Steven's Half Marathon PR

Steven's previous half marathon PR was 1:34. The goal for today was sub-1:30. These boys showed up to help. On trashed legs.

Jeffrey and Dave spent Saturday and Sunday running two legs of the Western States course. They ran 47 miles in the past two days, with a crazy amount of this - /\/\/\/\/ - elevation galore.

So to top off their monster weekend, they wanted to pace Steven to his PR.

Steven dragged the boys through the first four miles. Maybe a tadd fast, but a solid relaxed pace.

The crazies pulled Steven home up the final climb.

1:28:30. And that is what I would describe as some great friends, and an awesome running weekend!
