Event comments:

It was great to see Matt, Jen and Mark! I was happy to finally do a race with Ocky! He rocked!

Coming off of a knee injury, I really could not have asked for much more. I was hoping to have a sub-11 minute mile pace, and I accomplished that. When I look back at where I was a year ago, I have to be pretty happy!
