For the past 12 weeks, I have been actively training with a pro to run a Marathon Relay. My goal was to learn to run better, to not get injured and to improve my pace and endurance.

I got a little sick and a slight injury but was still able to perform in a 5k on Saturday (the Susan G Komen a Race For Cure) and I ran the 3rd Leg of the Bahamas Marathon Relay.

Here are some pics.
