I’ve done a lot of wonderful things with a lot of wonderful people. But this moment with this little girl is climbing its way to the top. #hachie50#wrcstrong
My first full marathon is checked off the goal list, the list it was never on nor tended to be on. I had the ultimate cheering and support corner in the whole park. They pushed me through, made sure I was doing okay with every mile - I would have never made it without them. I'm not discrediting my time (6:08) but it wasn't what I had planned. I was pacing a 12 minute mile until 11 miles in and it fell apart with a lot of speed walking. All in all this was my first and it will either be my last or I have the opportunity to beat this time.
Looking forward to seeing everyone THIS weekend! Stop by our tent after the race for FREE Normatec sessions! Also, make sure you find the Texas Cryoworks postcard in your packet...it's worth $15! #wrcstrong#hachie50
Eeek! The goal for this race will be 3:15, which will be next year’s Boston qualifying time. So basically I’m practicing the course and the pace one year ahead of time allowing for a five minute drop in pace between now and next year. Looks like it’s going to be 52 in a little bit muggy at the start. There just so happens to be a 3:15 pace group for this event so I will start off ahead of them and try to just hang with them later on in the race when they catch up to me as always happens. #woodlandsmarathon#run#runhappy#brooksghost#igrunners#wrcstrong#chrc#hillvilla#running#marathon#bostonbound#fitness
Had a blast today at the #wrcstrong Labor Day #tri! Did my 1st Duathlon and came in 2nd (small race) despite still warming up around the corner when the starting gun went off, and riding on my wife's old mountain bike with a helmet from the thrift store! I've eaten extremely good the last 2 days and it paid off! Thank you to all the volunteers who made this happen! Managed a 6:57 pace 5k on the 1st run today on a Texas summer morning! Biking was much harder and my hamstrings were on fire getting off the bike from pushing it hard on the last stretch. I was able to run progressively faster each mile on the last 5k, and I officially finished in 1:16:46. I found the transition area to be tougher than I thought. Looking forward to winning it outright next year! #runnersofinstagram#triharder#duathlon#run#efs#helloseptember#labordaytri#igrunner
Last post op visit today; have to wait one more week before I can swim so I got a good 4 mile trail run while dodging the sprinkles #wrcstrong
Great morning to get back running, marathon training starts soon. Felt like running through a cloud this morning the humidity was so thick! Feels good to get back out there and sweat out the stress!
