Run, Brie.


Progress on my 2022 Running Goals

This year, I have two running goals that I will be working towards:

Additionally, I am going to keep doing the Crush Your Core program on Peloton with Emma Lovewell on repeat.

You can follow me on Strava.

January | 5K


On Saturday, 1 January 2022 I ran in the New Year's Resolution Run along the Panhandle Trail in Oakdale, PA. The weather was 54° F/12° C and raining the entire time. I finished in 32:12. Sign in to Strava and check out the activity.

February | 5K


On Saturday, February 12th, 2022, I ran in the Cupid's Chase 5K along the North Shore in Downtown Pittsburgh from PNC Park upriver along the Allegheny towards Washington's Landing and back. The weather was 35° F/1° C. I finished in 33:37, stopping only to tie my shoe.

We got to enjoy a gorgeous view of PNC Park from the Left Field Lounge following the race. Sign in to Strava and check out the activity.

On Wednesday, March 16th, 2022, I went for an impromptu run. I ran in Coraopolis, using the Coraopolis Bridge to cross the Ohio River back channel to Neville Island and back. The weather was sunny and 64 °F/17 °C. I ran 3.4 miles/5.5 kilometers in 38:49.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have an event with 5K and 10K options. If I am ahead of schedule, I could knock the 10K out here. Alternately, the Pittsburgh Marathon 5K is April 30 with an interesting route that I am seriously considering. The Boston Trail Half Marathon has a 5K component on April 23.









The Moraine Regatta 5K could be fun.

Just for fun, I am considering the Night Nation Run, described as "the world first running music festival". So, I guess we'll see what that's about but the swag looks super cool. As of 1 February 2022, registration is now available but I will still wait a while to register.



It seems very reasonable for the City of Pittsburgh Great Race to be a 10K candidate.



The ✈️ FlyBy 5K lets you run on the tarmac at Pittsburgh International Airport. That's what I'll be doing in October.





Interesting races around the area

Crush Your Core

I finished my first ever round of Peloton's Crush Your Core program with Emma Lovewell on January 1, 2022. I really enjoyed the program so I intend to repeat it through out 2022. My progress on this goal:


If I meet these goals, I will celebrate. A few ideas I have for celebrations include:

It probably makes the most sense to get these prints done of the 10K that I do, unless there's an especially meaningful 5K.
