The Crim Festival of Races 2012

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

Saturday 25 of Aug was the Crim Festival of Races in Flint, MI. The races include a 10 mile, 8K, 5K 1 mile and the Teddie Bear Trot.

16000 people took part in the races.

This weekend was spent with my family. 14 of us took part in the different races. 6 of us ran/walked the 10 mile, 2 the 8K, 5 ran the Teddie Bear Trot and mom volunteered to hand out water at her church which is about three blocks from the finish line.

I walked the 10 mile race my goal was to finsh in under 3 hours. It was a very warm day it was over 90 by the time I finshed.

That's me in the pink at the two mile point.

I walked with my niece for most of the race. We had a good time talking and spending time together. I was able to stay with her until about the 8.5 mile point, she was ready to do some running but my feet and legs were getting sore, so told just to go on without me.

Approaching the finish line!

I finished in 2 hours and 45 minutes.
