My Personal Best



This morning I completed my second consecutive 10 mile running race. It was the Twin Cities 10 mile race. We had perfect conditions for running. Temperatures in the mid-40’s and clear. I finished the race on 1 hour and 13 minutes. I averaged 7:24 minute miles.


Compared to last year, I finished 11 minutes quicker! Next year, if I get my doctors approval, I plan to try to compete in the Twin Cities marathon. I know going form 10 miles to 26.2 is quite a jump. I also know that if I train for it there is nothing I can’t do


This year I ran on the Minnesota Stroke Association’s Act FAST run team. We had about 30 runners in the races this weekend. As a team, we raised almost $9,000. I know that this money will help my fellow survivors. Here is an article featuring me that was on the local news : http://www.myfoxtwincities.com/story/23606413/stroke-survivor-to-compete-in-tc-marathons-1st-awareness-team

Dave, that is tremendous. You have put in the hard yards and deserve the accolades. It is great to see the FAST message getting out into the community too. Well done.
