My buddy Adam, from The Boring Runner, put together this little shindig for some local bloggers, the real life version of his virtual 5k race. I got to meet a bunch of people I hadn't met before, and see again some I hadn't seen in a long time. It was a really cool experience.
I was really hoping to PR today, and I thought I had a really good chance since I just ran the course (or a slightly altered version of it) last week. I wasn't able to get my usual warm up in because I was too busy chatting with all the new faces. I figured I'd be alright.
I finished with about an 18:45. Not a PR, but that's still a decent time, and I had a real nice time getting to know all the runners (at least the ones I was able to talk to). One of the highlights was the finisher's medal that Rio handed out. Very awesome. In fact, a lot nicer than some medals I've received from real races.
Thanks to Adam, Lauren, and everyone else who made this an awesome race!
