I promised a follow up of Pat's Run and gave a hint of possibly updating this blog better with at least some favorite photos taken recently.
I have not done this and I'm sorry.
Not that any of you are hanging on the edge of your seat waiting for my next post, but I like to pretend.
I ran this race last year and did better than I thought I would, with there being so many people.
This year there were even more runners registered!!
So many that they had to have "corrals". Each corral held about 1000 runners and there were at least 28 of them. Corral 1 started and then #2 started 30 seconds after them, and so on. There were still people waiting to start when the first runners came in!
Jeff and I both ran it this year along with Jeff's brother, Shaun.
My friend, Jess, raced. As well as some of our other "Lightning Bolts" teammates.
It's so fun to go through training and races with friends rather than by yourself!
Here's the link for the results if you need proof but...
Crazy!! I beat last year's time by 43 seconds but I never thought that would get me a spot on the leader board. 5th female out of 11,534!........ What?!!
Jeff was running more for the cause and a recreational activity.
He did really well for someone who doesn't even like running!
Maybe we'll bring Griffin next year to run the kids' race of .42 miles. He's a speedy little guy!
Pat's Run 2012, here we come!
