It's my third year running this event and I just love it!
First off...it's 5 bucks.
You just can't beat that:)
Second it's local and benfits a great running club called the Barron Park Striders. They have a kids chapter and dseeing kids running makes me happy.
Thirdly, a ton of my friends run it with me!
Fourth, if you bring a small 5 dollar wrapped gift you can choose one when you cross the finish line. How fun is that?!
This year was a bit cold but loads of fun. I made the goal to run with one of my friends Lisa and even though I started letting the math get in the way " if I pass this person/group I'll be higher in the results" She helped me remember that I was doing this for fun and it's not fun to ditch your friend, run really hard for a race you didn't intead to "race" and end up running alone and finishing in the middle of the pack.
