Let me just start off by saying, this is the most fun race I have ever done! (I’ve done a total of 6 races, 5 were 5Ks and one 5 miler). We had gorgeous weather and everyone was just in SUCH a good mood. People were dressed up (I think that adds so much energy to a race), and there was free beer waiting for us at the end!
It was very crowded! We (my mom, brother and I) couldn’t even get into the street, but we had to wait on the sidewalk until the race started and the crowd started moving. Luckily, it was chip timed so it wasn’t a big deal.
Now there were some serious highlights to this race. First is the swag:
AWESOME tech shirt by Brooks and I love those little bags they give you. They are GREAT for races.
And even though the first place winner clocked at 14:51, I was not that far behind with my personal best!….. 30:32.
Ok, so the secret is out – I am slower than slow! This course was pretty flat, and I still couldn’t break 30 minutes (which was my goal). Ah well, you win some, you lose some.
