Park 2 Park 1/2 Marathon
So I think that I finally have all the pictures from this run for a race re-cap post. This was my 4th year participating in the Park to Park 1/2 Marathon but this year was different. I was a PACER and super excited about it. I am not going to lie I was a little worried about staying on pace but we had lots of GPS watch's and Map My Run App's going so that helped a lot. A 9:00 minute pace is a nice conversational pace for my sister and I so we really enjoyed being able to chat with other runners and encourage them along the route. When you are a pacer the run is not about "you" its about being out their for other runners. As a pace group we were blessed/honored to be out there as a support person for other runners.
Here are all the Pacers !! What a good Looking Group #P2P +Gazelle Sports

"Your Pace or Theirs"
Heading Towards the Holland State Park,

Turning the Corner in the State Park Parking lot,
you can kind of see Big Red in the background
We Made it to the Finish Line, over all we ended up a few seconds off of being exactly on pace our over pace was 8:58.
When you see the finish it is hard to reign it in sometime because you just want to go !!!!
We had a Great group of pacers
