Javelina Jundred (Jenster’s Jalloween Jundo)

WTF are you doing? I lost track of how many times I asked myself this question. From the moment I hit submit on UltraSignup to the middle of the night in that dark desert in Arizona and every step in between…WTF, Jen??? Obviously I said it a lot because there were a lot of steps […]


For the FOURTH year in a row, I get to use the same title. I LOVE THIS RACE! How much do I love this race? Take a peak at my 2012 Race Report: Oh. My. Goodness. If I die tomorrow, I hope I’ve done enough good in the world to have this be where I end up. It’s […]

Better late than never – Bandera 100k RR

I started to write this report 1,000 times and I scrapped it every time because words couldn’t do the experience justice. They still can’t…but with so many friends heading to Bandera this year the race I keep looking back on my experience and writing this and looking at pics helps me contain my jealousy. On […]

RR: Nutcraker 12H Ultra

No race pics posted yet, which in my option always makes for an annoying report. Sorry. Like most weekends I’m “in town” I overbooked myself, scheduling my annual Christmas Jammy Jam the night before The Nutcracker 12 Hour race. At the time I didn’t think it was a big deal. The race was an hour […]

Crooked Road 24 Hour RR

It was 19 degrees when I pulled up to the start line. As someone who LOVES running in the 30s (often in shorts and a tank) I wasn’t quite prepared for how harsh the loss of 10 degrees would feel. I stood by my car, trying to summon the courage to shed the fleece pants I had over […]

RR: Marshall Marathon

For the last 4 years I’ve maintained a healthy trend of having a Spring and a Fall PR. Even if the PR is 20 seconds like in Spring 2013…a PR is a PR. I figured this fall would be the exception because I hadn’t really done much in terms of training. In fact, I’d been […]

Double Day 2 – Atlantic City Marathon RR

After a horrific crash and burn at Monster Mash, I just wanted a nap! The last thing I wanted to do was get into a car and drive another 2 hours to suffer through another freaking marathon, but everything was paid for so I had to keep on truckin. Luckily we hit no traffic and we […]

Double Day 1 – Monster Mash Marathon RR

*For those not familiar with Marathon Maniac lingo, a Double Marathon is two marathons in two days Long time readers will remember that I did a double back in November 2012. Both races didn’t go so well, with Savannah heat kickin my butt and the Raleigh hills kicking them the next day.  Excuses aside I […]

RR: Hinson Lake 24 Hour – PR PR PR!!!

For the third year in a row, I get to use the same title. I LOVE THIS RACE! This year was a bit different than the previous years. In 2012, I stopped at 33.5 miles because I had to PR at TCM the following weekend. In 2013, I stopped at 51.5 miles because I was trying […]

(Like a) Blister in the Sun Marathon RR

A Stupid Hot Hilly Little Run in the Park The RD says, “I guarantee suck ass conditions and a fun time.” What more do you want? It was hot. It was hilly. It was awesome. LET ME GO ON…. August 3, 2014 I’m a huge fan of a race that requires entrants to write a […]

M-M-M-My Rehoboth!

If you can’t read the title to the tune of “My Sherona” stop reading because I dont want to share this with you. Kidding! (maybe) I know everyone’s still patiently waiting for reports on a gazillion races. Or you’re like “WTF, this report’s over 9 months old…didnt care then, dont care now.” But I’ll just assume it’s […]

RR: Waldo 100k

I promised Bangle I’d blog about Hood to Coast and I cant really do that without talking about Waldo first. I really don’t know what I was thinking when I signed up. I loved every second of the Bandera 100k and you can’t go wrong hanging out with Mild Sauce and the Matzes, even if […]

RR: Moonlight Boogie 50M

It’s crazy how long I’ve gone without writing a race report. I’ve done a lot of amazing races in the last year and a half, saved pics, wrote reports in my head (and in some cases wrote half and just never finished)….but it just stopped being fun. So, while the magic of the Boogie is […]

Mr Penguin’s first 10k

One of my first memories is about penguins. My parents very foolishly bravely decided moving to Australia with three children ages 5 and under was a good idea. So when I was 3, we went on a day trip from Melbourne to Phillip Island. I distinctly remember quite a few things about the trip…but most vivid […]

RR: Hinson Lake 24 Hour – PR PR PR!!!

If this title looks familiar (and it should, because I know you have nothing better to do than read and re-read my race reports) that’s because I ran this race last year…and ended up with a distance PR for the Day, Week, and Month (And then I turned around a ran a 9 minute marathon PR […]
