She had certainly never run more than three miles at a time. Within several months Holderfield reached her goal and finished her first ever 5K race. She would go on to run many more in But one day her legs felt strong and she pushed on to five miles and collapsed out of excitement when she got home. The weight loss was incredible.
How Fast Should I Run 13.1 Miles?
Holderfield said she lost pounds since that day at Kennywood. She said much of the weight loss actually came before she started running but that the activity helped cap off the achievement. Today she posts before and after photos on her Instagram account and tracks her big runs. She has run 12 miles during training so she will test herself Sunday hoping to complete the full I absolutely love your race!
Great race: beautiful weather, well organized, pretty course. We had a blast at the water stop as always and hope it helped all the runners.
I hope the race overall was a great success for you! Looking forward to working with you soon. Pete Mad Dogs — supporting our athletes at aid stations 2, 3, and 4. I thought the event was really great. The weather was perfect for it and the post race food was very plentiful. Congrats on another good event. Had a great time at Station 6, it was well staffed with 6 very hard working women! Coticchio, Volunteer.

Reviews from Our Other Races
Everything from check in to the awards ceremony was in line to make this race one of the best. The weather could not have been more perfect. I especially enjoyed the awards ceremony which gave me a glimpse into your knowledge of the running community. I had not noticed these personal touches in the past. You seemed to know something about everyone and to sincerely congratulate them on their efforts.
Imagine how it must impact an year old to be so well recognized with such a personal story. You must be pleased to attract so many out of towners, as well as local superstars. Once again, another great race.
And the volunteers and law enforcement, as always, did a superlative job. Each time I have done this race, I have met great people. Keep up the good work, keep the beer cold and flowing, and the traffic out of our way. Do these things, and the race will continue to grow. I just wanted to let you know that I enjoyed running this challenging course. I really appreciate all the hard work you and the volunteers put into running a road race.
This was the second time I have run this course and plan on running it again next year.
Stop Giving It All or Nothing
Awesome job on the holiday halfathon too!! Keep up the good work! Congratulations for the event. I hope to come back in 2 years to run again. Beautiful city, people and course. I ran the 5 mile race on Sunday. After reviewing the race results that were emailed to me. I noticed that I placed 3rd in my age group. Do I get an award medal? They are such fun medals I would really enjoy one if I am entitled. I also wanted to thank you for a fun, great event — I had a great time. I flew all the way from the suburbs of Cleveland, OH and it was -8 and colder in Cleveland for the weekend. I was happy to be in Florida.
The reason I flew to Florida for the event is because I plan to run 12 half marathons in 12 months! I have completed 4 so far. So, you see, I have been a part of many races big and small. I thought over all your race was a good one.

I really enjoyed the challenge of the bridges. The people I spoke with were all from out of state … they were very friendly. Thank you and happy running! Based on what I heard and saw on the internet, the races appear to have gone very well.
While I was not able to run in either of these races this year, please note that I always look forward to running in your races come every December and January. Thank you for mailing me my beautiful starfish award. I received it the very next day after your call. It is beautiful and once again is a nice memory of a great race. Your races are always first class and so worth the drive from Tampa.
“I remember that chilly, sweet morning in Boston.”
The food, the course, the volunteers, and of course, the starfish are what keep people coming back for more each year. I especially love running down the spiral walkway at the end of this race. It is like a reward for making it up that long bridge. Thanks again and see you next time!
