Greetings from Hawaii! I PRed by 24 minutes and 27 seconds!!! Final time 5:02:54. I was so close to breaking 5 and thought I was gong to do it, but there was a very steep, long hill around Diamond Head (the Volcano on the island) in the last three miles. Just couldn’t do it. I did a 9-1 run-walk and maintained a run pace of about 10.35 and averaged 11ish/mile until the last few miles. All in all, HUGE PR and an amazing race!!!! The best part – I have NO BACK PAIN this morning! I mean, I have mid-back muscular pain, but not the low back and hip pain like before. Yippee! All thanks to my wonderful PT’s at Fast Track, which, as you know, I avoided for many, many years. Thank you for convincing me to finally do PT!
