Lisa Wins Track Race!

2 Feb

Lisa continues to work on her speed! She started the day with running a track mile in 5:35, which dropped 2 seconds from last week’s time she raced, finishing 4th overall in a race to the line.  Less than 90 minutes later she lined up again to race the 1000 meters, she decided to blaze, not quite sure how quick her legs could go… she led from the gun to the finish in first place overall, 3:16!  Which was only 2.5 seconds off the stadium record time!


Lisa Places 4th in Track Mile

28 Jan

Lisa competed in her first track meet in 2 years this past weekend at the Principia Relays.  She ran a conservative race, right off the leaders not knowing how much gas she would have in the tank, as she is in the base building miles phase of training.  Lisa ended up feeling good, and was closing strong on the lead group the last lap placing 4th by a few seconds, in a time of 5:37.  The winner running 5:32.

Lisa enjoyed getting back on the track and busting off the rust!

Runnababez Run Go! Halloween Races

24 Oct

Several Runnababez ran at the Go! Halloween Races, this past weekend which featured distances of 5k,10k, and Half-Marathon.  The Go! Halloween races are known for the big local regional competition, in which all the areas best runners show up.  Almost each distance was represented by a Runnababe!

Amanda Houston ran in the 5k, placing 1st in her age-group, 5th woman overall.  This was her first race post-partum.  Also, her first race in three years!  Awesome run for first one back!

Lauren Hubbard continuing on her comeback streak also won her age-group in the 5k, placing as the 16th woman overall on very minimal training so far. Even Lauren’s daughter ran, and also…won her age-group! Lots of natural talent in those Hubbard girls!

Lisa Cary also continuing her post-partum racing comeback progress  attempted to do her longest race in a year, competing in the 10k.  She placed 12th woman overall, and 4th in her age-group.

The Runnababez were blazing around town that was for certain!

Lisa Wins 5k

17 Oct

Lisa participated in the Celebration Life 5k, for Mid-America Transplant honoring those who have donated organs.  The race took place in Forest Park this past weekend.  She ran this race as a part of a team supporting and in remembrance of Blake Stabler, the brother of her good friend Katie Boes.  The team name in honor of Blake was #BlakesBeautifulHeart.

Lisa held off the second place lady by being reminded by Tim, “To run hard for Blake!”  She gave a final push, and finished as first female overall in 20:20 knocking off 30 seconds from her 5k time a few weeks ago.



Fun. Fast. Fabulous.
