What a glorious day for a half marathon. The PDR has been my favorite race for the past few years, and today was no different. Perfect weather, chilly at the start, warm towards the finish, sunny throughout.
Our KarmaStriders had 11 runners that I know of, and many 'friends of striders' made it out as well.
Some of us finally got to meet one another face to face.
Here's how it broke down.
Jackie Powers - 1:35:32
Paige Soltany - 1:47:09 fighting through calf pain.
Nancy Perrino - 1:58:01 Batteling a nasty cold
Ralph Perrino - 1:58:01
Ashley Fe R - 2:04:21 First ever half-mar
Erin Trumbauer- 2:09:39 First ever half-mar
Jeffery Bauer - 2:23:27 First ever half-mar
Paul Goldstone- 2:23:28 Happy to have a 13+mi non-stop run still not right from IMLP.
Sara Race - 2:37:17 Fighting a wicked bug, + heavily medicated.
JJ Marcano - 2:50.00 getting back on track
Matthew Plona - No results posted. Wha happen' ?
Course was fine.
Music was great
Water stops placed just right. Thank you volunteers.
TOO MANY PPL w/ headphones on the course. (persona; pet peeve.)
Very proud of our team. Extra atta way's to all first-timers.
Your racing IQ is 10 times what it was when you woke up this morning.
All in all a fantastic race day in Phila.
