Our Race Scrapbook 2018


Every year we put together a race scrapbook of that year's races.  Although this is quite time consuming and I thought about skipping it this year, I'm glad I took the time to put one together.  I know if I didn't do it I would have looked back and wondered why!

Neither of us ran as many races as we did in years past, but we both
ran some "new to us" races and we both completed our first Triathlon this year!   Cheers to another good year of running!


































Because I did this scrapbook totally last minute, it is not as creative as years past.  Feel free to check out our previous scrapbooks.

Recaps to all these races (and more) can be found HERE on our Race page link.

How would you describe your year of running for 2018? -M


    

                            
                    We will be linking up with Wendy and Holly for their Weekly Wrap!

  3. This is really cool! It looks plenty creative to me. :)

    2018 might be described as the wrath of the Weather Gods, I swear I don't think I had really nice weather for a single race!

  5. I keep a current record of all races (with links) on my Let's Race tab...so going back for things such as this goes quickly now...but there were several years when I had to look up each race recap individually ((UGH)). You guys still had a busy year!

    1. Do you mean the tab on your blog? I like when bloggers have all their races in one spot!

  12. I love the collages you put together! I always revisit my race recaps and need to remember to include the details I'll want to know about next time - especially related to logistics, which I tend to stress over. Happy New Year!

  13. The reason I liked here is that this event venue is so intimate and personable and while having astounding atmosphere! Really more suited and perfect for experiencing great food and having a good time.
