8:30am, 68°F, Rocky River High School
This was our second year running this race. It’s a nice change from the usual 5K — you don’t often see 4 mile races and the start is on a high school track. Not to mention, the cause is a great one and the energy is always very positive.
We lined up, ready to run, but started by telling each other that we anticipated a bit of a struggle. We both haven’t been running as much as we’d like for varying reasons, so 4 miles seemed like somewhat of an intimidating challenge.
Luckily, we don’t have any extremes to report. This is a good race! And we had a good race! Our times were good, despite expecting something a little slower and more difficult (we both placed 6th in our age groups!) and the weather was great, despite it being a little warm for our taste.
Just like last year, the goodies at the end of the race were amazing: you can’t beat Nooma and some DQ!
