November 2014 City of Oaks

I won! I won! Thanks to Ron Wahula, Director of City of Oaks and Big Boss Brewing run club, I won a race registration in a raffle drawing.  Scheduled two weeks before Richmond; it was a perfect, final 13.1 training run.

I chose City of Oaks last year as my first full marathon; I love this event. Great route through downtown Raleigh, lots of familiar faces,  great crowd support and the best beer garden in the Triangle.

It was a great race, my legs felt great and I saw lots of friends along the way. I finally broke through the 1:54 barrier I’ve been stuck at all year with fresh half PR.

The best part of the day was watching @triangleexplorer accomplish his goal of crossing the finish line in sub 4 hours.
