Akron Marathon

Yesterday was the Akron Marathon. Kristin ran on a 5 person relay team. She had the finishing 12.2k leg. She finished her leg in 1:28:54. The team time was 4:36:39.

I must give a shoutout to a couple other friends. My buddy Flash (yes that is his real name...one of his three middle names) finished the marathon in 4:53:15. It was his first marathon. His girlfriend Kelly, who will be running the full marathon at Disney World in January, finished the half in 2:00:16. There were also at least three teams from Smucker's that ran, but I don't know their team names and can't look up their times. Great job goes out to all the runners!

Today was Kristin's rest day. I went out planning for a nine mile run. I ended up at 7.5 miles. I had some pain in my left shin that wouldn't go away, so I stopped a bit short. I'll be icing it as soon as dinner is done.

Go Kristen! We didn't know you guys were going to be there or we would have come out since we were in Akron this weekend. I thought you were in Cincinnati? Can't believe Flash ran the whole thing.

Congrats to Kristen! Great work!

Sounds like we're all beat up a little bit coming down the stretch. :-) Your shin, Mike's knee, my hip.....Yikes! I'm sure we'll all pull through though. Keep up the great training, both of you!
