2019 Xterra Race Report – Not a Great Day

I was overdue for some bad racing luck.

  1. Tweaked my shoulder race week
  2. Downpour on race day
  3. Mechanical that forced me to hike, push and scoot my bike for 3 miles.
  4. I lost my Fitbit in Eagle Lake

I was happy with my swim, my run and embraced the humbling experience of hiking in the rain.  

I finished 7th (out of 7) in my age group and snagged some 2020 XTERRA series points.

Ice Man is next. 


My Office in the Woods…

Ok, so maybe I wasn’t actually “in the woods,” but I was pretty close for a week.

Double Duty Race Weekend – Katie’s Borges Run and Fort Custer Stampede

Katie BridgesI raced on Sunday, May 6 by starting my day at the Borgess 10K in Kalamazoo. It was a beautiful morning, and the race had an exciting vibe. Borgess features a Marathon, Half, a 10K and 5K. At this event the last mile was dedicated to veterans, and I was honored with a red, white and blue bib number for my race!

I rested a few hours and headed to Fort Custer for the Sport Category of the Stampede. The race featured many of my favorite parts of the mountain bike trails. It was fun to mix it up and cruise for two laps of the course. By the end of lap 2, I was pretty tired! It had been a long day of racing but so much fun to cross the finish line twice!
