The race started later than posted and it seemed pretty disorganized. Only one person really seemed to know what was going on.
We finally started running. This race was through a neighborhood, and was generally ok, but they expected everyone to stay on sidewalks for a large majority of the run. It was way to crowded for this, and Marty and I ran on the side of the road. The course was pretty hilly. We would get to the bottom of a hill, only to go back up.
But we did pretty good with 2:1 intervals and finally finished. Marty had to leave, but I decided to stay for the awards and raffle. Again…I waited…and waited…and then finally I left. I later found out that awards didn’t even happen until 2 hours after the race started. FOR A 5k! Really, everyone had finished in under an hour…I’m not sure why they waited that long…especially when I’m sure none of the award winners were still there.
Oh well. I got my 5k done for Streak Day #17.
Marty ended up getting 9th place in the category Mens 40+. If there was a normal 50-59, Marty would have placed 2nd.
I ended up getting 10th place in the Category Womens 15-39. If they did the normal 20-29 group, I would have placed 3rd.
