There’s a time run for time. There’s a time to win a race. Today I wanted to make sure I won the race. And I did that. I managed to run a PR in the process.

First time winning a half marathon. It’s surreal – especially where I live. One of the best, happiest, most fun, and most memorable moments of my life. I’ll never forget it. Brought tears to my eyes.

Finished strong. Had some left in the tank.

Thank you to my wife for your constant, continuous support.

Happy my dad was here to see it.

Thank you to the Gulf Coast Runners and the Naples community for your encouragement, support, and love. I wouldn’t be doing this without you. You are motivating and inspiring.

Still have some faster racing in these legs. Excited to see where they take me.
