Despite the inclement weather, this year’s Devin’s Dash was a success! With the help of our sponsors, volunteers and race participants we raised almost $6000 for Happiness is Camping. Amazing! The overall race winner and first male was H3’s own Experience Planner Alex Santa, and the first female race was winner Kim Stanziola. The after party included fresh H3 smoothies and healthy snacks compliments of the H3 Culinary Team, great music, a raffle drawing for the amazing prizes donated by our sponsors, and of course, post-race stretching to prevent any injuries. The official Devin’s Dash Page is here http://www.h3daily.com/devinsdash/ to see the prizes, more race results and sponsors. If you missed this year’s Devin’s Dash Memorial 5K Run/Walk held at Hilton Head Health, here’s a quick photo recap.

For those of you who read my last blog post, you may remember I have been training for my first 10K. I ran the Cooper River Bridge Run 10K on March 31 and am proud to say I survived! Though the day did not go as smoothly as I had hoped, after 01:06:40 and I crossed the finish line!
When my alarm went off at 4:30 that morning, I woke up excited and ready to go. I had invested much of my free time training and the day had finally come. H3 @ Home Wellness Coach Amy Kelderhouse spent much of the morning reminding me to stay hydrated, eat breakfast and stretch. It was about a half hour commute from where we were staying in Charleston to where the race began inMt.Pleasant. When entering Mt.Pleasant, I found out this race had 43,000 participants (a bit of information that Allison and Amy forgot to mention when they encouraged me to sign up for the race). They also failed to mention that we would begin running in waves. The scheduled start time was 8:00 AM so around 6:30 AM Amy went up front to her wave and Allison and I got in line with our group. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous, but Allison did a great job distracting me until it was almost time to start.
8:00 AM came and went and no one had begun running. Next thing we knew it was after 8:30, and though there were announcements and music, no one filled us in on what was going on. Long story short, my wave did not begin running until 9:30. By this time, I was hungry and a little discouraged but still excited to finally begin.
The first mile was very smooth, taking Allison and I 09:40…. And then we hit the bridge, which to my disbelief was one mile uphill! I had spent a decent amount of time training on the bridge here on Hilton Head, but it definitely did not prepare me for this! Another challenge I encountered was having to speed up to go around the people who stopped to walk or were jogging at a slower pace than I was (this is challenging for me to do in general, but running up hill made it even more difficult). To top it off, it was a rather windy day and we were of course running against the wind! Finally, we made it to the top of the never ending hill and I felt a bit of relief. The rest of the race was spent trying to weave around the walkers and enjoying the entertainment that was taking place along the route.
When we finally crossed the finish line I had mixed emotions. Though I did not have a specific time goal, I was hoping to be close to 60:00 and going over by 6 minutes was a little discouraging. Then I allowed myself to realize that I just did something I had never done before and that is something to be proud of! Not only did I complete at 10K (without stopping to walk), one mile of it was up hill and the entire 6.2 miles were spent weaving around other participants. I am pretty sure this was the hardest thing I have ever physically done but also one of the best things I have ever done.
After writing my last post, H3 Alum Lyle Orr commented that Amy and Jeff would have me running a ½ marathon before I knew it… Well Lyle, you were right – I plan to run the Disney ½ marathon in November – training begins soon!
