🐧 Penguins 6.6k Race Recap!

🐧 This was such a flippin' cool event, even though I ran it coming off a 24+ hour shift. Still can't believe I PR'd my 4 mile and 6.6k times during this! 🔥

🐧 I love running into friends at races, it has me pen-grinning from ear to ear! 😊

🐧 Part of me is sad the fall racing season is almost over. Waddle I do without races?! 🤷🏻‍♂️

🐧 More race recap reels coming soon! 🙌

Pittsburgh Rogue Runners had so much fun this past Sunday at the 10th annual mariolemieuxfdn and pensfoundation 6.6k Run presented by highmark! This race is one of our favorite races to kick off the fall race season, and it’s always so nice to high five 🖐🏼 Mario at the finish! Big thanks to steelcityrrc for having an awesome pace team, including our very own Joy as the 12:30 pacer! We also had two members, Chuck and Bernadette, recognized as “perfect racers” as they both participated in every race! Big thanks to all of the sponsors and volunteers who worked so hard to make this great event happen! ...

🔥 PR after a 24 hour shift?! 🔥

This morning, I ran the Penguins 6.6K... AFTER working a 24 hour shift (I'm crazy, I know). 🐧 I didn't leave work until an hour before the start time, and I went into the race with no expectations other than to have fun. During mile 2, I was so tired I seriously considered walking, but I kept going, charging up all the hills Pittsburgh had to offer. You can bet I fell asleep as soon as I got home. 😴

However... I just went back through all of my runs and intervals since I started running a year ago and realized that this was both a 4 mile and a 6.6k PR for me! 🤯 I'm honestly shocked considering the circumstances but thrilled at the same time! It's really motivating to see my fitness improving slowly but surely.

Big thanks to all of the volunteers and sponsors for putting on an awesome event! 👏 mariolemieuxfdn pensfoundation penguins runwithp3r highmark upmcsportsmed core vitalant clearviewfcu
