BURLINGTON, ON

 

The race was run.

It was a solid run – just shy of the target Ashley Worobec set out for herself when she left Burlington on Saturday to run in the New York City Marathon.

For the record.

For the record.

Ashley with name

Her name in there as one of the finishers in the 2019 race.

Ashley with bib number

The bib number – it will probably go up in the office along with the Pan Am Torch.

In a short message she said: I’m SUPER HAPPY with how it went today- my goal was 3:30 and I ended up at 3:32, but I gave it everything I had.

My hamstring seized up at Mile 24 so I lost about a minute there when I had to stop and massage it out- I literally couldn’t even bend my knee! Thankfully it loosened up and I was able to continue running.

I was crying tears of joy afterwards once I saw my husband and my friend Michaela.

Michaela and I stayed together until Mile 16 and then she pulled ahead and finished 5 minutes ahead of me.

That was our plan- we would stay together as long as possible, and when one of us (in this case, me!) could no longer hold the pace, the other one would go on ahead.

Back at the hotel and it’s time to eat and nap! What a great day!!!
