I’m going to keep you all in suspense of my race. Only because I want to include pictures and the camera is in Alex’s room.
I usually have a day off on Saturday’s but since we had such little mileage leading up to the race I had to make up some mileage.
Coach said not to worry about it though so I just did an easy 3 miler.
3.1 Miles in 24:35 [7:55 per mile]
Thoughts on the run
- Oh Hi Patrick!! (Saw a teammate drive past)
- I’m breathing harder on this run than I did in the race yesterday
- Probably because of the wind and these hills
- I really liked the 3k distance. I wish I could run it again.
- My legs feel pretty great after racing yesterday
- Hi Nate!! (Ran into another teammate that ran about .25 with me)
- Was that Cody? (As someone drives past yelling at us)
- My splits don’t look like I’m taking this run easy, but I swear I am
The weather has been absolutely gorgeous here. I hope it doesn’t leave!
I received an email a few days ago talking about a new running movie that will be coming out! We all know how inspirational those are so I thought I would share it with you.
“I would like to introduce you to the award-winning and critically
acclaimed inspirational documentary “MY RUN”, narrated by Academy Award
winner Billy Bob Thornton.
I would like to share with you the story of “MY RUN”, along with
information about its upcoming ONE NIGHT only Premiere Event coming to
Movie Theaters Nationwide on March 31, 2011. I believe that you and your
subscribers will find MY RUN inspirational, uplifting and exciting,
because it embodies and exemplifies the power and resilience of the human
We have teamed up with Lance Armstrong’s Cancer Foundation LIVESTRONG,
Active.com and Life Time Fitness in the release of MY RUN, where a portion
of the film’s profits will be donated to LIVESTRONG to FIGHT CANCER. It’s
all about being somebody’s hero. “Your film is so important to raising
awareness of so many issues including the power of the human spirit. Mr.
Hitchcock’s vision and story is one I will never forget,” said Doug Ulman
President/CEO of LIVESTRONG.
The MY RUN Story – After tragically losing his wife to breast cancer and
struggling to raise three young children on his own, real life super hero
and modern day Forrest Gump, Terry Hitchcock seized on an idea. He wanted
to accomplish the impossible: run 75 consecutive marathons in 75
consecutive days to bring attention to the incredibly difficult lives of
single-parent families. He ran in spite of freezing rain and unbearable
heat, in spite of chest pains and bone fractures that wracked his
57-year-old body. He just kept running – each day, every day -
strengthening an unbreakable bond between father and son— not stopping
until he broke the finish line tape in Atlanta. MY RUN is more than a film
about a guy running multiple marathons; it’s a film about the daily
marathons we all run in life, a theme that’s extremely relevant and
important in this day and time.”
