Thursday 8/20 ~ F^3 Beer and Burgers 5k
Time: 50:55 16:26/mile pace walking.
Over the summer (I am just realizing how bad I was at keeping up with my summer posts), I trained with CARA for their Summer Six Series. The Summer Six trained me to run right after work, and enjoy a beer right after my run. 🙂 So obviously, Beer and Burgers 5k was the perfect goal race.
I asked a few friends if they wanted to do this one with me, and got to do spend some QT with my BFF. It’s rare that I do a race where I stick with someone I know, so this was fun. We walked the course and kept a pretty nice pace!
The volunteers were fantastic. Incredibly friendly, encouraging, and everything went smoothly. A smaller crowd, and EVERYONE wanted a burger after! The food was great, and all in all, I really liked it! This one is on my list to run next year!
Also, I always think about how hard it is to be a “slow finisher” or to cross a finish line to weary volunteers and people wandering all over the course. When this man crossed the finish line, everyone cheered. I LOVE runners.
