So I think if your putting on a running festival
you are Runner’s World Magazine, you pretty much should know what you are doing.
They really do.
- Great Expo
- Awesome Goodie Bag with pair of socks, nice hat, and some other stuff
- Bands and DJ’s out on the course playing great music
- Bagpiper out on mile 4 of the 10K to bring a smile to your face
- Water Stops as indicated
- Getting in and out for Parking easy
- Cold drinks and food at the end
- Easy tracking of finish times
- Port-A-Potties in the Right Place and enough
- Really nice course with lots of police and staff help
- All around a event run perfectly
Now that we know Runner’s World did.
Do you want to know how I did?
I’m going to tell you anyway!!
I really had two nice runs today.
On my 5K, I had to work hard on reigning myself in. I was caught up in the moment and fun of it. I, literally, had to tell myself to slow down (What the hell! When did that happen?). I reminded myself that this was not my targeted run and just warming up. My goal for this race was to finish around 30 minutes because I did want the hour in between the two races today. I finished in 29:39. Slipped right in under the wire!
I started the 10K around the 9:30 marker. Thought this would be a nice place to start. I paced myself in the beginning as I sometimes go out to fast, but I didn’t hold back a lot. I was feeling good and this was my target race, so I went for it! Had some really good miles and I will admit that I sprinted when I hit the mile 6 marker (aren’t you proud, Jeanene?) My goal for this race was to finish in just under an hour. I finished strong at 57:19.
I’d do the Happy Dance, but I’m tired.
Came home to spend time with family (or was it do laundry). Going back for a good night sleep at Mom’s.
One to Go!!
