Well, it's been 6 days since the 1st Annual Hero Run! Did you think I died? Well, I almost did. Not literally, just being dramatic. My splits are on my Garmin, so I will add those later... I had 1 negative split, I think miles 7 and 8. Listen to me and all my technical running stuff. It was a very successful race for a 1st Annual. And I'm not just saying that because Mary Lou Retton Rybicki was a contributor. All monies raised went to the Wounded Warrior Project, and I raised $700 for the 1LT Robert Wilson Collins Patriot Spirit Scholarship. My Run For Rob teammates will be hitting the Soldier Marathon in a month.. Such a GREAT cause, and again, I'm honored to a part of this group. Anywho, back to my very credible race re-cap/review I was mildly annoyed that there were no chips, but I had my time on my watch. It's just that
My time at 13.1 was 2:13:07. Good for an almost 2 min PR. I was itching to beat 2:10, but could easily blame the above chip and path issues... However, I'm aware I died around mile 11, therefore missed my goal. But that's O-freaking-K... life goes on, like in Feb. in AZ... I'm coming for you sub 2:10. I will have some help from my Chicago-Marathon-Killing-Boston-Marathon-Qualifying friend. If I'm REALLY nice, he'll design my training program.. I'm not even scared, he only runs 3x a week. So, obvi, he knows what he's doing!! Anyway, on to pics! YAY pics!

Nice touch Hero Run race committee!

See that pretty lady in the pink? That's my mom.
She ran the last 5K with me and provided mental CPR.
TGIF! GO CARDS!
