My 2 Feet

I will be training for the Battleship Half Marathon and will be keeping a blog about my training. The race is here in Wilmington on November1, 2009. I hope that I will inspire someone else to take on the challenge or inspire then to run their first 5K or 10K. You can follow me as I run at My 2 Feet

St. Patrick's Day 5K

We ran in the 5th Annual Steve Haydu St. Patrick's LoTide Run. Ryan and Lee Ann came up for the race, so it was a fun weekend! The race was at Carolina Beach and the money raised goes to a local family that cannot afford health insurance to cover cancer treatment. It was cloudy and chilly at 44 degrees, but once we got moving it felt good. The final tenth of a mile was on the beach and the sand was DEEP, so that made crossing the finish line even better.

Brian did awesome! He finished in 24:22, placing 12th in his age group (out of 112) and 55 overall (out of 863). I think he gave Ryan a little friendly competition!

My time was a little slower than I would have liked, but I am still recovering from bronchitis and I know that affected my performance. I finished in 33:49, placing 66th in my age group (out of 183) and 364th overall. Several of our friends ran along with us and I am proud of eveyone's finish!

Our next race will be the Cooper River Bridge Run in Charleston, SC on April 4th. it will be the first 10K for both of us, so we will be training hard over the next 3 weeks!
