Race day! 7 months ago I decided to be active and figured committing to a 1/2 marathon would help me reach my goals. Getting to today's race was full o highs and lows, pain and struggle but I made it. My chip time was 1:55:01. I am very happy with my results and now I have an official target to beat. Finishing the race today is not the end but a beginning. #running#fitdad#dadbod#halfmarathon#bluenose2017. . It was awesome to have the support of family out there today. Tag even ran the last 500m with to finish.
"Hi Mom!" #bluenose2017 For only deciding to enter a week before, I ended up getting a pretty decent time (1h33m in the half) and raised some $. I probably should have gone a bit slower though: I was feeling pretty out of it for a while and getting through the work week was a struggle.
The results are in (and we broke a record - The most funds EVER raised at the @scotiabank Blue Nose Marathon Charity Challenge.) Drum roll please.............. We're proud to announce that the grand total raised for the 2017 Scotiabank Charity Challenge is $600,000 !!!!!!!!!!!!!! This means we hit our goal right on the NOSE. We are so excited! . .
