2013 was a rebuilding year for Lora Lynne, after being ill at the end of 2012 and the beginning of 2013 and being exceptionally busy at work.
Lora Lynne and Brent married on January 18, 2013 and ran the Naples Half Marathon on January 20, 2013. Lora Lynne PR’d with a 1:50:38. The only other race Lora Lynne ran was the 2013 Northern Ohio Half Marathon in October, with a time of 1:54:25. Lora Lynne learned a lot about cyclocross when she helped TBH set up in Willoughby for a cyclocross race.
Lora Lynne additionally attempted to obtain the appointment as Lake County Probate Judge from Governor Kasich, which took a lot of time from her racing schedule. Lora Lynne currently serves as the Chief Magistrate at the Lake County Probate Court for Judge Mark Bartolotta.
In 2014, Lora Lynne plans to run several half and full marathons, with a goal of working on her speed. She hopes to break four hours in the marathon. Current planned races include the 20-Mile Drop, Cleveland Half Marathon, Lake Metroparks Lighthouse Triathlon, and the Northern Ohio Marathon. Additionally, Lora Lynne is working on her swimming so that she may increase her triathlon race distance. The swim is the only thing holding her back from longer distances. Additionally, Lora Lynne will be able to participate in many more TBH activities with better health and more time in her schedule.
