The Heat Was Definitely On 8K

In my masters series quest one of the more obscure distance records is the 8k. I think it falls under the same category as the 12k and 20k. They are not very common these days- especially compared to the ever popular 5k, 10k, or half marathon. There used to be a popular 8k race in Little Rock (Rock Run) but

Firecracker Fast 5k- a PR Surprise!

The Firecracker Fast 5k is truly a race that lives up to its name! The first time I ran it in 2013 I had no idea what to expect and it did not disappoint.  It’s a fast point to point race with a lot of downhill in the first 2 miles.  I love downhill racing but unfortunately there are not

2 Races & 2 Records- Arkansas Runner 2 Mile & Go! Mile 2019

CASA Half Marathon

Ready or not I ran the CASA Half Marathon exactly 4 weeks after 3 Bridges. I love this race and truly believe it’s the fastest half marathon course in Arkansas. (At this point I think I’ve run most of them!)  I’ve worked this race into my schedule every year since 2013.  CASA was originally scheduled for December but bad weather
