What a perfect day for a run! I’m going to wait for my mind to digest the race and my calves to loosen up before I start recapping, but talk about a great time!

My goal was to beat last-year me, and I beat last year’s time by a little more than two minutes. Yee hoo! And considering my, ummm, lack of training, I’ll definitely take it. Here are this year's St. Malachi 5-mile results.

Congrats to everyone who ran St. Malachi this morning. Out of the eight (EIGHT!) people I originally had signed on for Malachi, I was the ONLY person who showed. How sad is that? EIGHT! And then there was one. There’s a reason I don’t trust anyone.

But I do trust my family to always be race-side for me. Thanks to my mom, Neil and Nino for cheering (and running with) me up that last hill. And then feeding me bratwurst. Yum!

Slacker commenter here ;) Nice job on the race - especially to beat your previous time.

Good job, G! You are working off of a very solid foundation. Expect a lot more pr's this year!

I wish I could have been there too. I definitely missed it! Maybe next year.

Awesome job G. Really sorry I couldn't make it, I just had to do my 20 miler this weekend and decided it was smarter for me to concentrate on it. So pumped for you that you smoked last years time.
