Countdown to Chicago
Congratulations to everyone who ran in the Huffin Puffin yesterday. ANE was fully represented in the Marathon, Half-marathon and the Relay. Despite the head wind (esp for marathoners) and the humidity, there were PBs all around. I was proud to be part of the third place relay team (the PJs), where we collectively ran the marathon distance in 3:09. It was great fun, following our team mates, cheering them on and watching all the other runners throughout the race. Quite a different perspective! With all of our team completing in the relay for the first time, I know seeing that finishing time added to our on-going respect to those faster marathoners!
