Not Too Bad For My First 5 Miler!

On July 9th, 2011 I ran the Belmar 5.

I ran it with my newest running partner, Iron-Man-Brett.  And when I say that we “ran” it together, I mean that we started together and then I never saw him again!

Even though the weather channel called for 70’ish degrees and overcast… the day turned out to be extremely HOT!  Somehow we both managed to PR!  Me, because it was my first and Brett because he just wouldn’t accept anything less.

Great Fun & Great Times at the 2011 BSR!

This year I shaved over 12 minutes off my BSR time from last year! 

 

I also had a great time with my girls! Oh, and Vinny!

35th Annual Broad Street Run!!

“Congratulations and welcome to TEAM DUNKIN’!!   You have been selected as 1 of 10 extraordinary individuals to join Team Dunkin’ for the 32nd Annual Blue Cross Broad Street Run on Sunday, May 1, 2011!  We received some great submissions, but based on your essay, your community involvement and all that you have done for the Greater Philadelphia area, YOU were chosen!”

You can imagine how excited I was to find this message in my inbox!  I was totally bummed when I hadn’t signed up for the race and it sold out in just a few short days.  All my friends were doing it and I felt totally left out!  On a whim I signed up for this Facebook contest and with little to no hope, I composed my essay.  I had just assumed I’d be crashing the race with my Lululemon Run Club or buying a bib off of Craigslist for 4X the price.

Well, last night I received my confirmation email from the 35th Annual Broad Street Run!!  I am officially registered, yada, yada…  And even better news…I come to find out from a Facebook friend that this year they are giving “hardware” to the finishers! (Medals)  I’m so excited!  This past week (post Paris Marathon), I’ve taken off from running, nursing a small injury…but I’m back in action now, so stay tuned for some fun BSR training photos!
