So on the way to work last Monday, a local radio station was advertising a 5K run they were hosting, the Stache Dash 5K Beach Run, and giving away two entires. Well, I love to run, so I called in. I had trouble dialing and didn't expect to win, but I wound up being caller #10! Woo hoo!
We were a little worried about if the race would be held, considering the weather when we arrived at the beach.
The course was an out-and-back, out-and-back route. I originally thought the course would be silly, but it actually did a good job of breaking the run in half and keeping us motivated throughout the race.
Katherine paced us, and her goal was to finish in under 36 minutes. Neither of us brought our Garmins or phones because of the rain, so we didn't really know what pace we were running. We did know that once we got back to the finish before the second half, we were just over 16 minutes. I knew if we kept it up, we'd come in well before Katherine's goal time.
Mai Tai Bar.
Question for you: What's the best post-race freebie you've gotten when running a race?
