Beware of Runners


Today was the Celebration of Running 5K - the first race in the Trackshack Grand Prix series. I won't be running the series but my husband is - so I will be attending a few races this year that I am not running in.

I love the atmosphere at a race before it begins. We got there about an hour before the start so we didn't get caught in the traffic coming in. That gave my husband plenty of time to stretch. I left him right before the start to get a video of the start of the race. I made sure I was on the other half of the road where the runners were not lined up - and thought I had found a good place to stand...

Ah well....

He ran an easy race...30:13 was his finish time.

Next up, the Rock n Run 5K on Sept 12th! I will be running that one :-)

Yikes! Glad no one got hurt. Congrats to Jim for finishing the first race of the series. I won't be working race day mornings until after my iron races are done (mid Nov).

Hi Lizzie - decided I didn't want to run that many races this season with work, school, etc. Maybe next year :-)

Thanks for Running for the Fallen this weekend :-)
