ugly Sweater Beer Mile:
6:01 (2018)


  1. I enjoyed reading this summary, and definitely think you have even faster 10K, 15K, half, and full marathons PRs coming! I also loved that you included both the official beer mile and the ugly sweater beer mile, hah. You could run some less common race distances for more PRs - 12K, 10 mile, 25K, 30K...and of course your first ultra. :-)

    1. Ooh, yeah, I have run a 25k trail race. I didn't include my trail races because times are so different based on the course and technicality of the trails.
