Seattle spartan beast-race report

On Saturday this happened

My last spartan race was the Montana beast in may of 2015. Thinking I had given up OCR for triathalons, I  didnt expect to be doing this race. 

The BFF gave me a free code and i thought “why not”

This was actually a beast PR for me.  I’ve done the Utah beast in 2014 and the Montana beast in 2015.

The weather was amazing (i even got a tan)!

Nutrition was on point


No cramping

I got my spear throw!!!!

 Mermaidsson did the kids spartan and I’m thinking i might have him on board for the Montana sprint!  This was Amber’s 1st spartan and she did an amazing job! Read about her experience! 

Here are some pics

Race report-hayden lake half

With all the weather warnings i was pleasantly suprised we had such great running weather. 

hayden lake is always a beautiful place to race. Ive completed a triathalon here and now this half. The races are ALWAYS well run and the atmosphere is AWESOMENESS!

We also got these cool hydration pouches to ise at the aid stations  they help cut down on garbage, and are hands-free πŸ–πŸ–‘!

the greatest part about having a friend that’s fast is that you always get finish photosβ™‘β™‘β™‘

So thank you B !

What’s for lunch?

Every weekend I’m thinking “what am I going to take for lunches this week?”

I’m the kind of person that if I don’t meal prep,  it’s fast food all week long😦

So I found a recipe for chicken tortilla soup HERE. I didn’t follow it exactly.  I added a can of black beans, and I got a roasted whole chicken from costco.  Only 5 bucks! Much easier to shred and in less time.  Overall this prep took 10 minutes. Open some cans and shred  a chicken. Tada

Breakfast are the usual: protein and almond milk.


Boiled eggs and almonds/mangos

Share your healthy soup recipes with me! Happy dayπŸ˜†

All in a weeks work πŸ‹

Workouts didn’t exactly “stick to plan” this week and I’m okay with that. Not training for an ironman and i don’t have to as rigid with my schedule.

I ran a total of 22 miles and hit crossfit 3 times.

I feel good about that. 

Today was a nice 10.5 mi trail run. I planned out the course last night and was fairly close to my projected mileage. I feel pretty damn free out there, and I love it. 

Decent elevation work. Nothing close to my upcoming spartan beast, but it will do

I feel lucky to live in such a beautiful place

More of the same for this week but I do need to get in 1 shorter run.

How did you get active this week?

Working for the weekend πŸ˜†

Not literally but…..definitely getting in some miles!


I gotta support my girl noteworthyrunning so I joined her for a 50 mi bike this morning. WTF was I thinking? I haven’t been on a bike in a month! The wind and the ride kicked my ass……and my legs.


15 miles planned less than 3 obtained.  I slept in! Until 0900!!! Then I snuggled my boys. A lazy morning led mermaidsson and I to our local trails. 

I didn’t get the planned miles in but it really doesn’t matter πŸ€—πŸ€—

It was windy but we had a good time

Opt outside ❀❀❀❀

This weeks trainingΒ 

So, 6 weeks until Hayden lake marathon7 weeks until Seattle spartan beastand 8 weeks until the Halloween half by trail maniacs

That should just about round out my 2016 race season.

I am getting back to my Ol’ stomping grounds at crossfit rove and so far loving it πŸ–’

I still have some time to think about my 2017 race schedule/goals

 my training bestie Noteworthyrunning is going to rock  IM maryland😊😊😊😊 ( I would be there with her in a ❀beat if I could)
