About Me

  • Running club(s):

    Half fanatics

  • Rave race:

    Route 66 tulsa

  • Race that's calling my name:
  • I run because:

    Why I run 

    Why do I run? Everything.

    Health. -mental & physical.
    It feels good.
    Enjoy being outside
    Enjoy seeing what my body is capible of.
    I run for those who can’t. 
    I run in memory.
    Run while you still can.
    I run because I love sugar and carbs. 
    And many many more. 

    Your mind reaches that place where you can only focus one stride at a time. One foot in front the other, one at a time. Your heart pulsates like that of a kick drum while your legs scream to hit the high notes of a 1970s rock opera. The pain is relentless but your world only exists between your ear buds. The sounds of your heroes provide the soundtrack of your greatest achievement. This is freedom in its purest form and you have earned every bit of it. You take a glance to your left and then another to your right. You see the crowds cheering you on but do they really see you? Do they see the countless hours of agony you have endured to be here? Can they even understand the magnitude of the sacrifice you have made to run a race that you never even intended to win? Only those keeping pace can truly understand and appreciate what this all means. This is what it is like to push yourself to the very limits of your physical and mental capacities and then find that last drop of strength buried deep below the surface to push just a little more.  Just one more mile now. One more mile until it all hits you. The countless mornings where you woke before the sun and put yourself through hell before the rest of the world even got out of bed. The long runs through snow covered city streets. The shin splints, hip pains and weak knees. This is why you kept going. When you cross that finish line, just remember that it’s ok to cry. You endured everything to cross that line and now it’s in sight. They can never take this from you and that is why you run.

    I run because I hate it. When you can train yourself to love what you hate, you have truly accomplished something extraordinary.

    I run because I have been blessed with the ability and privilege is not to be wasted.

    I run because no one thought I would finish.

    I run because it’s a hell of a lot better then standing still.

I enjoy the atmosphere and the sights. This time of year is usually great for running, and we had a great day. I love the option for the personalized fingers shirts after the race. They always pick a beautiful shade of purple for the race shirts which look good on everyone. I look forward to many more go girls.

It was very spectacular to run and explore a new place via a race through the new area, you see things and sights you would other wise miss. We was there just as the Marci grad season was kicking off the Chewbacca parade was awsome. They had some of the awsome Marci gras floats on the course perfect for race selfies. Made a few friends along th course and it’s one I definitely want to do again.

Of all the races I have done so far Route 66 has always come through regardless of the weather. It was a cold race this year still had tons of support not as much as on pretty warm days but that’s to be expected. I still call this the party race and it’s a blast, the new route has beautiful scenery too. And the finish line party doesn’t disappoint earthier, drinks ( Gatorade, water, muscle milk) snacks, pizza, and yummy beers.

Several aid stations throughout the course. Tons of food being given by spectators ( pretzels, donuts, chocolate, bananas, oranges, etc) lots of water stations & power aid stops…. Several port a potty along the course too. There was also water stations set up that you run under and it mist you too, they felt great. My first time running with out my drawstring bag as it wasn’t allowed, so I used a flip belt for this race and it held everything I needed. So between the belt and what I got along the race I had everything I needed.

Great race lots of people showed up good layout lots of water and gel stations. Awsome support. Didn’t have much post race food when I finished only bananas and we got free wine tasting in our wine glasses from a nearby winery ( when they finally opened) love the race shirt and the option to create our own unique finishers shirt or tank top. I look forward to this race again next year

Very nice and well planned race. Had Gatorade and water station and clean porta potties. I wasn’t fully prepared for the cold wind that morning, but other wise it was great. (I’m just not used to running in the cold)( I usually run in the spring or summer outside & inside on the treadmill rest of the time).the medal we was greeted with is very nice. It’s sitting up on a self on display in my living room, it’s realynice to have a “trophy” to display . It stands out from my others that hang on the wall. I’m already waiting for them to start selling tickets for 2018.
