Pretty in Pink 15k Race report
This race is pretty infamous for being a difficult course to navigate (easy to get lost), challenging to run (lots of turns, ups, downs, and a ridiculous 180 finish into the finish chute), and annoyingly late in the morning (they run it AFTER the 5k is completed and everyone is done with the first race).
Fortunately, it was fun, and I hung out with a ton of friends, played with a bunch of dogs, high-fived tons of runners on the double loop and everyone was cheering one another on, and then finished with going to a party at my friend Dow's house where I almost adopted a rescue dog as well as discovered "candy bacon" which is now my new favorite food.
The actual race went okay, but I could tell my head wasn't in it today. I just didn't feel like pacing anything or focusing. I think that I certainly could use a break from racing at the moment. It's odd how it can be so easily overdone.5310
