3/31/2012 - Cooper River Bridge Run 10K = Scratch
I wanted so bad to try and run this and beat my 55 from last year, maybe a 54 or 53. However, I was on strict doctors orders, "NO EXERCISE." Instead I played chauffer and dropped G & T off and hung out downtown for about 4 hours waiting to cheer them across the finish. Then I had a doughnut and bratwurst with them, because I paid the entry fee and had my bib and everything and therefore was sure I deserved that food, $45 and no race, I was getting my money worth.
01/08/2012 - Disney World Marathon = 5:13:31
…and then it hit the fan. T and I were on perfect pace to finish at 4:30 and then something horrible happened in my right foot. It was a shooting, crazy pain every time I stepped. My face was in a permanent wince except when I would try real quick to fake a smile for the cameras. My pace dropped from 10:30ish to 12 to 15 min miles. Ouch! I was really disappointed in myself. However, I tried to look at the bright side I did finish a marathon. Plus as stubborn as I am after about 10 minutes of complaining about my bad finish I decided I had to beat that ugly time. Enter marathon number 2.
04/02/2011 - Cooper River Bridge Run 10K = 55:32
My goal was to beat my 58 from last year. In my head I was shooting for 55ish because that seemed like a good number, but I didn't tell anyone as it seemed like a big jump. So happy I made it, 2 amazing races in a row.
1/15/2011 - Charleston Half Marathon = 1:58:27
While I may have fallen in love with running before and even become a regular runner in the past year, this race made it official. Obsession! I knew I wanted to run more and I knew that I would need a buddy to motivate me. T is the type who cannot say no to any physical challenge (she plays rugby, lacrosse, hockey, and anything else you throw at her) so I asked her if she would be interested in trying some races with me. This was our first race together and our sub 2 hour time exceeded even our hopes. I have never been prouder. At this time we decided it was time for a marathon.
3/27/2010 - Cooper River Bridge Run 10K = 58:12
I had been running even more, some might even say on a regular basis. I came in with the goal of breaking an hour. I was super happy with my performance. Then C's dad pointed out that he beat me by exactly 2 seconds. I blame this on the fact that C tripped and I stopped to help her up. Where were you then dadio?
11/26/2009 - Thanksgiving Turkey Trot 5K = 43:01
Sometimes it isn't about you, it is about helping someone else fall in love with running. This race I helped pace a friend who was just starting to run. We would run a bit, walk a bit, run a bit,…
10/03/2009 - Isle of Palms Connector Run 10K = 1:02:53
I had been running off and on for a while at this point so I didn't do any special training for this one and matched my Cooper time pretty closely.
04/04/2009 - Cooper River Bridge Run 10K = 1:02:something
Stupid chip broke. My goal was 10 minute miles and I did just that. Meeting my goal made for a very happy Abby
04/ 05/2008 - Cooper River Bridge Run 10K = 1:10:05
This is what happens when you hardly run for the 4 months after your half marathon. I had fun running the race though and felt the desire to do better. This may be about the point the running bug first struck.
12/08/2007 - Kiawah Half Marathon = 2:37:33
My first real race and I started with a half marathon. Who does that? I hadn't fallen in love with running yet and while I did a few longer runs, I did not run regularly. It was rough.
