Great crew racing the Cherry Garcia 5k this morning! This was a wonderful way to start the summer and marathon build up towards @hmf_events. I won in 16:17, Corey was 3rd in 16:24 and Sal was 4th in 16:34. I’m sure Morgan had a blast in her first altitude 5k, as she won with ease in 20min and change... Chef Marc crushed his pr in the 10k with a 49:37 and not pictured was @mizcarrera who won the 10k and then crushed Corey and I in a workout afterwards... I’m grateful we got Ben & Jerry’s Ice afterwards too!

Happy Graduation Day! This is the only photo I happen to have from our Commencement Day at Manzano Day School. Cheers to all of those little 5th graders as they venture onward towards middle school.

It’s finally safe to say that I have been fortunate enough to be reselected as a @runinrabbit Elite athlete. This is my second year onboard with this amazing California based brand! I know I fell short on a few of my goals this year; such as improving on my 2:25 marathon time in an attempt to get closer towards 2:19. But with those short comings, I still feel that my journey towards an Olympic Trials Standard is still within reach.

The progression from when the window opened in 2017 was:

CIM - 2:25:50
Philadelphia - 2:29:10
Boston - 2:31:57

That’s more like a digression... however with the support and validation from Rabbit, I can keep keep chasing that dream with the hopes of getting back to the Fitness I was at when I qualified for the 2012 Olympic Trials!
Thank you for this opportunity as Rabbit has some exciting new product and events coming out this year. Also, as a RabbitElite athlete, I can share with you a discount if you’d like to purchase any of their fabulous items! Let me know!

Oh the joy of racing the Boston Marathon. I raced to my fitness, but got humbled on the hills. 2:31:57 finishing time, and a Boston Marathon PR... I know I have a faster time in me.

Post Boston Marathon finish! I don’t have any action shots yet, but I can assure you he agony of the Marathon was very true after mile 18... I’m not disappointed with my 2:31:57 finish, but I would be lying if I didn’t want a faster time. I went out a little quick in 1:12:20ish and died hard. I know I have a low 2:20 in me, so I’m gonna learn from this and keep grinding. I also had a wonderful experience spending time with this amazing group of friends and support crew. Thank you @dukestrackclub and my amazing rock of a wife @leenbug. A big congrats to all the Duke’s as Brett lead the team with a big personal best! All the support was amazing which is just one reason why I love this sport - Thank You! @bostonmarathon @allkindsoffastphoenixville @runinrabbit #dukestrackclub #runinrabbit #nike #vaporfly #marathoner #runningteacher #unicorn #runningtribe
