Went on an awesome 27 mile night run last night at the Oil Creek State Park trail loop. Night time training for Ultras. Had a great time running with @bradwingler and Adam. Saw a lot of animal friends along the way!
A big S/O to all the volunteers of the Drake Well Marathon and Half over the weekend. They, along with the race director, definitely know how to put on a great event. Honored and blessed to be able to do what I do. Also thankful for the information that was just passed along to me (second picture). My first competitive half in over three years, and all I can say is I had a lot of fun, and happy that I signed up for it last minute.
‘There is magic in misery. Just ask any runner.’ – Dean Karnazes . . I now consider myself a ‘runner,’ which I never thought in a million years I’d be at this point, and loving it (though nowhere close to @ultramarathon he is incredible!) Love that I get to experience the ups and downs with this lil pooch and @kamronbradbury (And anyone else that wants to tag along 😂) . #runner#running
8-4-2019 Drake Well Half Marathon. Race temps upper 50ies to start the race. Will take that gift to Start August. Also 6 months since my Cardiac Event, so thankful to still be running 🏃. Love the smaller races, great support and staff. Brought home some Pennsylvania Crude oil from Drake Well #drakewellmarathon#drakewellmuseum
. . Pre-Marathon picnic with two very special people!!! My twin and almost sister @kileymari.e who is about to be a SENIOR in HS!!! 🤩🤩🤩 . We are quite the trifecta this weekend......I LOVE it! . Oh, Patrick has competition tomorrow!!! That’s right, another “DUO” team will be next to us at the starting line, and when I told him this he gave me a special smile which means he would prefer coming in 1st over 2nd 🤣 🤣🤣 He also had his favorite pre-race drink, a chocolate milk shake, lucky guy! . ~~~~~~~~~However~~~~~~~~~~ I will say or type it ...
It's the feeling of racing an unknown opponent at the speed the Earth turns, whilst simultaneously entering a body- and mind-warming zen state. Painting #enpleinair is such medicine for the self. #acrylicpainting
