The three of us together where part of the 40,000-plus that ran it. That's a lot of people, but I never once felt like the route was crowded. And the race itself started in a timely fashion.
As always, it was fun to run around the city
In the end, I crossed the finish line right in the middle of my age group...
...but when I crossed the finish line, I felt like I still had some juice in the legs, so I probably could have knocked off a few minutes if I had pushed it a little harder throughout. But, whatevs. I had fun. And I ran with my mom, who finished shortly thereafter, so that's all that really matters. Well, that and the chocolate
I think I might have to run for chocolate again next year. I can still taste the fondue. And I've still got the itch to race some more, so I'm contemplating a Turkey Trot. Just a 5K, just to see how fast I could bust out three miles. We'll see...
Question: What's the best post-race/race-day swag you've ever been given?
