2014 achilles hope & possibility 5 miler: race photos and results

in all my years as a nyrr, this was my first time running the achilles 5 miler!  and, had i know it wasn't a marathon qualifier it's unlikely i would have registered for it since i generally only run those that add a point to the 9+1 requirement.  but it was a honor to run this race - and join the achilles runners on the course.  point or not, it's a race i'll continue to run in the years ahead.

as for my performance, it wasn't one of my faster 5 mile races.  at 39:26, 7:54 pace, it's actually one of my slowest 5 mile road race finishes.  still, i enjoyed myself and, given the high mileage week, i was more than happy with to get it done.

next up is the putnam county classic on the 4th of july - and maybe a trip to van cortandt park the night before for the relay :D

here are the race results from nyrr.

the rest of my photos are up on facebook.

When I can run - and now i can! - I always do this one. Qualifier or not, there's a comraderie among the runners, especially those who are disabled or once were, that isn't present in the other races. I'm honored to be allowed to run with them, whatever their disability.
