I finished this race on March 24, 2012. Since it was only six days after my last half marathon, I got with a couple running friends and we decided to start walking the race. I walked and talked for about 10 minutes. Then, it hit me - I was in a race! I didn't say a thing, just started running!
The course had lots of turns but was a disappointment with water stops - about every two miles and it was hot. I was used to every mile in my previous races. Other than that, it was a great race and I would probably do it again.
We got a finishers medal for the 10K.
They also gave a 35-year commemorative glass.
Here is one of my post race pictures:
Major disappointment was no food. I did manage to get water - that's all. After I made that hour long trip home, took shower and went out to a much deserved breakfast.
I'll just add another race I did on April 15th. Windermere Run Among The Lakes 5K. Not much to say about this race. My 2nd official (chip timed) 5K. Almost 3/4 sand. I didn't like running in the sand and will not do this event. The food was great though - bananas, bagels, Chick-fil-A breakfast sandwiches, popcorn, coffee, Gatorade. Many vendors giveaways - cups, bags, etc.
One last thing. This blog entry will push me to 60,000 Sparkpoints and another trophy - level 18! Now that's a lot of sparking!
