Jackie Places Top 10 at Gazelle Girl Half Marathon

I think my body may still be recovering from this long weekend of running!

Sunday was the second annual Gazelle Girl Half Marathon & 5K in Grand Rapids. It is an all-female event sponsored by Nike to bring awareness and support of Title IX, a 1972 federal law protecting people from discrimination based on sex in education programs and activities, including athletics.

I am a huge fan of women's athletics and fitness, having been a college athlete during my time at Ferris State University.

Grand Rapids Get Ready For The Groundhog’s Day Marathon

Every year in February we wait for that little ground hog to come up and either see his shadow or not, and make us know whether spring is in the horizon or if we'll be suffering through more winter!

Jackie Races the Dopey Challenge: Part 3

Wow. It took me awhile to get to this one: Part 3 of my Dopey Challenge saga.

Why you ask?

Well, I really crashed and burned in Part 3, where I ran the half marathon at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando.

If you aren't familiar with half marathons, that is 13.1 miles. Not to sound like I just got off the bus from bragging camp, because 13 miles isn't a very difficult distance for me.

I have run for so many years that 13 miles is a staple in my weekly training. In college, 13 miles was also known as Sunday.

Jackie’s Race Progression

I normally see a photo of me running and think, BAH! AWFUL, every time. This past Saturday though I raced in, Duo On The Ledge, a half marathon in Grand Ledge. I was sent a series of pictures from the race progressing from mile 2 on up to 13. I had to share these mainly because the ones at miles 2,3, and 4, I am down right gleeful... then we get to mile 13 and I look like a dead animal!

Jackie’s Weekend Victories

Just making it to the weekend seems like a victory. Some weekends my victory is simple, maybe I have gotten to see some old friends, or drank some beer and went canoeing (both those things are always awesome!) This weekend though my victory was different. I last minute (literally the night before made this decision) decided to run, Duo On The Ledge; a half marathon in Grand Ledge, MI.
