  • LA 13.1 – Sick with a respiratory infection still ran 1:43
  • Redondo Beach 10K – 38:03 – PR – but my 6-mile PR (35:55) is equivalent to a lot faster
  • Napa Valley Marathon – 2:59:38 – first sub 3
  • Desert Dash Night 20K
  • American River 50M – 8:13 PR 50 M (4:24 50K split, PR 50K)

  • Crew/Pace Helen at Western States — another incredible experience; Helen finished in 27:07 after Erin got her moving fast for the last 10K.
  • Will Rogers 10K–sick for the second race of the year. ran 42:50 but didn’t have the energy or strength to truly race.
