Last Sunday, three of our team members rocked Fleet Feet Sacramento’s 10th Annual Blue Diamond Almonds Shamrock’n Half Marathon.
It was the perfect day for a PR. Cody ran down a personal best with a finish time of 1:33:01, while Ashley and Aaron completed the day with their first half marathon finish in the books.
Aaron and his awesome wife Amber were able to share in the first time finisher experience. “It’s really incredible what consistent training can do”, says Aaron. “At the beginning of 2014 neither my wife or I were ‘runners’. We had set a goal to do a 5k, and were somehow talked into a half marathon. By starting small and each day pushing ourselves a little further past what we had done the day before, we were able to accomplish something we never imagined. It’s only March and we blew way past our 5k goal!”
It was a super fun experience and we look forward to our next half.
