Justice Jog 5K - Pensacola, FL - April 18, 2015

Justice Jog 5K Race - Pensacola, Florida  2015 - AWKO

I participated in the Justice Jog 5K race in downtown Pensacola. The proceeds from the event benefited the AWKO (Aylstock, Witkin, Kreis, Overholtz) Justice Foundation Scholarship Fund for local seniors. It was a fun 3.1 mile course that went through historic downtown Pensacola. There was a 5K race and also a 1 mile fun run. Right after the race, there was a well-organized street party which included free food tastings from local businesses, and a free kids zone for the children.

This was actually my first race to run competitively for over a year now. I have been traveling and filming obstacle course races, and taking a break from competitive running, so participating in a small race was right up my alley, plus it was in my hometown!

I ended up placing 2nd in my age group, and finishing 7th overall out of 300 or so participants. I did not PR, but I was happy with my time being that I haven't ran a race in a long time. I really owe it to a couple things that have kept me on point with my health and fitness, and that is doing a lot of trail running, P90X workouts, and clean eating along with drinking Shakeology. Most people would fall of the wagon after not competing for over a year, and although I am not at my peak performance level, I have managed to keep a steady level of overall fitness.

I had a great time and even met some new friends who I might say are great athletes. I was happy to be able to still be able to run with the young guns as I am approaching the 45 year mark =). But age is just a number right!

Anyways, I look forward to participating in more competitive obstacle course racing and running events by the end of the year, until then, I plan to continue maintaining my fitness, coaching people through their journey, and growing the sport of obstacle course racing through my race and adventure  travel excursions.

Stay active my friends, and if you need some motivation, tips, or a Free Coach to help assist you with some goals, please don't hesitate to contact me, looking forward to your success!
