When I originally signed up for this race I thought it was on the 19th of April, but then later found out it was on the 12th. Well I already had a race on the 12th in the morning, so I was bummed. Then I realized this race started at 11 a.m. so I could do both races. Super awesome.
This race was close to my home at the Terry Trueblood Park. A mostly flat course. This race was my 2nd 5K of the day. I thought I was going to take it easy. However to my surprise I ended up running it faster than my first 5K of the day, guess I was good and warmed up.

But I'll take it and I won't complain. I've been training hard and I ran hard.
For Overall results click here. I was 23rd out of 138 overall.
Out of all Females I was 11th of 89. Here are a few pictures from the day.

|Scott and I before the race. I talked him into this race because it had a 1 mile fun run for the kids and I thought he might like it. Plus they were giving away FREE bike helmets for children under 12.|
