The first one I did was the Fools 5K. Trekman Racing is a local company who puts on quality race events. They also sponsor our roller derby team! I really liked this race. The course was in one of the state parks. Very pretty, but it was freezing that day!
I liked this race because they line participants up by their average mile time. So slower ones like me, started in the back. I normally do anyway, but there are a lot of people who start where they shouldn't. My goal was to finish under 40 minutes, and I finished in 39:21.
There were three color stations, and dirt and worms to eat at the end.
Pictured with me is Abby Long-Legs, Desmo, Little Desmo, and Occupational Hazard. The weather was lovely that day.
It may be a little excessive to do four 5Ks in one month, but if they are for a good cause, I figured I could spare a couple hours out of my day.
