Race Report

This is one of my favorite races to run. It is a large and popular race with a low key atmosphere. Most people are there to simply have fun and run by the beach. It is a large race, capped at 10,000 runners/walkers so I met my dad there early. We warmed up, walked around and took in the race atmosphere. Even my mom came for the race. We were lucky to get a beautiful, albeit HOT day. Many of the town residents come out of their homes to cheer the runners on and spray them with hoses. The course is flat and fast and I was hoping to beat my previous 5-mile PR, run on this course last year of 33:05. I missed it by 30 seconds but when I crossed the finish line, I was given a card saying I was the 15th female finisher. I was thrilled to finish 15th and traded my card in for a coffee mug with the spring lake logo given out only to the first 100 male and female finishers. When I checked the official results on line later, I was listed as the 21st female finisher. Oh well, either way, I got my mug :)

Hope you are having a lovely weekend!
