Fit Fathers Runs the DC Rock-n-Roll Half Marathon

DC-Rock-n-Roll-marathon-Kimatni-Rawlins-Chuka-Agugua-Rashawn-Ciers-Fit-FathersReady, set, rock is exactly what the Fit Fathers squad did this past Saturday in our nation’s capital for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series. The camaraderie was pretty amazing since Chuka Agugua, Rashawn Ciers and I experienced the same brutal winter weather in Maryland with painfully, frigid 2-hour Saturday morning long runs. But the perseverance and determination paid off as we collectively ran one of our best races.

Needing only a banana and coconut water for fuel and electrolytes, I didn’t expect to break the 2-hour threshold because of the hills and of course very slow training runs. However, after hitting mile-6 in about 54 minutes I knew I could achieve more. My fellow Fit Fathers said they felt the same during the 13.1-mile mission. As a band of brothers we were energized with positive vibrations and the extension of life.

So remember, accomplishments do not manifest overnight. A quick fix is never the recipe for long-term success, especially with a healthy lifestyle change. Thank you #RNRDC for the experience!
