Texas Independence Relay (#TIR2014)

Last weekend, I had an amazing time running the Texas Independence Relay 2014 edition with a bunch of old and new friends.

This was an amazing race to do before I start tapering for the Boston Marathon which is going to happen in a few weeks. On top of that, the weather was nearly perfect, during the day bluebonnets were in full bloom like I haven’t seen in many years.

During the evening, we witnessed a beautiful Texas sunset:

So how did I end up doing? I ended up running 4.5 legs (we had an injury so I ran half of an extra leg):

Overall, I had a blast and was impressed I was able to keep my average pace under 7:00/mi for the whole race, this puts me in great shape for the Boston Marathon. We actually ended up finishing 2 hours ahead of schedule roughly which put us finishing 8th at the San Jacinto Monument.

As a reminder, I’m still fundraising for the The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society so if you have the means, please consider a donation for this great cause. I promise to live tweet everyone thanks during the marathon as a token of appreciation.
