#35 – Runner’s World Half Festival, shaved 10 minutes and lessons learned

A historical moment with running legends
Maricar and Bart Yasso.
5K #35 started at the Steel Stacks in Bethlehem, PA on Oct 18, 2014. It was the beginning of the Hat Trick, a 3-part race consisting of a 5K and 10K on Saturday, and half marathon on Sunday for a total of 22.4 miles in 1 weekend. Each race was timed separately.

This year was the 3rd annual Runner’s World Half Festival and each year, I participated in various events:

2012, my first half marathon 
2013, first hat trick (6 weeks after my first full marathon) 
2014, hat trick
