Just how many races have I done?

So I got this question the other day in light of my busy race schedule for the summer and I honestly had no clue how many!  I haven’t always been a runner and did not complete my first half-marathon until college, but I have also not been great about keeping track of all my races.  I know the big ones, my four marathons, but I got to thinking it would be fun if I could try and remember most (definitely not all) of the races I have done.  I am sure I am forgetting some of the smaller 5ks, but here is a list of the races I have completed!

Definitely plan on adding to this list, but it is pretty cool to see how far I have progressed in terms of pace and frequency of racing.  I wish I could find all the medals!

Today was another easy pace run (7 miles @ 8:17 avg. pace) that didn’t feel so easy.  My legs are pretty dead I think so I really need to just listen to my body.  But I did get to try out my new sunglasses and they rock!

How many races have you done?  Do you have any lifetime goals for the number of races?  How do you display your medals?
