Another great Pat’s Run

Posted by Darren Urban on April 25, 2015 – 12:59 pm

Pat’s Run was this morning, and it couldn’t have gone much better. The weather was perfect, some 30,000 runners were on hand, and a ton of money was raised. A handful of Cardinals were on hand — Larry Fitzgerald, Patrick Peterson, Lorenzo Alexander, Rashad Johnson and Justin Bethel (pictured below, with me and VP of media relations Mark Dalton) as well as former Card Jay Feely as official starter. Ambitiously, video gurus Tim DeLaney and Coby Rich ran alongside players with (heavy) camera equipment for what should be a couple of good videos down the road, so be on the lookout for them.

And if you haven’t had a chance to take part in Pat’s Run, consider doing it next year. It’s only 4.2 miles. You have plenty of time to get ready.

    Thanks for participating and getting the word out for this great cause Cardinals. First one my family and I have missed, due to a combination of ankle injuries, flu bugs, PSAT prep courses and NYS basketball games. We’ll be back next year.

    Side note…and I’m just extrapolating from Bethel’s stats of 6′-0″, 190 lbs on the roster…but D Urban I didn’t realize you were 6′-5″, 255! Our solution at OLB, perhaps? :p

    Hey Darren,
    Is there any chance John Abraham becomes a post draft signee For the Cards?

    RE: Abraham

    Abe hasn’t even been cleared to play to the best of my knowledge. In any case, no, I don’t expect him back.

    You’re 6-3 195????? Grigson said if you have the athletic traits, you can make it in the league. So Darren, how fast is your 40 time and how much can you bench press?

    RE: Size

    I can assure you I do not have the athletic traits. Other than playing some pickup hoops once in a while.

    Darren: 31:09, is that your PR? Thats running 7 to 7.5 minutes a mile, not to shabby.

    RE: PR

    I actually was able to get under 30 minutes a few times. But those days are gone.

    My father and I ran (walked, who am I kidding) the first “shadow” run up here in Flag last year. It was a full blown blizzard, but we figured Pat would’ve done it so we did. This year we got my mother and girlfriend to join us. Again, it was cold and windy. Only had 30ish people participate but I am glad it came here. My father is a HUGE Cardinals fan and cancer survivor. So to be able to get together and support my two heros is a true blessing.
