April, awesome pic. Huge grats on the PR. I'm so glad for you.
PRs: Marathon (2:49xx; '13) Half (1:25xx; '12) 10k (40:26; '11) 5mi (29:23; '13) 5k (17:33; '13)
I enjoyed reading through your RR and a big congrats to you on the PR! I don't know what it is about AG shifts, but there always seems to be the fastest people in mine as well - There's a local HM that I had thought about running (but didn't work out in my training plan) and in my 45-49 bracket there were 5 in the top 10 overall ... 3 with sub 1:35 times!
2013 Goals: Train smart ... race smarter. Δ57s
2014 Goals: Work to improve speed and stamina to 3:15 and beyond.
Brava, AprilRunner! Great cause.

Good for you, you have been working your butt off and it's paying off!

Mitch, Gus, Robert, Damaris, Scott, redrum, Scotty, Shirfan, Dave, Luke, Basya, Rick, thanks!!
SIAR, I like to think that I'd have been able to at least hold the magic "around 9mm" pace, but I really don't know. I was pretty spent, but that hill kinda killed me too. Thanks for your kind words.
Bruce, Thanks, and I know, people are crazy! I have a friend in his 50's who runs around a 1:40 HM. My only solace is in the fact that by the time I'm 50 (when the ladies slow back down) I SHOULD be nailing some AG awards, since by then I'll have been running for over 20 years.
That is such a fantastic picture of you! Congratulations on your great finish time and PR! Keep on training smart like you have been doing and I predict a whole season of PRs for you!

I smell an AG award in your near future! Congratulations on a great time in race with such a worthy cause. Nice picture too!
Run until you're exhausted. Then keep on going.
