Mark and Edie,
Here are a couple pictures taken at the Redman - in case you would like to post on you sites as a follow-up. The clock in the photograph shows finish time as 15 hrs 33 min and 51 seconds.
Thanks for all you help - The Brooks running shoes that I purchased from "Geaux Run" worked out really well. My time for 26.2 miles on hoof was 7 hrs and 3 min. Not bad for 6 weeks run training after purchase of shoes (ran 5 miles twice a week - 1 hour run sessions). I think that says a lot for yours and Edie's excellent fit you did in the Brooks running shoes.
For the Redman I finished 30 minutes under my personal goal of 16 hours and I finished the triathlon injury free.
Edie and Mark, Thanks for all you help!
Official Redman stats are attached.
Best regards - Steve Howard
I love success stories like these. This is why we opened the store. I think it was Steve's effort and determination that got him to the finish line more than anything else, but I sure am honored to be even a small part of his day!
Thanks to Steve for sharing his story with us!
