2012 Gate River Run

A little over 6 years ago I decided I was going to begin training to run my first 5k race. It took 3 months, but I ran that first race. Since then I’ve been a Runner. And let me tell you, that was a big shift for me. I was always the guy who made fun of those “health freaks” running in their funny shorts and their walk-mans (yes I’m a child of the 80s). Then suddenly I was one of them. One race and I was hooked.

On Saturday I ran in my 6th Gate River Run. The Gate River Run in Jacksonville, Florida is the largest 15k in the US. And this year was no exception. I participated this year with 20,000 of my closest friends and it was EPIC! I finished not just in record time, but in “holy-crap-thats-really-my-time?!” record time.

Final official 15k finishing time 1:15:17. Boom baby!

If you’re not a runner, go run. You just might like it. πŸ˜‰

  1. Congrats. Last year my wife (who was never a runner) ran a relay in the Pittsburgh Marathon. I was very proud of her and was there at her relay exchange to greet her. Just being there made me feel like part of a community.

    • That’s awesome! Reason I love running is same reason I love golf. Both are sports u can do alone, but they’re more fun with a group. πŸ™‚
