Monday, November 1, 2010

Yesterday, 10 MPH athletes completed the 35th running of the Marine Corps Marathon, fulfilling their commitment and finishing the journey they began in May: Neil A. (4:21:06), Kris C. (4:49:05), Jenn J. (5:42:25), Katie M. (?), Jen M. (4:35:07), Alex M. (3:43:48), Thomas M. (4:02:11), Christy P. (3:58:32), Leota T. (10k, 1:03:57) and Jeff W. (5:40:11).

So, while Jared (of Subway fame) is running 550 miles training for The ING New York City Marathon, our athletes did it on less than 170 programmed miles over five months—most less than 100 completed miles. Katie did not even decide to run until the last minute, and completed the race on CrossFit MPH training alone.

And, thank you to all of the supporters who came out to cheer on our runners!

Congratulations everyone!

    WAY TO GO TEAM MPH! You all are so amazing and inspiring. Sorry I couldn’t be there to cheer you on, but I was very much there in spirit, and you had prayers at not one but TWO church services today (which is where I was during your triumphant victory).

    Thanks everyone for the support pre day and for coming out. Thanks especially to John, Jess and BK for all the coaching.

    Many thanks to everyone who came out to cheer us on today. It felt phenomenal to have the support of MPH.

    Thank you to John, Mel, B-Kay and Jess for all of your hard work getting us through the POSE training and WODs over the past months. We couldn’t have done this without you!

    Runners, you guys were amazing! You should all be very proud of yourselves. It was an honor to be part of your team yesterday.

    Coaches and Team!

    This time (my second) running the marathon was far superior in every way and I know that is because I now have crossfit, our coaches and my team.

    Looking forward to my 7 pm WOD. 🙂

    Congratulations to all the MPH athletes who completed yesterday’s marathon! I am so inspired by your dedication to training and living up to the principle of finishing what you started…

    on another note, Mel wasn’t joking when she said you have to keep moving to complete this WOD under the 15:00 time limit. being three reps of each excercise away from completion — and avoiding the dreaded DNF — hurts, but offered another teachable moment.

  11. bghent | November 1, 2010 at 1:02 pm

    Congrats to all the marathoners. I think you’re all nuts, but in a “proud of you” kind of way. Also, you guys all look really good for just having run 26.2 miles. Did John bring makeup or something or are you just that photogenic? I would’ve needed paramedics on stand by and an oxygen tank, I’m sure. Again, congrats.

  12. Ted | November 1, 2010 at 2:31 pm

    Congratulations, Neil,Leota, Kris, Jenn J., Katie M., Jen M., Alex, Thomas, Christy and Jeff! And fantastic coaching John, Melody, Baykay and Jess!
