Race For The Cure 1000 miles (Read 999 times)

Marquess of Utopia

    One year ago my wife's aunt died of breast cancer; to show my support we ran in the local Komen "Race For The Cure". I hadn't trained at all before the race and ran a 25:38. It was tough and I forced myself not to walk, during the race I decided to start running again. I have continued to run; and have logged 1000 miles these past eleven and a half months. This weekend was again "Race For The Cure" and I improved my 5k time by over seven and a half minutes! (18:01) I want to thank everyone at runningahead.com for providing a tool which has helped to keep me motivated.

      All I can say is...wow!


        Holy moly--that's something! And congrats on your mileage, too! You haev many things to be proud of. Smile k
