I'm super proud of this medal!
Because I got it with a new 5K PR and my first ever 1st Place Age Group Win!
Disclaimer - This race was tiny! So before you get really proud of me and check to see if Nike wants to sign a deal with me, they probably won't. Besides, I'm more of a Saucony girl anyways. But you never know! ;)
The course is USATF certified for the 5K.
Parking was not an issue at all. The race started at the Cultural Park and we got there early enough my parents parked the car and were facing the finish line directly so they could watch us finish from the car if they wanted to.
We got a nice water bottle, a shirt, and our bib and the race was professionally timed, plus there were awards for age groups.
Is bib considered swag? I know it's required to race, but I keep all mine so I like to think it's a swag-ish. Also, all bibs are not created equal. Some are fancier than others.
Side note! - I need to really work on my photography skills for my blog. I'll take a pic on my phone and think it looks good and as soon as I upload it, I realize that I am NOT a good photographer. #SorryNotSorry
- We ran 3 Half Marathons in April and this race was one week after our last HM.
- I had bronchitis before, during, and after the race.
- I started a low carb diet the week before the race.
- It's getting hot in Oklahoma and I'm not a hot weather runner!
This race was my toughest but it is also my favorite race of all time now. My Mom and Dad got to see me finish! My Dad was also my own personal race photographer, Thanks Dad!
