Kelly's Logan House: Registration and post race activities:
Me and Melissa
Races2run.com seems to start their races not with a gun, but with a freaking cannon. Always scares the bejesus out of me.
There were about 200 people participating in the race.
And we are off:
And we are off:
Most of the route used for this race was the same as the 10 miler last weekend
I don't know why, but for some reason, I like having the entire road open to run on. Just spaces things out a little better for everyone
The final stretch, downhill for once
Bananas, pretezels, and pizza. Also got a free beer with your race bib.
Turned out to be an outstanding time. I have found that I really enjoy these races down in Wilmington. They are well organized, the routes are well marked, and they are inexpensive. Lots of races in Wilmington coming up around March and April. (including another 5k here at Kelly Logan's House, and of course the Cesar Rodney Half Marathon). Also, I now have a local Wilmington running buddy in my new friend Melissa.
This will probably be it for January races. I will have the Struble Trail run next Saturday, but that is not a race. Coming up in February are a few more runs in West Chester, Downingtown, Ridley Creek State Park.
What a great way to start off the New Year:
- 5 races
- 4 runs with the Downingtown Running Club
- my first 10 miler
- made a new running buddy
- (this is an estimate) but I probably made Chris Felix spend between 30-45 minutes of his life standing in cold weather, waiting for me to finish races. This is what I am most proud of so far,
