The results are in. Congratulations to everyone who ran this morning’s 4.2 mile Pat Tillman run at Arizona state. The emotions were high the weather was perfect the race was one of the most surreal physical feats of my life. All 20 of us competed in and completed the run. With my Pat Tillman jersey strapped to Bob the boxing bag in the back of “Big Yellow” my truck, 20 of CrossFit Scottsdale’s fittest warriors met up at the Edge on wellness @ 5am, Starbucked and fully loaded we met up with 13,360 others to walk, run and push strollers into the 42 yard line of Sun Devil stadium. If you only run one race your entire life this has to be it. Shoulder to shoulder we fought to get passed the schools of runners. After crossing the finish line I dropped to my knees in defeat and began to dry heave… twice. I was actually hoping to meet Pukey for the first time. I deserved to. We all did. Jeff Z finished in under an hour, having ran his last long distance race in 1982, the first thing he said to me back to the truck was when was are next race going to be. Tracey completed her 4.2 in record time as well and Liz shed a few tears along the way for her momma. Najla and Inez who both power walked together finished in an hour and five minutes. Amazing job Team CrossFit Scottsdale. Thank you for allowing me to coach all of you and show your support for are troups and The Pat Tillman foundation.
