KRun 2.0 - SUCCESS

So here we are! The finish line.

I won't toss a bunch of number crunching up for my grad post, I'll do that later, but for now I just want to celebrate!

Still have the 13k to run, it got pushed back by an extra 5k Color Run, Miranda and I did together yesterday. I couldn't have asked for a better finale to my second "run" through (heh) of this program. We had a blast, and it really opened up a new window of active "dates" we can tackle together. Who knows, maybe a Tough Mudder or Spartan lies in our future!?

I'm going to keep pressing for a sub 23 minute 5k, and I think I want to try to run in a more serious race too. I know I wouldn't even be close to the front of the pack, but it would be fun! And while I have to be honest, distance past 10k are NOT my thing, I do want to get faster.

Legs are strong, runs were made, records broken, diet kept pretty tight, cardio vascular strength way up, and an awesome finale with the most awesome girl I know!

Success indeed! 😁

And yes, that's a T-Rex in a tutu. I really gotta up my game next year. Ideas?!

Looks amazing fun and great to run as a couple too. That T Rex must have been boiling!
Dangerous to tout for ideas in this community - Peter H might get his leopard print pants in the post for the occasion!

    Mankini! Do it do it!

    Well done on a successful Run 2.0!

      To have you finish up the program happy, healthy(!) and continuing to set new personal records...what more could you ask for?!?!?!? You absolutely crushed it, Nate, and I know it's all the sweeter to have done it with your sweetheart by your side. Let go of any pressure to run longer. If I could wind the clock back a few (ahem) years, going faster would be where to put my energy. With the kind of effort and dedication you showed in this program and pretty much everything we see you do, you can accomplish what you set your mind to! You are COMPLETE, my friend!

      And, yes, you can borrow Peter's leopard print speedo....

        You're graduation post has put the biggest smile on my face Nate! Golden double HAPPY (ness), huge unicorn, bubbles, t-rex in a tutu, and Miranda and your smiling faces at the end of a 5km covered in colour. You've had a cracking program the second time around. You've increased your number of runs compared to last time and did a sub 25min 5km. You worked hard and deserve everything you were able to achieve. Congrats on another Kenzai badge of honor!

        Charlie Chaplain would look pretty good at the end of next years Color Run :)

          That's awesome! Smart choice going for the color dash together to cap off the program. The 13k can wait a few days. It was cool watching your progress this time around Run-10K. I'm a numbers guy so it was awesome seeing you track your progress. And definitely look for a few 5k and 10k races in your area or short travels to. It's not about being at the head of the pack (so few are up there). But the races on the calendar will motivate your running progression to continue, and come race day, the energy of the race will get more out of yourself than you realize. Awesome work and looking forward to reading the 'stats grad post'.
