2017 was another running year. I ran more virtual events than ever before. I spent my 40th birthday run/jog/walking a half marathon at Disneyland. I wore my fitbit, of course.

2017 Race Recap – Disneyland 10K
The races for this RunDisney weekend started at the before-the-sun hour of 5am. Oy! This meant every day I got up between 3:00 and 3:30. Oy, oy, oy! They’re worth it. I’m sure I’ll do it again. The 10K theme was Monsters, Inc – which I liked better than The Incredibles theme for the 5K.

My first legit race of 2017 – the Shamrock Run in downtown Portland. In 2014, Farmer John & I ran the 5K. We had a great time, but I haven’t ran it again… until now. And, I upped my game. I ran/walked the hilly 15k.
