How is your running going? The Hubbo and I took about 3 weeks off from training to give our legs some time to recover from our half marathon spree in April. But now It's time to start pre-training for marathon training which starts in about 4 weeks. Eek!
Recently, The Hubbo, some of my co-workers/friends, and I ran a fun local 5k here in Tulsa. The Fat Guy's Burgers and Baseball 5k!
But before we get to my typical recap of the race, you may have already noticed something. My blog may look a little different to you. It does. You're not seeing things. I changed the layout and I'm still making changes. I'll be sure to post a blog about how it all went down when it's all done.
So let's get to the race!
This race had two options. The 5k and the Fat Guy's Challenge! Fat Guys is a local burger joint located in downtown Tulsa right by the baseball field.
The Fat Guy's Challenge consisted of running to a burger station and consuming an entire Fat Guy's Burger before being able to run the 5k. At the end of the 5k, participants also had to chug a vanilla milk shake just about .25 of a mile away from the finish line. I ran the 5k because I'm a total weeny when it comes to running and consuming large amounts of food/beer at the same time. The Hubbo on the other hand, ran the Fat Guy's Challenge and said it was ROUGH!
I was lucky enough to get this picture from Angela (in blue). Her family members came down to the race and snapped a few photos and I was just close enough to be included in some of them.
The course wasn't very hilly but did have a couple small inclines so I wouldn't say this is the flattest 5k I've ever ran, but it wasn't hilly either. The best part about the course was running down the ramp to get into the baseball field before we crossed the finish line at home plate!
For registering for the 5k we got:
- 1 Ticket to a Driller's Baseball Game
- Post-Race Fat Guy's Burger
- Post-Race Beer x2
- A Cotton T-Shirt
- Cute Bib
The ticket to the baseball game was good for any regular season home game for the Tulsa Drillers. It just so happened to work out that the same day as the race, they had an evening game at home and Fireworks! So not only did we get to see the Drillers win, we got a nice celebratory fireworks show at the end! Bonus!
Here are my stats:
Division Place: 10th out of 47
Female Overall Place: 67th out of 280
Total Number of Finishers: 531
