H+P at the 2013 Road2Hope

The last massive 2013 team-race for Health and Performance was this past weekend in Hamilton at the Road2Hope half and full marathon!  The team showed another ridiculous level of improvement.  If you recall, two weekends ago, a PBPB (personal best personal best) was set in the total number of personal bests achieved.

This past weekend, fewer athletes raced, so it was impossible to achieve a new PBPB.  HOWEVER, we did manage to reach a new personal best DIFFERENTIAL personal best- a PBDPB.  In other words, the sum of the total minutes taken off our previous PB's was the best we have ever seen at one given race.  Great work team!  

Jordan and Greg hammering away!

Here are the results along with the PBD (personal best differential):
