I’m so happy to announce that the piraterunners have completed their first 1/2 marathon together as a team. It was such an amazing day. The weather was perfect and the energy was electric. I’m so proud of each one of us! Our official times are as follows:

Tony (Plum smuggler) Welch – 2 hrs 06 min

Brad and Sarah Bodnarchuk (Yes, my amazing husband ran with me the entire time!) – 2 hrs 30 min

Lisa (Lola) Welch – 2 hrs 45 min

Trish (“the pirate runner”) Ideias – 2 hrs 55 min

I can’t forget to mention that both Kayson and Stella completed their first 100m race and Deacon, his first diaper dash.

Deacon, resting up for the big race.

Well, he slept through it but recieved an A for effort.

Stella, super excited about her medal!!

I took the time to ask each of my fellow piraterunners the following questions. Just to get their final thoughts on the run.

1. Who or what was your inspiration during the run?

Tony: My Dad.      Lisa: Other runners who were running in memory of someone.

Brad: My cousin Luke.    Trish: My husband and daughter.   Sarah: My husband

and his amazing cousin Luke.

2. What song “pumped” you up the most during the run?

Tony: Not afraid-Eminem.   Lisa: Soul sister-Train   Brad: Cochise-Audioslave

Trish: Bamboo Banger-MIA   Sarah: Brooklyn we go hard-JayZ

3. What mile did you think…”I don’t know if I’ll make it?”

Tony: 10. When my knee gave out.   Lisa: 12. So close, yet so far away!

Brad: 8. Blister was really hurting.   Trish: Always knew I would. 😉

Sarah: 12. So close, yet so far. Body was hurting!!

4.What was your first thought after crossing the finish?

Tony: Thank God!! What’s my time?    Lisa: Hallelujah!!!   Brad: I need food!!!

Trish: Thank God I’m done!!!   Sarah: Thank you God!!! Where’s the bananas??

5. Which body part hurt the most after the run?

Tony: Right knee.   Lisa: Crotch pain, like pregnancy.   Brad: Knees.

Trish: Legs hurt the most. Felt better running than walking.

Sarah: My hips, lower back, butt, knees…..

Congrats again to all the piraterunners. Even the mini ones. Can’t wait to read all of your individual blogs and see more pics. Now back to my glass of wine.  SB
