St. Paddy’s Half Marathon


Loved the course! Raced through a gorgeous neighborhood with big trees shading the course and gorgeous homes to admire along the way! I wondered if the multiple loops were ever going to end! 😉 The weather was gorgeous with a slight overcast and breezy just a bit humid.


It’s not a PR but I had an official finish time of 2:27:04. Andy Stewart put on an amazing race with an amazing race announcer at the finish, Jon Walk. I had the pleasure talking with Jon after the race about how some people just run to run, run for the medals or run for a purpose.


I also got to stay until the very last runner finished. Amazing guy with determination that was the only gentlemen who finished but not with an official time and he didn’t care. He was so excited to cross that finish and he got his medal. Sometimes we get so caught up in winning that we forget it’s not about winning, it’s about finishing no matter the time it takes to finish. Great job sir!
