OMGosh this was such a fun race! And a HUGE race! And the first race where I had family there cheering me on!!! My mom and sister Amy came to watch me run...that meant so much to me for them to be there!
The route was fairly easy and flat. We even ran by the water some and that was so pretty! The weather was great! It was hot but there was a nice breeze that kept blowing and kept it cool. Running against that wind however slowed me down a little! I ended up with a finish time of 32:15! Not too shabby!
The after party was awesome! There was jambalaya, fruit, muffins, chips, 4th of July cake...and lots more! I have never seen so much food at a race! They had music and dancing too! It was fun! And the race packet was great too...I got a nice tote bag filled with fireworks, my tank t-shirt, coupons, etc. I will DEFINITELY be running this race again next year!
WARNING: Lots of pics below..because I had photographers there! Thanks Mom and Amy for taking pics!
