Race Recap - 2017 Winter Park Road Race

Hey there!! I'm going back into time a bit to catch up on some races i've ran.  This post features the Winter Park Road Race in Winter Park, FL.  The route was a 10k with an additional 2 miler challenge if you wanted. I did not dare to take the challenge. 

The route was on some cobble stone streets of old Florida and regular paved roadways.  I knew there would be cobble stone and I stayed in the center of the roadway and it was too bad on the ankles. 

I was happy to finish and PR and get my dang donut!!!!!  Ok, you don't know this but I love my donut after a run, I guess I crave the sugar instead of a beer.  Usually, the donuts are all gone by the time I get done so I was happy to get this krispy kreme in my mouth!


Here is a group photo of most of the West Volusia Runners who attended the event.  Best support group EVER!!!!


The finishers medal with My Soxy Feet that matched and get me through the race with no blisters or problems. 


I would recommend this race to anyone, just be warned about the crowd and cobble stone route. There was great after party area with lots of vendors and snacks.

Race Recap: 2017 Swamp House Half Marathon & 5K, DeBary, FL



The 2017 Swamp House Half Marathon and 5K was a success!!!!  This was my 2nd half marathon ever and it was great. I felt good, the weather was perfect and the stars had aligned.  This great race take place in a small city of DeBary between Daytona Beach and Orlando. The scenic route takes you back to old Florida for the second part of the half marathon.  Fort Florida Road is a tree covered 3 mile stretch with cows, and even a rooster guarding the mile 9 water stop and porto potties.  I finished and felt good. Could I have been faster? Yes. Was my foot hurting? Yes. Did I die? No. LOL We were all greeted with water, bananas, and chocolate milk. 



The after party was down at the Swamp House Grill at the St. Johns River.  There was Beer, Food, Donuts, Leggings, and more!!!! Did I mention Beer? LOL




Would I do this race again? Heck yes!!!!  What if I can't make it? There is a virtual option! Talk about great bling!!!
